Raffles Maldives Meradhoo will be hosting a Cuban Fiesta for the first time in the Maldives during festive season.
From 28th December to 1st January, this idyllic resort in the Maldives' remote and pristine Gaafu Alifu Atoll will draw inspiration from the colour and glamour of Cuba's golden age to host Revolution, an exuberant festival of movement, music and wellness. From awe-inspiring dances on water to a non-stop programme of events and an array of surprises will make this holiday one to remember forever.
Among Revolution's many highlights will be a succession of performances by Cuban-born, New York-based singer, bandleader, composer and dancer Chino Pons. An authority on Son Cubano music, Chino also draws inspiration from cha-cha-cha, bolero, yambu and more to perform joyous, energetic sets that will undoubtedly get the whole resort rumba-ing and rolling.
Dancing is also encouraged by Cuban-born performer Yesenia Fernandez Selier, who will host welcoming dance classes - if one of your new year's resolutions is to move more, then this is an exceptional way to get started. Her exceptional agility can be admired from the most staggering of settings too. Erected solely for the festive period, an incredible floating island with its own palm tree, hammock and even waterfall will be converted from a gently bobbing sun deck by day to a stage come night. After the sun has set over the soft sands of Meradhoo, guests can watch in wonder as she moves magnetically upon the water.
Nightly DJ performances come courtesy of German duo Rob & Flo, with the New Year's Eve party celebration reverberating the spectacular sound of the conga drums and the sultry spirit of Havana. Meanwhile, the days are reserved for full relaxation and regeneration.
Also joining Revolution is Dr Buathon Thienarrom, the founder of Thailand's Sukkasart Institute of Healing Arts. Dedicated to enhancing the health of body, mind and spirit, she will draw from practices including Himalayan sound therapy, Taoism, Tibetan medicine and sleep therapy to induce in guests a sense of supreme restoration. For those who are concluding 2019 somewhat worse for wear, her healing hands promise a new start and fresh hope over the year to come.
Only a 55-minute domestic flight from Velana International Airport followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride away from Kaadedhdhoo Airport, Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is located at the southern end of the country, near the equator on the Gaafu Alifu Atoll.
