PUBLISHED October 21, 2021 | updated October 21, 2021 03:23

Underwater adventures, cultural activities, beach fashion show, and festive performances set against a stunning backdrop of the Indian Ocean await guests of Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru this year. 

Island Festivities 

The Festive Celebration will begin with the Decorating and Lighting of the Christmas Trees on both islands. Christmas Eve will be traditional with a slight twist as Santa will arrive by dhoni instead of the sleigh on the 24th, followed by lively Christmas Carols while guests enjoy cocktails and canapés. 

On the morning of the 25th, Santa and his divers will visit the Rannamaari Wreck to check out the resident guitarfish, jacks, and batfish, while the evening will be filled with magic and wonders. 

Activities such as Toddy Sunset Ritual and Local Market Experience will showcase local culture and tradition. In addition, Moodhu Collection Fashion Show and Bazaar will commence at Banyan Tree Beach, featuring a selection of Banyan Tree Gallery Items and hand-painted t-shirts designed by the talented in-house artist and the Executive Housekeeper of Angsana Ihuru, Abdulla Shakeeb. 

Guests are encouraged to glam up in white and gold for New Year’s Eve, or they can come as they are, even barefoot if they prefer. 

The much-anticipated activity ‘Swim Across the Channel,’ an 890-meter swim between the two islands, will also take place on the first of January to start the year with fun-filled and healthy activity. 

‘Tis the Season for the Kiddies 

A series of fun activities await for the kids at Angsana Ihuru’s newly opened Kids Club. 

There is something for the little ones every day, plus an exciting kiddies Magic Workshop will leave them in awe. For something a little more festive, kids can decorate their own gingerbread man, create Christmas cards or go Treasure Hunting.
