A festive tribute to ‘The Story of Raajje’, the story of the Maldives. Raajje means the Country of the Dhivehi People (Maldivians) in Dhivehi, the language of the Maldives.
This year’s Festive Season will be showcasing and embracing the rich heritage from the times of ancient seafarers and fishermen. You can experience new excursions, local traditions and cookery, and explore what life was like in the Dhiveihi Raajje before the Maldives became the picture perfect holiday destination.
The Milaidhoo Family invites you to enjoy the last few days of 2020 and to relax and unwind where the hustle and hardship of lockdowns is left far behind and the focus instead is on what matters most this season: loved ones and joy. Expect culinary splendour, holistic and meaningful experiences, in a setting of barefoot informality on our blissful island where you can let go and belong.
As a special festive season treat, you can join a specially curated day trip “Out of Island” excursion, where you cruise on ‘Saimaa’ – a traditional Maldivian dhoni – to a local island where exploration and adventure awaits. You will visit the fruit and vegetable plantation ‘Anhenun Fushi’ to discover local produce and enjoy a light lunch on the beach. Further, you will also have the chance to snorkel around a deserted island and possibly be accompanied as the dhoni cruises by one of the many dolphin pods in Baa Atoll.
This year’s festive season will be showcasing traditional Maldivian dishes and flavours, dresses and artefacts, and allows you to experience Maldivian culture and the heritage that is honoured in the architecture and lifestyle of Milaidhoo. Cultural shows, local drinks and food tastings will be part of the festive days as well as culinary splendour from all around the world. Celebration cocktail receptions and dinners will create the festive mood encouraging you to escape from stress and winter blues in a serene setting under the starry Milaidhoo sky.
The Milaidhoo Family is looking forward to welcome you to write your story of a small island and to celebrate the beginning of a new year with you.
