Experience All the Magic of Easter in Full Bloom at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

Easter is a wondrous time of rebirth and regeneration, and what better  way to experience this magical transition than amidst the full blooming glory of a Spring  Wonderland Adventure on a tropical island paradise. Welcome to Anantara Kihavah  Maldives Villas, where the enchantment of Easter meets the magic of springtime to  reawaken your sense of joyous wonderment. 

Get in the Easter groove on Wednesday 27 March at Manzaru Restaurant as the fun begins by the pool with the Easter Splash Pool Party. With the tunes flowing from the resort’s  resident DJ and a selection of gourmet treats for you to savour, it’s time to make a splash in  a fun-filled afternoon of family-friendly pool games and watersports activities. Then after the  sun goes down, the fun is turned up at Sky Bar with one of Anantara Kihavah’s legendary  White Parties, where white clothes, good times and island glamour are the order of the day.  Don’t worry if you miss it. The next White Party is less than a week away on Tuesday 2 April. 

The excitement builds on Thursday 28 March with an Easter Bunny chocolate-making  session at Plates Restaurant where the resort’s young guests learn to create delicious  treats under the guidance of the restaurant’s chefs. Later in the day, it’s time for the little  ones to head over to the Kids Club to see if they can catch the elusive Easter Bunny! The  resort’s bigger guests have a chance to get into the swing of spring too as they are invited to  engage in some friendly competition at the Easter Tennis Open, featuring both singles and  doubles matches. 

In the evening, guests have the choice of either joining An Island Soiree for an evening of  free flowing Champagne and canapés, or indulging their senses at Six-Metres Below with  Duval Leroy – Dégustation Secrète. Presented by The Finest of Kihavah Wine Dinner, this  exclusive evening of gastronomic indulgence features an exquisite 5-course dining event  expertly paired with versatile Champagnes from Duval-Leroy, all served in the mesmerising  surrounds of SEA Underwater Restaurant, six metres below the ocean surface. 

March 29 is Good Friday and it’s a good day for fashion lovers of all ages. For the more  sophisticated fashionistas, what better way to spend a lunchtime than sipping and shopping  as you enjoy a glass of Champagne while browsing through Anantara’s stunning boutique  collections at Sip ‘N’ Style Champagne Shopping. Fashion-loving kids have the chance to  blossom like spring flowers as they strut their stuff on the catwalk later in the day at the  Spring Chic Easter Kids Fashion Show

Saturday is soccer day, even on a tropical island paradise. Anantara Kihavah’s guests are  invited to join in the Friendly Football Match as they work up a thirst and an appetite for the  evening’s main event, Spring Wonderland: An Enchanting Easter Gala. This evening of Easter enchantment begins with cocktails and live entertainment surrounded by floral  glamour and caressed by the refreshing Maldivian breeze at Manzaru before the fun moves onto Kihavah Beach for the magic of an Easter Gala Dinner with soft white sands beneath  your feet and stunning Indian Ocean views providing the perfect backdrop. As you feast on a  rich array of culinary delights, and live entertainment keep the magical Easter spirit flowing.

As you would expect, Easter Sunday is packed full of activities for the whole family. The fun  begins at the Kid’s Club from 11:30 with Easter T-shirt Painting, as the little ones have the  chance to express their creative side by decorating their t-shirts with everything from  abstract glittery scenes to their favourite characters. Next up, it’s time for the whole family to  come together for a floral-themed Easter Sunday Brunch at Manzaru Restaurant. Bloom  and Brunch features signature dishes from each restaurant, decadent sweets and desserts,  and chilled beverages, all served against the soul-soothing backdrop of live music and stunning views of the Indian Ocean. 

After brunch, the young and young-at-heart are invited to create their own fun Easter  designs with Egg-cellent Chocolate Easter Egg Decorating under the supervision of the  resort’s chefs. Then later in the afternoon, it’s time for more family fun and adventure with  the Grand Easter Egg Hunt at 4:00 pm. Starting from the Kid’s Club, the whole family can  join in the traditional search for hidden eggs amidst the verdant greenery and flora along the  pathway to Plates Restaurant, with the Easter Bunny on hand to provide encouragement  and clues. 

Easter Monday begins with a chance to discover the amazing artistry of THONArtisan, a  local resin artist who draws inspiration from the breathtaking natural wonders of the  Maldives, particularly the shorelines and islands. The Resin Art Workshop is separated into  an adult session in the morning and a kid’s class in the afternoon. Later in the afternoon, the  young guests are invited to put on their pirate hats and join the Easter Bunny on the Pirate Bunny Cruise as they go in search of fun and adventure while exploring the captivating  sights of the Indian Ocean. 

As the sun sets on another day in Paradise, the Finest of Kihavah Wine Dinner Presents a  Journey to Super Tuscan, where the exquisitely-crafted flavours of a 5-course dinner  prepared by Executive Chef Joachim Textor are paired with iconic Tuscan wines by  Anantara Kihavah’s Resident Wine Maestro, Lenka Praveen, to create a perfect harmony of  flavours for 20 lucky guests in this exclusive dining event. 

The Easter programme comes to a close with a friendly Kids Football Match on Tuesday 2  April, but every day is fun day for kids at Anantara Kihavah with full programme of games  and activities available throughout the Easter period and beyond.  

Of course, for many guests, Anantara Kihavah is an island retreat where time moves more  slowly as they connect with nature’s healing energies to revive mind, body and spirit through  the lovingly curated treatments of Anantara Spa. While every day offers opportunities to  refresh and reinvigorate, with the rebirth symbolism of Easter and Spring, what better time to  embark on a journey of rejuvenation than in the blossoming days of Spring Wonderland.
