Launched in time for Christmas 2011, the ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ package will also be available throughout 2012. Guests booking the package get the resort’s beautiful yacht all to themselves for the evening where they can sail away under the stars to wherever they please, stopping to admire a coral reef or to watch dolphins play. On board the yacht will be the Sommelier with a selection of the guest’s hand-picked wines which could include the 1947 Chateau Mouton Rothschild or maybe the 1982 Chateau Petrus*.
Also on board is Executive Chef Mark Rowsell-Turner who will create a memorable feast of the guests’ favourite dishes using only their favourite ingredients, be it foie gras and finest steak to much more exotic ingredients. As the yacht sails out under a starry sky, the musicians will set the mood by playing the couple’s favourite songs.
Back on dry land, Conrad Maldives pulls out all the stops for Christmas and New Year celebrations. Events include a New Year’s Eve show on the beach with live bands, fire eating, acrobatics and the first-ever trapeze show in the country. Midnight is marked by a spectacular fireworks show followed by a DJ and barefoot dancing in the sand until the small hours of the morning.
The ‘Luxury of Being Yourself’ package can be booked directly through the resort and requires 14 days’ notice.
* wines over US$1000 per bottle may be charged in addition to the package.
