On Christmas Day, guests are invited to join consultant sommelier and Decanter World Wine Awards judge Guillem Kerambrun for a decadent gastronomic adventure in the intimate setting of the Indian Ocean's only underground wine cellar, Vinum. Kerambrun, one of the most powerful figures in London's wine scene, will host a private dinner with curated wine pairings from the resort's award-winning collection of hidden gems and rare vintages. 

Continuing the one-of-a-kind experiences, guests are invited back to Vinum on Boxing Day for a refined evening sampling a union of two of nature's best offerings with a luxurious Champagne & Truffle journey. An elegantly earthy menu celebrating the advent of winter truffle season will be paired with five different renowned Champagnes, including Krug Grande Cuvée.

Toasting the arrival of 2020 in sensational style, Huvafen Fushi's New Year's Eve Soirée Blanche will see the island transform into an enchanted white wonderland with dazzling live music and DJ. Serenaded by a live band and saxophonist, guests can revel in the splendour of the finest epicurean delights skillfully prepared by the resort's talented culinary team, before counting down to midnight and an exclusive performance by the world-class DJ Clement.

Other  highlights of the season include Christmas Eve Sunset Cocktails followed by a lavish beach buffet of turkey with all the trimmings, flame grilled fresh seafood and tender meats, à la minute specials at live cooking stations and traditional desserts.  Festive foodie surprises are also in store at Stingray Beach where guests are invited to join the resort's Teppan chefs for a Teppanyaki dining experience, perfectly paired with signature sake exclusively labeled for Huvafen Fushi; and a Lobster & Champagne Grill at signature overwater restaurant Feeling Koi, serving a fine spread of the freshest Indian Ocean seafood including Maldivian lobster and BBQ meats soundtracked by the smooth sounds of a local jazz band.

Taking the festive celebrations beyond its shores, Huvafen Fushi invites guests to embark on its traditional Maldivian sailboat for a truly memorable journey of canapés and Champagne as the sun paints vivid hues across the Indian Ocean.  Guests are also invited to participate and learn about Huvafen Fushi's Coral Reef Rehabilitation Programme, joining the resort's Resident Marine Biologist to adopt and plant their very own coral reef. For kids, Huvafen Fushi delivers a fun-filled festive programme of activities from sand castle building and sand games, to stingray feeding and mini pizza baking.
