What do you get when you combine sunset yoga, beachside sundowners and award-winning restaurants? International Women’s Day at Jumeirah Vittaveli

Why You Should Celebrate International Women’s Day In The Maldives

It may only be March – and just barely at that – but it’s about time for a holiday. Leave your stressors behind and explore the crystal-clear waters and endless beaches of the Maldives. International Women’s Day is the perfect excuse for a girls’ trip and why not celebrate the occasion with a much-needed escape to the most luxurious destination in the world.

The Beach Villa

Nestled on a private island twenty minutes from Male International Airport, Jumeirah Vittaveli is celebrating International Women’s Day by pampering all female in-house guests as part of the #EachforEqual experience.

Begin your day with a sunrise yoga session led by a master guru while overlooking the infinite ocean, before indulging in a delicious breakfast – where ladies will be given a (well-deserved) gift to accompany their dishes. If a sunrise wake-up call is not your cup of tea, then saunter down to the beach for a sunset yoga session instead.

Choose between sunrise or sunset yoga sessions 

The extraordinary culinary team at Jumeirah Vittaveli also offer a cooking class at the award-winning Swarna where female guests will learn the ins and outs of an Indian Tandoor oven. Once you’ve earned your Michelin star, head down to B4R where women will receive complimentary sundowners – which you can enjoy while lounging in an over-water hammock. That is, in case you need to unwind after all the relaxation. End your evening in Samsara’s romantic beachside setting while Maldivian musician Fa’thu sets the mood.

International Women’s Day may only be on March 8 but BAZAAR recommends you take the week off to explore Jumeirah Vittaveli’s offerings, which include the Talise Spa, six dining destinations, a chocolate salon, and countless water-based activities. (Did we mention the chocolate salon?)

Take a cooking class at award-winning restaurants

Whether you’re spending the occasion with your girlfriends or spending quality time with your loved ones, there are enough activities – both land and water-based – to keep every group member entertained. (We did mention the chocolate salon, right?)
