Jumeirah Vittaveli celebrates Oktoberfest in style

Continue your Oktoberfest Celebrations in the Maldives, with authentic Bavarian tracht and fare, served beachside!

Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives is celebrating Oktoberfest, Munich’s most iconic festival, with a tropical spin. Set to the backdrop of the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean guests can experience the festival like never before.

Jumeirah Vittaveli is proud to announce their collaboration with an authentic Bavarian costume designer – Daniel Fendler has been designing stylish ‘Tracht’ for more than 15 years and dressed such stars as Helene Fischer, Florian Silbereisen, Sylvie Meis, and Olympic ice skater Kathi Witt. Guests visiting beachside restaurant MU Beach Bar & Grill will be welcomed by waitresses and waiters decked out in authentic Bavarian garb – from Dirndl, over apron, to Lederhosen for the gentlemen. With the mood properly set for a fun day in the sun, the resort’s ‘Bierzelt-Bedienungen’ (waiters/waitresses) will serve guests a selection of authentic Bavarian dishes such as Nuernberger, Frankfurter or Kasseler Rippchen, accompanied by a traditional refreshing German drink.

The Jumeirah Vittaveli Oktoberfest will last until 15 October. Besides the celebrations at MU Beach Bar & Grill the island’s water sports centre is offering flyboarding for the adventurous and for those looking to experience the wonder of the underwater world, there are diving and snorkelling excursions to see turtles and magnificent shipwrecks. On the island itself, guests can turn to the spa for an afternoon of rest and relaxation or lounge along the beach facing the crystal clears waters of the lagoon. For the evenings guests have the choice of a culinary journey through India in the resort’s signature restaurant Swarna, or an over-water fine dining experience featuring French cuisine at Fenesse.

So far the resort has celebrated a vibrant Chinese New Year, an Alice in Wonderland themed Easter and a Carnivals around the World Festive season is still to come.
