Jumeirah celebrates the opening of Vittaveli in Maldives
December 30, 2011: Jumeirah opens its second resort in Maldives in 2011, the Jumeirah Vittaveli, which recently received its first guests. Located a mere 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé International Airport, Jumeirah Vittaveli is a convenient option for travellers visiting the Maldives.
Jumeirah Vittaveli offers 91 villa-suites, all with their own spacious private pool. The resort introduces a variety of accommodation options on the island and over water. Other feature highlights include three restaurants, a bar, Talise Spa and comprehensive facilities for young children and teenagers.
Every consideration has been taken for the enjoyment of the younger guests as well as preserving peace and tranquillity for the adult visitors. The resort features Sinbad's Kids Club for children from two to 12 years of age, and a teen club for those aged 12 and above, both offering interactive, fun and educational programmes for all ages. In addition a dedicated family and children's pool has been created, adjacent to the Kids and Teens clubs.
The resort also offers specific children's menus in all three restaurants and throughout the in-villa dining menu. Even Talise Spa has introduced special treatment programmes for families. Another major focus for the resort is its gastronomic offering. Introducing a wide variety of cuisine catering to every type of palate, Executive Chef Kai Boeddinghaus, whose work in Kameha Suite in Frankfurt previously earned him a Michelin star, maintains a culture of excellence in the resort’s three restaurants, whether for relaxed al fresco dining by the sea, or cocktails and culinary sophistication within themed interiors, through his own unique style and flair combining modern Mediterranean and Asian influences.
