Carrying on the Maldives’ tradition of storytelling, guests can join under the stars for stories of magic and wonder around the bonfire with Bodu Mas - traditional folktales passed down through the generations.

Adding a dose of magic to Siyam World’s Eid al-Adha celebrations will be renowned illusionist and champion of mental magic, LUCCA. The multi-awarded artist from Vienna will stage a series of captivating performances, enthralling guests with magical acts and illusions of the mind.

Tantalising tastebuds at the resort’s beachfront dining venue, The Cube, will be acclaimed celebrity chef Grégoire Berger.
