The Park Hyatt Maldives Things to Do Include a Manager's Cocktail Reception every Saturday, at 6:30pm, hosted by Park Hyatt Maldives General Manager Mariano Silvestri and his team. There are several reasons you may want to go and not miss this:
- Beautiful setting, on the beach, just by the The Bar (it used to be held inside the dhoni, and the beach is far more scenic)
- Complimentary cocktails, mocktails, wine and appetizers. As the Maldives is Muslim, alcohol is brought in solely for the resorts, and is very expensive. So if you do enjoy a drink or two, it's nice to enjoy this compliments of the resort.
- Live Maldivian music, drumming and dancing; some guests even participated in the dancing. See my video below
- Chance to mingle with management and guests, although in practice most guests (largely couples) keep to themselves.
The Music and Dancing
At about 7pm, there was live Maldivian drumming, singing and dancing.
After an initial couple songs, some of the performers invited guests to join in. One of them even invited our son, who did his best to keep up, although group dancing is not really his forte.
The Manager's Cocktail Reception at the Park Hyatt Maldives is a lovely offering every Saturday, and if the weather cooperates, it's definitely worth going for the views, drinks and a taste of Maldivian sining and dancing. The one thing I would have liked is more management interaction with the guests. The staff were definitely great about asking us if we'd like another drink, but no one on the management team came by to ask how everything was so far.
