Experience Eid al-Fitr Celebrations at Hideaway

Across the globe, Eid al-Fitr is celebrated to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It marks the culmination of a month long fasting and religious observance and is a time of joy, gratitude, and togetherness. Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa invites you join them in this celebration from 11th until 13th April, a unique opportunity to experience the traditional culture of the Maldives at this very special time of year.

Maldivian culture and folklore is bursting with stories of magic, sorcerers, demons, spirits and monsters and to start the Eid celebrations at Hideaway we begin on 11th April with the traditional Parade of the Bodu Mas. ‘Bodu Mas’ translates to ‘Big Fish’ and depicts the story of a big fish, along with Maali (ghosts), which had come out from the sea and there followed a long struggle by the villagers to catch this fish, it is said that success came with the help of a holy man. The reenactment of this traditional tale involves a huge fish made from woven palm fronds and caught by a group of fishermen – we hope you can join us on the beach for this cultural spectacle. The evening will be completed by an Eid themed buffet, traditional BoduBeru drumming and dancing.

Guests are invited to join Hideaway’a Arabian Fairytale on Friday 12th April, a magical evening under the stars where you will be taken on a culinary journey through the Middle East featuring the finest and most authentic dishes of the region. There is a supplement payable for this special 4-course dining event.
