Message from the Resort Manager
Again, we made November a very special month for all Islanders!
We began the month in a very fun way to mark the celebration of the Islanders’ Halloween party at our very own Kobaaba Bar. The turnout was exceptional, with Islanders wearing their fairy costumes, face painted and all taken through the tunnel of horrors with scary witches and other treats and tricks. It was indeed a very successful gathering!
After fun, we also worked hard to complete all our action plan for the MOT inspection, hence securing our Resort License for the operations. Kudos to all who passionately gave their full support throughout the time.
Moreover, we also added another long waited feature for our Islanders, meaning the official opening of our Islanders Beach. We received tons of appreciations for this new facility.
In addition of supporting our Islanders’ community, special island projects such as beautifying and upscaling our gardens, were also reinforced with great participation of one and all. The coconut grove will be soon converted into a renowned place of our home-made and home-grown concept! Certainly, all these major works in our Island Bliss won’t be possible if not with your dedication, teamwork and never-ending support!
Indeed, it is with great satisfaction to see that we have made it thus far and now embarking on the last stroke of 2019. As we are getting ready to welcome all our notable guests, the whole management team joins me to share our excitement for the upcoming yearly Islander’s Party and festive celebrations!
Surely, looking forward to more blissful and fruitful year end with all of you!
Halloween is widely celebrated in the evening before the All Saints Day every 1st November. The US and European countries are keen of celebrating this in the past. This yearly scary celebration made a huge impact and eventually become a tradition in many countries around the Globe. In Amilla Fushi, we have celebrated this event on 3rd November with our Islanders in Kobabaa Bar. The entire place turned into a graveyard, spooky decorations were all around with the highlight of scary ghost’s tunnel which sets the mood for Islanders to have a fun filled party that night. Indeed, this year’s celebration was tagged as the grandest, scariest and funniest!
