Dusit Thani Maldives is reportedly preparing for a long weekend "filled with joy and celebration" marking the Islamic festivities of Eid Al-Adha.

The events under the Eid celebration activities will begin on July 9, with prayers at the football ground led by the resort's resident Imaam.

This is followed by a complimentary trip to a neighboring residential island for guests to "experience authentic local Eid celebrations."

Part of the celebratory activities include a Dhivehi language class led by Dusit Thani's Recreation Manager at the resort's Activity Center and a Maldivian cooking class with expert chefs at The Market restaurant.

Other activities include traditional Boduberu (local drumming) classes and an education session with the Dusit "Safeeru" - culture ambassadors.

The Eid celebration activities will reportedly conclude with an experience of Koadi Neshun (Maali), a local dance performance; bringing the rich and ancient folklore of the island nation to life.
