Marriott International is all set to host a spectacular series of cultural festivals from around the world, offering guests a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the traditions of various countries. From Arabia and India to France and Japan, the resort will celebrate the cultural diversity of Mauritius by showcasing the world's most famous festivals. Guests can look forward to authentic cuisine, captivating performances, and traditional rituals representing the essence of each festival. 

JW Marriott Mauritius Resort embraces fantasy and wonder with "Fairy Land: A Magical Encounter", inspired by the fascinating appeal of The Greatest Showman. Starting on December 22, which marks the official festivities, the resort will be brimming with activities, including whimsical arts and crafts classes, gingerbread house decorating competitions, and an enchanted forest walk. The much-anticipated Santa’s Workshop Adventure will be the highlight for every guest.

On New Year’s Eve, the guests will be treated to an enthralling dinner cirque extravaganza combining the grandeur of cabaret, the marvel of magic, the excitement of the circus, and the whimsy of fairytales. 

The festive season celebrations at Le Méridien Ile Maurice are set to offer holidaymakers an entirely different experience as hot, sultry nights season the festive mix. To toast the start of the new year, different wine flights on December 21st at the Cellar are being organised. To stimulate your visual and taste senses, be a part of dramatic teppanyaki cooking displays at Jade Restaurant, and to enjoy a spirited, after-hours Christmas, visit the Magic Dance Party at Latitude 20 Bar on December 25.

Usher in the New Year celebrations on December 31 with a sparkling "Gatsby Affair" gala dinner accompanied by all the razzle and dazzle Le Méridien Ile Maurice is famous for. Be transported to the roaring 1920s, the age of jazz, flappers, and the dashing Great Gatsby. The glamorous evening celebration includes live entertainment, an impressive pyrotechnic display, and a culinary feast accompanied by flowing wine and champagne. 

Among the other highlights is the Obon Festival at The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa, where floating lanterns will illuminate the night, creating a magical atmosphere reminiscent of Japan. The Chinese Spring Festival will feature traditional lion dances and lively celebrations, while Mardi Gras will bring a touch of glamour with its masquerade ball.

For those looking to ring in the New Year in style, the Saint Sylvester Glitter and Bubbles New Year's Eve party at Mystique Beach promises an unforgettable evening of dancing and celebration. Additionally, on January 6th, the resort will observe Three Kings Day, a holiday celebrated in many Spanish-speaking countries, to honour the biblical nativity story of the three wise men.

For travellers seeking a memorable and culturally enriching vacation, this event promises an unforgettable escape to Mauritius, where luxury meets cultural celebration.
