Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa Celebrated World Tourism Day 2021

World Tourism Day - Maali Parade at Vilamendhoo Maldives

World Tourism Day 2021 at Vilamendhoo

On Monday, 27 September, the island of adventure of Vilamendhoo joined the celebration of World Tourism Day 2021. The purpose of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation’s ‘Tourism Day’ is to highlight the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political, and economic value.

Vilamendhoo honoured the global observance day with a special focus on local culture and traditional experiences. 

The resort team held their own version of ‘Maali Parade’, a traditional parade that dates back in the Maldives to years ago, involving team members painted and dressed as maali (ghostly figures) marching the island for guests to appreciate the experience. 

The parade was then followed by a series of performances such as Maali Neshun, a traditional form of dance staged by a group of performers painted and dressed up as evil spirits and ghosts – costumes were made of coconut leaves, local foliage, and bio-degradable materials.

Based on ancient folklore, it is believed that a Bodu Mas (a big fish) alongside Maali (ghosts) came out from the sea, and local men and women struggled to catch it. Later on, with the help of a holy man, villagers succeeded to capture it and celebrated the night with beats and dances
