Apollo’s drummers, Zeus-worth feasts and Aphrodite love shots – 2016’s highlights are heavenly in all senses of the word!
AN INVITATION: ‘APOLLO’S DRUMMERS’
6:30 –7:30 pm
Join us to kick off the festive season … and the mythological hunt for the golden disc. Draped in your most ethereal whites, join us for a Landos-meets-Olympus welcome: Apollo’s drummers from the atoll will convene for a grand performance and Dionysus has worked his magic to ensure the Champagne will be flowing.
Dress Code: Beach Whites
TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY & COCKTAILS
Helios’ chariot might be resting in the sunset East, but this festive season will be illuminated day and night by lights, lanterns and stars. Eros will be spreading the love, accompanied by Landos’ celestial carollers and heavenly harpist. Come help ignite the light with a glass of Angel’s Nectar and a dazzling selection of canapés. A magical festive kickstarter that’s great for kids.
A TRULY HEAVENLY CHRISTMAS
Fuego & Poolside
Get ready for a Zeus-worthy feast.
The muses have descended from heaven and draped everything in platinum and pearly white. Heavenly voices spread the festive spirit while the immortals themselves have orchestrated the buffet.
Enjoy Uranus’s heavenly roast chestnuts and Artemis-hunted venison all the way to classic Stollen & Panetone blessed by Icarus himself. Don’t miss the Legend of the Raclette, as told by our very own Mythology Scholar… and did someone mention Santa?!
With music by Billy Fernando and Band.
AN INVITATION: ‘THE BIRTH OF APHRODITE’
6:30 – 7:30 pm
Join the Olympians as they celebrate the birth of their most beautiful being: Aphrodite – adored by some as Venus. With Apollo’s drummers playing in heartbeat rhythms and Dionysus’ team ensuring the cocktails (and canapés) are flowing, witness the personification of love and the message of the season. Keep an eye out for ‘Aphrodite’s Love Shots’!
Protector and ruler of all, the mighty Zeus likes nothing better than to indulge in earthly pursuits on his own ‘heaven on earth’ – Landos Giravaros – an island renowned for its disc-hurling inhabitants. And so was borne the idea for the annual disc-throwing Olympiad, an end-of-year celebration dominated by Discobolus – the only mortal ever to throw the disc the length of the island.
But when Discobolus’ Golden Disc is stolen, Zeus flies into a rage. Demanding that it be returned by the end of the year, immortals and mortals alike scurry to uncover its whereabouts. Will it be found before the year’s final moments, or will Zeus turn the entire universe into a black hole?
Join us on Mount Olympus from 8:00 pm to celebrate the thrilling climax of this year’s disc-throwing Olympiad and The Final Disc Countdown…
8:00 pm: Bubbly and small bites on Mt Olympus
9:00 pm: Dinner in the Heavenly Ballroom
Please refrain from provoking Minotaurs, Cyclops and Centaurs .
Notice: Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the missing Golden Disc, please contact Athena at the Heavenly Reception.
Dress code: Toga or Heavenly Chic
