MANAGEMENT COCKTAILS AT JONES’ HEADQUARTERS
21 December 2017
6:30pm to 7:30pm
Shimabuku Jones needs your help. Just this morning, a mysterious ‘message in a bottle’ washed up at his Maldivian Headquarters. Inside was an ancient papyrus, bearing a map and the first of a series of clues leading to an ancient lost temple… the doors of which can only be opened on the last night of the year. The promise of life’s great riches awaits successful treasure hunters: immeasurable happiness and good fortune for the year ahead!
Join your fellow festive fortune-hunters at Jones’ HQ this evening for a Maldivian-inspired gathering of quest-commencing proportions in preparation for the expedition ahead!
HATSHEPSUT’S SUNSET SOIREE

Wine was an exotic commodity in ancient times; it was also the preferred tipple of Queen Hatshepsut – Egypt’s longest reigning female pharaoh. This evening’s ‘wine and cheese tasting’ soiree is dedicated to this most regal of rulers.
Join us in the resplendent seclusion of Reef Island tonight for aperitifs, wine and sangria, accompanied by canapés and a spectacular fondue-style Vacherin Mont d’Or. Recline on casual seating beneath stars that illuminate all sorts of intriguing insights and valuable information…

‘Cruise’ into Christmas! The world is your oyster on this stylish steamboat-style spree. All aboard for a decadent night of art-deco designs and ‘deco-ding’ clues that could dramatically propel your quest forward!

KHAN EL KHALILI FESTIVE BAZAAR
Kandu Grill & Pool

7:00pm to 10:30pm
US$145++ per Adult / US$70++ per Child (6 to 12 years old)
Joins us at the bustling Khan El Khalili Bazaar on the most auspicious day of the year: alive with energy and excitement… and a clandestine ‘change-of-hands’ meeting. Can you track down the clue hiding amid the abundance of international food stands?
Wander the bazaar for everything from pasta and pizza to carved kangaroo gyros; Indian street food to mini sliders; whole roast suckling pig to live action tequila prawn tostadas… then browse the stalls for festive gifts and to watch the weavers, musicians, potters and henna artisans at work.
Come one and all… join the Pharaonic procession! Overland and overloaded, Santa is scheduled to grace our ancient sands to bring gifts and goodwill amidst the lost temple chasing… a good omen indeed!
ALEXANDRIA COCKTAILS & FASHION SHOW
27 December 2017
6:30pm to 7:30pm
Undoubtedly one of the Middle East’s most fashionable resort destinations, join us at the ‘Pearl of the Mediterranean’ fashion show – inspired by the glitz and glam of Alexandria – showcasing the latest trends and treasure trinkets. Sip on stylish cocktails, soak up the sophisticated ambience and savour shimmering coastal views…
Have you deciphered the clues and found the key? The guarded lost temple entrance only opens on the final day of the year – so you’re in for a treat if you’ve made it this far!
Party like it’s 1999 (BC!) at this decadent banquet extravaganza, fit for a Pharoah. International cuisine flirts with sophisticated Arabic flavours across pyramidal selections of everything from cheese and cold cuts to hot and cold mezze, caviar to carved lamb ouzi, live shrimp flambé to falafel, pasta to puri and much, much more, plus live music, fireworks and a procession of movers and shakers from the most revered ancient Egyptian dynasties.
But a night of decadence at this glittering treasure trove of wonder comes with a spine-tingling curse: bury the lost temple papyrus within 7 days or be stuck forever in 2017… But that’s tomorrow’s adventure: tonight’s mission is to PARTY!
