An uprising of drummers, a tropical tree-lighting ceremony, victory-plotting feasts, and liberation treats – 2017’s highlights are revolutionary in all senses of the word!
AN INVITATION: CASTAWAY COCKTAILS
6:30 –7:30 pm
Join us to kick off the seasonal celebrations with our laid-back castaway-style cocktail party. If you are going to be stranded, this is the place (just ask Wilson!). Embrace the island vibe with our festive drummers; nibble on Bamboo Chicken and The LAST Shrimp; and melt into a tropical dream with Ship Ahoy! Cocktails: one sip and you’ll happily give up any chance of rescue…
Dress Code: Beach Whites
TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY
This year’s tree is a tropical delight, adorned with juicy fruits and island foliage. Come and help us ignite its bright lights with a glass of White Tropical Sangria, freshly roasted chestnuts, and Christmas canapés while the kids toast S’mores & Marshmallows over the fire. With Ukulele island tunes, traditional carols and a dazzling performance by teen flute sensation, Suleiman, this festive kick-starter is great for the whole family.
Pool & Fuego
Feliz Navidad! Tonight let us transport you to a balmy Brazilian beach for an evening of tropical joy, Latin Christmas voices, and juicy fruits of every description! Dine on a sumptuous smorgasbord of Landaa’s festive favourites: freshly roasted chestnuts, Benito’s homemade pates and terrines, Old & New World Oysters, Kalua Pig, Tropical Christmas Carvery and the juicy Island Fruit Bar – plus El Capitan’s Revolutionary Raclette! Sway to the sounds of Suleiman on flute, DJ Nick, Castor’s Carollers and keep your eyes peeled for Santa’s new ‘blueberry’ ride. Merry Christmas!
AN INVITATION: HAVANA CRUISIN’
Tonight we’re paying tribute to Havana’s eclectic elegance: colourful streets, steel pan rhythms, taquitos and Havana sliders, savoury churros, Hemingway Daiquiris and whispered rumours of Castor Landel and the Pineapple Revolution… Join us for bubbly as we lift the hood on the celebrations, introduce the liberation’s colourful characters, and turn up the gears on the festive fun!
VIVA LANDEL: A REVOLUTIONARY NEW YEAR
Fuego & Poolside
From 8:00 pm
After months of protests – Bici-taxis blocking traffic; marching Espadrilles throwing pineapples at City Hall; and make-shift radios blasting Roggiefarian revolutionary songs – Castor and Che’s perfectly orchestrated, cacophonic rebellion has reached its defining moment: Marlito and the Buffalo Soldiers have stormed the UPC Headquarters and Maintown is free once again!
Come together to celebrate big energy and beautiful people; the bravery of the past, heroes of the present, and leaders of tomorrow! Lose your inhibitions with the Espadrilles; party hard with the Buffalo Soldiers; hang loose with the Cigarollos; and take a tropical trip to a new world of highs with the Roggiefarians. Say goodbye to repression, let the love flow, and let everything go!
Let your taste buds march freely through Calico Jack’s Caviar Bounty and Raw Bar, our ‘grilicious’ Irie Shack, Caribbean Prawn Stew, roast meats, the cheese market, dessert fanfare and much more. Dance the night away to reggae and steel band beats plus DJ Nick’s island tunes. Then join the revolutionaries in Landel’s jungle hideout for the midnight countdown when black becomes neon, signalling a bright new beginning. Let’s get together and feel all right!
