Festive Season at Amanpulo

2021/22 Festive Season at Amanpulo

Celebrate the last days of 2021 and welcome the New Year on your own private island, surrounded by nothing but the turquoise waters. Pasko sa Pilipinas – or Christmas in the Philippines – is this island nation’s favourite holiday, and this year Amanpulo combines Filipino festive traditions with exclusive dining experiences inspired by Aman destinations from around the world. With hope for a brighter, healthier future and time with loved ones never more poignantly front of mind, Amanpulo’s calendar of dining, cultural and adventure experiences promises an utterly memorable and wholly rejuvenating festive season with friends and family alike.

Highlights

All is calm, all is bright

24 & 25 December

As the sun rises on Christmas Eve, celebrate simbang gabi (dawn mass) on the beach before joining a guided trail run or snorkelling expedition to work up an appetite for the feasts ahead. Afternoon tea with merienda (local snacks) and harmonious carols will segue into a sunset Beer Symposium at the Beachclub, followed by a Noche Buena Christmas banquet served family-style beneath the stars. Nostalgic dishes such as roast stuffed turkey and honey-glazed ham will be paired with new flavours, from mud crab millefeuille to a seafood paella.

Late the next morning, Santa will make his annual dramatic entrance in the Picnic Grove, after which a spectacular market-style seafood feast inspired by Amankila will transport guests to the laidback shores of Bali.

New beginnings

31 December & 1 January

As younger children revel in their own festive fiesta celebrating the last night of 2021, Amanpulo’s adult guests will be spoilt for choice. Choose to celebrate as a family with the convivial, starlit Unity Dinner at the Beachclub or savour the seven-course New Dawn gala dinner at the Clubhouse with a menu and live entertainment inspired by the forthcoming opening of Aman New York. All guests are welcome to join the magnificent poolside after-dinner show with live music, dancing and fireworks as the stroke of midnight signals the dawn of the New Year. Guests will be taken on a culinary journey to Japan on the 1st with brunch at the Lagoon Club inspired by Aman Kyoto’s secret garden. Later, enjoy sundowners before taking a guided stargazing tour of the New Year’s night sky.

A global culinary adventure

22 December – 1 January

Extraordinary dining experiences inspired by global Aman destinations will not be limited to Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. A set lunch at the Clubhouse on the 22nd will whisk you to Aman Summer Palace in Beijing with a menu featuring the eight great cuisines of China – from Anhui to Zhejiang. The very next evening beneath the bougainvillea-draped Clubhouse terrace, experience a contemporary seven-course dinner inspired by Amangiri’s diverse landscapes in the American Southwest. Enjoy a Cantonese street food lunch in the Picnic Grove on the 27th, a sumptuous poolside Thai feast channeling Amanpuri on the 28th, and a journey to Tokyo at an izakaya dinner featuring handmade ramen and gyoza on the 29th.
