If you are thinking of packing your winter jacket to use on the ice rink hold it for a while. The ice rink at Jumeirah Vittali Maldives is made with Glice, a novel material from Switzerland which eliminates the need of keeping the rink cold. Thanks to the environment friendly technology. You can auction the winter jacket on Ebay or just keep it at home, Maldives is still sunny.

Jumeirah Vittaveli is an ultra-luxury resort that is very close to Velana International Airport. Apart from hosting luxury thrillers the resort is also a popular stop-over destination for private yachts that cruise through the Maldives. Earlier this year the world famous Motor Yacht A was spotted off Jumeirah Vittaveli with rear shuttle boat compartment wide open, suggesting the guests went off somewhere and Vittaveli resort was the closest island.
