As one of just a few locally-owned and managed Maldives resorts, Amilla Maldives Resort and Residencies represents the rich culture of the nation in an effort to share the country’s truly unique heritage with the world.
The resort’s commitment to this goal is highlighted in its efforts to support and promote local artisans through its Visiting Artists program. The initiative sees Amilla hosting inspirational painters, craftspeople, and other creative talents from neighboring islands, who then showcase their skills to guests.
Excitement is at an all-time high as Dr. Naila Ibrahim Didi is set to grace the Visiting Artists program to exhibit her paintings and other artwork over a three-day period from 04th - 08th November.
Born in the Maldives and educated in Sri Lanka, the underwater world of the Maldives has always fascinated Dr. Naila and she tries to capture its vibrant beauty in her artwork. She creates the aquatic scenes by painting them in reverse on Perspex with acrylic paints, giving them the glossy and transparent quality of the crystal-clear Indian Ocean.
Dr. Naila will exhibit and sell her artwork at the ‘Cellar Door’, located at Amilla’s Emperor Beach Club. Her visit coincides with Amilla’s Autumn Program, packed with activities and entertainment for guests of all ages and running from October 16th to November 30th.
No other Artist is a better fit as Dr. Naila serves as the cherry on top following Amilla’s highly successful Maldives Cultural Week, the first-ever event of its kind to be held at a Maldives resort.
