OUR NEW FEATHERED FRIENDS
OUR NEW FEATHERED FRIENDS
Some very special guests have ‘winged it’ to Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences just in time for Easter.
That’s right, 59 ‘hot chicks’ have arrived on our island. They are taking up residence at our island’s newest abode, ‘Cluckingham Palace’. Cluckingham Palace was built by our team during lockdown.
It may be nothing new to see stylish ladies arriving at Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences, but there’s certainly something unique about our newest arrivals. Measuring about 27 inches tall and decked head to tail in glossy feathers, they are a truly egg-citing addition to the island. And they have been joined by one lucky fellow named ‘Cluck Norris’.
We’re talking of course about the 59 hens and one rooster that have arrived at Amilla Maldives just in time for Easter. While we temporarily closed to guests last month due to the coronavirus pandemic, many of the Amilla Islanders including General Manager, Jason Kruse, and Sustainability Manager, Victoria Kruse, stayed on the island. During this period, they worked on a host of new projects, including Cluckingham Palace, new organic gardens and a banana plantation.
Our Islanders, who have safely quarantined from the outside world, celebrated the arrival of their new feathered friends with bubbles and beer.
Our new chicken residence is fit for royalty. It’s tucked away on a secluded part of the island, surrounded by lush tropical foliage which helps to keep the area shaded and cool.
The hens and rooster are already settling in well. When guests return to the island after its reopening on July 1st, they will be able to enjoy the freshest of eggs at all our restaurants. You can even stroll over to Cluckingham Palace to say hello to the girls and choose your own eggs for our Chef to cook for your breakfast.
Homemade and Homegrown@Amilla
Cluckingham Palace is part of Amilla Maldives’ Homemade@Amilla and Homegrown@Amilla concepts, which involve growing and making as much fresh food as possible right there on the island. It goes towards our goal of making Amilla Maldives more sustainable.
The fresh eggs are also a tasty addition to Amilla’s paleo, keto and low lectin ‘Wellness Your Way’ dishes. We’ve added a host of speciality dishes to our main menus so we can cater to the dietary demands of today’s five-star resort guests. Amilla is the first resort in the Maldives to pioneer such a comprehensive array of ‘eating lifestyle’ dishes and adaptable menus.
The Islanders will now continue to work on a host of other new surprises as part of the preparations for our grand re-opening in July.
