The Maldives, which is home to two Per Aquum Hotels and Resorts –Niyama and Huvafen Fushi – are now welcoming a new experience, aptly titled Pulse. The Per Aquum initiative will see music and arts blended together by one of Russia's Mariinsky Ballet Company, when they take to the stage to perform Swan Lake, Scheherazade, Giselle, Carmen and Don Quixote. Led by Xander Parish – the first British dancer to be accepted into the Mariinsky company – the ballet will be performed on a stage, which looks out onto the tropical island.

Per Aquum brings ballet to the Maldives

While you're in the Maldives, be sure to experience Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi's other features including the world's only underwater spa. Then, Per Aquum Niyama, which is a 45-minute seaplane ride south of Male, also has a luxury restaurant and lounge, underwater. 

The exclusive Pulse performance will take place at Per Aquum Niyama on August 21 and at Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi on August 23, 2016. For more information and reservations, visit Peraquum.com.
