Jumeirah Vittaveli Inaugurates Ice Skating Museum with Olympic Gold Medalist Evgeni Plushenko


Jumeirah Vittaveli has officially opened an ice skating museum at the resort's ice skating rink 'Ice Ice Maybe' in the honor of Olympic gold medalist and three-time world champion, Evgeni Plushenko.

Mr Plushenko also hosted ice skating lessons on March 14 to 17 as a part of the ice rink's first year anniversary. 

Plushenko also inaugurated the ice rink on 20 March 2018 and returned this year for the anniversary celebrations of the ice rink, as well as to launch an Olympic gold medal winner ice skating museum at the ice rink.

Since April 2017 Evgeni is the coach of Adelina Sotnikova, the 2014 Olympic champion. He is also the coach of Vladimir Samoilov, a successful figure ice skater in Junior Championships.

True to Jumeirah Vittaveli's core beliefs to improve sustainability wherever possible, the ice rink was built in partnership with Glice®, a company that manufactures artificial ice plates. Contrary to a conventional ice skating rink, a complex molecular technology makes Glice® synthetic ice rinks function entirely without water and at a zero-energy level.

Jumeirah Vittaveli provides extensive leisure and wellness facilities including a 5 star PADI dive centre, Talise Spa and Talise Fitness. The Talise Spa is surrounded by lush, natural gardens and offers Asian inspired treatments using organic or natural products.

Vittaveli Jumeirah's 5-star villas feature an open-concept layout that lets guests take in stunning sea views and cool breezes. All villas offer private pool and direct access to the beach or lagoon. Free in-room WiFi access is available.

The exclusivity of Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort is a 20-minute luxurious motorized catamaran away from Male International Airport, which will be arranged by the resort.
