After her space flight to the International Space Station (ISS), Yulia Peresild touched down at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa in the Maldives for a much-needed break from her busy schedule.

The Russian actress and philanthropist, who is a popular name in TV, movies, and theatre, is the very first actor in the world to become a cosmonaut after her flight to the ISS in early October this year. Her extremely successful career has made her one of the most in-demand actresses in Russia. She is best known for her roles in drama films such as “The Edge”, “The Bride”, and “Captive”. Her breakout role which was her rise to fame is her supporting role in the award-winning movie “In The Fog”.

She has just wrapped up filming for the movie “The Challenge“, to be released in 2022. The Challenge is the first feature film shot in space. The crew returned to Earth on the 17th of October, having spent nearly 12 days in space.

Following the successful shooting, Yulia Peresild is spending a well-deserved break with her family at the luxuriously spacious and private Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa. This is notably the actress’s very first time in the Maldives, and she could not be more excited. Her first Instagram post from the isles credits her dear friend Andrey Burkovskiy with planning the trip. She is captured gleefully walking along the shoreline just as the sun is beginning to set. In addition to that, she also shared on her social media a very interesting aerial photo of the resort island taken by her astronaut friend Pyotr Dubrov all the way out there in space.

Her fans showed their support on her social media and whist enjoying seeing snaps and glimpses into her Maldivian vacay, they urged her to take care of herself so that she can get a good rest before coming back to be her best. A sentiment echoed by many fans was that they are looking forwards to what new roles might be in store for future projects that the actress might embark on after her break.

The island’s private setting and its curated experiences made possible by impeccable Butler service make it the ideal escape for celebrities. Those who have vacationed at the resort include Sharman Joshi, Agata Muciniece, and Dieter Bohlen. Furthermore, the abundance of marine life around Hideaway is second to none. This makes the resort a prime location for snorkelling and diving.

Séan Garnier Takes Kandima Maldives by Storm with Freestyle Football

Travellers who vacationed at Kandima Maldives recently got the performance of a lifetime!

Redbull-sponsored freestyle football legend Séan Garnier recently took over Kandima Maldives, surprising football fans on vacation. During a fun-filled beach event, vacationers got to play short one-on-one games with Garnier. Additionally, Garnier also pulled out some major tricks, bringing contagious energy to Kandima Maldives.

Kandima Maldives appears to be a favourite spot for Séan Garnier and his family, as this is not the first time he has stayed at this beautiful resort destination. Promoting his one-on-one game and tricks, Garnier stated that Kandima Maldive is the most beautiful island in Maldives. Just a few years back, in 2019, Garnier brought his family on a little getaway to Kandima Maldives. Sharing pictures on Instagram, Garnier thanked the resort for an awesome week of vacation.

Even during his 2019 trip, Garnier took some time to play one-on-one matches with the resort staff in addition to partaking in the ice-bucket challenge. The ice-bucket challenge was popularised during this time, to raise awareness around amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

In addition to his stay in Kandima Maldives, Séan Garnier has also performed in the Maldives back in 2011. As the first world champion of Redbull Street Style Soccer, Garnier performed in various parts of the Maldives. This included the Greater Male’ Area, Alif Alif Atoll Rasdhoo and the Dhiraagu Road Show. During this visit, Garnier was joined by Andreas Cetkovic, Champion of France 2010.

The French-born, freestyle soccer expert embraced the urban art of freestyle football after following his ambition to become a professional footballer. Quickly finding his groove, Garnier was crowned the World champion at the first Redbull Street Style World Finals in Brazil in 2008. Since then, Garnier has been a fan-favourite when it comes to freestyle tricks.
