Today is International Failure Day! A day to celebrate turning adversity to advantage. There might not seem to be anything flawed about the Maldives paradise, but it just so happens that this subject is my “other” pastime that I research and write extensively about.
Today’s embracing failure award goes to Sun Siyam Irufushi for their inspired kids play area in the main dining restaurant. Under 6’s are welcome to join this colourful and well equipped area right near a group of the tables. That way, Mom and Dad can enjoy their dinner and linger over an extra serving from the buffet while the little ones can frolic in sight. Irufushi also features delightful (and sturdy) kids’ placeware to put a smile on their faces when they do eat (see below).
For those worried about the sounds of happy children disturbing their own meal, Irufushi also provides a few separate dining areas so peace-and-quiet seeking adults can eat there.
I always feel bad for kids in fancy restaurants or holiday spots being under pressure to be extra well-behaved especially at the table. Doesn’t sound like much of a holiday for them to me. I love that Irufushi has decided embrace the failure to bottle up kids natural energy and exuberance and catered for it instead.
