Guests celebrating the New Year at One&Only Reethi Rah were treated to a surprise DJ performance from Idris Elba to launch 2020 in unforgettable One&Only style.

This exclusive set was one of a just handful of performances from the award-winning actor and DJ who performed a headline DJ set at Coachella in 2019.

Idris took to the stage just after midnight, following the resort’s New Year’s Eve countdown and electrifying drone show, where he entertained One&Only Reethi Rah’s guests with his explosive and energetic set, and partygoers danced the night away until the early hours of the morning.

Idris spent the days prior to the performance relaxing at One&Only Reethi Rah with his wife Sabrina Elba where the couple stayed in a private Water Villa with infinity pool, surrounded by the turquoise hues of the Indian Ocean.

Whilst exploring the resort’s stunning surroundings by bicycle, they also took pleasure in having down-time on one of the many pristine white sandy beaches. They relaxed at the One&Only Spa and relished in having romantic private dining experiences that included Tapasake restaurant, where they enjoyed a personal Teppanyaki experience with the resort’s chefs.
