Baa Atoll Summer Festival returns for 2019 with island-hopping culinary cornucopia

Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Baa Atoll resorts are once again teaming up to host the second edition of the ‘Baa Atoll Summer Festival’. From July 8 to 21, 12 resorts will come together for an island-hopping extravaganza in which guests can embark on a unique dine-around voyage encompassing Amilla Fushi, Anantara Kihavah, Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, Dreamland, Dusit Thani, Finolhu, Four Seasons Landaa, Reethi Beach, Royal Island, Soneva Fushi, The Westin Maldives and Vakkaru Maldives.

Over a series of dedicated nights, the Summer Festival will showcase the best each resort has to offer in the culinary scene, reaffirming Baa Atoll’s reputation as a must-visit summer destination of distinction. Officially commencing on July 7, with a series of exclusive Sunset Cocktail events for guests, the Baa Atoll Summer Festival sees each participating resort welcoming their neighbours’ guests for a special set menu dinner in their featured dining restaurant on designated nights over two consecutive weeks.

Each resort will also showcase its own dining scene via a 3-course set menu. Complimentary inter-island transportation will be organised by the participating resorts on the featured night. Special arrangements can also be made on request for those who wish to repeat their experience in a specific resort.

Each resort will also offer an action-packed calendar of activities to keep the entire family entertained throughout the festival fortnight, from beach activities, conservation events, water experiences and more. This year will also see the introduction of a round-robin inter-resort Beach Volleyball Tournament between staff and guests, as well as a Full Moon Island Clean-up Day.

Finally, on July 22, the festival closing ceremony will show the unity of the 12 participating resorts whereby everyone comes together for a day of fun in the sun on a sandbank at the heart of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, with a beach party for the guests, round-robin volleyball final match and the show-stopping Catamaran Regatta competition.
