Soneva, the world-leading luxury resort operator, launches its
Easter programmes across Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives and
Soneva Kiri in Thailand. Guests can expect Easter-inspired activities, a number of
visiting chefs, professionals and artists as part of the Festival of Colour 2019, as well
as special dining and drinks events, signature experiences and much more from April
14 – 23, 2019.

Soneva Fushi
Soneva’s annual Easter egg hunt is back with wooden eggs hidden all over the resort
for guests to find. These can be exchanged for chocolate eggs at the chocolate room
and the Egg Hunter with the most eggs found will receive a special prize from Lindt.
Continuing the Easter theme is a special Full Moon Dinner and a Pop-Up Easter
After Party, both on the Sandbank. The party includes music by a famous Maldivian
DJ with each couple being given a mini bottle of Champagne. For the whole family
there will be a Games Show night at Down to Earth featuring games such as Twister,
Ring Shooting and more. Guests can traverse the night skies with visiting Lars Lindberg Christensen, an
award-winning astronomer and science communicator who is responsible for
communications from some of the world’s largest and most famous telescopes,
including the Hubble Space Telescope (for ESA), the Extremely Large Telescope,
the Very Large Telescope, ALMA and La Silla. Lars received the Tycho Brahe Medal
in 2005 for his achievements in science communication. Danish Chef Kamilla Seidler,
winner of Latin America’s Best Female Chef award in 2016, and Finnish Chef Filip
Langhoff who has one Michelin star will both be hosting dinners over Easter.

Soneva Jani
The Easter Egg Hunt returns to Soneva Jani with wooden Easter eggs hidden around
the resort which can be exchanged for chocolate prizes. For cocktail enthusiasts the
Cocktail Journey at South Beach will be followed by an Easter inspired dining Pop-
Up in the Lagoon. Easter egg painting and an Easter-themed quiz for the whole
family round off the special activities planned for younger guests.
Soneva Jani’s Grand Master Chef Kiichi Okabe, formerly from a two-Michelin starred
restaurant in Japan, is putting on special dinners with wine pairings at So
Imaginative. His deftly crafted sushi is known as some of the best outside of Japan.
Other dining and drinks experiences include lunch at the Crab Shack, a Maldivian
barbecue dinner at Zuhair’s Beach and a Sunset Celebration with Konrad, Soneva
Jani’s new Master Sommelier.

Soneva Kiri
At Soneva Kiri there will be an Easter Bunny basket making class for the children,
and these baskets can then be used during the Easter eggs hunt, where wooden
eggs will be hidden in guest villas, the Eco Den, and around the Living Room and at
North Beach for the whole family to find and exchange for chocolate prizes. There
will also be milkshake making, Easter pop-up card and egg painting classes, as well
as experiments using eggs for the children. For older guests an Easter Cocktail
gathering will be happening at The View before the Easter Parade buffet dinner at the Dining Room.
Continuing with the chocolate theme the resort’s chocolatier will be hosting The Art of
Chocolate at the Chef’s Table to teach guests how to make their own Easter eggs. At
Ever So Screwed Up (wine cellar) there will be a Chocolate and Wine Tasting event
that takes guests through old world wines from France, Italy and Spain, all paired
with Soneva Kiri’s homemade dark chocolate. A special Soneva Chocolate High Tea
is also available at Ever So Spirited with chocolate creations prepared by the awardwinning Chef Su.
