Finolhu is gearing up for the launch of ‘1OAK Island’ – its #1OAKMaldives partnership with 1OAK at a spectacular ‘Summer Lovin’ beach extravaganza. The transformation of Finolhu into 1OAK Island will coincide with the first anniversary and launch of 1OAK Maldives. The three-day celebrations will see the ultimate tropical oasis of world-class entertainment featuring daily events, A-list performances, oceanside dinners and unique activations.

The funky beach festival entertainment, and gourmet food and drinks – themed ‘Summer Lovin’ – will kick off on July 28. On day one, guests will enjoy a day filled with pool parties, treasure hunts and a Bruce Lee inspired dinner. Guests will gather under the stars for an 80’s glam party complete with the greatest disco hits to transport you back in time, says The Small Maldives Island Co. (TSMIC) – the operator of Finolhu – in a statement.

Day two will continue with some fun in the sun at the hotspot of the island, the Fish & Crab Shack. Guests will be able to bring out their inner kid with beach volleyball, games and water rides, or just chill out and enjoy light bites and curated cocktails. The Baa Baa Beach Diner will be the evening hotspot for food trucks serving easy grazing food, before a one-of-a-kind night dancing to the smooth sounds of Grammy award-winning artist, Robin Thicke, says the statement.

As the weekend wraps up on July 30, the final day will be filled with tarot card readings and poolside spa treatments while guests unwind to the classic sounds of legendary 60’s and 70’s female artists like xxx and more, adds TSMIC.

“We are thrilled to help create a one of a kind summer. It has been an incredible first year with 1OAK Maldives and we are looking forward to many more years of successful events” says Richie Akiva, Founder of Butter Group.

Since the opening of its flagship location in New York City, 1OAK has expanded exponentially with locations in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Tokyo set to open this summer and pop-ups at Coachella, Super Bowl, Abu Dhabi, Monaco, Paris, Cannes, Ibiza, and Art Basel. 1OAK has been favourited by Hollywood’s biggest celebrities, VIPs and socialites, including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Rihanna, Kate Hudson and Halle Berry.

Finolhu’s stylish 125 villas come on the ocean, the lagoon or by the beach, with or without a pool in either one or two bedroom options – an eclectic retreat with a buzzy bon-vivant vibe, bringing toes-in- the-sand relaxation to fun-loving beach-erati.

Coinciding with the Summer Lovin’ extravaganza, Finolhu launched a special #SummerLovinFinolhu package that includes breakfast or half board and the beverage package to choose from along with a 50% discount on the best available rate.
