LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas is set to launch a live festival spanning 8 weeks, that will be exclusively broadcast on the brand's Instagram page.

Commencing on May 4, 2020 the live sessions will be 30-minutes long, featuring information shared by eight internationally acclaimed hosts.

According to Mona Sedghi, Marketing & PR Manager at LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas, "Staying safe at home during these times is a perfect time to rest, learn something new and to discover new, hidden talents".

"We welcome you all to take part of this new Monday tradition and count down the days until we re-open our doors".

The hosts will provide expertise across a selection of subject from travel content creation, wedding planning, freediving, music, cooking as well as more personal growth-focused areas such as working out, finding your intention and many others.

“We are delighted to initiate an online festival and to collaborate with some of the best experts in the game", says Mona Sedghi, Marketing & PR Manager at LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas. PHOTO: LUX* RESORTS & HOTELS

In addition, once the final episode airs on the platform, the resort plans to host a quiz based on the various topics discussed and highlighted throughout all of the sessions.

When the resort is back in business, one lucky winner will be invited to come and collect the grand prize; a seven-night stay at the luxurious property.

The first session took place on Thursday, with hosts former Facebook executive and founder of MyIntent Chris Pan (@chispan), US-based international travel content creators Jeremy Austin and Angie Villa (@jeremyaustiin, @missangievill), Founder of Russian Wedding Academy and Editor-in-chief of Just Married magazine Natalia Kulikova (@nata_kulikova) and finally, record-breaking 'constant weight, no fins' deep freediver Beth Neale (@onebreathbeth)

Not only will the channel be going live, LUX* South Ari Atoll's Instagram handle (@luxsouthari) will also publish the videos on their IGTV as well, to be enjoyed at a later time.

However, those wishing to partake in the competition would be well advised to catch up on all pending sessions prior to June 22, when the last episode airs.
