Guests staying at Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives over the Platinum Jubilee Weekend on 2 – 5 June 2022 can celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s historic reign by sipping on two new royal cocktails, tailored to the palette and likes of Her Majesty. Best enjoyed on the resort’s impressive sandbank or poolside in a private overwater villa, these delicious cocktails can be ordered at the Beach Bar.

The “Zaza” Dubonnet

A classic cocktail of the 1930’s, the Dubonnet cocktail is said to be Her Majesty’s favorite pre-dinner tipple and was also a favourite of the late Queen Mother. The glamorous French cocktail is traditionally served straight up and without garnish, but the royals are said to enjoy the drink best when it’s served over ice and with a twist of lemon.

Ingredients: Dubonnet, dry London gin, splash of lemon bitters.

Method: Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir until chilled, pour and garnish with a lemon swath.

Thyme-less & Down to Earth

Combining Her Majesty’s love of whiskey, chocolate and Prince Phillip’s mushrooms a la crème, this unique cocktail celebrates earthy flavours from both land and sea.

Ingredients: mushroom-infused blended Scotch, thyme, orange and dark chocolate bitters, seaweed mist and dark cacao.

Method: In a copper mug, combine thyme leaf, bitters and seaweed saline solutions and lightly muddle. Add crushed iced, pour over the whisky and gently mix. Top up with crushed ice and serve with a cocoa powdered orange peel.

Add Royal Treatment

For additional royal indulgence, guests staying in the resort’s two-bedroom villas will benefit from the Roohu, a personalised guest service ensuring all needs are taken care of by a dedicated host, including unpacking, dining reservations, spa bookings and a tailormade itinerary for the duration of the stay.

Seaside Finolhu Resort Maldives sand bank

Best Experience:    Couples, Family, Beaches, Activities, Nightlife

Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, Finolhu came about as a reaction to the more familiar Maldives island. One of the newest resorts in the Maldives, Finolhu was born out of a desire to bring a fresh wave to the uninhabited island experience. Forget the images of the quiet Maldives paradise: here, fiery dancers, acrobats, world-famous DJs and top-class barmen keep the guests on tiptoe (starting from their bed). The retro atmosphere is the resort's main inspiring force that puts a fun stay at the heart of everything it offers. This cool island playground shakes things up with a fun and fresh spin on Maldivian luxury. The island boasts the longest (1.8 km) sandbank of all the famous Maldivian resort islands - expect to spend a lot of time explorering it. A long beach should not disappoint you either; beach club with retro cinema and old-school arcade; spa with fitness centre and beach gym; tennis courts; watersports; four restaurants; old-school tuck shop. In rooms: TV, iPod dock, DVD player, desk, air-conditioning, minibar, black-out curtain, Neal's Yard Remedies bath products. Read Full Review...
