Le Méridien Maldives resort celebrates return of signature Au Soleil programme
Maldives for Food Lovers
24 May, 2023
Le Meridién Maldives is inviting travellers to embrace a glamorous summer mindset through its returning Au Soleil programme and newly launched rosé sorbet.
Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa has teamed up with social media’s favourite chef and tastemaker – Meredith Hayden – to bring to life a Rosé infused sorbet as a nod to the brand’s quintessential invitation for travellers to chase the endless summer and create lasting memories complete with lazy, rosé-filled afternoons.
Inspired by the preciousness of caviar ice baths and the cocktail sidecar, this perfect scoop-and-sip combo is served in a custom-designed Sorbet Sidecar. The glass cone, reflective of a classic ice cream cone, holds the sorbet scoop and sits atop a stemless wine glass filled with rosé. The glassware duo is presented on a sunshine-coloured tray, with an Au Soleil wooden cradle designed to hold the cone while sipping the rosé.
Beginning this July, Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa will invite travellers to soak in the summer season, both on- and off-property:
Sip, Savour and Stay
From sun-kissed day with a glass of rosé, global jet sets visiting Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa will be able to capture the spirit of Au Soleil in a variety of ways:
- Beginning July 10 through October 31, will offer a special Au Soleil stay package that includes daily breakfast and a complimentary Le Scoop by Le Méridien gelato or sorbet.
- Embodying the idea that the sun never sets on the jet set, celebratory moments include Au Soleil Sunset Sessions and special Paella & Sangria dinners in Riviera Tapas & Bar and Au Soleil sunset picnics on the beach or on the resort’s private island – Bodu Finolhu.
- A modern twist to classic games traditionally enjoyed outdoors during warm weather days, such as the iconic seaside pastime of backgammon, as well as tic-tac-toe, poolside chess and chic modernist-style Jenga sets. Guests at Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa can take advantage of the giant chess board in The Hub.
- Le Scoop by Le Méridien, featuring various flavours of gelato and sorbet reminiscent of a glamorous, sunny summer spent on the French Riviera. Flavours include locally grown Papaya & Lime Sorbet. Ice-creams on offer include classic Mint & Choco Chip and Basil ice-cream. All are made from using the freshest ingredients harvested in Le Meridien Maldives’ own greenhouse.
- A distinctive on-property design aesthetic, evoking the spirit of Au Soleil and the playful glamour of endless European summers for travellers all year round.
- A How to Summer Guide that captures the unspoken rules of a perfect day Au Soleil, whether on the beach or in the town, including Sun Safety tips from the brand’s amenity partner MALIN+GOETZ.
