Kanuhura Maldives is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to two creatives to become its Digital Islanders and live on the luxury island resort for a month. The mission of the digital islanders is to indulge in every experience the atoll proposes to its guests and document it via clips, photos, and social media posts.
The program includes; stays in the island’s Water and beach villas, snorkeling, and diving in the crystalline waters, escapes to its two deserted islets, dining in the four restaurants, enjoying cocktails in the two bars, and countless other heavenly experiences.
While it sounds like a holiday, it is definitely not a lazy one as there are some serious (but fun) tasks involved from underwater filming during snorkeling & diving trips for video making, photographing decadent breakfast-with-a-view tables before succumbing, creating wanderlust-envy Instagram stories during pre-drinks at sunset, shooting breathtaking aerial photos to clips on the beach.
The creative retreat covers the board and lodging costs on the luxury island resort. The luxury accommodation offered comprises stays at the Water Pool villas, which are located at the edge of the timber walkway, suspended on stilts into the turquoise lagoon on the Eastern side of Kanuhura.
The successful digital islanders will benefit from guidance into the luxury branding world by the marketing team of the international hospitality group Sun Resorts, in addition to international exposure for a year on its social media and digital channels.
How do I become a Digital Islander?
