To celebrate the 75th anniversary of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, the InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort has unveiled a series of bespoke guest experiences throughout 2021 and 2022. On December 16 – 18, 2021, the resort will welcome renowned French DJ and Producer, Michael Canitrot to light up the night as he plays a series of live sets at some of the most breathtaking venues at the resort.

From Paris to LA, Amsterdam to Brazil and Tokyo, Michael Canitrot has been DJ’ing in some of the biggest clubs in the world, hosted high-fashion events for Dior, Chanel and Cartier and took over the world’s most famous red carpet – the Festival de Cannes – playing live to a global audience for over 10 years. This year, Canitrot together with UNESCO, the French government, the national media and several major partners, have been turning heritage venues in France into moving art pieces. Aptly named the ‘Monumental Tour’, French President Emmanuel Macron credited Canitrot for his innovative and visionary mind of using historical French landmarks to showcase his art through sound, light and projection mapping technology, for a good cause – funds raised are being channeled to the ongoing maintenance of these landmarks. Legendary venues being lighted up throughout 2021, include The Whale Lighthouse, the world-renowned Mont Saint-Michel, the Automobile International Museum – the largest automobile museum in the world and home to 450 vintage cars including the rarest and most valuable and Pierrefonds Castle.

December 18, 2021: The Collective with Michael Canitrot

On the third day Canitrot will bring The Collective to life, at a lazy afternoon poolside session. The Collective is a bustling hub for guests to wander through The Deli, which serves freshly squeezed juices, pastries and healthy wraps or visit the wood-fired oven at the Pizzeria or savour an array of homemade gelato at the Gelato Bar.

Michael Canitrot will curate an exclusive Spotify Playlist accessible to guests staying at the resort. From a ‘Sunrise Walk on the Beach’ playlist to an ‘Afternoon Splash Chillout’ playlist and an ‘Evening Sundown Glow’ playlist, your ears will be buzzing while your body is humming at the InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort.

In early March 2022, The Marshmallowist – the UK’s first artisanal producer of gourmet marshmallows using premium ingredients of whole fresh fruits, organic herbs & spices and boutique alcohol will arrive in the Maldives. Hailed by The Observer as, ‘the best marshmallows in town’ and as quoted in The Economist as, ‘they make Mr Wonka’s floral ambitions look feeble,’ guests at the resort will be in for a week-long sweet treat.
