For the first time ever, Soneva has partnered with Teamwork Arts, producer of the iconic Jaipur Literature Festival, to bring JLF to Soneva Fushi.

Spread over 10 days and two weekends, events will be held at stunning locations across the island, celebrating the theme of ‘Slow Life’, including topics as varied as travel, fiction, food, art, wellness, climate change and the environment. The Festival will welcome a line-up of world-renowned authors, fascinating workshops, music, art and culture.

A truly bespoke experience, JLF Soneva Fushi will feature morning yoga sessions, stimulating workshops, delectable international cuisine and jaw-dropping sunsets against a languorous blue sea. JLF Soneva Fushi is an opportunity to reconnect with the joys of live performances of art, music and literature on the idyllic island of Kunfunadhoo in the beautiful Baa Atoll.
