The Marshmallowist in the Maldives!

The Marshmallowist in the Maldives!

Wednesday 26th of January 2022

Join an unforgettable fluffy experience at InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort as they host the sweet escape with the UK’s first producer of gourmet marshmallows – The Marshmallowist.

Curating a bespoke line-up of pop-up experiences all over the island, guests will be able to experience sweet treats from Oonagh Simms, Founder of The Marshmallowist. From a pop-up hot chocolate bar to a marshmallow master class for adults and children, from a cocktail experience overlooking a breathtaking Maldivian sunset to a bonfire movie night under the stars whilst roasting gourmet S’mores, to ending on a sugar high with a pop-up ice cream parlor by the pool for a splashing good time.

Oognah trained a chocolatier in Paris and now makes marshmallows with French soufflé-like texture and a signature London edge using only premium whole fresh fruits, organic herbs and spices, and boutique alcohol. Combining classic confectionery with unexpected flavors like raspberry and champagne, strawberry and basil, charcoal and jasmine tea, and more, guests can look forward to tropical Maldivian flavors being introduced for the first time.

With a flair for the adventurous and a taste for success, Simms published her first recipe book, The Marshmallowist, with Penguin Random House that follows her journey from Paris to Portobello Road. Brands like Alexander McQueen, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Lancome, Roland Mouret, and more have specially commissioned bespoke flavors and publications like VOGUE, Wallpaper, The Guardian, The Times, Harper’s BAZAAR, The Economist and more have featured the sweet treat. Hailed by The Observer as, ‘the best marshmallows in town’, guests at InterContinental Maldives will be in for a week-long sweet mallow escape.
