About JLF Soneva Fushi

For the first time ever, Soneva is partnering 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, with themes as varied as travel, fiction, food, art, wellness, climate change, and the environment. The Festival will bring a line-up of world-renowned authors, fascinating workshops, music, art, and culture.

A truly bespoke experience, JLF Soneva Fushi will be a study in Slow Life, with 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.
