SKY Bar launch

Launching Maldives’ 1st & only over-water observatory to an Australian audience


An extensive PR campaign delivered to officially launch Anantara Kihavah’s SKY Bar, an over-water observatory complete with a resident astronomer and panoramic bar.

Wasamedia utilised a strategic PR campaign to launch this unique concept to the Australian market. The six-month campaign included the organisation of a bespoke travel media event from planning to execution. Post event, Wasamedia organised and hosted media famils to the Maldivian property, as well as, all media liaison and distribution of press materials to our extensive database of travel and luxury contacts.
