Throughout the week, guests are invited to dive in to experience her visionary taste sensations at a Cocoa Pod-To-Bar Masterclass at The Tasting Room, for adults and at Ritz Kids for children, reserve a front row seat in the culinary theatre for a Four-Hands Chocolate-infusion Degustation Dinner with Executive Chef Glen Cooper and embark on a sustainable island trail of Cocoa Tree-Planting with the resort’s Naturalists.

Throughout the year, guests will also receive the most indulgent turndown amenity of artisanal chocolate bon bons handcrafted and hand-painted using natural colours and encased in a bespoke box made exclusively for The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands.
