Toast to more than 500 years of the pineapple as the emblem of hospitality with Preferred Hotels & Resorts  

WHAT: In honour of International Pineapple Day on 1st June, Coco Bodu Hithi will be joining other independent member hotels of Preferred Hotels & Resorts from around the world for a week-long celebration of the pineapple as the emblem of hospitality. From Saturday, 1st June to Sunday, 9th June, hotel guests will be welcomed to enjoy the Beach Breeze, an original, limited-time only pineapple cocktail inspired by the legacy of the pineapple at Latitude. $16

WHY: Over 500 years ago, when sailors searched for places to rest in port towns following their journeys at sea, they were able to identify friendly local residents that would welcome them in by the pineapples hung at the entrances of their homes. Since then, the pineapple has been used to express that ‘you are welcome here’ – a fitting way to describe the approachable yet luxury experience offered to guests at Coco Bodu Hithi and at 750 other one-of-a-kind, authentic independent properties in the Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio. 

In addition to the delicious pineapple cocktails served throughout the week, curious travellers and independent hotel enthusiasts can follow celebratory activities taking place globally on Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ International Pineapple Week site and social media channels. Follow Coco Bodu Hithi and Preferred Hotels & Resorts @PreferredHotels along with the hashtag #PreferredPineappleWeek on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to discover exciting artist collaborations, fun hotel guest posts, and to unlock booking bonuses with Pineapple Points giveaways from top regional influencers.  

WHEN: Saturday, June 1 to Sunday, June 9, 8am - 1am at Latitude @ Coco Bodu Hithi
