W Maldives and Perrier® Unveils Exclusive Collaboration with Asia’s 50 Best Bars, Bar Cham

W Maldives and Perrier® has announced an exclusive collaboration with Asia’s 50 Best Bars, Bar Cham for an unforgettable mixology experience from 7-10 March 2024.

Located on the pristine Fesdu Island, W Maldives is surrounded by an amazing house reef, turquoise waters and white sands – perfect for relaxing, playing and recharging from the city life.
Born in France, the effervescent spirit of Perrier is now recognized in more than 140 countries. First, our carbonated mineral water was adopted as the champagne of table waters in Great Britain. Soon after, it went on to captivate hearts far and wide, before finding fame at home in France.

With its invigorating bubbles, Perrier has tastefully quenched thirst for almost 160 years. The unique blend of distinctive bubbles and balanced mineral content is a great alternative to carbonated soft drinks, with no sugar and zero calories.


Perrier packs plenty of daring on its own, but the crisp carbonation makes it the perfect partner for mixing your own cocktails or mocktails. Elegant and versatile, it’s perfect at-home or on-the-go – a refreshing choice for every day.

Tucked away in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Seoul, Bar Cham is set in a hanok, or a traditional Korean house, which hints at what is to come. Helmed by Lim Byung-jin, Bar Cham offers cocktails based on Korean spirits, melding local flavours with modern techniques. ‘Cham’ means ‘oak’ in Korean, which is heavily featured in the décor of this intimate venue. Hosting Bar Cham at W Maldives, along with Perrier®, represents a harmonious blend of innovative mixology and breathtaking surroundings. This collaboration creates an exclusive and luxurious setting for guests to savour the finesse of Korea’s cocktail craftsmanship in a tropical paradise that offers an unparalleled experience that embodies refined indulgence that transcends the ordinary.

On March 8, a unique cocktail master class experience awaits at W Maldives’ private island, Gaathafushi. The class will be led by Bar Cham’s Bar Manager and Senior Bartender, Yeonghwi Yun and Myeongmin Kim, respectively, and they will reveal the secrets behind their award-winning concoctions against a canvas of the tropical paradise. This exclusive experience is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a sneak peek into the artisanship of Bar Cham’s creations. The master class concludes with an intimate sunset session on the island, where the natural beauty beckons you to simply enjoy the moment. The curtain falls on March 9, 2024, when Bar Cham is set to stage a coup at the resort’s overwater bar, SIP. The bar takeover will unleash a spectacle of mixology mastery featuring a specially curated menu just for the evening. Expect to sip, savour, and be surprised as Myeongmin Kim commandeers the scene with a flair found nowhere else. The evening will also be amplified by the groovy tunes churned by W Maldives’ music curator, Richard Ulh.
