After two summers of travel restrictions and abandoned holiday plans, Malibu Rum have decided to bring the sunshine vibes to Britain instead, with a fun-filled pop-up holiday resort in London this August Bank Holiday Weekend. 

For two days only from Saturday 28-Sunday 29 August, the Malibu Vacation Staycation will offer groups of up to five the chance to enjoy all the benefits of a summer holiday - without all the trouble of quarantine.

The site at Ely’s Yard, Truman’s Brewery on Brick Lane in London's Shoreditch is set to be tranformed into the ultimate summer hotspot, complete with beachside heated pool, piña coladas, tanning, temporary tattoo and photo booths, and all the good vibes you need.

Plus, Instagram phenomenons Hunsnet will be providing the tunes from the DJ booth during the day.

Also on hand will be David Potts, the self-confessed 'OG Hun' from ITV's Ibiza Weekender, who'll be keeping the energy high as the temporary London resort's very own holiday rep. 

Pool slots can be reserved for groups of up to five and strictly limited - you can get yours here.

In a statement, Potts says: “Being able to travel and go on holiday is so important to having fun, escaping your boring day job, and having a laugh with your mates. I feel right bad for everyone who’s had to miss out on the last two summers of holiday vibes - but this year I’m NOT letting it happen again.

“Since we’re all in some dire need of major vacay catchup, I’m so buzzing to be teaming up with Malibu to host the Malibu Vacation Staycation – the party resort with NO red or amber lists, NO quarantines and ONLY good vibes, funshine, and stunning cocktails allowed.

“Get your swimsuits on, huns, I’ll see you there!”

Gareth Howells, Founder and Director of Hunsnet, said: “If you follow Hunsnet you’ll know that we love a holibob! But due to the Panny D, we’ve not been able to get away this past cutla summers.

"Thankfully Malibu has come to the rescue and saved the summer with their Vacation Staycation! We at Hunsnet are absolutely buzzing to be part of this campaign and cannot wait for the summer bank holibob. Sun’s out! Hun’s out!”

Malibu Vacation Staycation will be at  Ely’s Yard, Truman’s Brewery on Brick Lane in London's Shoreditch from Saturday 28-Sunday 29 August. Book your free 90-minute slot here.
