So that’s it. After 9 months of hard work, our trip to Bali is complete. But Colour of Summer is far from over.
We took a diverse group of amazing, down to earth people from all corners of the world on the most unique trip of their lives. An adventure they will never forget. UK, USA (incl Hawaii), Canada, India and Australia – we had it all (almost)! Taking them to their dream villa with awesome daily activities and night time socials. We let them loose in front of a crew of videographers, drones and photographers and the results were incredible. We can’t wait to share everything with you.
From rice fields to bike trips, pool parties and water parks, to cocktails and spontaneous dancing - we captured it all. Watch this space as we work on our final 2018 campaign video as well as all the other content we’re set to share. In the meantime, you can read all about the week in our blogs!
Say goodbye to the winter blues, we’re not about that here. We recently took three sets of best friends who share the same fun-loving, adventurous attributes as Dock & Bay, to Bali, to become ‘Colour of Summer’ Ambassadors and star in our 2018 campaign. Stay tuned, we'd LOVE you to be part of our next campaign!
Set in the picturesque rice paddies of Canguu, Bali, we hired a luxury villa as the base for the campaign. Our six winning ambassadors were flown in from their home country and spent the week in their own dream villa with access to an outdoor timber dining pavilion, a humongous outdoor pool and plenty of lush gardens to wander. All-inclusive. There was even a private chef. Think picturesque hiking, Instagram-worthy waterfalls and sunrise yoga. We did it all.
Keely and Aiden are from Sydney, Australia. These two adventurers met on a camping trip with a group of Instagram adventurers and have been inseparable since. Their travels have taken them from swimming under waterfalls and exploring Thailand to weekends spend hiking through the Australian bush. They share all of their travelling escapades on their Instagram TheTraxTribe.We were lucky enough to spend a whole week with them and they didn’t let us down. Highlight for us had to be Aiden filming one of our shoots in a bikini (look out for this). It’s a good watch.
Lisa is from Vancouver, Canada and Matt hails from the UK, a long-distance bond to rival that of Andy and Ben. These two kindred travellers met in a hostel in Byron Bay, Australia whilst backpacking and have spent the past six years continuing their adventure to all parts of the globe from Iceland to India and most recently Sri Lanka. Matt has just made the move from the UK to Canada for the next stage of their journey together.
And what a cute couple they were. These 2 jumped into every shoot whilst we were out in Bali and would ‘do anything for the gram’. Always with a spring in their step, they had that real go-getter attitude that we love here at Dock & Bay.
Best friends Preethi and Jennifer are from Mumbai, India. They won us over with their tale of hiking Cinque Terre in Italy together, dragging themselves out of bed at 4am before all the other travellers in order to get the views of the Ligurian Sea all to themselves. Sea views followed by pizza and ice cream is definitely a Dock & Bay approved adventure!
They added a tonne of smiles and laughs to the villa during the week Bali and were amazing to have around! A highlight here has to be learning salsa dancing from Preethi & Jennifer, one of their hidden talents!
