Bumble to Host Love Island Inspired Singles Retreat


Bumble has announced it will be hosting its own version of Love Island.

The dating app will be sending 24 singles to a luxury property in Suffolk for a weekend of activities and an opportunity to meet their future partner. All of the games and icebreakers will be focused on the women making the first move.

Moat Cottage has six en-suite bedrooms, an open plan living room and a floating decking area with a hot tub overlooking a lake.

The male singles will not be allowed to stay the night, but instead will be transported to a nearby house after dinner. This is a move to help the women taking part feel safe.

Louise Troen, Bumble’s VP International Marketing & Communications, said to Brinkwire: “We’re always looking at ways to give back to our users and provide money-can’t-buy experiences that add value to their lives.

“The priority for us will always be empowering women and focusing on their safety as they exercise that. We hope this experience can bring some brilliant people looking for love together in a meaningful, safe and fun environment.”

Bumble users can sign up for the experience by swiping right on a special card within the app. After that, they will need to submit a short video explaining why they should be selected.

The event will take place in October. Bumble will announce the finalists on its Instagram account in the near future.
