Influencer Marketing:
Soneva x Declan Chan

With the intention to establish more in-depth collaboration with influencers for Soneva, Petrie PR invited Declan Chan, Hong Kong fashion stylist, creative consultant and travel influencer for a pilot campaign.


For this collaboration with Soneva, Declan was inspired by the resort’s eco-luxury positioning, its gastronomy and zero mosquito control initiatives, that prompted him to produce creative social media content in the form of Instagram Reels and Stories (84.5k followers on Instagram). He also shared the creative content on TikTok (99.4k followers). As a result, not only did he generate an excellent result of over 3,000 engagements on Instagram, but also enquiries and conversions from his followers.
