3 Reasons You Need to Spa In the Maldives this Summer

Turquoise waters, pristine beaches and enchanting lagoons are just a few of the musings the Maldives bring to mind. The island archipelago sits to the south of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean, and is comprised of 26 separate atolls — ring-shaped coral reefs that encircle a lagoon. Visitors flock here for pristine white beaches, over-the-water bungalows and to swim with manta rays at Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve. And if relaxing at the beach isn’t enough, the island group offers some of the best spa experiences in the world. Read on to find out the best ways to pamper yourself this summer.

 

The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru

The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru offers an ayurvedic retreat embracing nature with open-air garden pavilions and Indian-influenced design. Of their 10 treatment rooms, three are dedicated to ayurveda, the Indian science of life. When you check in you have the option to receive a 30-minute physical consultation to determine what your body needs in terms of food, herbs and treatments. You can also opt for one of the resort’s many immersive experiences like their Ayurvedic Immersion, a seven day all-inclusive experience that includes six meetings with ayruvedic physicians, three private yoga classes, Dosha-specific cooking class, seven nights’ accommodation in a beach bungalow with private pool and seven spa treatments.

 

Milaidhoo Serenity Spa

Maldives, at Milaidhoo is a new resort that aims to reinvent luxury. Accommodations alone at the hotel include 50 villas that all have private fresh water pools. The spa is a stunner as well. Soak up the island experience in over-water treatment rooms that team relaxation with sweeping views of the ocean and sky. It’s here where you can take part in the Serenity Spa and Lime Ceremony, which involves aromas of lavender and lime. This ceremony begins with a full body exfoliation, followed by an idyllic immersion into a luxurious milk bath in preparation for an indulgent full body massage. With its roots originating in African tribal influences of the region, the full treatment involves a 30-minute African Earth Body Exfoliation, 30-minute River Rapids Milk Bath and hour-long East African Wood Massage.

 

The Spa at Baros Maldives Resort

The spa, inside the boutique luxury resort situated on a coral island ringed by a sandy beach and living-house reef, is set within a tropical garden with flowing water. Each treatment room is outfitted with a tropical rain shower and enclosed private garden area with a spa bath and relaxation pavilion. This summer, indulge in the Baros Signature Combination. The spa’s signature treatment uses natural white sand and island coconut to fully exfoliate your body. You’re scrubbed down after basking in a private steam room. After all your dry skin has been removed, step into a tropical garden rain shower to reveal your new healthy, glowing facade. The treatment continues with a body and mind massage, that combines four different techniques that bridge mind, body and soul. The two-and-a-half-hour treatment is topped off with a coconut hair ritual.
