There are so many reasons to travel to the Maldives. This part of the world is a treasure of 26 atolls made up of 1,192 islands floating in the Indian ocean. There’s sun, surf, spa, diving, and snorkeling. But how good does it feel to take time out to cleanse and rejuvenate your being at one of the most luxurious resorts in the world? Reached only by seaplane, the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru houses a first-class Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat with healing, anti-aging, spa, yoga and detox.
You can stay in those over-the-water villas but we love the beach bungalow villas located a few footprints in the sand from the sea (taking a dip in the calm bath-like warm waters at sunrise is such a uplifting way to greet the world). These beach villas come with all the essentials to help you cultivate the art of doing nothing including a hammock, a massive bathtub, tropical outdoor shower and your own private pool – strip off, go barefoot and feel free!
SPA & WELLBEING
This spa is medically accredited, and every resort guest has the opportunity to take up the complimentary consultation with the resident Ayurvedic physician.
When you enter the Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat, the rhythmic sound of OM vibrates throughout the herbal gardens. It consists of three acres of serene greenery, a herb garden and spa huts including an open-air pavilions and an Ayurvedic Pharmacy.
Want to tread gently into the world of Ayurveda? We recommend one of the Ayurvedic Immersions such as the 7-day Explore or the 14-day Absorb. These include accommodation, meals, transfers and a health consultation followed by a prescribed series of treatments, herbal medicines and tonics, yoga, nutrition and cooking classes. However, if you feel ready to go the next level with your health then book in for a 14-21 day intensive Panchakarma that is a more serious detox supervised by the Ayurvedic Physician.
YOGA & FITNESS
There are seventeen complimentary yoga classes to explore at the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. This was also the first luxury resort in the region to launch Anti-Gravity Yoga. Other yoga styles to explore here include Ashtanga, Power, Haatha, Aqua, Pregnancy yoga, yoga nidra and meditation. While there's so many high-energy activities to do here including surfing, diving, snorkeling and swimming, switching off and doing absolutely nothing is also 'wellness' too!
