The Maldives’ qualities of remoteness, refreshing ocean atmosphere and laid back island life are synonymous with relaxation holidays. In turn, a relaxation holiday conjures up thoughts of being pampered while surrounded by luxuriousness. You can imagine yourself in a spa, sprawled out on a sun lounger or enjoying the privacy of your own comfy room. If it’s the spa you or your partner is dreaming of, find out what to expect and what options are on the menu in Maldives’ spas.
Considering the complementary characteristics of spas and the Maldives’ islands – it all seems like a perfect fit. Spas are relatively new in the country though, you may be surprised to know, and in a short period of about 5 years they have become common place and are found at almost every resort. They are even found on dive cruisers! Spas now come in many shapes, sizes and prices.
The Maldives Spa Range
Many resorts offer spa facilities though not all are created equal. Some resorts provide spas simply as another of their services while others completely revolve around the spa, commonly known as destination spas.
These destination spa retreats are a high end luxury holiday choice that focuses on a holistic experience of health and well-being. Combining meticulously perfected fitness, food and spa facilities these destination spa resorts immerse guests in an island refuge. Some examples are the spa villages of Cocoa Island and Conrad Maldives.
For those who seek pampering but would rather be on the move and incorporate more natural water activities, a “safari” cruise spa is ideal. This option is also great for those couples that share a love for each other but have different ideas of holiday fun, with packages dedicated either to spa or scuba dive interests or a mix of the two. Diver and non-diver couples now have an option that provides the best of both worlds and divers who usually avoid spas can give a treatment a try saying, “when in Rome”!
Another advantage to a holiday aboard a cruise spa is the range of sights you’ll see. Instead of spending the entire holiday on one island and having to board a boat each time you’d like to go explore, on a cruise you’ll see the sights effortlessly. In between spa treatments or dive excursions, just look out your bedroom window at the passing seascape or relax on the deck, sunbathing with an ever-changing view. The Scuba Spa Ying will be your dream spa experience at sea.
ScubaSpa Ying lets you experience the exotic scenery of the Maldives Islands while providing an on board spa experience.
Getting Special Treatment
When you’re abroad in a tropical destination you might like to try something new. Also, you’re in an environment where the sun and sea prevail, a fact that spas in the Maldives have taken into account and tailored their services to suit this island lifestyle.
You may have heard of after-sun treatments to sooth sun-basked skin and pre-sun exfoliation to prepare for a nice deep tan, but some packages even offer application of sunscreen throughout the day. One that is highly rated by travelers is the One&Only Reethi Rah in North Male atoll, Maldives.
On the spa menu there are as many options as in the fine restaurants: post-dive and detoxifying treatments, acupressure and nail treatments, among various ethnic massage types from Balinese to Swedish. For those who want to further enhance the decadence there are combo treatments like simultaneous facial and body massages with more than one therapist taking care of you at the same time.
Natural products like coconut and herbal oils, tropical fruits, seaweed and vanilla leaves all grace the menus of spas around the Maldives. The aromas won’t let you forget you’re in a tropical hideaway.
The Maldives Spa Experience
Needless to say, spas go out of their way to provide comfort to guests, from the bathrobes to the atmosphere of calm.
There are usually pairs of treatment tables or special bungalows for couples’ treatments and the spa facilities accommodate all the ideal elements of body leisure. Laze around in the sauna, Jacuzzi or lounge taking in rejuvenation through all the senses of smell, touch, taste and sight. Beverages and snacks keep you energized from the inside.
Booking your treatments around your “schedule” won’t be difficult considering your day is pretty much wide open. Sleep till late and wake up slowly with a massage or wind down after a busy day meeting Maldives marine life with a healthy massage “night-cap” – it’s up to you and your idea of the ideal spa holiday.
For total health and well-being some spas take into account fitness with fully-equipped gyms and exercise classes such as yoga. Yoga retreats are even popping up in the Maldives outside the resorts on local islands in guest houses like Kuri Inn on Omadhoo Island.
It’s obvious that Maldives spas have perfected the methods of incorporating tropical essences and charm while nestled in the boundless waters of the Indian Ocean. Whether tucked away in a resort or cruising the dispersed island chain, these spa experiences are a way to personalize your holiday. The packages of ScubaSpa Ying are revealed and you’ll find impressive introductory offers here.
