The Maldives are practically synonymous with relaxation, so it's fitting that the island destination would be on the cutting edge of resort-style spa treatments.
When it comes to finding wellness away from home, you'd be hard-pressed to outdo the Amilla Fushi Resort's JAVVU Spa.
"We have seen a real desire for a truly holistic approach to wellbeing from our guests, so rather than simply offering standalone spa treatments, we have created an integrated menu which focuses on the three pillars of wellness: Movement; Spirituality; and Spa," Small Maldives Island Co. Chairman Michael Flynn said in a statement.
"All three elements are essential to tackle every aspect of health, and we are proud to be the first and only resort in the Maldives to take this rounded approach," he added. "We’re working with very carefully chosen specialist partners who we believe are the very best at what they do, to create something very special for our guests."
Here's how JAVVU incorporates all three elements into guests' experience.
With exercise and activity being among the key components of overall wellness, JAVVU Spa boasts several collections of fitness programs designed to push guests to their physical limit from head to toe.
One example of this is the spa's signature "Maldivian Warrior Workout." The simple but effective workout involves tree trunks and sandbags that guests push and pull on to improve strength. Participants will also engage in fun physical activities like climbing coconut trees and swimming in the ocean.
Of course, other fitness activities including TRX, kickboxing and strength machines are available for guests seeking a more traditional approach.
Once guests have broken a sweat, they can begin the relaxation process through a variety of spiritual activities, including meditation and aromatherapy.
Tok Sen Ancient Thai therapy and Intuitive Reflexology therapy are two examples of JAVVU Spa's spiritual offerings. The former is designed to promote healing via rhythmic pressure applied with a wooden tapper, while the latter combines an ancient Tibetan practice with raindrop therapy to encourage harmony throughout the body.
Last but certainly not least, the spa is sure to erase any leftover stress. JAVVU Spa employs an expert team of specialists who offer a variety of different treatments based on guests' needs.
PURE massages, QMS Rejuvenating Facials and iLA body scrubs and wraps are among the various treatments offered here. Plus, grooming services for both men and women are also available.
Afterward, guests can heat up in the sauna or cool off in the pool.
