Dubai, 27 August 2013: From August 2013, the luxurious Talise Spas at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives are offering a new menu of signature spa experiences. All featured treatments use ingredients that are organic and indigenous to the region, as well as local wellness techniques to ensure a relaxing experience that reflects the idyllic surroundings.
In the southernmost part of the Maldives in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, 400 miles from the capital of Malé, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi is a secret hideaway in the heart of the Indian Ocean.. With the new Signature Spa menu, the award-winning overwater Talise Spa has curated an indulgent assortment of experiences.
For a romantic option, couples can enjoy the ‘Dhevanafushi Romance’. This Chakra Well Being experience uses essential oils including Rose, Orange Blossom, and Jasmine as part of a warm and harmonious massage. Alternatively, guests can opt for a bit of pampering with ‘Nature’s Secret’. The spa’s talented therapists follow a longstanding Maldivian tradition using the warm island sands in compress massages to melt away any accumulated stress. Additional aromatherapy massage helps to leave guests refreshed and full of vitality.
Each of the 35 villas at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi come complete with private butlers, so guests know that their every wish will be catered for; from guided snorkelling tours of the reef in the crystal clear Indian Ocean to private meals on secluded beaches. They can also head to a choice of scenic island locations for a personalised tutorial with the resort’s specialist yoga master or join a group wellness class to build strength, boost metabolism or simply unwind.
Alternatively, spa lovers looking to enjoy personalised luxury closer to Malé can opt for Jumeirah Vittaveli, just a 20-minute boat ride from Malé International Airport. Far from the clutches of stressful city life, Jumeirah Vittaveli is nestled in a spot of outstanding beauty, with every detail of a stay meticulously crafted to excite and indulge.
Perfect as refreshment after a long journey, the Talise Spa’s ‘Gift from Nature’ is a 60 minute treat that will acclimatize guests to island life. The treatment begins with a gentle skin exfoliation using a natural coconut scrub to leave skin soft and subtle. Optimizing local ingredients, the scrub is followed by a luxurious papaya and honey wrap to draw out any impurities, and finished with a soothing and deeply rich massage application of natural coconut oil. For newlyweds, the ‘Vittaveli Romance’ offers 90 minutes of pampered bliss. Couples will begin with their choice of side-by-side full body aromatic massages, before luxuriating into a deep and rich coconut milk bath.
Every villa has a private swimming pool and private beach access, where guests can enjoy discrete luxury service against a backdrop of incredible ocean views. The 5-star dive centre is a veritable hive of activity for canoeing, windsurfing and diving in one of the world’s most incredible coral reefs. To complement the work of the spa, guests can also select activities from the wellness programme, complete with kick boxing, circuit training, pilates, and a range of yoga disciplines led by the resort’s dedicated yoga master.
Note to Editors:
A ‘Signature Spa’ menu is available at both Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli. The treatments offered differ between the two hotels.
