“Now more than ever, travelers are looking for new wellness experiences to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit,” says Etienne Dalancon, general manager at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi. “We are excited to expand our spa offerings and provide unparalleled wellness journeys for our guests. The Aqua Wellness Center and hydrotherapy pool are harmonious havens of wellbeing and aim to quickly reset travelers’ bodies so they can enjoy the Maldives to the fullest.”
As well as the hydrotherapy pool, the new Aqua Wellness Center is home to the Maldives’ first-ever wellness concierge, where guests can speak to experts about the expanded experiential spa menu. As well as various massage therapies, crystal healing and holistic medicine treatments, there are options for guests to take part in meditation or yoga sessions at the center. After their wellness treatments, guests can also enjoy a specially curated lunch in the center’s luscious gardens.
“Through these new amenities, we will not only offer access to world-class facilities and spa therapists but also globally celebrated experts, who are ready to pass on their wealth of knowledge,” Dalancon continues. “Furthermore, our new healthy menu designed in collaboration with our poolside restaurant, The Ledge by Dave Pynt, will be a place for our guests to nourish from within and complete their holistic wellness journey.”
