Landaa Giraavaru and Kuda Huraa, Maldives – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The Four Seasons’ two divine properties in the idyllic Maldives have introduced amazing new spa experiences in a rather tempting attempt to help guests stick to their well-being resolutions in 2012. Comprising a special Night Spa, 13 new aromatherapy baths and Chakra balancing, these new offerings care holistically for mind, body and soul.
Check into The Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat at Four Seasons Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru for a truly life-changing spa session (or series of sessions). Here specialists will determine which of your Chakras—seven centers of spiritual power and the inner circulation of energy—are out of balance, and recommend treatment accordingly. For couples that need to reconnect, the Swadhisthana treatment, featuring a nourishing scrub, shower and massage with warming oils, invigorates the desire for life and love. The Manipura treatment (an energizing foot and body scrub, plus mud wrap and massage) does wonders for those seeking renewed inner strength, health and confidence.
Not to be outdone, Four Seasons Maldives at Kuda Huraa boasts a brand new Bath Ritual Menu featuring 13 carefully conceived aromatherapy baths that can be prepared for guests in the comfort of their suite. Soak in tranquility with the grounding Temple Calm, featuring earthy sandalwood and cedar wood, and perfectly completed with a glass of Hennessey cognac and a fine cigar. The Dynamic Detox will restore clarity to body and mind, with an invigorating, fragrant combination of rose, seaweed, arnica, mint and rosemary.
Night owls will love Kuda Huraa’s extended island spa hours, which allow guests to experience the healing properties of Sodashi’s therapeutic-grade extracts, essences and techniques alongside the magic of the Maldives’ infinite night sky. From 10pm until 1am, four rituals—Reflect (new moon), Nourish (waxing moon), Harmonize (full moon) and Release (waning moon)—will align serenity seekers with the natural rhythms linked to the comings and goings of the luminous moon.
