One of the most beautiful properties in the Indian Ocean, the Baa Atoll’s Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has created a new ultimate wellness retreat package with an experience that goes beyond physical health, offering to replenish and rejuvenate both body and mind with two wellness pillars: sleep enrichment and body detox restore.
The resort will treat guests to a unique wellness journey through innovative and bespoke programmes addressing matters from digestive issues and imbalances in nutrition, to stress, anxiety and insomnia, developed with the expert advice of Anantara Spa’s wellness experts, therapists, and nutritionists.
Both the Sleep and Detox programmes start with a wellness consultation and assessment that include epigenetic testing that provides a detailed report about the body’s level of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants, and contaminants. The report also highlights to guests which nutritional and environmental factors are impacting their body’s cells and gives lifestyle and diet recommendations to optimise their health. Anantara Kihavah is the first and only resort in the Maldives where guests can avail Cell Wellbeing’s’ Epigenetic testing technology.
The Sleep Enrichment Programme is designed to help restore normal sleep levels, through measuring sleep quality and quantity by means of a consultation with a trained sleep guru, yoga session and breathing exercises, Vitamin IV infusion and health supplements, natural therapies, as well as a nutrition plan adapted to the needs of the individual.
A signature highlight is Subtle Energies’ industry recognised Sleep Support Therapy, an in-depth treatment, which will assist on a hormonal level to aid better sleep. Backed by a wealth of clinical research, it includes a short, guided breathing technique and meditation session, optional mini nasya or nasal oil application and an advanced level holistic massage. The Facial Marma Massage included in the treatment uses a special serum and techniques to assist with sleep, stress and anxiety, the treatment ending with a specialised savasana which reprogrammes the body.
You’ll also enjoy a Blissful Marma Massage, a full body advanced holistic massage that incorporates Ayurveda methods fused with modern techniques such as deep tissue, reflexology, aromatherapy and lymphatic drainage, with a special emphasis on the Marmas. The treatment includes Subtle Energies’ signature Anti-ageing Facial Marma Massage that increases circulation and collagen to the skin.
Alternatively, the Body Detox Restore Programme is a natural and holistic approach to physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing that seeks to create and maintain health and longevity within the individual, aiming to purify both inside and out.
The holistic experience includes lifestyle consultations and therapeutic treatments, lymphatic drainage massages, as well as restorative yoga, daily meditation, and healthy meal recommendations, to aid the detoxifying process. Look out for the Detox and Adrenal Boost Journey, a comprehensive purification process using highly potent active ingredients such as tulasi, wild turmeric and Indian lime which works towards blood purification, energising and stimulating the cells and lymphatics whilst also boosting adrenal fatigue. The journey begins with a full exfoliation, followed by a toning detox wrap, and concludes with Subtle Energies’ signature massage that will release tension, lymphatic drainage, and work the Marmas.
Guests can indulge in these curated wellness experiences and select between the five-day package starting from US$2,019, seven-day package starting from US$2,710, and fourteen-day package starting from US$4,918, all per person. Villas start from US$1,500 per night.
