Spas for Body and Soul

Maldives Spas for Body and SoulThe spas in Maldives offer a range of therapies and massages, including Thai-style massage, Shiatsu, and other types of fusion massages, all the while surrounded by the exotic aromas of essential oils and the natural, tropical environment.

 

Sea-Inspired Spas

Sea-Inspired Spa at Banyan Tree MaldivesA visit to the Maldives is all about sights and sounds. It’s perfect for exploring the fabulous marine life, the exotic waters and the rich underground sealife. The Maldivian landscape is like none other. You’ll find spas in Maldives to be in keeping with the lush, tropical surroundings, with a focus on natural beauty and enhancing those experiences with things like essential oils and aromatherapy, and invigorating massage.

It goes without saying that the Banyan Tree Maldives is one of the premier locations for a spa vacation. This romantic getaway is located on a coral atoll, and you’ll be surrounded by all of the natural beauty Maldives has to offer. The Conrad Maldives, on Rangali and Rangalifinolhu Islands, is another site full of natural beauty, and holistic treatments and healing cuisine. The Conrad is well known for its food as well as its service and spa facilities.

For one of the most unusual experiences in the spa world though, the Six Senses Spa features massage tables that sit atop a glass floor that sits over the ocean.

Sand Massage

Maldives Rejuvenating Sand MassageWhile visiting here, there is one very unique massage that must be tried, and that is the Maldivian sand massage. Do you remember playing on the beach as a child, and being partially buried in the sand by your brothers and sisters? It was great fun, and it felt good, too. The Maldivian sand massage takes that to the next level. It is performed right on the beach, and uses cool sand as part of the massage treatment and as an exfoliation, and it’s usually followed up with coconut oil. It’s a very gentle treatment, unlike the deep-tissue massages typical of other parts of South and Southeast Asia. The sand massage is a technique that is hundreds of years old, and is said to relieve tension as well as chronic pain.
