Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences, situated in the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, has unveiled Wellness Your Way, a new, holistic and highly customised approach to wellness based on nutrition, plant-based remedies, mindfulness and movement.

In the spa

Amilla’s Javvu Spa has brought together modern herbalism with the ancient knowledge of local Maldivian medicine, or Dhivehi Beys, to develop a range of plant-based remedies harnessing all the properties and powers of freshly picked island-grown herbs. Spa rituals at the spa have also been enhanced with the inclusion of sound therapy into all body treatments, in order to promote restful sleep.

Wellness Your Way offers dairy-free, gluten-free, low-carb, keto and vegan and vegetarian menus

On the menu

Wellness Your Way enables guests to experience different ‘eating lifestyles’ with a wide choice of dairy-free, gluten-free, low-carb, keto and vegan and vegetarian menus across all of the resort’s dining outlets. Ingredients grown on the island including lettuce, purslane and kulha fila greens have been incorporated into healthy salads.

Cocktail menus have been reworked to offer probiotic sodas and a sugar-free section, and the resort has swapped pillow chocolates at turn-down for natural, sleep-enhancing treats.

Movement in motion

Situated in the shade of banyan trees, Amilla’s new Jungle Gymnasium features island-made, outdoor fitness equipment including barbells, a coconut weight machine and monkey bars, encouraging guests to swap their well-worn workout playlists for birdsong and fresh air.

Be well...
