New Spa Menu combines modern techniques with ancient traditions
The chance to detox, improve sleeping patterns, banish cellulite or feel the benefits of a natural ‘botox’ treatment are all part and parcel of the Hilton Maldives Iru Fushi Resort & Spa’s newly launched spa menu.
The largest spa in the Maldives provides guests with a wealth of options to suit every goal, offering a range of facial, body and massage therapies, as well as beauty treatments, signature rituals and specialist honeymoon and men’s treatments based on the philosophy of ‘organic earth and vibrant sea’. A combination of Thalgo products, which draw upon the richness of the marine universe, as well as traditional Ayurvedic therapies overseen by the resident Ayurvedic Doctor provide both the benefits of modern technology with age-old healing traditions.
For a January detox, highlights include the Rasayana Arogya four-day Rejuvenation and Detox package, based on the yearly treatments taken by the kings and queens of ancient India. Designed to nourish cells and tissues, improve immunity, detoxify and support the harmony of body, mind and soul, the ritual incorporates a consultation with the Ayurvedic Doctor, an Abhyangam Massage, a Njavara Kizhi treatment using warmed rice poultices to balance individual Doshas, or Ksheera Sekam, a rejuvenating treatment using warmed medicated milkpoured onto the body.
This is followed by Shirodhara an invigorating body massage whereby warm oil is poured onto the forehead or ‘third eye’, or Ksheera Dhara, a similar full body massage treatment enhanced with the pouring of medicated milk over the third eye. The treatment concludes with Udwarthanam a detoxifying and exfoliating herbal massage and Steam Bath.
For an alternative approach to the detox process, the Pure Collagen by Thalgo treatment is designed to provide intensive hydration for sun-damaged skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles using pure native collagen extract.
The spa features 20 individual spa pavilions, including 5 dedicated Ayurvedic suites, hydrotherapy, plunge pools, sauna and steam, and a dedicated relaxation area overlooking the tranquil spa gardens. Yoga and Meditation are also available for individual and group tuition.
