Angasana Resort & Spa Maldives Ihuru Announces Spring Promotion

Angsana Resort & Spa Maldives Ihuru has announced a spring promotion. For a limited period until 30 September 2005, guests staying four nights need only pay for three nights at published rates, starting from US$490+ per villa per night.
To further pamper guests, Angsana Spa Maldives Ihuru is offering a complimentary spa treatment with every purchase of a la carte spa treatment. In addition to complimentary return speedboat transfers for 2 persons, guests enjoy daily breakfast and dinner with this promotional package.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Angsana Ihuru features 45 beachfront villas, each coupled with a private garden, a veranda with a Maldivian swing, and an outdoor shower. The décor is an invigorating mix of tropical and contemporary styles, with modern furnishings and vibrant colours to reflect its East-meets-West fusion of Thai and Balearic inspiration.

As one of the best dive sites in Maldives, the resort naturally provides a wide variety of sea sports facilities, including a diving school which was awarded the PADI ‘Gold Palm Resort’ certification. Snorkelling is just a step away, as the coral reefs are located a few metres from the beach. A special attraction is the Dolphin Safari, which is conducted twice a week. The excursions take place in the evening accompanied by champagne, canapés and fresh juices, and guides who help to spot the island’s famous dolphins. The Safari costs US$65++ per person, and is on going until November.

One of the most picturesque island in the Maldives, Ihuru escaped damage from the Asian Tsunami, and continues to delight visitors with palm-fringed beaches, crystalline waters and pristine reef. It is located on the North Malé Atoll just 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé, the capital of Maldives, and the Malé International Airport.

Catering To Every Sense

At the signature Angsana Spa, guests indulge in soothing treatments that focus on the healing sense of touch and the use of natural ingredients to pamper the body, mind and spirit. Aloe Sunkisser and other Essence of Angsana packages are treats that complement your sunny vacation. The spa treatments are carried out at 8 luxurious spa pavilions, 2 of which are equipped with steam baths.


To tempt the discerning diner, the resort boasts an excellent restaurant, Riveli, offering a marriage of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of local flavour. Guests can also opt for a private in-villa barbecue or a romantic dinner for two on a remote sandbank. To end the evening, they can relax at the Velaavani Bar and maybe spot a turtle swimming by in the lagoon.

A Job Well Done

Banyan Tree established the Tsunami Recovery Fund on 3 January 2005. Proceeds have been used to rebuild 68 houses on the island of Naalaafushi, Maldives. Staff of Banyan Tree Maldives Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru completed the house reconstruction project, as well as delivered clothing, food and educational materials to the local school. Guests may donate US$1 a day to the Fund, which is matched dollar-for-dollar by the Banyan Tree Group. As the Maldives depends heavily on tourism, every visitor counts towards the recovery of its economy.
