Set in the secluded wilderness of the resort’s inland jungle, the luxury Tented Jungle Villas at Fairmont Maldives take the serenity of the spa outdoors. With the jungle canopy providing a playlist of nature, and nothing but fresh air and lush surroundings in sight, guests can peacefully indulge in pampering Ayurvedic rituals specially curated using waters from the Indian Ocean and herbs from the Maldivian gardens. From soaking in the outdoor roll-top pool under the shade of palm trees swaying gently in the seabreeze, to bathing on the sun-drenched deck to the backdrop of the island’s verdant flora and fauna, nature and wellness effortlessly combine to create moments of serenity at Fairmont Maldives.
For those who find their zen through mindful movement, the resort offers private outdoor yoga sessions next to the infinity pool – which is the largest in the Maldives. New for summer, Fairmont Maldives has also launched anti-gravity yoga sessions; this challenging workout brings together a unique blend of stretching, breathing techniques, meditation, gymnastics and aerial arts, where a soft parachute-silk hammock is suspended from the ceiling to support the body as guests move from one position to the next.
Being creative is a great way to unwind, and Fairmont has tapped into this stress release tactic by offering mindful art sessions with the resort’s resident artist. Here, guests can use the tropical island surroundings as inspiration to paint, sculpt or draw using natural materials such as wood and coconuts, either in the Art Studio or on the sugar-white sand beach. After letting their creativity run wild, guests can take a serene sailing expedition to an uninhabited island for an intimate castaway picnic, enjoy a sunset fishing experience aboard a traditional Maldivian dhoni or snorkel the pristine coral reef with a marine biologist; surrounded by manta rays, turtles, and pods of bottlenose and spinner dolphins.
For true tranquillity, the Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Maldives offers luxury treatments and wellness experiences in both indoor and outdoor treatment areas. Relaxation-seekers can indulge in aromatherapy, peaceful garden meditation or guided stretching sessions to unwind overlooking the calming azure blue ocean, before enjoying a fresh herbal tea in the Seaview relaxation lounges and taking a dip in the spa’s serenity pool, where varying water temperatures work to enhance guests’ holistic journey.
