It’s not at all rare for Amilla Fushi to try something new; this time they’re showing off their all-wood Wellness Café and juice bar. This little joint is right by Amilla’s Javvu Spa, and promises delicious, all-natural fare.
The café suits those on a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet – its whole approach revolves around sourcing unprocessed and seasonal ingredients. There’s also a tasteful mix of paleo, organic, vegan, vegetarian and gluten free snacks. Superfood fanatics, this is for you: the curated menu promotes natural healing through gut-friendly, immune-boosting superfoods with low salt content, free of refined sugars. Careful preparation and cooking techniques are in place to highlight the ingredients’ natural flavours.
Amilla’s flavourful treats include poke reef fish with pickled jalapeño, wakame salad, beetroot, avocado, MCT oil and ginger; beef carpaccio in MCT oil, capers, spinach, black olives and parmesan; and grilled chicken in coconut oil, Asian cabbage and pumpkin seeds.
And the juice bar puts out a range of healthy brews: cold-pressed superfood juices, nourishing protein smoothies, detox tonics and SupremeBeing ketogenic shakes to revitalise guests and leave them ready to embark on their wellness journeys in the serene setting of the island.
Ultimate anti-aging, neuro-protective and anti-inflammatory boosts come via Amilla’s Signature ‘Investment Smoothies’ – The Vault and Amilla Timeless. These magical concoctions are brimming with superfoods, micronutrients and probiotics to protect and promote gut health.
The Wellness Café is open daily for drinks and snacks from 10am to 6pm and for lunch from 1pm to 3pm. Meanwhile, adjacent Javvu Spa has ten treatment pods, a yoga pavilion, fitness centre, a wet area and a private training studio. Javvu’s debuted cannabidiol (CBD) treatments in the Maldives and its well-rounded approach to wellness incorporates ancient and cutting edge massaging techniques and products. This newest, health-focussed culinary addition to Amilla goes a long way towards establishing the property as a true wellness retreat.
