Five-star resorts from the Accor Maldives Collection will be offering new wellness experiences to celebrate Global Wellness Day on 11 June.
Global Wellness Day is celebrated in more than 100 countries from sunrise in New Zealand until sunset in Hawaii on the second Saturday of June every year, encompassing exercise, beauty treatments, spiritual teachings, ways of thinking, and harmony between body and spirit.
Accor’s resorts in the Maldives are preparing to mark the occasion with a range of special activities, including a beginner’s free diving workshop with Hawaii free diver Jessica Cao at the Pullman Maldives Maamutaa and self-massage and singing bowl workshops at Raffles Meradhoo Maldives.
Pullman Maldives Maamutaa
Pullman Maldives is running a special ‘Aqua Week’ from 7th-12th June, to promote the wellbeing benefits of all things inspired by the sea.
This will include healthy aquatic-themed elements on 11th June, which will start with a sunrise yoga session in the lagoon. There will be a special 90-minute spa treatment using Phytomer (marine based natural care products) available throughout the day, and in the evening, sea-inspired energy-packed cocktails will be available across the resort.
Internationally renowned free diver from Hawaii, Jessica Cao, will also be at the resort for the event to lead a workshop on 11th June which will include a breathing and mediation class and an introduction to free diving for beginners.
Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi
Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is bridging the gap between tourism and wellness by creating reflective spaces to induce wellness throughout the resort. In an effort to encourage guests to enjoy a personal oasis experience, the resort has introduced The Willow Stream Spa. This relaxing spa experience combines four cornerstones of health to offer a rejuvenating sensory journey by balancing the elements of earth, air, fire, water, and wood and leaves guests balanced and in harmony with nature’s equilibrium.
Additionally, a new series of ‘Reset Programs’ have been introduced. Entitled, ’The Secret Key to Happiness and Wellness’, they include holistic therapies for body and soul and a selection of carefully curated treatments authentically connected to the Maldives island culture. Each program highlights the resort’s own indigenous practices, nutritional programs and is designed for couples, friends and families.
The spa itself is nestled in a 2000 sqm wellness area, enabling guests to renew their energy by spending time in both indoor and outdoor spaces designed to reconnect beyond the treatment experience and the resort itself is home to the longest infinity pool in the Maldives.
Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort
At Raffles Meradhoo Maldives, Global Wellness Day will start with a sunrise yoga session led by the resort’s experienced in-house practitioner Ansuman. Based on the simple premise of increasing global consciousness of living well, both physically and spiritually, the resort’s day of celebration will also feature a variety of complimentary activities and amenities that promote spiritual and physical wellbeing, including a self-massage workshop, singing bowl session and mediation class to follow the sunrise yoga session.
Raffles Maldives Meradhoo spans two islands, one natural and one overwater, built in a Maldivian style, with the resort’s spa set over the water. Each luxurious treatment is based on native ingredients and ancient rituals, combining the therapeutic power of nature with the latest techniques.
