Velaa Private Island is opening in January 2014 and promises to introduce us to a new level of luxury to the Maldives.
Velaa Private Island is one of a few hotels around the world to be offering Spa My Blend By Clarins. Velaa Private Island prides themselves in extreme personalisation, which is radiated in Spa My Blend By Clarins’ seven tailored wellness programs, including: Relax, Detox, Under The Sun, Vitality, Men’s Power Pack, Ever Young and HoneyMoon. The bespoke products developed by Dr. Olivier Courtin have been carefully created, combining the alchemy of science, plants and the art of touch, to produce truly visible, lasting results.
Spa My Blend By Clarins is spread across eight of Velaa’s “small islands” each of which house secluded treatment villas, beauty salons, and experience zones with saunas, steam rooms and an ever-flow Jacuzzi. All of this is ocean fronted with a juice bar to quench your thirst. Alongside their holistic treatments, the spa showcases the first “Snow Room” in the Maldives, perfect for circulation, skin rejuvenation and causing somewhat of a contrast to island life.
In keeping with our impending resolutions of a New Year, New me, New body, there are many forms of fitness and wellbeing experiences that can be explored on the island. These include personal training sessions that are on offer on the raised-tree platform overlooking lush island gardens. Whilst the Velaa Golf Academy by Olazabal means a late afternoon game is never out of the question, but if perfecting your golf swing is not your thing, then benefit from the philosophy that outer peace comes form inner harmony; the yoga pavilion awaits for a session with Velaa’s yogi master in your pursuit of all consuming relaxation.
Guests can indulge in the spectacular Michelin star cuisine by Adeline Grattard and for the epicurean in you Velaa Private Island boasts the most extensive wine cellar in the Indian Ocean. What’s more there are even submarine expeditions for two on offer and of course a dive centre; just to satisfy your inner adventurer.
Here the essence of Maldivian culture, lifestyle and landscape, meets limitless opportunities, allowing guests to feel that this is their very own private island.
