Mindfulness in the Maldives
Maldives– From manta ray encounters to heavenly spa treatments, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is a place where simplicity is the essence of luxury, allowing guests to step away from their fast-paced lives to discover a haven of serenity and solitude.
Situated only 25 minutes via speedboat from Malé International Airport, true barefoot luxury awaits all arrivals to this small yet perfectly formed island, where an arresting medley of salubrious sunshine, unblemished cyan waters and pristine beaches frame every view.
The perfect antidote to a 24/7 lifestyle, guests are lulled into relaxation and encouraged to press pause as soon as they step foot onto this desert island dwelling. Upon request, they can ask for a TV-free villa, allowing them to truly disconnect from the world, only following local news, such as a turtle laying her eggs or a whale shark paying a visit. With no deadlines or targets, guests are left to spend the days as they wish, living in the moment and soaking in the alluring surroundings. Awake as the sun rises to stretch with a yoga session, exhaling life’s daily stresses. Ease out any aches and pains under the expert touch of therapists at the award-winning spa. Enjoy a meditative dive to witness a kaleidoscope of colours and spot hawksbill turtle or two. Or simply sit-back and watch as daily life island unfolds, whether it’s a shoal of silvery fish passing by, a dazzling sunset or a fisherman bringing in his haul.
Guests looking to embrace a genuine state of pure relaxation can choose to stay in a Spa Sanctuary Pool Villa, offering unlimited spa treatments in the privacy of their villa, complete with private plunge pool. Professionally trained therapists are on hand to devise a programme tailored towards individual needs and requirements so guests can return home with renewed energy and clarity.
The Spa Sanctuary Pool Villa at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is available from AED4,444 per night and includes:
– Unlimited complimentary spa treatments* for two guests per villa per day (*based on a special spa menu designed for in-villa treatments)
– Additional spa treatments for a third person for a 20% discount
