Waldorf Astoria has opened its fifth property in Asia across three islands in the Maldives.
The sizeable Waldorf Astoria Ithaafushi boasts 122 villas, 11 dining venues and a spa with 10 treatment villas nestled in its botanical gardens and reaching out over the water.
It claims to offer “the Maldives first wellness concierge” where “crafted solutions” will be put together following a personal consultation.
The menu of 50-plus treatments features Asian-inspired therapies – from Balinese massage to reflexology – themed around relaxation, rebalancing and results.
The soothing Ocean Starlight, a signature 90-minute ritual for US$280 (€251, £230), for example takes place in a Spa Pavilion under the Maldivian starts where guests can relax to the sound of gently lapping waves. Elemental Herbology massages are also available.
Results-driven oxygen, collagen and 24-carat gold facials are delivered by Carol Joy London and LPG Endermologie tackles cellulite. Meanwhile, family treatments allow guests to bond with their children.
