The Aqua Wellness Centre and hydrotherapy pool are harmonious havens of wellbeing
– Etienne Dalancon
Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has upgraded its spa with a new Aqua Wellness Centre to enhance guests’ wellness journey.

The 7,735sq ft Aqua Wellness Centre features a custom-built hydrotherapy pool, ice fountain, steamroom and sauna, and also offers a new menu of water therapy treatments to relieve stress and instil a sense of relaxation.

The 2,906sq ft outdoor hydrotherapy pool is designed in zones, where each station of the pool has been designed to carefully target a different part of the body.

The zones – which include jet bath, air jets, shower jets and massage loungers – use varying levels of intensity and water temperature that aim to ease muscle tension, boost the immune system, increase blood circulation, speed up metabolism and improve deep sleep quality.

A highlight of the new menu includes the 120-minute Aquatherapy Escape package costing US$380 (€320, £272) per person.

The day consists of a targeted 120-minute hydrotherapy session designed by a wellness concierge, followed by a curated healthy lunch in the garden to help restore the pH balance of the body.

Finally, guests receive a detox water therapy massage and a choice between a bespoke meditation or yoga session.

Alongside the expanded spa menu, Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi welcomes a diverse range of leading wellness experts to the property who’ll guide guests through holistic and highly customised treatments in private sessions.

The lineup of global experts – with specialities ranging from holistic medicine to martial arts and crystal healing to Ayurvedic doctors – is designed to help guests achieve wellness of the mind and body long after visiting the resort.

“The Aqua Wellness Centre and hydrotherapy pool are harmonious havens of wellbeing and aim to quickly reset travellers’ bodies so they can enjoy the Maldives to the fullest,” said Etienne Dalancon, resort GM general manager.

“Furthermore, our new healthy menu designed in collaboration with our poolside restaurant, The Ledge by Dave Pynt, will be a place for our guests to nourish from within and complete their holistic wellness journey.”

All spa journeys at Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi begin with a meeting with the Wellness Concierge – who curate a programme for each guest to find the journey that will deliver equilibrium in mind, body and soul.
