Mother Nature seems to have shown a special prejudice while fashioning the Maldives, a stunning island nation that embodies the best of an Indian Ocean holiday experience. The soft, white sands, the pristine beaches, transparent waters, mesmerising underwater life and corals and an overwhelming sense of peace and calm that prevails here make it an ideal stop for a little soul-searching. Not to forget the world-class holistic treatment centres, catering to tourists and their over-worked senses. If a spiritual holiday in the Maldives is on your mind, these are your best options:

The Underwater Spa

When the world’s first and only underwater spa sends out an invitation, you are guaranteed tonnes of people around the world will take notice. Luckily for a Maldivian holidaymaker, the experience awaits right on the private resort island of Huvafen Fushi. Experience the other-worldly calm that presides over the Huvafen Spa, shutting the noise of the surface and instilling a sense of well-being through a range of holistic treatments. Additionally, the couple’s treatment rooms provide a panoramic view of reefs and underwater life.

Yoga at the Sea

You must have heard of Ashtanga Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Vikram Yoga and such, but have you ever come to know of the SUP Yoga? If not, the Maldives will surprise you with this unique style of yoga focused on reconnecting one with the nature and one’s own body. The practitioner practices on a Stand-Up Paddleboard with the goal of concentrating only on the moment at hand. As the water changes its mood (or current), one tries to balance the body in the harmonious attempt to be one with nature. This style of yoga is believed to improve core strength in addition to the body balance.

Meditation

One of the most potent tools for overall wellness, meditation opportunities are offered to visitors at several resorts and centres across the Maldives. But nowhere else are the sessions as refreshing and mindful as at Como Shambhala on the Cocoa Island. Apart from private mind and body discipline classes, this idyllic resort also arranges for family meditation classes that promote harmony between family members. One of the major highlights of these sessions will be the ancient discipline of Paranayama focusing on control of breath for optimum health and calm of mind.

Holistic Therapy Sessions

Como Maalifushi in the Maldives focuses on an array of innovative health treatments to deliver well-being of mind and body. The Dead Sea Mud Therapy is one of their prime offerings, concentrating on extraction of the impurities of the skin through gentle scrub with warm mud. The treatment relieves muscle tension and promotes blood-flow. The Marine Algae Therapy Wrap aims at stimulating metabolism and boosting circulation with the use rich minerals and vitamins for the massage. These treatments are excellent for rejuvenation as well as improving the condition of the skin.
