Ayurveda – The Science of Life
A stay at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru can be a life-changing experience. From the remote island existence to exquisite foods and diving opportunities, it’s impossible to ignore the infectious tranquility. But to revolutionize your life from the ground up, we have just the thing: aryurveda.
Meaning “science of life,” ayurveda is a holistic approach to balancing mind, body and spirit. Tapping into 5,000 years of Indian wisdom and practice, the Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru offers individually designed programs lasting from one to four weeks, as well as a three-day Ayurveda remedy program and single spa treatments.
The key to the Spa’s success, explains Lucy Kennington, Director of Spa, is its ability to meet and exceed the progressive needs of its increasingly spa-savvy clientele: “Our guests are now looking at treatments in a different way. They are a lot more open to the holistic world and through in-depth programs like our Ayurvedic Immersions and Chakra Blessings we are opening them up to the benefits of preventative wellness and energy healing."
Perhaps the best place to start is with a complimentary assessment by our resident ayurvedic physician. It’s just the first step in a journey that continues with a series of highly tailored treatments in our garden and over-water pavilions.
The Ayurvedic Program doesn’t stop at meal time. Special dosha-specific ayurvedic meals are customized to individual programs, with ingredients grown in the ayurvedic garden that also supplies herbal poultices for treatments. Each of the four gourmet restaurants at the Resort feature ayruvedic labelling, so every delicious bite can work towards balancing your mind, body and spirit—and maybe even change your life.
