Imagine escaping to an island home away from home, a uniquely serene wellness retreat surrounded only by lush swaying palms and endless tropical skies. Ascending to a private, pampering haven 12 metres up amongst the treetops, letting the cares of the bustling world fall away and succumbing to a revitalizing, blissful reverie where recharging and recovery are paramount. Wellness wishful thinking? Not at Amilla Fushi: an exclusive collaboration between this luxury Maldives resort and global healthy living phenomenon Bodyism has borne spectacular fruit, with the creation of the idyllic island’s new Wellness Tree Houses by Bodyism.
The new Wellness Tree Houses are private one-bedroom spa ‘nests’ with their own dedicated treatment suites, high in the treetops, where guests can enjoy a uniquely personal, inclusive wellness experience delivered by Bodyism Performance Specialists. After a personal ‘Body Oracle’ consultation, the Bodyism team helps Wellness Tree House guests to create their own programme from an integrated menu of Javvu Spa treatments and Bodyism fitness and wellness classes designed to re-establish energy flows, revive the mind, increase circulation and create a foundation for balance and health. Rates also include full board meals – and minibar snacks – from a specially designed Clean and Lean menu.
In addition to a private treetop treatment suite, the contemporary and sleek air-conditioned 220 sqm Wellness Tree Houses also feature their own cantilevered inifinity pools looking out over the tree canopy; an indoor living room area with sofa and work desk; a spacious bathroom and outdoor showers. Guests who decide against a complete digital detox can also enjoy a 42 inch flat-screen TV and satellite channels.
Exclusive Wellness Tree House by Bodyism retreats will periodically be personally overseen by Bodyism founder James Duigan himself. The first of these will take place from 4 – 11 May 2017, and will include a series of morning talks by James on ‘The ‘4 Pillars of Health’ – nutrition, movement, mindset and sleep.
The launch of the new Wellness Tree Houses by Bodyism augments Amilla’s ‘spa village’, Javvu Spa. Situated under a canopy of banyan trees at the heart of the island, Javvu features 10 private 48 sqm treatment pods, a large open-plan fitness centre, contemporary personal training studio and outdoor ‘jungle gym’ – all overlooking the Indian Ocean. Yoga, pilates, meditation and pranayama are led on the spa jetty over the lagoon, while a buzzy, shaded communal space provides a sociable hub complete with interactive shopping, lifestyle consultations and the new Island Café by Clean and Lean.
Javvu’s holistic approach is complemented by an integrated spa menu featuring results-driven treatments from a carefully edited selection of world-class brands; Bodyism wellness and fitness programmes and sessions using both the natural environment and the latest high-tech gym equipment; and ancient healing and energy therapies.
