Award-winning Maldivian resorts, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa and Lily Beach Resort & Spa have introduced a holistic wellness experience with natural Moringa-based products and new Ayurveda applications.
The Moringa tree (Moringa oleifera), also known as the ‘Tree of Life’, grows in the two island resorts of Hideaway Beach and Lily Beach. In these resorts, Moringa leaves sourced from homegrown trees are already used to make breakfast shakes that provide guests with the necessary energy boost needed for the entire day.
The plant, which has been known for centuries for its health-promoting properties, is rich in antioxidants, and provides the body with an excellent source of protein along with vitamins and minerals (iron, calcium and potassium). The tree is said to be able to cure up to 300 diseases, and fill up the body with energy and zest for life.
In addition to the breakfast shakes, guests at Hideaway Beach Resort and Lily Beach Resort can now enjoy ZIJA International‘s Moringa-based supplements.
The two luxury resorts of Hideaway Beach and Lily Beach offer three Moringa-based products from ZIJA. Plant Protein contains a complete protein extracted from Moringa leaves that helps to feed your body with maximum nutrition, whilst the XM + Energy Mix combines the nutrition of Moringa with natural energy and performance ingredients to kick-start your day naturally. The SuperMix provides the body with the daily dose of Moringa’s components: vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants and omega oils.
Unlike other Moringa- based products, ZIJA uses all the beneficial components of the plant in its own blends, and guarantees high-quality, nutritionally-laden products. ZIJA ensures that the Moringa leaves used in their products are sourced from trees that are grown without chemicals, and are carefully harvested by hand and dried in the shade.
At Lily Beach Resort, the Moringa-based products are available at Lily Maa, Tamarind, Vibes, Aqua and Tamara Spa. Hideaway Spa, Meeru Bar and Sports Complex offer the products at Hideaway Beach Resort. However, the products are not included in the resorts’ all-inclusive packages.
Ayurveda treatments are also a new offering at the award-winning Hideaway Beach Resort.
The resort offers the Abhyanga massage, which includes a head and body massage, the Kerala massage, which focuses on the vital and energy points in the body, and the Shirodara treatment, which consists of a gentle, continuous forehead-oil casting. These traditional applications help to harmonise the essential forces of the body, strengthening both the body and mind alike whilst ensuring holistic wellbeing.
Lily Beach Resort will soon introduce Ayurvedic treatments as well.
“With the new health therapies and products, the resorts have recognised that more and more people are keen to do something good for their bodies and their minds, even when on vacation, to return to their everyday lives, recovered and rehabilitated. Lily Beach and Hideaway Beach are committed to ensuring their guests interpret the resorts as oases of peace and health, and therefore strive to offer the best treatments and products for holistic renewal,” an announcement by the resorts read.
“So one thing is certain: If you book the Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa and the Lily Beach Resort & Spa, you are guaranteed a luxurious pampering holiday with complete relaxation and holistic animation of body and soul.”
Hideaway Beach Resort is located on the crescent-shaped island of Dhonakulhi in the northernmost Haa Alif atoll of the Maldives, 290km from capital Male. Characteristic features are unique quietness, comfort and privacy in a 297,000sqm tropical setting.
