Kuramathi Spa introduces new concept “The Essence of Wellbeing”



Maldives Promotion House – Kuramathi is an island with remarkably abundant flora, a lagoon displaying shades of blue from navy to turquoise and a powder white sandbank at the tip of the island; and that’s just some of the few reasons why guests love to return again and again to this emerald jewel. Value for money, great all inclusive plans and a fun kids club complements the long list of comforts available to our guests. This October, we are proud to unveil, the Kuramathi Spa, perfected to offer an even better spa experience to all our guests.

Following a new philosophy “the essence of well-being” and the desire to take the Spa experience to a new level, Kuramathi now manages its own Spa. New and improved, the Spa is now your ultimate gateway to connect with your inner self and attain a state of tranquility. The therapies and treatments at the Spa have been aligned to same level of service and quality offered by the rest of the resort.

Upon arrival, you are greeted and welcomed to the Spa by a team of Spa professionals, who assess your needs and leave you to ponder over the choice of the wide range of experiences available. Our Spa director – Pedro Catarino leads the multicultural team comprising of masseuses, beauticians, receptionists, and a Yoga and meditation instructor. Pedro shares his years of experience with us, as he sets sights on providing better experiences for our guests. He has been an instrumental figure in the vital changes that were implemented into the current Spa concept.

Recreating the Spa concept was an intricate yet thoughtful process thanks to the unison of ideas developed by the professional team behind this much anticipated facelift. Professional consultancy was also provided by a renowned Spa consultant, whose contributions included a new Spa menu, due to be launched this month, and enhancing the service levels of the Spa team a few notches higher through means of rigorous training.

New signature rituals feature their way into the Spa Menu, now a comprehensive list of authentic therapies ranging from the ancient art of Ayurveda to the pacifying effects conveyed by the preserved secrets of Balinese therapies.

A whole new addition to the Spa is the YonKa skin care line; an all-natural product range with its roots stemming from Paris, France. YonKa is a well-established brand renowned as pioneers in aromatherapy and phytotherapy. Presently, they boast a meticulous selection of Spas around the globe, with a history of delivering aesthetic treatments for over 60 years. Aligning well with our own slogan, “Naturally Maldives”, these products are not only effective in conveying health and beauty, but are also purely organic, providing a surreal experience to the guests who chose these inspired programs.

The partnership of YonKa and Kuramathi has resulted in many new treatment options available for our guests. With over 5 skin care programs suited for both him and her, along with the addition of revitalising body care therapies, and signature rituals, the present Kuramathi Spa promises to be a personal doorway to achieve a sense of sereneness and spirituality. Spa Pedicures and Manicure treatments are now redefined and complemented with original products as well, with Bella Lucce and Zoya, well-known for containing carbon neutral elements free from harmful chemicals.

Meditation is also introduced along with Yoga classes, set to bring balance to the mind, body and soul. The classes are conducted by a professional yoga / meditation instructor and are available in both private and group sessions at very reasonable prices.

The General Manager, Latheef shares his thoughts and says that “The new Kuramathi Spa is an idea conceived after deciding to bring forth a professional touch to the Spa experience and product range, to meet the expectations of the guests. Kuramathi has continued to develop and improve itself since its revamp in 2009, and this year it is the Spa’s turn, our guests expect and deserve an equivalent experience at Kuramathi Spa.”
