Talise Spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli connects with culture

Published

on

Maldives Promotion House – Talise Spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli, the luxurious Maldivian resort catering for couples, families and small groups, recently launched two new signature treatments that celebrate elements of local Maldivian culture.

The “Island of Life” is a 90-minute treatment inspired by the gentle movement of the ocean. The treatment combines long soothing strokes with deep pressure mirroring the ocean waves breaking. Using a blend of rose, ylang-ylang, geranium and sandalwood essential oils infused with locally-produced extra virgin coconut oil, the treatment has been designed to leave guests relaxed and rejuvenated.

The virgin coconut oil that forms the base for the essential oils is produced with handpicked coconuts grown on the Maldivian island of Kelaa. Zacoom Holdings, a small enterprise led by a group of local women, produces this valuable product on demand and is responsible for the cultivation, the picking, the grating, the production and delivery of the oil.

The “Boli Malaafath Neshun” is a 75-minute treatment and derives its traditional name from a local dance, still regarded as the most important dance performed by Maldivian women. Inspired by the ancient tradition of offering shells as gifts to the Sultan, the treatment is performed by four hands, with two therapists simultaneously massaging the body in a synchronised dance-like movement.

Jumeirah Vittaveli is keen to promote culturally connected activities for all our visitors,” said Gisele Clark, General Manager of Jumeirah Vittaveli. “The resort showcases local cuisine with our Maldivian cooking classes; while excursions are tailor-made to emphasise the natural beauty of the landscape and include snorkelling, sandbank picnics, fishing, and sunset cruises. We are now thrilled to add signature spa treatments to our offering, allowing guests to connect more with the local culture”.

The Talise Spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli has a total of nine treatment villas, all suitable for individual or couple’s treatments. Five of the villas are nestled in the lush gardens of the island, three spacious villas are over water while the luxurious Spa Ocean Suite offers panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

Ifuru Island Maldives has announced an unforgettable workshop with Australian artist Anna Lohe, where she will explain how she created “Ifuru Magic”, Ifuru’s signature artwork found throughout the resort. Anna will also be your painting coach, for you to create your own masterpiece during her 2 hours masterclass on 10 July 2024 at Ifuru Island Maldives. The masterclass is priced at $50++ per person including materials.

Anna Lohe is an Australian abstract artist based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia (Garigal Land). She paints vibrant, imaginative works in acrylic on canvas featuring botanical, spiritual and native forest themes using colour palettes to suit contemporary homes.

She thrives by surrounding herself with colour and takes inspiration from the natural world. Most of Anna’s works are born from her passions of yoga, travel, friendships, and family. As a mum of two kids, Anna was born in Melbourne Australia and has worked in London as part of her 25-year career in advertising and marketing.

“I am so excited to see Ifuru resort in real life, as when I painted the signature artwork – the resort was not yet opened. I’ve loved following progress on Instagram but to be able to experience it with my family will be magic. The masterclass to inspire guests to paint, will be a highlight,” says Anna.

Anna is the talented artist responsible for the iconic “IFURU magic” art piece showcased in the suites and villas on Ifuru Island in the Maldives. Featuring local birds, flowers, fish, coral, and the famous Barbie pink lifeguard tower, the artwork beautifully encapsulates the island’s enchanting and distinctive charm.
