Close your eyes.
Picture yourself on a pristine, powder-sand beach. Your feet sinking at the perfectly white sand. Ahead of you, there is a turquoise-water beach. Small waves crushing at the shore. Next to you, there is yours and your other half's sunbeds. Your other half is already sited, but you prefer to take your time to bask on this beautiful view - it's once in a lifetime, after all. Your vacations in the Maldives have just begun.
You are actually at Fesdu Island at North Ari Atoll, a quite popular island in the Maldives that hosts the legendary W Maldives. It was only a few minutes ago that you are welcomed by the hotel's staff to the island. After your quick check-in, which seemed like ages, you were guide to your room. Bold, Unscripted, Luxury. The three words that caught your attention and booked at this place were finally unfolding before you.
W Maldives - Beach vs Over-water Oasis
Almost had forgotten that you had booked the beachfront oasis. A truly magnificent room with a gorgeous design that red color leads the show, and a lovely wooden deck with a private pool and sun beds to relax during the day. Of course, the room's main advantage is its direct access to the beach, making morning dives after waking up part of the routine.
Although, you find yourself kinda regretting for not choosing the over-water oasis. Even from afar, these rooms perched above the lagoon are magnificent. And their facilities do not lack at all. Also featuring an outdoor terrace with sunbeds and a private pool to relax, and direct access to the water. You kind of wonder why you didn't book half days on each room.
Well, now that you settled down, you can enjoy your complimentary drink on the beach, but don't forget: you have booked a massage in two hours at Away Spa.
Away Spa - Getting pampered with a series of luxurious treatments!
The best way to remove fatigue, release all that built-up stress, and cast away the tension so as to enjoy your holidays in the Maldives - a Hot Stone Massage. It's almost like a ritual to you. Getting a massage at the beginning of your vacations, and you are so happy that you decided to do that in the Maldives as well. 90 Minutes of perfect relaxation. 90 minutes just for you and your body.
Of course, this is not the only treatment that you will enjoy at Away Spa during your vacations in the Maldives. You have already booked a facial for the next day, more particularly the organic facial that uses traditional Maldivian Facial techniques with natural products. As well as an Away Detox package for one day before you leave, during which you will devote three entire hours to your well-being, enjoying a detox massage, a detox body, a detox facial, and delicious wellness cuisine.
Well, I think it's about time we left you enjoy your detox drink before your massage, and we will talk later at the dinner.
