Amilla Maldives Introduces its New Feathered Friends!

Cluckingham Palace at amilla maldives
It may be nothing new to see stylish ladies arriving at Amilla Maldives but there's certainly something unique about these 'Islanders'.

Easter week saw 59 ‘hot chicks’ arriving at Amilla Fushi Maldives Resort and Residences and taking up residence at the island’s newest abode – Cluckingham Palace. They have been joined at their residence by one lucky fellow named ‘Cluck Norris’.

It may be nothing new to see stylish ladies arriving at Amilla Fushi but there’s certainly something unique about these ‘Islanders’. Measuring about 27 inches tall and decked head to tail in glossy feathers, these girls are a truly egg-citing addition to the island.

We’re talking about the 59 hens and one rooster that have arrived at Amilla Fushi just in time for Easter, of course. The resort temporarily closed to guests last month due to the coronavirus pandemic, but a team of Amilla Islanders including General Manager, Jason Kruse, and Sustainability Manager, Victoria Kruse, have stayed on the island in order to work on a host of new projects – including Cluckingham Palace. The Islanders – who are safely quarantined from the outside world celebrated their new arrival with bubbles and beer.

The new chicken residence is fit for royalty. It is tucked away on a secluded part of the island, surrounded by lush tropical foliage which helps to keep the area shaded and cool for the feathered friends. The chickens are now settling in, and when guests return to the island after its grand reopening on 1st July, will help provide the freshest of eggs to Amilla’s renowned kitchens.

Cluckingham Palace project is part of Amilla Maldives’ Homemade@Amilla and Homegrown@Amilla concepts, which involve growing and making fresh food right there on the island. The fresh eggs are also a tasty addition to Amilla’s paleo, keto, and low-lectin ‘Wellness Your Way’ dishes. The host of specialty dishes have been added to the main menus in order to cater to the dietary demands of today’s guests. Amilla is the first resort in the Maldives to pioneer a comprehensive array of ‘eating lifestyle’ dishes.

The two practitioners, Mr Sandeep Dhamada and Ms Krishna Karki, are some of Ananda’s most accomplished and expert holistic therapists. As a follow-up to these speciality treatments, The Nautilus guests will also benefit from an online consultation with an Ayurvedic physician. This will further enhance the holistic benefits of the treatments in addition to the overall experience. Ananda’s gourmet Ayurvedic cuisine is available to consume anywhere on the island, incorporating anti-inflammatory properties, with fundamental food tastes carefully combined with macronutrients.

Ananda in the Himalayas is one of the world’s leading luxury wellness retreats, aligning with the rejuvenating spirit of The Nautilus. Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, the birthplace of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation, Ananda integrates these ancient practices with therapy. The partnership first launched in 2022 and this year’s iteration enhances the already extensive wellness offering with a series of curated experiences for guests looking to rebalance their body, soul and mind.

Specialty Treatments Offered by Ananda at The Nautilus:

  • Ananda Touch with Reflexology (90 Mins)- A rhythmic flowing massage with rose-scented oils. The treatment releases tension and stress combined with the stimulation of reflex points. This practice aims to restore energy flow throughout the entire body and foster balance within the body and mind.
  • Indian Head Massage with Reflexology (90 Mins)– This ancient experience relaxes, tones, and eases muscle tension. It also aids in eliminating toxins by stimulating circulation. Following this, a massage is administered to the feet, applying pressure on the soles to restore healthy energy flow throughout the body.
  • Indian Head Massage with Shiatsu (90 Mins)– A traditional massage which provides deep relaxation. Following this, Shiatsu is applied. This is a full body pressure point experience that enhances circulation and boosts the immune system.
  • Himalayan Honey and Rose Facial with Foot Massage (90 mins)– This stimulating and refreshing facial uses a blend of sandalwood and rose essential oils. We massage pure organic honey harvested from the Himalayas into the skin and apply a mask of cooling cucumber. As the mask hydrates your skin, indulge in a soothing foot massage that stimulates reflex points.
  • Ananda Moksha (90 Mins)– A full body massage which uses traditional Ayurvedic therapeutic techniques. The holistic therapy draws inspiration from the concept of Moksha, signifying a liberation of the senses and a release for the free flow of Prana or energy.
