Lily Beach Resort & Tamara Spa by Mandara Hosts a Remarkable Global Wellness Day Together

Lily Beach Wellness Day
Lily Beach Resort partnered up with Tamara Spa by Mandara to offer a special wellness program for its guests on Global Wellness Day.

Waves rhythmically ebbing and flowing against the shore. A bird chirping softly from a palm tree. The colours, sounds, and breeze on the tropical island help ground you– Island life at Lily Beach provides the perfect setting for a moment of meditation and relaxation.

June 12 was Global Wellness Day, a dedicated day meant to highlight wellness as a sustainable lifestyle. A slightly broad concept, Global Wellness Day (GWD) defines ‘wellness’ as an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. This desire to improve ourselves is a shared lived experience among all humans and directly affects our quality of life, the organisation states.

As wellness is personal development, GWD is all about slowly changing habits one at a time to make an overall healthier life. Several activities are highlighted to cover different aspects of life, like walking for an hour, drinking more water, avoiding plastic water bottles, doing a good deed for someone, sharing dinner with a loved one, and going to sleep early.

Lily Beach Resort & Spa understands the importance of a balanced, positive, and proactive lifestyle and wants to celebrate Global Wellness Day and share it with others. To spread awareness and encourage others to highlight the date on their calendars, Lily Beach hosted a social media countdown the week before Global Wellness Day. Each day came accompanied by a new post that highlighted the resort’s unique wellness aspect: mindfulness, healthy eating, relaxation, adventure, and activities.

On June 12, Lily Beach partnered up with Tamara Spa by Mandara to offer a special wellness program for its guests– a day of activities to promote a healthier life for better physical and mental wellbeing. The event started with sunrise yoga, led by expert yoga instructor Maja. Afterwards, healthy drinks and snacks were shared, which included homemade granola, coconut slices, fruit skewers, and freshly squeezed juices.

During this time, a photo frame and pink handheld “I Say Yes!” signs (the trademark of Global Wellness Day) were available for pictures. Later in the afternoon, Tamara Spa hosted head, neck, shoulder, and foot massage classes, followed by a Bazaar to showcase new promotions and merchandise. During this time, ginger tea and pink lemonade were enjoyed by all. The GWD programme came to a close at sunset with a session of yin yoga on the beach.

Though the day’s activities came to an end, wellness activities at Lily Beach did not. Wellness is something that happens year-round, not just on holidays. Tamara Spa and the yoga instructor are available for bookings; activities can be found at each area of the island; luxurious healthy food options are fresh and waiting to be devoured, and adventure is there for those that seek it.
Lily Beach Resort & Spa is a luxury 5-star resort set in the natural beauty of the Maldives.

Located on Huvahendhoo Island in the South Ari Atoll, Lily Beach is a short 25-minute flight by seaplane from the capital Malé and Velana International Airport. This proximity, as well as the reputation of its legendary all-inclusive plan, make it a sought-after destination.

An encompassing Platinum plan, diverse and healthy food options, a variety of leisure and sporting activities, and world-class yoga and spa availabilities create the perfect resort for couples and families alike to “say yes” to wellness. “One day can change your whole life,” and this is especially true at Lily Beach Resort & Spa.

The Nautilus Maldives Announces Ananda Wellness Residency

The Nautilus will host two senior practitioners from the world’s most renowned holistic wellness retreat. From 16th to 26th August 2023, Ananda in the Himalayas will be at The Nautilus. Combining Ananda’s specialist Ayurvedic knowledge with The Nautilus’s timeless hospitality offering, this residency will provide the ultimate restorative wellness experience.

Exploring the Restorative Wellness Experiences

The Nautilus tailors holidays to individual needs, providing a completely bespoke experience renowned for its customization. Additionally, the resort also provides unscripted and timeless offerings to its travellers. With this, the Ananda treatments will be available to guests at any time of day. The treatment will be provided in the overwater Solasta Spa’s glass-floored private treatment pavilions. Interested guests can also explore the treatments in the comfort of guest houses and residences.

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.
