MATATO To Take Part In MATKA Nordic Travel Fair 2016
MATKA Nordic Travel Fair is the largest travel industry event in Northern Europe and this year. MATATO Joins this year

MATKA Nordic Travel Fair is the largest travel industry event in Northern Europe and this year, Maldives Association of Travel Agents and Tour Operators (MATATO) will be participating. The event will be held between 19th and 22nd January 2017, in Messukeskus Helsinki, Finland.

MATKA Nordic Travel Fair plays host to an outstanding platform for travel industries to learn about new products in the market, network with other members of the industry as well as connect with the suppliers. MATKA is in league with the constantly evolving travel trade in order to administer the best platform for the industry to grow. They aim to offer an exclusive chance to meet the decision makers of the travel industry and consumers with purchase power in an inspiring setting.

As part of their efforts to provide affordable and productive marketing opportunities for the Maldivian travel industry in the international market, MATKA gives us the accessibility to the world’s third largest outbound travel market.

Though sparsely populated, Nordic countries play an extensive role in the market for outbound travel. Nordic travelers are big spenders and spend up to USD 20 billion on travel each year. Despite the few 25 million inhabitants, this region currently has the highest travel spending per capita in the world, surpassing spending rates in countries like Germany and England.

With high spending power, frequent travel is facilitated for the Nordic travelers. It’s rare for guests of other countries to travel abroad as often as Nordic tourists; they journey outside Europe seeking leisure and culture regularly. 

MATATO invites interested hoteliers and travel agents to exhibit their hotels at MATKA 2017. In order to have a significant presence of destination Maldives and to make room for opportunities at the exhibition. The registration deadline is set for 10th December 2016.

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.
