Between September 2023 and January 2024, Amilla Maldives will welcome four spa practitioners for a series of on-island residencies, bringing internationally renowned treatments and techniques to resort guests.
Claire O’Sullivan, Paul Emery, Ashish Tripathi, and Katrina Valente will each offer their distinctive specialities to Amilla’s guests in the thoughtfully curated wellness series encompassing holistic therapies, natural medicine, mind-body treatments, and anti-ageing facials. The perfect host to the four-part programme, Amilla’s Javvu Spa offers a tranquil jungle sanctuary a stone’s throw away from the crystal clear water and white sandy beach of the resort.
Taking residence from 7th–18th September, renowned naturopath and wellness coach Claire O’Sullivan will lead Amilla’s inaugural Pause Retreat – the Maldives’ first-ever perimenopause- and menopause-focused wellbeing retreat.
The series of personalised four-day well-being journeys explore natural ways to boost female hormones while educating and empowering women to adapt to this natural biological process through intuitive movement, nutrition, and mindful activities. Five-night Pause Retreat packages start from USD 5,915++ (approx. GBP4,709++) per person, including accommodation, full board, and all inclusions of the comprehensive retreat programme.
From 5th October – 5th November 2023, the second visiting practitioner at Amilla will be Paul Emery, who incorporates techniques and practices from nutrition, exercise, and mindfulness into his neuroscience touch-based mind-body treatments. Paul is a trusted name in holistic health and wellness, following 20 years of experience worldwide and 35 years of research and training with prominent doctors, neuroscientists and therapists.
“The Peaceful Mind Solution” (USD300++ / 80 mins) is Paul’s signature treatment. It is offered alongside “The Restful Sleep Programme”, “The Healthy Weight Journey”, and “The Vitality Restoration Programme” (all USD300++ / 50 to 80mins) and “The Inner Harmony Meditation Experience” (USD250++ / 50mins).
The third practitioner will be Ashish Tripathi, who will bring his 14 years of experience in natural medicine to Amilla from 10th November – 15th December 2023. A registered naturopath and acupuncturist, Ashish promotes relaxation and enhances overall well-being through treatments tailored to individual needs following an Ayurvedic consultation. Ashish’s treatments include “Five Element Acupuncture” (USD225++ / 45mins), Yogic Detox (USD300++ / 120 mins), and Royal Indian Head Massage (USD200++ / 60mins).
Finally, Katrina Valente will be the last practitioner to wrap up the programme from 19th December 2023 – 19th January 2024. Katrina specialises in facials and integrates methods using frequency techniques, deep tissue, and regression therapy. Guests of Amilla can expect an array of facials, including Radio-Frequency Ultra Firming Facial (USD410++ / 75mins), Deep Tissue Facial Massage (USD330++ / 60mins), and DMK Facelift (USD440++ / 75mins).
Javvu Spa’s contemporary and holistic approach to wellness offers guests a harmonious combination of Eastern and Western therapies, a perfect complement to the upcoming restorative programme.
