SPA-TASTIC: Secrets of the Sea at The Night Spa, Maldives

Secrets of the Sea at The Night Spa, Maldives

When it comes to indulgent spa treatments, it doesn’t get much more spectacular than The Secrets of the Sea at The Night Spa, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa. This open-air ritual is available to one individual (or couple) each night channeling the calming and therapeutic effects of the ocean for the ultimate in five-star luxury.

Located on its own private island, The Island Spa—one of the hotel’s many amenities—is a sea sanctuary. Each over-water treatment pavilion features a glass floor so guests can view the teeming reef life below. The treatments—which include The Sea of Life and Tides of Time facials—use only the purest OSEA marine products. However, it’s not until the spa closes at 10:00pm that the Secrets of the Sea experience begins.

Night Spa guests are escorted from their villa to the spa jetty where a gentle kuda dhoni (little boat) takes them a minute’s journey across the starlit lagoon to the candle-lit island—their exclusive oasis for the evening.

The 150-minute Secrets of the Sea ritual focuses on the vagus nerve—the master of the body’s inner nerve center, memory-making and relaxation. Its sequence of therapies flows from a warming wrap with Bach Flower Essences and Vagus Nerve Oil to a relaxing Gigartina Beauty Bath with fresh seaweed, a Kuda Huraa Healing Waters Massage (performed on cushions of warm water), and a Vagus Facial. With muscles melted and spirits floating, it’s an invitation to attune to the heartbeat of the ocean, an energy that stills the mind, balances the emotions, and fills the heart with a silent joy.
