Prestige (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

the SAND IS be­tween your toes and the Mal­di­vian sun is on your back, but the busy city life you thought you left be­hind when your boarded the plane is ham­per­ing you from en­ter­ing a hol­i­day mood. But five-star bou­tique re­sort Mi­laid­hoo Is­land Mal­dives has just the thing to get you there: an in­no­va­tive “mood din­ing” con­cept.

If the scenic 30-min sea­plane ride from the air­port or check­ing into your spa­cious over­wa­ter or beach villa don’t perk up your spir­its, check out th­ese spe­cial din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences: Get­ting into the Mi­laid­hoo Mood, Deep Sleep, Sun­rise Awak­en­ing, Cu­ri­ous Ad­ven­tures and Sun­set Chill. Each in­cludes menus cu­rated to pos­i­tively im­prove body chem­istry and mood, and is paired with ac­tiv­i­ties that en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ease your­self into a hol­i­day state of mind with Get­ting into the Mi­laid­hoo Mood. It be­gins with a peace­ful 60-min spa ses­sion at the Seren­ity Spa. Fol­low­ing that, a sa­ti­at­ing meal rich in vi­ta­mins, omega-3 and nu­tri­ents — en­joyed in any spot of your choice — puts you firmly in is­land mode to savour the “bare­foot lux­ury” re­sort’s idyl­lic charm and ex­hil­a­rat­ing wa­ter sports.

Racked up a huge sleep deficit re­cently? Deep Sleep re­sets you phys­i­cally and men­tally for sweet slum­ber. It starts with a re­lax­ing spa treat­ment in the early evening. A light din­ner in your villa fea­tures in­gre­di­ents that con­tain nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring sub­stances to en­cour­age sleepi­ness. A pri­vate med­i­ta­tion ses­sion led by the re­sort’s res­i­dent yogi on the open moon­lit deck fur­ther calms the mind, fol­lowed by a warm scented can­dle­light bath that trig­gers drowsi­ness as the body cools down.

For an ex­tra boost of en­ergy in the morn­ing, opt for Sun­rise Awak­en­ing. Tuck into breakfast on the pri­vate deck of your villa or the beach. Ex­po­sure to sun­light pro­duces sero­tonin, the “hap­pi­ness hor­mone” that also helps you feel calm and fo­cused — and ready for some se­ri­ous re­lax­ation.

Let your Is­land Host take care of your ev­ery need as you lux­u­ri­ate in your thatched-roof villa, which opens up 180 de­grees to your pri­vate deck and pool, the beach or the sea be­yond.

Mi­laid­hoo is the only re­sort in Baa Atoll, a UN­ESCO Bio­sphere Re­serve with sur­round­ing co­ral reefs to make for per­fect snorkelling and div­ing ad­ven­tures. Three world-class restau­rants, well­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and is­land es­capades at ev­ery turn prom­ise im­mer­sive va­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ences to re­mem­ber.
