1. Anan­tara Veli Mal­dives Re­sort

Although the en­tire Ar­chi­pel­ago of the Mal­dives is decked with a world of lux­ury hide­outs, there is some­thing about the Anan­tara Veli’s serene at­mos­phere that in­stantly drifts you away from the stresses of mod­ern life. The three to seven-day Ayurvedic pro­grammes are ideal for those look­ing to detox the mind and body while shap­ing up for their big day. The well­ness hol­i­day will not only meet all your lux­ury crav­ings, but en­ve­lope you in nat­u­ral bliss to pre­pare you for the jour­ney ahead. While the most com­mon Ayurvedic treat­ments like Abayanga, pin­dasweda will elim­i­nate tox­ins from your body and treat you with the nour­ish­ing herbal good­ness, the Neem body treat­ment will cleanse and pu­rify your skin for a dewy, translu­cent glow. Yoga ses­sions in the serene am­bi­ence of the re­sort paired with TRX and fit­ness ex­er­cises en­sure a re­laxed and happy va­ca­tion. Anan­tara Veli is lo­cated in the South Male Atoll, 35 min­utes away from Malé. For more in­for­ma­tion, call +960 664-4100

2. Six Senses Ka­plankaya, Ak­bük

On a se­cluded, Aegean-span­ning stretch of coast, north of Bo­drum, Six Senses Ka­plankaya is a les­son in the art of get­ting away from it all. As is typ­i­cal for this ho­tel group, a far-flung, iso­lated, at-one-with­na­ture set­ting is cus­tom­ary, but this one has an added bonus – it's on top of gor­geous olive groves, tow­er­ing cy­press trees and

bloom­ing ole­an­der with two an­cient won­ders of the world nearby. The well­ness pro­grammes are spec­tac­u­lar and sure to cure any woe, whether it’s sleep­less­ness or saggy skin. But it’s the Earth Lab that will re­ally make a dif­fer­ence. Guests are en­cour­aged to con­nect with their sur­round­ings and learn some valu­able life hacks while they’re at it. There are per­sonal train­ers, yoga and pi­lates in­struc­tors, a mud cham­ber, ham­mam, salt grotto and some in­trigu­ingly named ‘ex­pe­ri­en­tial rain’ ex­pe­ri­ences that add to the beauty and well­ness fix. Six Senses Ka­plankaya is set in the north of Bo­drum in Mi­las. Pick your jour­ney from the air­port by car, yacht or he­li­copter that takes 50, 30 or 10 min­utes re­spec­tively. For more in­for­ma­tion, call +90 252 511 00 30.
