Indulgent day spa experiences
Relax and rejuvenate your mind and body at one of the Maldives’ finest day spas. The exclusive Anantara Spa features a range of indigenous-inspired treatments and wellness rituals.

Over 200 luxurious minutes you’re pampered with a floral foot ritual, white coconut scrub, coconut essence wrap and muscle-tension release massage. The spa also features a custom-built overwater relaxation deck, steam room and sauna, indoor and outdoor showers, jacuzzi and plunge pool.
Wet and wild water sports
The resort’s Aquafanatics Water Sports Centre offers everything from the adrenalin pumping to the cool, calm and collected. Take to the skies on a parasailing adventure and get a beautiful bird’s-eye view of lagoons, coral reefs and famous white sandy beaches. Slice through the turquoise waters on a high-speed windsurfer, surf some of the most famous waves in the world, or get your heart pumping on a speedboat or waterski trip.
If taking it easy is more your style, there are plenty of options too. Take a relaxing paddle in a kayak, snorkel around the reefs, or take out a private boat (complete with your own Captain) and explore the region’s hidden lagoons and secret beaches.
