“The Spa & Ayurvedic Retreat mirrors the philosophy of the island of Landaa Giraavaru – a breathtaking setting for extraordinary and innovative experiences tailored to each individual. We are so proud of our team’s tireless efforts to deliver a combination of therapies, treatments and activities that engage guests at a holistic level and really showcase the wellness world’s multiple faces of health and beauty, tradition and innovation,” said Armando Kraenzlin , the resort’s general manager and regional vice president , upon receiving the award.

The Spa & Ayurvedic Retreat combines western medical application with ancient Asian sciences in a therapeutic setting: a three-acre (1.2 hectare) complex stretching from lagoon to jungle.

Two Ayurvedic doctors lend valuable knowledge and support – all wrapped in Four Seasons nurturing care,” reads the company’s press statement.

“In the Spa’s drive to set the wellness industry benchmark, recent additions include: a jungle Yoga Energy Trail (15 nature-inspired stations); VIP visiting-master program (including gurus such as Ivana Daniell); online Ayurvedic Pharmacy (featuring many exclusive/local ingredients); a jungle Night Spa showcasing an open-air Om Supti sleep ritual; AntiGravity Yoga and physiotherapy.”

The Spa & Ayurvedic Retreat was also recently named Destination Retreat of the Year at the AsiaSpa Awards 2015, which sets the benchmark for quality and innovation for spas in the region.
