InterContinental Maldives Introduces Wellness Journeys

InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort has designed wellness journeys that evolve around visiting wellness practitioners from December 2022 to April 2023. During this time, seven different wellness journeys will be available at the island resort. From ‘De-Stress’ and mindful ‘Sleep Well’ journeys, ‘Detox’ and ‘Metabolism Booster’ programmes, to muscle relaxing ‘Sports Athletes’ programme, a range of programmes will be available to choose from.

Joao Santos and Rajeshwari Amol Nerukar will be on the island from December 2022 till early 2023, extending their practices to the resort guests. Joao focuses on body treatments like Dry Massages. He will also treat guests who choose the ‘Metabolism Booster’ or ‘Sports Athletes’ programmes. Rajeshwari focuses on healing and bases her treatments on finding calm and peace within, healing emotional trauma and distress. Through a combination of yoga, Ayurveda, sound healing and breathwork, her wellness journeys focus on de-stress and better sleep.  Joao and Rajeshwari will take guests on the wellness journeys along with the resident Fitness Trainer Rohit Vijay Tandel.

“A wellness journey is perceived differently by each individual and while we, the wellness practitioners, can give suggestions and guidance, every guest needs to have the space to find their way to mindfulness and wellbeing. Here at Maamunagau’s AVI Spa, we love to incorporate crystal and sound bowl healing in our treatments. This is of course not for everyone, but I love to introduce my guests to those alternative wellness techniques and be part of their journey to explore their bodies and mind. I am very excited to bring all our synergies together to curate unforgettable and beneficial wellness journeys for our guests and to accompany them on their path to wellness,” said Sunitha Narayana, resident yoga, reiki master and wellness guru at Maamunagau.

For guests who wish to start the new year refreshed, the AVI Spa team has also created a ‘Anti-Ageing’ programme. This programme will be available throughout the year and can be customised to the requirements of each guest.
