Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa introduces 2,000 year old Tibetan wellness ritual

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, with its eye on health and wellness this year, introduces singing bowl meditation to its wellness offering. The Tibetan tradition – thought to date back to between 480 and 560 BC – offers the chance to reduce stress and anxiety, and increase mental clarity.

Singing bowls produce sounds that invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation. The practice is designed to rebalance the body and reduce stress. At Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, the 60-minute sessions are administered by the experienced spa manager at the five-star property, and are limited to a maximum of two persons to ensure the session is personalized to the individual.

The origins of the singing Tibetan bowls are as mysterious as the otherworldly harmonies the bowls produce. The ancient tradition has been heralded over the centuries for relieving stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, aiding pain relief, Chakra balancing, increasing mental and emotional clarity and promoting happiness. Today, singing bowls are used to aid meditation, religious practice, relaxation and healthcare.

Singing bowl meditation is one of many activities on offer at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa including yoga classes, scuba diving, snorkelling, private blind dining experiences, Maldivian family feasts, excursions and various spa treatments in the resort’s Vidhun Spa. The multi eco-award winning Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is a private island tucked away in the center of Huvadhoo Atoll.
