Harnessing all her knowledge and experience, Yasmin is inviting guests to unplug and reset at Vakkaru Maldives. “I want you to know that you can work out anytime, anywhere! I will also be joining forces with the culinary team at Vakkaru Maldives to curate my ultimate breakfast table every morning, spend an afternoon sharing my hacks on the best travel-friendly snacks and smoothie concoctions as meal replacements and share some of my well-kept secret recipes for desserts. At my masterclass, I want you to understand that the food you eat must not be a tedious diet that you have picked out of a magazine, but a variable routine that you look forward to each morning,” says Yasmin Karachiwala.

Commenting on the residency, Nicholas Mason, the general manager of Vakkaru Maldives says, “Nestled within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll in the Maldives, Vakkaru Maldives is the perfect setting to bask in the ultimate luxury of ‘time’ and ‘space’ where guests are invited to relax, reflect and refocus. We recognise that our guests are on a lifelong, personal and emotional quest towards a fulfilling health and wellness goal and we are dedicated to ensuring they have access to the best.”

Vakkaru Maldives is a scenic 30 minutes north of Velana International Airport by seaplane. Blessed with timeless ocean views and nurtured by nature, the resort boasts 125 villas and suites, six dining options and an extensive leisure facility. For more information, visit
