Veli Spa at Kurumba Maldives partners with luxury French brand Thémaé to offer ‘tea-inspired’ treatments

themae - CopyKurumba Maldives’ award-winning Veli Spa has announced a new partnership with luxury French spa brand Thémaé. The introduction of Thémaé products to Veli Spa will see a host of new treatments on offer, as well as a variety of new retail products.

The Thémaé brand, named after the Japanese tea preparation ceremony, utilizes the acclaimed benefits of tea in its services and products and is inspired by the art of tea. Already present in numerous luxury spas across four continents, the products are also inspired by the ‘beauty and pleasure’ of Paris.

The tea plant, Thémaé explains, has over 30% of polyphenols (one of the highest levels of antioxidant concentration known) and contains antioxidants 200 times more potent than Vitamin E. Thus tea actively contributes to slowing the skin’s signs of aging by neutralizing the free radicals that breaks down collagen and elastin. Their product range, which includes treatments for both body and face, work on the basis of an original two-pronged approach to combine truly effective treatments with complete well-being.

Aishath Zulfishan, Kurumba Maldives’ Spa Manager expressed her delight at the new partnership, saying, “We are pleased and excited to partner with Thémaé, the exclusive French product line with high quality treatments. The brand also allows us to complement the offerings in our spa menu that already feature indoor and outdoor treatments, as well as our unique range of Maldivian treatments which incorporates Dhivehi Beys, the traditional Maldivian herbal medicine that has been handed down from generation to generation. Thémaé is unique, like our guests.”

In addition, the spa has designed a unique Shimmer Ritual, which includes an exfoliation and facial, designed to prepare a guest for a special night out.
