The Talise spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli has been named Best Luxury Wellness Spa in Maldives by the World Travel Awards in 2015, 2016, and 2017. Treatments at the spa are inspired by concepts of light and space connecting with the purity and vibration of ingredients. The team produces their own island made 100% pure coconut oil, which is used in treatments and available as a take-home souvenir. The garden and overwater treatment rooms provide romantic spaces for couples who wish to enjoy blissful relaxation, while the spa menu also includes dedicated Mother-Daughter and Father-Son pampering sessions.
Romantic offerings are an essential part of many experiences at the resort – with the Maldives seeing a large part of their travellers come for honeymoon or anniversary celebrations. At Jumeirah Vittaveli, couples may consult a dedicated wedding proposal butler to create a tailor-made proposal, and can enjoy such romantic experiences as a candle-lit Aqua Dinner set-up in the shallow area of the pool, beachside BBQs, or sandbank picnics, in addition to designated romantic rituals at the Talise Spa. The Ocean Suites offer the ultimate in privacy for couples looking for an exclusive romantic hideaway, as the villas are built in the midst of the lagoon and only accessible by 24 hour boat service.
