The Over-Water AWAY® Spa At W Maldives

W Maldives 6 (1)

What’s a vacation without visiting the spa? I have a few photos to show and will run through the treatments we did – nothing too heavy in this post, please enjoy the pictures, TGIF.

AWAY® Spa at W Maldives is tucked away on the other side of the island. Usually quite quiet during the day, not as crowded as the main beach – but speedboats and seaplanes do come pretty close, be careful if you are having a shower outdoor (naked) but again, we are in Maldives, it doesn’t really matter ey?

Snorkeling around the spa is also fantastic, you will see lots of blue and colourful fishes and corals along the coast.

 Our treatments started with a steam bath, foot bath and scrub.

I had Swedish a natural oil massage, gliding strokes for treating muscles, teasing tendons, slipping knots. The friction improves the circulation, melting away the tension, perfect relaxation. My therapist is Nana.

Mak had Shiatsubased on the ancient Japanese practice of unblocking and balancing energy. A blend of pressure and stretching techniques highly stimulates, heals and restores balance. You can choose deep or moderate pressure. Mak’s therapist is Yani.

We ended out treatments with a hot chocolate bath by the open ocean.
