Eco-Conscious Adventure

As part of Amilla Maldives Resort and Residence’s drive towards becoming even more sustainable‚ its famous Javvu Spa has launched a range of homemade soaps‚ scrubs and facials. They include fresh ingredients grown right there on the island such as coconut oil and aloe vera‚ therapeutic herbs such as neem and aromatic flowers including jasmine‚ wild marigolds and hibiscus.

Now Amilla guests can also get hands on with the ingredients if they wish to‚ with a class at Amilla’s ‘Alchemy Bar’ demonstrating how they can use these heavenly combinations of herbs and oils to make their own beauty products, such as soap and shampoo bar, lip balm, deodorant and more. The instructor will lead a fun and informative session which will teach them about the benefits of the natural ingredients and instruct them on how to combine them into a heavenly mix of their own. The guests can then take them back to enjoy them in their private Villa or Residence‚ or when they return home – a little reminder of paradise.

Today, the Amilla Islanders are busy creating new organic gardens and a banana plantation‚ amongst other things‚ in an effort to increase the amount of ingredients produced in-house for the kitchens‚ bars and spa‚ under the Homegrown@Amilla programme. This helps lower the resort’s carbon footprint by reducing the amount of produce shipped in from outside of the island‚ which is located in Baa Atoll.

Discover the Secrets of Maldivian ‘Dhivehi Beys’ at Amilla’s Javvu Spa

Dhivehi Beys experience

As Amilla Maldives continues to keep the health and wellbeing of guests, the resort’s Javvu Spa has decided to divulge some of the healing secrets of Maldivian traditional medicine, known as ‘Dhivehi Beys’.

These natural remedies and healing traditions have been developed over the centuries; passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation. Nowadays, only few traditional healers remain in the Maldives. However, Dhivehi Beys treatments are still popular amongst the local population and many Maldivians would travel far for treatments.

In line with the resort’s Homemade@Amilla and Homegrown@Amilla sustainability and wellness programmes, this exciting new wellness project utilises indigenous Maldivian spices and herbs grown in Amilla’s organic gardens such as ‘thamburu’, ‘fonithoshi’ and ‘karanfoo’ to help create deeply restorative and healing treatments.
