Ayada Maldives’ 3500 sqm AySpa has been designed to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. The spa showcases terrazzo floors with marble and timber hues to reinforce an indigenous feel to your spa experience. Maldives’ first vichy shower room and private Turkish Hammam including an elaborate marble plinth.

AySpa at the resort, which is nestled within the island's vegetation, draws inspiration from its natural surroundings and Ayada Maldives' Turkish heritage to offer an authentic Hammam, unofficially known as ‘the silent doctor', to rejuvenate the guests' body, mind and spirit. Guests can experience the healing effects of this warming treatment in three different ways. All Hammam Rituals include ten minutes relaxation within the suite as part of the treatment with free flowing water resulting in the softening of the skin in full preparation for the ritual.

The 80 minute Indulgence Hammam Ritual is a total body experience that caresses the skin, rivatilises the body and calms the mind. This traditional experience includes deep cleansing of the skin with a revitalising body scrub, followed by a full body foam massage and a nourishing body mask with aromatic oils of Sweet Orange and Rose Geranium. A refreshing hair wash and hydrating conditioning scalp massage treatment is also included.
