It is no secret that coconut oil can work wonders: it heals dry, damaged and frizzy hair, it is the ideal remedy for chapped lips, it can serve as a night cream, makes for a great body lotion – the beauty care has gone nuts about coconuts!
Coconut is also a firm favourite at Duniye Spa – the Maldivian Serenity Ritual signature treatment, in particular, is all about coconut; straight from one of Hurawalhi’s palm trees into your treatment room, this spa ritual it as organic, tropical and Maldives-inspired as it gets…
Swaying you into a cocoon of relaxation is the sound of the singing bowl, followed by an Asian-inspired ritual on the over-water balcony: sea salt foot scrub and a peppermint and eucalyptus spray set the scene for the pampering to come. The star of the treatment is the full-body polish with freshly ground coconut and vanilla, a natural delight that feels and smells magnificently and makes your skin glow.
Coconut oil infused with rosemary is used during the Indian head massage that follows, with your hair bound to be silky thanks to the coconut hair mask.
To further regain harmony between body and mind, spa visitors get to enjoy a holistic, full-body massage with coconut oil while admiring the fish life beneath through the glass floor window.
The Maldivian Serenity Ritual indulgence delivers a true island experience that lingers on long after the treatment itself – succumb to more mesmerising Hurawalhi moments in the Tree Top Lounge, where your taste buds will get a treat too – coconut cookies, perfectly paired with ginger and lemongrass tea.
