The Nautilus Maldives and Ananda in the Himalayas Back Together for 2024

The Nautilus, the luxury private island hideaway in the Maldives, will host two senior practitioners from the world’s most renowned holistic wellness retreat, Ananda in the Himalayas from 16th to 26th August 2024. Combining Ananda’s specialist Ayurvedic knowledge with The Nautilus’s timeless hospitality offering, this residency will provide the ultimate restorative wellness experience.

The Ananda treatments will be available to guests at any time of day and will be provided in the overwater Solasta Spa’s glass-floored private treatment pavilions in the comfort of guest’s houses and residences.

Mr Sandeep Dhamada and Ms Krishna Karki, two of Ananda’s most accomplished and expert holistic therapists, will lead the treatments.

As a follow-up to these speciality treatments, The Nautilus guests will benefit from an online consultation with an Ayurvedic physician so that the holistic benefits of the treatments will continue after their stay.

Guests trying some of the healthy cuisine

Ananda’s gourmet Ayurvedic cuisine will be available anywhere on the island, incorporating anti-inflammatory properties, with fundamental food tastes carefully combined with macronutrients.

About Ananda in the Himalayas
With just 26 beach and oceanside houses and residences and an extensive range of facilities and spa amenities, the private island is surrounded by the natural beauty of Hanifaru Bay, one of the largest manta feeding hotspots in the world, with white sandy beaches, pristine waters and coral reefs.

Its tranquil location, ultra-luxury five-star facilities, and service levels make The Nautilus the perfect private island resort to relax, reset and recharge.

Ananda in the Himalayas is one of the world’s leading luxury wellness retreats, aligning with the rejuvenating spirit of The Nautilus. Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, the birthplace of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation, Ananda integrates these ancient practices with therapy and Oriental medicine.

The partnership first launched in 2022, and this year’s iteration enhances the already extensive wellness offering with a series of curated experiences for guests looking to rebalance their body, soul and mind.

Specialty Treatments Offered by Ananda at The Nautilus:

Ananda Touch with Reflexology (90 Mins)
A rhythmic flowing massage with rose-scented oils that release tension and stress combined with the stimulation of reflex points on the feet restoring energy flow to the whole body and creating balance within the body and mind.

Indian Head Massage with Reflexology (90 Mins)
This ancient experience relaxes, tones, and eases muscle tension in the neck, head, scalp and shoulders. It also aids in the elimination of toxins by stimulating circulation, followed by a massage on the feet with the application of pressure on the soles, restoring healthy energy flow throughout.

Indian Head Massage with Shiatsu (90 Mins)
A traditional massage provides deep relaxation in your neck, head, scalp, and shoulders, guiding toxins out while leaving you feeling revitalised. This is followed by Shiatsu, a full–body pressure point experience that improves circulation and boosts the immune system.

Himalayan Honey and Rose Facial with Foot Massage (90 mins)
This stimulating and refreshing facial uses a blend of sandalwood and rose essential oils. Pure organic honey harvested from the Himalayas is massaged into the skin, and a cooling cucumber mask is applied. While the mask hydrates your skin, enjoy a soothing foot massage where reflex points are stimulated.

Ananda Moksha (90 Mins)
Ananda Moksha is a full-body massage that has incorporated traditional Ayurvedic therapeutic techniques for thousands of years in India. The holistic therapy is inspired by the concept of Moksha which signifies a liberation of the senses and a release for free flow of Prana or energy.
