Bespoke Ayurvedic Retreats: Reset Body and Mind at The St. Regis Maldives This Spring

March 26, 2018 Health and Wellness No Comments Email Email

Private island resort The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, has launched a series of Ayurvedic retreats, curated by its in-house Ayurveda doctor at its over-water Iridium Spa. Those embarking on the new Wellness Voyages will indulge in pure relaxation in the paradisiacal surroundings, while being given the tools to live a healthy and happy life once they return home.

Dr. Sudhi Suresh, who has been practising the ancient Indian medicinal system for over ten years, has developed three, five and seven-day retreats which are designed to promote good health through a mind-body connection.

Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems, which was developed over 3,000 years ago in India, based on the belief that health and happiness is maintained through a balance in mind, body and spirit. As a complete way of life, it includes yoga, diet, herbal remedies and meditation to enhance the overall wellbeing of those who practise it.

Each retreat begins with a one-to-one private lifestyle consultation with the doctor. Lasting 30 minutes, the session includes a pulse diagnosis, a series of lifestyle-analysing questions and a questionnaire to complete. The doctor uses this information to establish guests’ body type in addition to the state of their physical and mental health, and creates a bespoke recommended lifestyle programme of diet and activity.

Following the assessment, guests will receive a specially recommended combination of spa treatments and private yoga sessions that have been tailored based on their individual requirements. The Ayurvedic rituals include massages, exfoliation and steam treatments to encourage good health and relaxation. The retreats include:

Navikarana (Renewal):

Three days: £640pp ($890)

He has worked at a range of top hotels worldwide, before joining The St. Regis Maldives when it opened in November 2016.
