Guests at Vakkaru Maldives can now enjoy bespoke Ayurvedic wellness programming in the resort's overwater Merana Spa. The program, featuring Sri Lankan Ayurveda brand Siddhalepa, is overseen by Ayurvedic doctor Kalani Perera, who performs a private consultation before each session. 

Treatments in the program include:

  • Immune Boosting Therapy, a full-body ritual aimed at strengthening immunity to enhance health, energy and longevity
  • 90-minute chakra sessions that target blockages in the body’s energy centers
  • Shirodhara treatments in which warm herbal oils are poured over the third eye to reduce stress and improve sleep
  • Abhyanga massage that removes toxins, melts fat and moisturizes the skin

For a more comprehensive approach, guests can book 14-day Ayurveda packages to target their specific issues. The Merana Spa team can also provide dietary advice so that guests can choose foods that best support their goals.
