Perfect accompanying photo by Ahmed Amir – Full Moon over Kuda Huraa spa
This week’s full moon was at its farthest point from the Earth this year making it the smallest Full Moon of 2011. If you follow these sorts of celestial events, then you should follow the five stars to Four Seasons Kuda Huraa for their Night Spa just launched this week…
“The Island Spa’s Night Spa treatments are very different from treatments you might experience during the day. In fact, they’re probably different from anything you’ve experienced before. From the moment we collect you from your villa to the moment we bring you back, you’ll be wrapped in the nurturing embrace of the tropical evening air. Relax beneath the stars in the Night Spa’s torch-lit lounge, then indulge in one of four open-air lunar rituals devised by Sodashi to attune the body to nature’s rhythms. Each lunar ritual can be enjoyed at any time but will provide the greatest benefit during its linked lunar phase. Available from 10:00 pm to 1:00 am nightly, Night Spa treatments must be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance.”
Their treatments include…
- Reflect – “The new moon is a time of commencement, new beginnings and renewal.”
- Nourish – “The waxing moon is a good time to nourish and strengthen the body.”
- Harmonize– “During the full moon, the body’s healing potential and the skin’s ability to absorb minerals are at their highest.”
- Release – “The waning moon is the ideal time to eliminate toxins and negativity.”
I never like to take spa treatments during the day in the Maldives because it is just less time in sunshine and being out and about in paradise. But the night time is a bit more limited to strolls through the paths and by the ocean and a great time to ratchet the stress down that further gear.
