Maldive: Loama Resort Maldive at Maamigili

Gilt – Edged Pampering At Loama Resort Maldives At Maamigili

Inspired by the surrounding pristine seas that attract discerning travellers from around the globe, Loama Resort utilises the very best of Mother Nature to create an incomparable wellness experience at the newly launched Loama Spa

Situated amidst a stunning natural tapestry of sun-kissed lagoons, palm-fringed beaches and picture-perfect panoramas, Loama Resort Maldives at Maamigili enjoys a prestigious location that spans 100 hectares of untouched coral reef within the Raa Atoll. Designed to embody the rustic, yet sophisticated, charm of the Maldives, Loama offers unparalleled beauty and a unique holiday experience that leaves every guest with the feeling of having truly tasted the exuberant culture and rich heritage of this fabled archipelago.

Recently opened in January 2015, Loama Resort offers a world-class boutique getaway with 105 rooms designed to bring the past into the future, capturing the spirit of the island’s celebrated artisans. Guests are invited to have a peek at ancient rituals, feeling completely immersed in the cultural rhythm of the island before they head back home to reality.

Committed to delivering a luxury destination experience beyond expectation, Loama Resort has conceptualised a new spa that captures the essence of indigenous Maldivian culture. Influenced by traditional herbal cures, various treatments dating back to antiquity and pure ingredients found within the bounty of the sea, Loama Spa is located amidst the lush vegetation of Maamigili and extends out into the ocean thanks to a cleverly crafted spa jetty. Encompassing a generous 496 sq.m., the spa faces southwest to showcase spectacular sunsets.

Solid timber flooring, white-washed wooden furnishings, elegant cotton linens and mesmerising views out to thatched roof bungalows create a relaxing and truly soothing ambience. In addition to sumptuous surroundings and an impeccably produced signature spa line, Loama Spa is also dedicated to cultivating the best spa team in the region. Truly understanding the unique nuances of island life, each treatment is designed to impart an unforgettable memory of paradise.

Signature treatments, found under Cultural Highlights on the spa menu, include the spa’s addictive Loama Massage. Choose from detoxifying, energising or calming scents and essential oils, depending on your mood, and, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, make sure to reserve the over-water glass-bottom spa pavilion. Treated like royalty, each guest is pampered with a floral footbath, the first step in total-body reinvigoration. The massage itself is an innovative blend of Maldivian, Swedish and Thai acupressure techniques that encourage an overall sense of deep relaxation. A unique Loama blend of essential oils and fragrances fill the treatment suite with an intoxicating combination of orange, geranium, bergamot, rosemary, juniper and ylang ylang, while lemongrass works to cleanse and detoxify cramped and aching muscles.

The purity of the ingredients is quite extraordinary, leaning heavily on well-known super foods that work to support the immune system on a deeply cellular level. Deborah Simms, founder of The Source, the specialists who created the signature Loama Spa range, said the most authentic Maldivian treatments were those inspired by pearls.
