Male’, Maldives, 30th January 2024 – A growing body of evidence indicates that human health, both mental and physical, is intrinsically linked to nature. Many experts now believe that blue spaces, such as lakes, rivers, and oceans, could be even more beneficial than the green spaces celebrated for keeping us calm and grounded. The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, an architectural masterpiece hovering above the crystal waters of one of the world’s most enticing oceans, enters 2024 offering a prescriptive package to harness nature’s medicine with a special ‘Blue Rate.’
For those experiencing stress, anxiety, or simply seeking escape from urban environments, the resort, surrounded by endless Indian Ocean vistas and designed to embrace the rhythmic energy of ocean waters, is the ultimate destination for a ‘Blue Prescription.’ An experience curated to encourage optimum engagement with the deep blue, guests will stay in the iconic ocean pool villas, renowned for their clean sweeping lines and uninterrupted blue vistas. Complete with private sun decks, plunge pools, and peppered with organic Bamford amenities, the elliptical satellites provide the perfect ocean cocoon for relaxation and restorative sleep.
From dawn to dusk, days are spent above and below the ocean, inhaling the morning with sunrise yoga and exhaling with a snorkeling experience designed by the legendary ocean explorer and conservationist Jean-Michel Cousteau. For qualified divers, resort naturalists will guide underwater exploration, offering healing interactions with mesmerizing ecosystems and wildlife encounters with eagle rays and hawksbill turtles.
Practiced in the halo-shaped design-spa hovering over its sparkling lagoon, the resort’s B Balanced treatment with Bamford will be the spa highlight. To nature’s soundtrack of hypnotic ocean rhythms, B Balanced will bring 90 minutes of pure indulgence, dedicated entirely to nurturing well-being and bringing the body and mind back to center. Harnessing the power of botanicals, the treatment can target any hormonal and energy imbalance, with attention turning to breathwork, bamboo tapping, and gua sha massage.
Guests will take to the big blue by boat to catch a sighting of the ocean’s most serene residents, embracing the healing energy of dancing dolphins, and closing the day with a private dinner aboard the resort yacht. The pinnacle of calm will take place on a private sandbank, surrounded by lapping azure waters, where a private sunset ceremony begins with a mindfulness practice and closes with a personalized experience of the resort’s Defining Moment. A tribute to the cycle of nature, the signature ritual serenades the sun as it sets on another day, with hypnotic beats of Boduberu drumming and the blowing of the Sangu shell.
