Huvafen Spa has also created a new Maldivian signature treatment based on a secret traditional local healing recipe. Meaning wellbeing and sensuality, Dhimaalis is a 90-minute treatment that begins with a gentle body scrub using sand from Huvafen’s own shores and Maldivian Dhivi beys herbs grown on the island. The scrub is cleaned through immersion in the salt water of the lagoon, leaving the skin purified and spirits reawakened (US$225++ per person).

Re-infused with the island’s signature sensuality, Huvafen Fushi’s much-loved culinary experiences – from poolside UMBar to subterranean wine trove Vinum – have been augmented by the addition of Feeling Koi, serving modern izakaya-style Japanese cuisine with an alluring Latin twist.
