This December, Hurawalhi Island Resort invites mindful travellers to experience their exceptional yoga offering: Sunset Yoga on Hurawalhi’s private utopia, Dream Island beach. Hosted by YouTube fitness sensation Meggan Grubb, this sunset yoga session will be the first of many, as Hurawalhi invites guests to take a breath and become one with the ocean, finding a new flow between mind, body and the rhythm of the waves.
Priding herself on teaching simple yet effective workouts, influencer Meggan, who has over 1 million Instagram followers, will guide guests through a series of traditional yoga poses and breathing techniques. She promises to bring guests closer to a zen-like state as they pose under the warmth of the setting sun and feel the slight tingle of the ocean breeze while listening to the soothing sound of lapping waves as they move from one stance to another. With only the Indian Ocean’s multi-hued blue water and the evening sky’s kaleidoscopic colours in sight, this powder white sandbank offers 360-degree views of unspoiled beauty.
An innovative wellbeing destination, Hurawalhi believes in the healing power of water, inviting guests on a path towards inner peace with unique sound bath and wave meditation experiences, as well as extraordinary underwater yoga classes. Guests can practice their Vinyasa flow 5.8 metres below the ocean’s surface in the world’s largest, all-glass undersea restaurant, ‘5.8’.
Adding to the magic of this tropical getaway, Hurawalhi also offers private excursions to Dream Island where gourmet picnics and candlelit dinners can be organised for the ultimate romantic seclusion. After a day perfecting their poses either above or below water, Hurawalhi’s award-winning Duniye Spa offers a range of results-driven beauty and spa treatments inspired by both ancient traditions and modern practices, using only organic, non-toxic and cruelty-free products for pampering in paradise.
Situated in the Lhaviyani Atoll, Hurawalhi Island Resort is just a 40-minute seaplane flight from Male and is a heavenly holiday destination. Guests can stay in one of 90 stylish villas at this five-star resort, including 60 Ocean Villas and 30 Beach Villas which feature soothing decor, sumptuous linens on king-sized beds, bleached wooden floors and private terraces with panoramic views.
