When it comes to resort life in the Maldives, the spa sits pretty well alongside the whole notion of unwinding on an island paradise. The resorts across the country offer variety of spa treatments to keep travellers relaxed.

Most of the resort spas are set on the edge of the beach, surrounded by hibiscus, bougainvillea, banana palms and coconut trees. The ponds filled with brightly-coloured fresh flowers created a beautiful and soothing environment for city-weary travellers.

The other spas are located over the water, across a wooden jetty from the spa's reception area. The over-water location allowed for a picturesque stroll there across a turquoise lagoon, but the best thing about it will be the way that the architect had utilised the location to incorporate glass flooring over the ocean, which will offer you the unique opportunity to gaze at the fascinating comings and goings in the crystal-clear waters beneath the villa, as the soothing touch of a massage send you off into a tropical nirvana of vibrant fish and the gentle sound of waves.

On arrival to the spa, you will be presented with a relaxing drink before giving a brief friendly consultation on what sort of treatment you want. Then all you have to do is (If you are taking Balinese passage) to decide which type of scented massage oil would you like. Probably you will be given no less to four to choose from, with each one delicately dabbed on your arm in order to see which scent you prefer the most. Once decision made, you will be escorted to a beautiful changing and relaxation area to slip on a dressing gown and slippers.
