    Calm Spa & Wellness

    Variety is the spice of life and the team at JA Manafaru believes in offering choices for all. The island experience objective is to support every interested guest on a personal path to wellness during an unforgettable Maldivian escape.

    A Holistic Approach To Wellness

    Every effort is made tailoring experiences to make for a true Indian Ocean castaway vacation with all the luxurious trimmings discerning travellers come to expect. To assist in achieving this pure pleasure, ‘Wellness Your Way’ is JA Manafaru’s island initiative to compliment individual lifestyles from cuisine to wellbeing.

    Guests may wish to work out in the gym and eat salad one day, whilst the next evening enjoy a seven-course degustation in our subterranean wine cellar - choices to turn an island escape into an unforgettable dream.

    Calm Spa And Wellness

    Calm Spa Sanctuary is the island’s wellness retreat in the heart of a tropical forest.

    Nothing more than the sound of nature echoing can be heard in the secluded garden as energy flows from all around. With eight private rooms, guests can indulge in the most peaceful and therapeutic of treatments, while listening to the wildlife of the tropical canopy.

    Taking influence from Eastern and Western therapies, the spa's certified practitioners also combine the local tradition of Dhivehi Beys, the ancient Maldivian art of blending the island's herbs and plants to create medicinal natural products for a signature treatment. With both men's and women’s steam rooms and saunas, as well as plunge pools in the changing rooms, Calm Spa Sanctuary really is a 'Heaven on Earth' experience.

    Eating Well On Vacation

    At JA Manafaru, understanding the personal needs of each guest doesn't just stop at the villa category chosen or the choice of pillow softness.
    When it comes to dining, offering a wide range of restaurants and outlets is one way this beautiful island enhances guest experience with more choices. Outlets aside, also meeting the personal eating lifestyles of guests takes this principle of choice even further.

    JA Manafaru's 'Wellness Your Way' has been designed to broaden the island's menu choices, catering for more diverse tastes and diets. Every one of the themed restaurants offers dishes with wellbeing in mind. Guests can choose from full menus of specially prepared dishes for diets including, dairy free, gluten free, vegan/vegetarian and low carb.

    Yoga And Mindfulness

    With nature in abundance on this most secluded of tropical islands, JA Manafaru is the perfect escape for those who enjoy the benefits of yoga and stretching. Complimentary scheduled classes will enrich the mind, body, and soul.

    For a little more privacy, why not book a private session with the resident certified Yoga Master, and commune with the island energy through breathwork and meditation sessions.
