Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives unveils a luxury array of new spa offerings

Gili Lankanfushi, the pioneer of sustainable, barefoot luxury in the Maldives, has launched a spoiling array of luxury new spa offerings for the new season.

Ranging from a brand-new spa menu at the award-winning overwater Meera Spa – including the introduction of five new pairing journeys centred on the elements of the universe – to ‘moonbathing‘ in one’s very own private villa, a true spring awakening for the senses awaits.

Commenting on the new offerings, Meera Spa Manager Eka Rianti said:

“We are thrilled to introduce these transformative new experiences for our guests, building on the world class spa offering here at Gili Lankanfushi. Our discerning clientele – many of whom are repeat guests – have come to expect the very best when it comes to wellness, and we are proud to provide them with truly memorable, cutting edge and holistic therapies – all available exclusively on our beautiful island paradise. At Meera Spa as on the island, we are truly passionate about sustainability and look to support local business wherever possible, utilising eco-friendly, organic products and sourcing as much as possible from the resort’s organic garden.”

Gili Lankanfushi’s luxurious Meera Spa provides the very best in holistic healing within a spectacular overwater setting, and with a brand-new spa menu now available it has set the bar for wellness in the Maldives even higher.

The highlight of the new menu is the indulgent ‘Pairing Journey’ offering, a series of multi-treatment experiences combining Meera’s most transformational therapies. Guests can choose from five pairings that are based around the five elements of the universe – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space – and take place over two days. Each 150-minute retreat journey promises to unveil the true essence of rejuvenation, where blissful relaxation meets transformative experiences.

The pairing journeys include:

Earth (150 minutes – $365)

A grounding experience blending Shirodara, an ancient combination of Abhyanga massage with a steady flow of warm oil onto the forehead for deep relaxation and stress relief, and Foot Reflexology.

Water (150 minutes – $350)

A blissful duo sure to leave guests floating out of the spa post-treatment! A combination of Meera’s Detox Cellulite Treatment, which enhances toxin elimination and skin texture on localised areas through vigorous massage and herbal powder, and Chi Nei Tsang, a therapeutic massage that targets pressure points in the abdomen to detoxify the body, stimulate lymph flow and release emotional tension.

Fire (150 minutes – $350)

An energy and power-boosting mix of Choorna Swedana, a warm herbal poultice massage designed to increase blood circulation and relieve the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism, and Deep Muscle Fusion, a deep tissue massage to relieve muscle stress and aid muscle realignment.

Air (150 minutes – $350)

Rediscover love and rebuild connections with ‘Air’, a combination of Abhyanga Massage using medicated Indian Ayurveda oil to heal and restore the flow of vital energy, and Warm Stone Therapy, a gentle yet effective treatment using heated basal stones.

Space (150 minutes – $345)

Enhance the intuition with a blend of ancient Tibetan Singing Bowl therapy to calm the nervous system and relieve stress, and Indian Head Massage.


One for the wellness-lover who has tried it all, guests of Gili Lankanfushi can now indulge in a spot of ‘moonbathing’ within the privacy of their own overwater villa. The practice of soaking in the moonlight has been said to calm body and mind, reducing stress and thereby improving sleep. For women in particular, the moon is thought to boost hormones, positively influencing their cycle, fertility and symptoms of the menopause.

Each and every overwater villa features its very own roof deck star bed, made up with luxurious linens to provide the perfect spot to soak in the moonlight. Beneath the moon’s gentle glow, guests can lay back and spot the crystal-clear constellations as they slowly drift away to the sounds of the rolling waves.

Guests can also enjoy the new Mindful Dream retreat journey offering at Meera Spa which includes mindfulness breathing, aromatherapy, sound healing and a stress-busting massage technique to aid in a restful and rejuvenating night’s sleep.

This 110 minute treatment is available in villa from 19:00 – 22:00 hours.

Gili Lankanfushi enjoys an unspoilt island location in the Maldives’ North Malé Atoll, just 20 minutes by speedboat from Malé airport. Perfectly suited for couples, families, solo travellers and groups alike, the resort combines rustic eco-design, unparalleled service and stunning natural scenery with a laid-back-luxury, ‘no news, no shoes’ philosophy.

Nightly rates at Gili Lankanfushi start from $1,440, based on two adults sharing a Villa with breakfast included. For more information or to book please visit
