Spa Concept

The Universal Resorts Spas’ core concept centres on a delicate blend of tradition, simplicity and nature. The objective of this is to immerse guests with an authentic, time-honoured and yet contemporary Maldivian experience. Each spa offered a distinct experience. The ingredients used in all the Signature treatments and Rituals are pure and freshly derived from nature and indigenous to the Maldives, thereby enhancing and promoting a quality and definitive atoll experience. A selection of those natural indigenous ingredients is produced by Maldivian island communities which are supported by Per AQUUM and Universal Resorts’ Corporate Social Responsibility Programme.
