A thirty-minute consultation determines the oil blends, herbs, food, and treatments most effective for your skin—and your Ayurvedic dosha. You arrive at the spa via a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian wooden boat that slices through turquoise waters. The facials combine high-tech medical therapies with ancient holistic practices; some treatments are even tethered to the cycles of the moon. The Sea of Life is particularly complexion-perfecting: An over-the-top ninety minutes of craniosacral therapy followed by a beautiful face massage with organic, wild-harvested seaweed and algae-spiked formulas that leave you drop-dead radiant.
