Welcome to the first few days of 2018!
After a month of feasting and excesses, chances are you want to press reset. Before you hit your blood-pumping gym routine, start your recovery process by allowing your body to relax. And what better place to relax than in the Maldives, the quintessence of carefree living? Our travel curators have factored in mood-boosting views, well-being, digital detox and balanced cuisine to find the ultimate detox. The upshot? A chic nomadic retreat, better known as Huvafen Fushi.
Heralded as one of Earth’s terrestrial paradises, the idyllic Huvafen Fushi encourages one to escape to a simpler, more relaxed way of life (truly the fastest way to reset your internal clock). But first, the setting. Palm trees are scattered along the tranquil beach, a dewy coconut scent floats in the air, and everywhere you look, you can see an expanse of pale blue. There’s no doubt, here the blissful reigns.
Here are our tips for turning your luxury vacation into a “New Year New Me” boot camp:
Get your cardio on:
Slip on your mask and fins to explore Huvafen’s multicolored house reef, brimming with innumerable species. Fins add resistance, while swimming is the ultimate cardio.
A better complexion:
With your palatial bungalow set over the pale blue waters, taking frequent dips in the warm waters is child’s play (think of it as at-home Thalassotherapy.) The mineral-packed ocean, a natural detoxifier, will leave your skin bright and youthful.
Amped-up beach strolls:
The sugar white sand adds a bit of resistance to a walk. Stroll the shores while breathing in the salty, balmy air.
Your body is a Temple:
Work up a sweat over shimmering waters at Pump GYM, or enter a world of unadulterated bliss at Huvafen SPA, the world’s first underwater spa.
Beauty inside and out:
A seasonal reset begins with the food you put into your body. Each restaurant–Celsius, Forno, Vinum, Feeling Koi, Umbar– has on its menu an array of healthful, balances dishes that most certainly don’t forgo taste.
