Vakkaru Maldives together with world-renowned fitness expert, Yasmin Karachiwala, concluded her first ever retreat in the Maldives. Her “Hack Your 21st Century Digitised Body” was held from 9 to 13 August 2019, delivering a high-octane bespoke programme to guests at the luxury resort. “I was absolutely thrilled to bring my brand of fitness to the Maldives for the first time and I have had the most incredible week at Vakkaru Maldives at our “Hack Your 21st Century Digitised Body” retreat! It was a holistic experience where guests could take away a little bit of everything. My personal goal was to increase each guests’ knowledge of Pilates and to beat the common misconception that you need equipment to work out. I wanted guests to know that they can work out anytime, anywhere and we achieved that goal by working out everywhere on the stunning island of Vakkaru Maldives. From Pilates with Props at the Lagoon Bar deck, to Beach Tabata at Vakku Beach. From Beach Cardio with Toney-Y Bands at Isoletta Beach to Mat Pilates at the Main Pool Deck, each location was as stunning as the other, offering uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean set against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful islands I have every visited.
“Nestled within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll in the Maldives, Vakkaru Maldives is the perfect setting to bask in the ultimate luxury of “time” and “space” where guests are invited to relax, reflect and refocus. We recognize that our guests are on a lifelong, personal and emotional quest towards a fulfilling health and wellness goal and we are dedicated to ensuring they have access to the best. Having Yasmin Karachiwala and her team on island was a fantastic experience for our guests,” says General Manager Nicholas Mason. This 2019, complementing Vakkaru's island offerings will be a collection of curated, ultra-immersive and cherishable guest experiences in collaboration with luxury guest experiences specialist, The Magnolia Creative Collaborations. From culinary greats to wellness mentors, from scent experts to fitness guru's, from luxurious fashion collaborations to exquisite artisanal pop-ups, Vakkaru Maldives will be inspiring guests to create timeless memories, effortlessly.
