Velaa Private Island luxury resort with 6-suite spa to open in the Maldives with Clarins spa

Velaa Private Island, a new luxury resort in the Maldives, will open in Q4 of 2013, with a Spa My Blend by Clarins.

Privately owned and managed by Czech entrepreneurs Radka and Jiri Smejc, the Petr Kolar-designed resort is made up of 43 private villas and five four-bedroom residences, which focus on local materials and contemporary flourishes. Each private retreat offers a generous outdoor space and private pool.

The spa facilities feature six spa suites nestled over the island’s lagoon, with two suites reserved for couples. Given the partnership with Spa My Blend by Clarins, exclusive products and treatments will be on offer. This is the fourth Spa My Blend by Clarins to open, with others in Paris, Cannes and Toronto.

The spa will also have an experience area which houses a steamroom, sauna and the Maldives’ first-ever snowroom. Alongside these features is a Cloud 9 flotation suite providing a cloud-shaped reclining treatment pod by Klafs and Sha. There is also a relaxation area looking out to sea, a hair salon, juice bar and retail lounge. Additionally, 10 of the villas on the island will include private spa suites with the full spa menu on offer.

The corporate Spa division at Clarins has been heavily involved with the design and architecture team from early on in the project and has also provided pre-opening support.

To accompany the spa, the resort has a yoga pavilion offering sessions with a yoga master and personal training programmes. Velaa Private Island’s gym is equipped with world-class Technogym equipment, while sports being offered include a Troon Short Game Golf Academy designed by two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal.

The resort has also established a partnership with Michelin star chef Adeline Grattard from Paris, who will oversee food and beverage operations.
