Sometimes it takes a Guru to go to sleep. At Anantara Kihavah Villas in the Maldives a unique Slumber Guru in-room service ensures guests enjoy a great night’s sleep, wakening completely rejuvenated to greet another day of exhilarating water sports or luxurious relaxation in one of the world’s most celebrated tropical havens.
After savouring an early evening meal at one of the resort’s restaurants, the Slumber Guru escorts guests to their villa where a silky milk bath awaits them in their romantic candlelight bathroom and specially selected background music sets the mood for an evening of rest and relaxation.
The pampering continues with a soothing massage in the blissful evening breeze out on their private deck, with a choice of Lavender or Ylang Ylang essential oils.
Before guests retreat to their luxuriously comfortable bed dressed with a soft feather mattress topper and 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton, the Slumber Guru serves infused herbal tea or hot chocolate and homemade cookies, evoking nostalgic childhood memories. Their personal choice of pillows from the Pillow Menu are sprayed with a soothing mist and lavender silk eye masks and ear plugs ensure that no light or sound disturb their rest.
With a softly spoken “Good night, sweet dreams” the Slumber Guru turns off the lights and tip toes outside leaving his guests to drift off into a deep and restoring sleep.
For hundreds of years throughout Thailand, people would leave a jar of water outside their house to provide refreshment and extend a welcome to the passing traveller. Anantara is taken from an ancient Sanskrit word that means ‘without end’, symbolising this sharing of water and the heartfelt hospitality that lies at the core of every Anantara experience.
From lush jungles to pristine beaches and legendary deserts to cosmopolitan cities, Anantara currently boasts 23 stunning properties located in Thailand, the Maldives, Bali, Vietnam, China and the United Arab Emirates; with future properties to open in Thailand, China, Laos, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, UAE and Oman.
