Kagi Maldives Spa Island to Open in July 2020
The Wellness-Focused Resort Will Offer a Holistic Retreat for Mind, Body and Soul
The five-star Kagi Maldives Spa Island will launch in the Maldives’ North Male Atoll in July 2020. The boutique 50-villa property will provide couples, friends and solo travelers with a 360° wellness experience, just a 15-minute seaplane or 60-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport.
Design & Rooms
Kagi has partnered with esteemed architect Yuji Yamazaki on the design of the resort. At the heart of the island will sit Kagi’s 1500-square-meter spa and wellness hub, complete with an open-air, teardrop-shaped floating yoga pavilion at its centre. Kagi will also house a state-of-the-art gym, two restaurants, three bars, a dive centre and a house reef.
Guests will be able to choose from three room types, a Beach Pool Villa, a Lagoon Pool Villa or an Ocean Pool Villa, all of which will be distinguished by their unique locations and will house a private pool, a sun deck and an expansive indoor-outdoor bathroom.
Spa & Wellness
Positioned at the lagoon of the island, Kagi’s Baani Spa will offer a personalized, outcome- focused wellness programme that will take guests on a journey to Release, Restore and Regain. A fully integrated wellness centre, the spa will consist of four treatment rooms with outdoor bathing facilities, a relaxation lounge, beauty salon, fully-equipped yoga and sound-healing studio, steam rooms and a spa wellness boutique.
A ‘Spa Corner’ will raise the ‘juice’ bar with superfoods and ingredients rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, offering a variety of drinks that are as delicious as they are energizing and nutritious.
Alternative therapies including crystal and sound healing, lifestyle and health coaching and nutrition lessons will complement a comprehensive range of beauty and massage treatments. For those looking to improve their fitness, a state-of-the-art gym, tai chi, qigong, yoga and Pilates will all be on offer, with a rotation of visiting expert practitioners providing dedicated retreats.
The more adventurous will also have a chance to sample a variety of watersports including day-and-night snorkeling, scuba diving, catamaran and sailing boat trips, and much more.
Kagi will house two restaurants, three bars and an expansive wine cellar. The resort’s fusion cuisine will take inspiration from the geographical ‘ring of fire’ that surrounds the Maldives, from the highly spiced and fragranced cuisine of South East Asia to the bold, fiery flavors of South America and Oceania.
The resort will provide an ‘out-of-home kitchen experience’ across its dining outlets, with a focus on whole foods and locally and sustainably sourced ingredients. Menus will be designed to create dishes that are rich in flavor and intense on the palate.
One of the Maldives’ few resorts with a well-balanced gender diversity among its management team, Kagi will embody the country’s island spirit.
