Idyllic island resort Amilla Fushi triumphs at the recent South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) scooping up the awards for ‘Leading Wellness Hotel Resort’ in the Maldives and South Asia. In a prestigious ceremony held at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, India on 15 September 2018, Amilla received the Gold award at national level and Silver award at regional level in the highly coveted category.


The South Asian Travel Awards is the first ever regional travel awards ceremony endorsed by multi-national associations providing the tourism sector of the South Asian region with recognition towards their facilities and service excellence. SATA aims to encourage and raise service standards of the tourism industry within the region, identifying and rewarding hospitality organisations.  Nominations included 36 categories in 10 segments, with a record of 500 nominations from the Maldives, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal and Bhutan.

The Banyan-tree shaded Javvu Spa consists of 10 treatment pods; a yoga pavilion; fitness centre; a wet area including a no-bookings-required sauna and steam room; a private training studio and the Bodyism Café. Javvu’s holistic approach is complemented by an integrated spa menu featuring result-s driven treatments from a carefully curated edit of world-class brands; Bodyism wellness and fitness programmes and sessions using both the natural environment and the latest high-tech gym equipment; and ancient healing and energy therapies.

The award-winning Spa works with select partners to help deliver an undeniably exceptional wellness experience. Each Javvu Spa massage therapist has been trained in the Pure Massage Spa Training Method, created by massage expert, Beata Aleksandrowicz, who provides spas worldwide with advanced training in a modern concept of massage based on Beata’s Twelve Principles Of Massage. The Spa’s ila Body Treatments and QMS Medicosmetics have been carefully selected for their unique blend of natural healing ingredients that leave the skin and body feeling refreshed and revitalised after every treatment.

Blissful pampering can also be enjoyed at the resorts Nail Salon, Hair & Beauty Lounge and Barber using the very best premium products for the perfect finishing touches; from Margaret Dabbs’ world-class hand and foot treatments that reverse age and promote silkiness or Louise Galvin’s steam-infused conditioning to slick and sophisticated styling with Gentlemen’s Tonic.

Javvu Spa was also recognised at this year’s World Luxury Spa Awards, named the Indian Ocean’s top luxury Beach Resort Spa. This was the third year running that Javvu Spa has won, after being crowned as the Indian Ocean’s leading luxury Beauty Spa in 2017, and the Maldives’ best luxury Emerging Spa in 2016.
