A mermaid treatment at Varu Spa, Kandolhu Island

Kandolhu Island Spa review Maldives Blogger
 
In my previous post about Kandolhu in the Maldives I already raved about its wonderful spa. It’s called the Varu Spa and deserves an article of its own, because it is a destination in itself. The first impression is that of a pretty, intimate yet open building that lets the tropical sea breeze come through. Men and women have their own sections which are each equipped with a sauna, steam room and pool that you can use the entire day of your treatment.

I had a wonderful 90 minute relaxing massage the day after I arrived, just to slow down and get into the island vibe. It was lovely and the therapists were very welcoming and friendly. I went in again a few days later for a facial, because what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put into your body!

I was excited to try out my very first seaweed treatment and pamper my skin. I opted for the Seaweed Facial, since seaweed has a long history in the beauty industry. It is full of antioxidants and B vitamins that help cleanse, balance and heal your skin. And the best part is that a seaweed facial is suitable for all skin types. Varu Spa uses a natural and organic brand that was new to me, named Voya. Many of Voya’s products utilise certified organic seaweed.

The therapists used several Voya products during the treatment, which was a delightful combination of a relaxing massage and a beauty treatment. I have to admit there were some interesting moments, especially when the therapists began to layer the compress and the seaweed strips over my face. It turned out to be a surprisingly refreshing and nourishing experience.

Obviously, the skills of the highly professional therapists at Varu Spa play a pivotal role in the treatment. But if you ever have a chance for this type of treatment, even when it’s not at this wonderful spa on heavenly Kandolhu island, I highly recommend it! It is just very rare to combine a relaxing experience with a proper facial treatment. I came out feeling completely relaxed, yet with a much better complexion.
