The Search for Spiritual Enlightenment and Eternal Love
Prince Siddhartha left his kingdom and material possessions to search for spiritual enlightenment. Years of learning, sacrifice and realization led to the night Siddhartha sat under the Bodhi tree, and meditated until dawn. He purified his mind and attained enlightenment, thus earning the title Buddha, or "Enlightened One".
Siddhartha's love for humanity and his desire to see a world where we are all spiritual equals, led him to the belief that enlightenment cannot exist without love, and Siddhartha realized that he must accept love in order to achieve Nirvana.
Our signature Siddhartha treatment rituals have been specially designed for couples to unwind and come together in unity, finding their own personal Nirvana and path to eternal love. All rituals are performed in our private couple's suites and use the gorgeous Dorissima Siddhartha line of aphrodisiac spa products. Sensual aromas of Vanilla, Tonka and Grapefruit fill the air as you celebrate the art of love.
All treatments commence with a decadent foot cleansing ritual with warms aromatic waters to cleanse and Himalayan salts to smooth and purify. The divine Siddhartha tea, an exotic blend of Vanilla, Grapefruit, Orange and Green tea is served before each treatment ritual to prepare you for the ultimate in romantic spa journeys. Upon completion enjoy a glass of champagne together in our delightful spa garden whilst warm tropical breezes and the azure Maldivian waters lull you into a sense of bliss.
Our pampering couple's rituals create a very special memory from your time in paradise. Spoil yourself and your loved one!
