The Nautilus Maldives invites guests to embark on a moonlit spiritual journey of healing and sensual awakening as the luxury bohemian hideaway launches its new bi-monthly Full Moon Crystal Singing Bowl meditation sessions.
Performed at the resort’s overwater yoga sala during each full moon phase, the immersive night-time experience combines guided Pranayama yoga techniques and Crystal Singing Bowl meditation to realign and balance chakras and help set intentions for the next lunar cycle.
The Nautilus’ new Full Moon Crystal Singing Bowl meditation harnesses the spiritual energy released during the full moon cycle to act as a catalyst and support guests to experience increased states of peace and clarity. Guided meditation combined with the practice of Pranayama relaxes the mind, helping to balance heightened energy and channel it into clearing blockages and emotional distress. The vibrations of the singing bowl sound bath focus body and mind on the release of stagnant energy and tension, enabling guests to realign the mind and relax whilst soaking in the healing energy of the crystals. Performed by experienced wellness practitioners from the resort’s Solasta Spa, the meditation ritual takes place on the resort’s overwater yoga pavilion in the light of the full moon; a sanctuary of movement, mindfulness and release.
The Nautilus’ daily programme of complimentary yoga, fitness and meditation sessions also provides an alternate space to escape the pressures of daily life, inviting guests to practice yoga in any way they please: classical Hatha postures and breathing; Ashtanga series; flowing Vinyasa; Yin exercises to improve joint mobility; or aerial yoga. With the promise of absolute freedom, where every moment is tailored to guests’ desires, the guided Crystal Singing Bowl meditation is also available on request and can be combined with a yoga session or following a massage to create a deeper sense of relaxation and to strengthen the immune system. The resort’s overwater Solasta Spa has been recently augmented with the addition of an air-conditioned space for yoga, whilst fitness enthusiasts can also enjoy games such as futsal and badminton on the island’s brand-new multi-sport court.
The Nautilus is the realisation of a vision of boundless privacy and unscripted luxury, where guests can choose exactly what they want to do, where and when. Open 24 hours a day, guests are encouraged to shape their own personal journey at the resort’s Solasta Spa and take treatments whenever, and for as long as they desire. Set on stilts over the serene lagoon, Solasta Spa specialises in the bespoke, designing wellness programmes and daily rituals that refresh and relax, pamper and protect.
Three glass-bottomed, over-water treatment pavilions await at any hour. Focusing on natural healing, treatments are enhanced by organic products by Maison Caulières from France and Omorovicza from Hungary, which are exclusive to Solasta and chosen for their natural yet efficacious ingredients. Therapeutic pre- and post- treatment bathing experiences take place in the spa pavilions’ outdoor decks under azure skies and above turquoise waters. The Nautilus also hosts Freedom Yoga each morning and evening to salute or bid farewell to the sun as it journeys across the meridian, allowing guests to really embrace Maldivian nature.
The Full Moon Crystal Singing Bowl ritual is priced at USD100 (30 mins), USD150 (60 mins) and USD200 (90 mins). Guided Crystal Singing Bowl meditation also available on request.
