Javvu Spa

Island-inspired wellness in the Maldives

With the Maldives' soft white sands on one side and the lush tropical forest on the other, Javvu Spa at Amilla Maldives combines the best of sun, sand and sea into one luxurious island escape. Named after the Dhivehi word for “atmosphere,” Javuu Spa delivers on the promise of a tranquil retreat from the outside world for your mind, body and spirit.

Shaded by towering banyan trees, the sleek facility features wood in its design, opting to keep interiors simple and letting the island’s beauty shine through. Natural light floods the spa from the treatment rooms to the movement studio with alfresco offerings like a jungle gym (fitness stations that use natural materials) and meditation labyrinth on hand to ensure you don’t have to stray far from the tropical sun while indulging in peace and quiet.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Dhivehi beys, or Maldivian medicinal practices, are the holistic thread that ties all of Javvu Spa at Amilla Maldives' luxurious offerings together. Experience the local tradition firsthand in treatments like Thamburu and Mirihi back detox and pain reliever or Masgulha Filuvaa Beys' massage.
  • Discover the secrets of holistic healing at the Alchemy Bar. Learn to brew your own kombucha or whip up an all-natural elixir during one of the spa’s workshops.
  • Among the Maldives spa’s unique services is an array of light therapies. Using a blend of colored light and vibration, you can achieve goals like balance, energy, focus or deep sleep in as little as 10 minutes.
  • Check “yoga class in the jungle” off your bucket list. Tucked into the island’s verdant forest, Javvu Spa's open-air movement studio is a tranquil retreat in which to enjoy a few sun salutations during a private class.
  • You can take a piece of Maldives relaxation home with you thanks to the spa’s own handmade soaps, scrubs and balms featuring island-grown herbs.

The Facilities

  • Staying fit on vacation is a breeze at Javvu Spa. Challenge yourself on the jungle gym beneath the shade of a banyan tree, take the scenic route on one of the only outdoor running tracks in the Maldives (the nearly two-mile path circles the island) or opt for a classic workout in the natural-light-filled cardio and strength studio.
  • Find a moment of Zen while wandering through the meditation labyrinth. Focus on your breathing and find calm as you follow the intricate path under the Maldives sun.
  • Prepare for a healing treatment with a dip in Javvu Spa’s tranquility pool overlooking the Indian Ocean. Follow your swim with a stint in the eucalyptus and seawater steam room or classic sauna.
  • For a unique take on holistic wellness, try a treatment in the spa’s Sensora room. Light, sound and kinesthetic vibration therapy come together to align your brainwaves and breathing to induce a deeper state of relaxation.
