Deravana Spa launches new complimentary wellness class at Dusit Thani Maldives

The award-winning Devarana Spa at Dusit Thani Maldives has launched a new wellness programme giving guests the opportunity to learn the secrets behind the spa’s renowned Thai massage and Thai Stretching treatments.

Every Wednesday from 10am-10.45am, guests can learn Thai Massage, often called Thai Yoga Massage, with the spa’s expert therapists in the comfort of the Devarana Sanctuary.


Considered a part of traditional Thai medicine, Thai massage combines elements of yoga, meditation, acupressure and assisted stretching to relieve physical and emotional tension. Research has shown that Thai massage can increase physical energy levels, relieve headaches, stimulate circulation and improve range of motion.

Guests can also learn traditional Thai Stretching postures typical to the ancient “Rusie Dotton” method, also known as the Hermit’s Body Twist, every Saturday from 10am – 10.45am. These exercises are designed to promote flexibility, improve circulation, reduce stress, and boost concentration. Both classes are complimentary for guests staying at the resort.

Located just 35 minutes by seaplane from capital city Malé, and 10 minutes by speedboat from Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport in Baa Atoll, Dusit Thani Maldives comprises 94 villas and residences, along with three restaurants, two bars, and Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa. The resort is surrounded by a rich house reef, white sandy beaches and a turquoise lagoon. A well-equipped Kids Club adds to the resort’s family-friendly appeal.
