A First For Asia - Youth Synergy Arrives at Velaa Private Island

In an area already renowned for exclusivity and luxury, Velaa Private Island offers a lot of firsts. It is the first and only resort in the Maldives to offer guests use of a private submarine, a snow room and access to the largest wine cellar in the region.  It is the only resort in the Maldives that has a strict no drone rule, in-room dining direct to the ocean, and with a ratio of 1:8 guests to staff and dedicated butlers; it is privacy personified.

It is also the only resort in the Maldives with a Spa by My Blend by Clarins.  And now, there is yet another first.  Clarins has chosen Velaa Private Island to debut its newest innovation: Youth Synergy, with Velaa Private Island being only resort in Asia to offer this original and exciting new wellness treatment.

Combining traditional beauty methods with the newest in beauty and cosmetic technology, Youth Synergy has a focus on creating the most personalised beauty regime. The My Blend Youth Synergy Facial takes the original concept of personalised facial formulas by Dr. Olivier Courtin and makes it more relevant to how we approach anti-aging treatments today.  It begins with a lifestyle consultation to evaluate stress levels, diet and environment factors that may have an effect on the client, followed by a skin diagnosis to determine levels of hydration, firmness and high definition images which reveal any redness and pigmentation under the skin. Based on these results a spa therapist will then customise a blend of moisturisers and boosters to suit individual skin’s needs.

The new high – tech additions to the treatment help renew cells, plump the skin, drain toxins and puffiness and restore skin elasticity.  A UV-free LED mask is placed over the face which emits wave lengths for penetration into the skin layers, these wave lengths also work with specific colours: red to calm, boost collagen cells thus reduce signs of aging, blue to purify and kill bacteria and pink to accelerate skin recovery.

My Wave Blend is a 12-minute vibratory treatment that is applied to the face and décolleté to stimulate lymphatic drainage, drain toxins and decrease puffiness. Finally, My Cryotech is a cooling wand using cryotherapy technology to tone the skin for an instant glow and tighter pores.

One of only four My Blend by Clarins spas in the world, Velaa Private Island‘s stunning spa stands over turquoise waters populated with needlefish and the occasional turtle. Reached by wooden walkways, each of the treatment rooms is set within its own traditional thatched cabin with spectacular sea views.

Unquestionably the most exceptional hotel in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island is also one of the most extraordinary hotels on earth.  Recently named one of the world's Top Five Best Hotels*  Velaa Private Island boasts a selection of stylishly appointed luxury villas and hotel offerings that are nothing short of spectacular.

Tucked away within the collection of islands that form the Noonu Atoll, Velaa Private Island is elegantly positioned to overlook enchanting vistas of a cerulean ocean. Its name derived from the generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch; it is comprised of 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences.





About Velaa Private Island

Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”. 

Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body. The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and residences and four four-bedroom residences, while 18 are built over water.
