Five-star Kagi Maldives Spa Island has opened in the Maldives’ North Male Atoll. The boutique 50-villa property provides couples, friends and solo travelers with a 360° wellness experience, just a 15-minute seaplane or 60-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport.

Kagi has partnered with esteemed architect Yuji Yamazaki on the design of the resort. At the heart of the island sits Kagi’s 1500-square-meter spa and wellness hub, complete with an open-air, teardrop-shaped sky roof at its centre. Kagi houses a state-of-the-art gym, two restaurants, three bars, a dive centre and a house reef. Guests can choose from three room types, a Beach Pool Villa, a Lagoon Pool Villa or an Ocean Pool Villa, all of which will be distinguished by their unique locations and will house a private pool, a sun deck and an expansive indoor-outdoor bathroom.

Kagi’s Baani Spa offers a personalized, outcome-focused wellness programme to take guests on a journey to Release, Restore and Regain. Alternative therapies including crystal and sound healing, lifestyle and health coaching and nutrition lessons will complement a comprehensive range of beauty and massage treatments. The more adventurous also have a chance to sample a variety of watersports including day-and-night snorkeling, scuba diving, catamaran and sailing boat trips, and much more.

The resort’s fusion cuisine takes inspiration from the geographical ‘ring of fire’ that surrounds the Maldives, from the highly spiced and fragranced cuisine of East Asia to the bold, fiery flavours of South America and Oceania.
