Tips for Preparing for Your Spa Experience
If you’re planning to visit Hoba Spa at Oaga Art Resort Maldives, here are some tips to help you prepare for your spa experience:
Drink plenty of water: It’s important to stay hydrated before and after your therapies. Drinking water before your appointment can help to prepare your body and ensure that you’re well-hydrated.
Arrive early: Arriving early allows you to relax and settle in before your therapies, as well as making use on the unique Fen Vadaa facilities to enhance the benefits of the experience.
Avoid heavy meals: Try to avoid eating a heavy meal before your appointment. This can cause discomfort during therapies and may interfere with the relaxation process.
Communicate with your Beys Goyye / Beys Kalo (Maldivian for therapist, healer): It’s important to communicate with your therapist about any concerns or preferences you may have. This can help to ensure that your therapies are tailored to your specific needs and that you get the most out of your experience.
Shower before your appointment: The oils used are highly effective and therapeutic. We suggest to take a shower before the therapy to prepare the skin and avoid showering immediately aft the appointment, to allow the oils to works their magic for at least a couple of hours.
