Try psammotherapy to break your Insomnia Cycle at Nova Maldives

The newly-opened soft-luxury resort, Nova Maldives is bringing the beach inside with the introduction of psammotherapy (hot sand therapy) at its EsKape Spa, inspired by the ancient practice of the Greeks, Egyptians and Moroccans, a re-emerging trend that remains largely unheard of to many. 

The treatment involves lying on a special tilting table and enveloping the body in hot sand to slowly warm it up, triggering a zero-gravity inversion feeling that creates a strangely soothing sensation with many benefits, including relief for insomnia and muscular aches while encouraging deep relaxation. Guests will also experience a healing sound bath and massage as part of the process to enter a peaceful headspace where worries melt away. 

Committed to being rooted and soulful, Nova offers a wholesome experience for guests seeking a marine retreat that will leave you feeling refreshed. Perched overwater upon the whimsical blue of Nova’s lagoon, Eskape spa has all your wellness needs and wishes covered, featuring three blissful treatment rooms, a Thai Sala, a relaxation room, and a yoga pavilion.
