We offer a holistic approach to your wellness journey at Amilla Maldives’ Javvu Spa. Our offerings encompass cuisine, spa, movement, and mindfulness. We also incorporate the local traditional medicine, ‘Dhivehi Beys’ into some treatments and at our Alchemy Bar where you can learn how to make your own natural bath products. Five different wellness programmes are on offer, designed to fit into your holiday without dominating it.



Local Area

Amilla is one of few Maldivian owned and operated resorts. We offer our guests the opportunity to learn about the culture through unique cultural immersions. Guests can journey to two nearby island communities to observe Maldivians making traditional crafts, and even visit a ‘secret’ island museum run by a local private collector. On top of this, guests can also visit a very special coral garden on an exclusive excursion. 

Amilla is located in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Within it lies Hanifaru Bay, just ten minutes from our island. Here, you can snorkel within a unique coral bay where remarkably huge aggregations of manta rays (and even the occasion whale shark) gather, from May to November.


Family Friendly

Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences is committed to the care of guests of all ages. Our Kids’ Club offers an experiential weekly programme of activities that introduce the world of sustainability and the environment to our little VIPs in a fun and fascinating way. Children can also join our Mini Marine Biology programme to learn about the underwater world. We offer Safety Turtle devices (a wearable water alarm) for tots to wear by your private pool, and babysitting services are available. Amilla also offers a Teens’ Programme, with activities such as aerial silks workshops, DJ classes, guitar lessons and more. Kids’ menus are available at all outlets and children receive their own welcome amenities
