Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort and Anantara Veli Maldives Resort offer guests new wellness programming. The properties introduced nutritional therapy, wellness cuisine workshops, health and nutrition seminars and an on-site nutritionist. These new offerings, combined with the resorts’ spa facilities, give guests an immersive wellness experience.
Naturopath and nutritional therapist Kelly Manning brings a wealth of knowledge on nutrition to guests. Manning offers individual, 90-minute nutrition and lifestyle consultations. During the sessions, she works closely with guests to assess their body composition and any health issues they may have. Based on her findings, she recommends a tailored diet and lifestyle plan with practical steps guests can continue at home.
Manning worked with the on-site chefs on menu development, bringing guests new breakfast and beverage menus with healthier options. The team is currently developing lunch, dinner and snack offerings, which will be available soon.
In addition, Manning hosts several nutritional seminars. “Simple Tips for Eating Healthily” focuses on quick and easy options to make for a balanced diet. “Nutrition; Sleep Health and Creating Evening Rules” examines the importance of nutrition and sleep on an individual’s overall wellbeing. “Peak Performance Nutrition” offers strategies for using diet to naturally increase immunity and energy levels. These seminars include cooking demonstrations and tasting. They are offered as a group seminar, and can also be booked as a private session.
Family-friendly Anantara Dhigu and adults-only Anantara Veli are located on separate islands in the South Malé Atoll, minutes apart via boat. In addition to the new nutrition programming, both properties offer updated spa menus and a variety of complimentary fitness experiences.

For added security, the elevators are only accessible to those who have a key card to a guestroom.
Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels. The revolutionary, AI-powered Restorative Bed uses real-time technology to intuitively adjust based on the individual’s needs and preferences. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics, like heart rate and breathing patterns, when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features and lulling sleepers into deep sleep. Computer-controlled air cushions alleviate pressure points, and the technology also leads sleepers naturally out of sleep.

Talk about a grand entrance! After driving across the state of Pennsylvania and spending the last 40 minutes of our journey in a snowstorm, Nemacolin’s The Chateau coming into view was a welcome and gorgeous sight. After stopping at a checkpoint where our temperatures were taken, we drove to the valet, where we were helped with our many bags (winter gear takes up a lot of luggage space!) and escorted into an equally gorgeous lobby, bedecked with red roses in a nod to Nemacolin’s recent gig as host venue for the latest season of The Bachelor. Given the late hour, the lobby was quiet and empty. We were offered Champagne at check-in and were quickly on our way to our guestroom.
