Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas is refreshing a selection of its idyllic Maldives resorts with the introduction of Nutritional therapy, wellness cuisine workshops and health and nutrition seminars.

The new initiatives will offer Anantara’s guests the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of one of the most crucial pillars of wellness and investigate how they can use nutrition to progress in their journey to optimal wellbeing.

To anchor the new offering, Anantara has newly appointed Kelly Manning as resident naturopath and nutritional therapist at Anantara Veli, Anantara Dhigu and Naladhu Private Island.

Having trained at London’s College of Naturopathic Medicine, Manning will use nutrition to help guests overcome stress, sleep issues and unhealthy eating patterns, as well as helping with immunity, digestion, weight management, hormones, skin and blood sugar balance.

She is offering 90-minute nutrition and lifestyle consultations including anthropometric testing, costing US$305 (€257, £221).

Consultations rely on a Tanita scale monitor and tape measure to assess guests’ body composition, with a particular focus on body fat, cellular hydration, muscle mass and metabolic age.

Manning will also check guests’ eyes, fingernails and tongues for signs of any other health issues.

She will then deduce which systems of their body require nourishment and support to achieve overall balance.

Following this, guests receive a tailored diet, lifestyle and supplement plan with a handful of practical achievable recommendations to get them started during their stay and a more detailed plan to continue at home.

Live seminars, cooking demonstrations and wellness cuisine

Anantara has underpinned the new offering by introducing wellness breakfast and beverage menus – developed by Manning and the resorts’ chefs – with healthy dishes for lunch, dinner and snacks coming soon.

Guests at the three resorts can also enhance their experience by joining Manning’s informative health and nutrition seminars, including:

Simple Tips for Eating Healthily - designed to end mealtime chaos and quick fix options and develop a planned balanced diet–Nutrition; Sleep Health and Creating Evening Rituals - investigates the correlation between nutrition, sleep and overall wellbeing

Peak Performance Nutrition - identifies nutrition strategies through diet, vitamins, minerals and herbs to increase immunity and energy levels and reduce stress.

Sessions include cooking demonstrations and tastings and can be attended as a group or booked privately for a personalised session. Prices start from US$50 (€42, £36) per person for 90 minutes.

Anantara is encouraging resort guests to round off their nutritional rejuvenation journeys by taking advantage of each resort’s luxury spa and wellness offerings.
