Launch of Capella’s brand new sister brand in the Maldives with a distinct wellness concept
Capella Hotel Group has unveiled the first facility of its sister brand Patina Hotels & Resorts in the peaceful setting of North Male Atoll in the Maldives.
Designed as an ultra-luxurious lifestyle brand for progressive travelers of a new generation, Patina is a thoughtful sister to Capella, with the potential for the two to be exploited close by.
Inaugural property Patina Maldives, Fari Islands is designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan – founder of Studio MK27 – to play on ideas of duality, human connection, biophilia and holistic health. Accommodation consists of 90 one, two and three bedroom villas as well as 20 Fari studios.
Patina’s concept of well-being, Flow, “has a curious and adventurous character represented by the phrase” state of mind, body and play “,” said Nick Clayton, CEO of Capella, addressing exclusively at Spa company.
“Health and lifestyle experts known as ‘resident hackers’ schedule wellness trips at Flow. This can include treatments that improve cellular health, such as lymphatic drainage, or sessions incorporating technologies such as hyperbaric chambers, sound and light rooms.
“The fitness equipment also has a playful element and there is an herbal restaurant concept called Roots.”
Spanning 1,500 m², the Flow spa in Patina Maldives offers a host of curative and preventative remedies to help heal clients through sound, touch and smart technology.
Facilities include six double treatment rooms, a Watsu treatment room, flotation room, steam room, sauna, hydrotherapy pools, and salon services.
Guests are also offered spa rituals powered by the home of Malibu Osea seaweed products, biohacking applications such as sound immersion therapy, and exclusively designed vitamin blends provided by Nourished – the creators of Custom 3D printed “gummy stacks” of nutritional supplements.
Personal growth is further encouraged by access to sleep therapists, nutritionists, Reiki practitioners and posture specialists.
Sofija Misljenovic runs the new establishment as director of well-being. She has been tasked with launching a new wave of integrative wellness therapies in the Maldives – combining ancient and modern techniques to help achieve optimal balance for the well-being of clients.
Misljenovic has 15 years of global experience in the wellness industry, including time with luxury brands such as Hyatt, Kempinski, Marriott and Westin.
After debuting in the Maldives this month, Patina will open in Bali, Japan and China over the next five to ten years.
