The Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences has introduced a new glamping experience that allows guests to overnight in a transparent bubble tent on the beach, delivering a castaway experience with five-star amenities. Jenny Southan provides information.
Following the Seaside Finolhu Maldives resort's lead last year, when it constructed a similar beach bubble hotel room, the Amilla has placed a "totally climate-controlled and weatherproof inflatable pod" for visitors seeking to rough it in style, complete with 360-degree views of tropical beauty.
Starting at US$750 a night, the Amilla Glamping bubble tent provides guests with all the conveniences of a deluxe hotel suite.
The pod, which is surrounded by coconut palms, pandan trees, and breadfruit trees, features a well-appointed bedroom. A basin and shower are located outside on the sand, while a toilet, indoor shower, plunge pool, steam room, and sauna are located nearby at Javvu Spa.
Guests can tailor their stay to their preferences by selecting from three Amilla Glamping packages. “Bubbles Stars” begins with canapés and a bottle of champagne, followed by a BBQ supper prepared by a private chef beneath the stars. Additionally, guests enjoy a 30-minute foot massage using organic coconut oil cultivated on the island.
Meanwhile, "Wellness Your Way" (from US$1,000 per night) offers a private beach BBQ including meals from Amilla's new 'Wellness Your Way' menu, which is keto, vegan, and lactose-free friendly.
Additionally, this package includes a choice of a "Body Pure" or a full-body Balinese massage, as well as a guided morning yoga session emphasizing breathing techniques and meditation.
The third option, "Moonlight Romance" (from US$1,000 a night), includes Amilla's 90-minute "Rose Quartz Heart" massage, which incorporates a natural aphrodisiac oil and Rose Quartz crystals.
Champagne and canapés are served beneath the stars, followed by a private chef-prepared candlelit barbeque supper. Breakfast is given each morning on the beach.
Amilla's bubble tent is also available for overnight stays starting at US$450, or for a private BBQ meal for two starting at the same price.
