The deluxe property, Intercontinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort has welcomed a new appointment with Tati Nurhayati, who steps in as the Spa Manager of the award-winning Overwater AVI Spa. Bringing over 20 years of global experience and expertise in the Spa and Wellness industry, Tati has previously filled numerous roles across the Maldives, Africa and in her homeland, Indonesia.
Tati is especially passionate about skincare and how it influences general well-being with her interests focused on alternative healing methods and holistic wellness approaches. She enthused “The skin is the largest organ of a body, and naturally the state of our skin has an impact on our overall well-being and life quality. Nowadays, we know that stress, environmental influences, and our diet impact our skin's health. So, it is only natural to make this a focus of a spa treatment."
Uplifting wellness programmes further, the resort has unveiled its lineup of visiting practitioners who will be arriving at the resort to enhance guest experiences and wellness portfolio throughout the year.
In May, the resort will welcome renowned Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Jing Yang Zhao who travels around the world to heal patients.
