What a decadence! Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita has introduced a new eight-handed massage at its overwater spa atop the glorious Indian ocean. Named “Let it Go,” the treatment is the first of its kind to be offered in Mauritius, and makes the resort one of few in the world to offer such luxury. Available as both a 60 minute and a 90 minute option, Let it Go comprises the fluid and harmonious motions of four therapists to stimulate energy across the body to help achieve a total sense of rejuvenation.
“To be able to provide our guests with this new treatment is really a special accomplishment,” comments Spa Director Constance Chapalain. “It is something much more than a massage; it is an experience that promotes overall wellbeing and has been especially created for those who need to ‘let it go,’ but who struggle to find relaxation. The perfect synergies of this eight-handed massage are comparable to a dancer’s choreography; fluid, soothing and emotionally releasing.”
Originating from the ancient Ayurvedic philosophy, the eight-handed massage has been derived from the techniques of the four-handed massage and balances the body’s energies, while relaxing the mind. The 60 minute treatment is available for MUR 26,000 ($732) and the 90 minute treatment is available for MUR 36,000 ($1,014). Of course by default, you’ll be springing for the 90-minute version if you’ve already come this far.
