Dreaming of a luxury trip to the Maldives this year? We don’t blame you. Few places in the world offer quite the same level of luxury and opulence, combined effortlessly with the natural beauty of these paradisiacal islands – and from destination weddings to honeymoons, there is no better place to get away from it all after a somewhat unusual year.
Its pristine white sands, fringed with verdant green coconut trees and edged by crystal clear waters, offering some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world, attract thousands of wealthy visitors each year who are looking to relax, unwind, and take a much-needed break. And, famed for its lavish water bungalows and personal butler services as standard, it’s little wonder it has become a playground for the rich and famous.
If you’re visiting for a special occasion, then a visit to Coco Chic, the island’s one-stop luxury beauty destination, is a must. Located in the densely-populated capital of Malé, the thriving, mercantile heart of this picturesque island nation, it’s the perfect place for a pit-stop on your way to one of the Maldives’ many atolls, or a day trip by seaplane to immerse yourself in the local culture before heading for a spot of pampering.
This highly sought-after facility offers some of the most cutting-edge aesthetic treatments in the world and caters to hair, skin, and all your pampering needs, too.
Featuring three separate floors, each specifically designed to cater for a different element of customers’ complete care, this place doesn’t do things by halves. Prepare to spend the entire day, because we can guarantee, you won’t want to leave.
The third floor, dedicated to all things hair and beauty, is the perfect place to get that bridal blow-out ahead of your wedding day. And, with a private bridal room, which also doubles as a VIP area, here you are in the best of hands. Out on the main floor, this unisex facility offers separate areas for ladies and gents, with leading brands such as Balmain Paris Hair Couture, Kerastase and L’Oreal featuring in treatments to ensure the very best of results.
Head down to the second floor, and it’s all about skin. Featuring the Coco Chic Skin Clinic, the first aesthetic clinic of its kind in the Maldives, here you can get all of the necessary treatments like waxing, threading and eyelash extensions, as well as some more specialist luxury treatments that will leave you looking fresh-faced and years younger for your big day.
Clients can choose from Sothys and HydraFacials – both treatments favoured by A-list celebrities from across the globe. The clinic was also the first to offer cutting-edge cryotherapy treatments in the Maldives, which are globally acclaimed for muscle recovery, cellulite reduction and a range of other benefits.
From laser hair and wart removal to stretch mark, acne scar and pigmentation reduction, this opulent establishment has got you covered, so if you don’t have time to get everything done before you jet off on your holiday, then there’s no need to panic.
Of course, all of those aesthetic treatments need to be rounded off with some pure R and R, which is where the Coco Chic Wellness Spa comes in. Here, it’s time to sit back, relax and take some time out for yourself. A reviving detox in the steam room followed by a full-body spa treatment is our top pick – and don’t forget that mani and pedi because, on special occasions, it’s the little details that count.
Operating to the highest standards of the franchise brand, Bio Essentials, all therapists are rigorously trained by its international chain to ensure that the customer experience is nothing less than the best.
Coco Chic’s team of hairstylists, beauticians, spa therapists, nail technicians, nurses and doctors are all professionally trained and equipped with years of experience and knowledge in providing clients with the best possible care, using industry vetted products to ensure the best results. Brand include Balmain Hair Couture, Sothys, Oxygenceuticals (OxyCryo and Astrodome), Bio Essentials, O.P.I, Gellish and more.
Whatever your reason for being in the Maldives – special occasion or not – there’s nothing quite like spending an entire day at Coco Chic. From wedding up-dos to anniversary makeup, soothing massages and more, this is the place to treat yourself during your Maldivian getaway. Because, quite frankly, you deserve it.
