      Due to the high demand for the Maldives, we have created a " perfect week in the Maldives" retreat just for you! We will greet you at the airport in Male, Maldives, and the rest will be taken care of for you. We will arrange your flights and transfers once you arrive in Male for all meals, activities, and excursions. This retreat is designed to give you plenty of rest and relaxation with none of the headaches of getting to this highly remote destination. 


      You will only be responsible for your international airfare, and we can help you arrange that. Due to the distance, some choose to add on an additional stop, such as Dubai, India, or Sri Lanka.


      We will be staying at the same hotel for the duration of the retreat, so you only have to pack once. No vaccines or visas are needed to enter Maldives. 

      Accommodations

      On this all-inclusive luxury wellness retreat, you will stay in a 5-star beach villa at the Alila Kothaifaru Maldives. You will enjoy excursions and wellness activities. This retreat is focused on relaxation to ensure you return home relaxed and rejuvenated. 


      Unwind in peaceful seclusion with awe-inspiring views at this all-pool-villa sanctuary. Our 11.2-hectare private island retreat lies at the northern edge of the Maldives in Raa Atoll, accessible via a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé. Lush vegetation, turquoise waters, and abundant marine life set the scene for a relaxing stay interspersed with adventure.


      Modernity and serenity combine at this idyllic destination:


      Seamlessly integrated into the landscape, the resort’s terraced pavilions and villas immerse guests in the natural surroundings and balance privacy with openness to the outdoors in a unique expression of minimalist elegance. Featuring contemporary interiors in a palette of soothing colors with natural textures, each of the resort’s 44 beachfront villas and 36 overwater villas comes with a private pool for your enjoyment. These spacious hideaways are carefully positioned to provide total privacy and comfort in an understated, sophisticated style.  


      A world-class destination for underwater adventure and exploration:


      Surrounded by a stunning house reef, Alila Kothaifaru Maldives offers guests serenity and adventure in the Raa Atoll, a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé. The primarily uninhabited chain of islands plays host to some of nature’s most spectacular wonders, and the Alila perfectly positions you to experience the best. Enjoy spectacular sunrise or sunset views from one of the 80 beachfront and overwater villas. Spend your days in the company of our certified marine experts as you explore the richness of the underwater world—from diving through incredible reefs teeming with schools of pelagic fish to snorkeling with hawksbill turtles and manta rays. Come evening, cast out on a sunset cruise, and enjoy cocktails at dusk in the company of spinner and bottlenose dolphins. Or head to nearby Vaadhoo island, where you can witness the extraordinary Sea of Stars phenomenon when bioluminescent phytoplankton in the island’s reef causes the sea to glimmer like the starry night sky.

      I really enjoyed the time in New Zealand. I was the youngest in the group, the only German and didn’t knew anyone from the group before the Trip but I always felt as a family member. Everyone was nice, open minded and heartwarming. Amy is such a nice person and motivated me a lot. We saw beautful places, had always good food and everything was taken care of. The choice of hotels was nice - all of them perfectly chosen. Yesterday I came back home - after a time of adventures with a lot of great memories and with new friends 🫶🏽

      As perfect a trip as I could have imagined! Amy and Brian were gracious and kind hosts...and Amy and her mom kept us well-fed! Chantel was an awesome yoga instructor--listened to us and catered classes to the needs of the group often based on our energy levels and physical challenges of the moment. She was also a supremely delightful traveling companion...driving us a total of nine hours in the van--back and forth to from SLC airport. A huge selling point for me was not having to arrange any transportation--bravo to Walker Wellness for creating a package that required extremely minimal extra out-of-pocket expenses. And the hiking, omg! Zion is deliriously beautiful and Bryce is downright Biblical in its majesty. The trip was also impeccably structured--a super challenging hike for the first full day and then a shorter hike that began later in the morning the following day with more time to rest in the afternoon.

      Wow! By far the trip to Zion was my best travel experience. The accommodations were very spacious, clean, and homey. Huge picture windows, a deck, hot tub, fire place, …The food was delicious and healthy. Amy is a great cook! The yoga was adjusted to what we needed prehike and post. It went beyond just yoga - there was sound healing, visualization, and more. Transportation to and from the parks made it easy for us. And did I mention the hikes? Stunning! Breath-taking! Fun! Lots of fond memories and I look forward to traveling with Brian and Amy again.

      Great trip. Beautiful hiking.
      By Lisa S for Zion National Park Hiking & Yoga on Oct 26, 2023
      This trip was beyond my expectations! It's rare to go on a trip where you only need to book a flight and after that every detail is handled for you. The accommodations were fantastic but the food was really the best part! I felt completely taken care of by the Walker Wellness Retreats team especially Shantel and Amber, who are delightful and talented people. I was able to relax, disconnect and get to know the wonderful group all while enjoying moving my body on the yoga mat and through breathtaking nature. Thank you to the whole crew at Walker Wellness Retreats for being so good at what you do!
