The Ultimate Sauna and Steam Room Indulgence

Named the Best New Luxury Hotel of 2018 by the team at Luxury Travel Intelligence, this adults-only boutique resort is home to 15 one- and two-bedroom overwater residences and a central Retreat. The resort is an eco-conscious, ultra-luxury property operating on an all-inclusive basis: “Embracing all hallmarks of luxurious living”, offering guests only the very best experiences and facilities – including the stunning world-class Sulha Spa, featuring a sauna and steam room by FinnSauna.

We can proudly say that FinnSauna was chosen for the project from among several market-leading contractors, securing the opportunity to design and install the sauna and steam room for this absolutely breathtaking destination’s spa.

Sulha Spa at Kudadoo Maldives Private Island received the flattering 2019 Best Luxury Wellness Spa in the Maldives award from the prestigious World Luxury Spa Awards organisation.*

While all our customers receive the same high-quality service with our ‘no cutting corners’ principle and professional approach, this particular undertaking made our hearts beat just that much faster.

The client had a clear goal in mind: create a sauna and steam room to perfectly fulfil the Sulha Spa’s purpose ‒ “to uplift, replenish and create an experience of wellness for your mind and body”, and to complement their exquisite Himalayan salt chamber.

The sauna’s panelling and benching were custom-made from Finnish Aspen, imported directly from Finland, and totally free of knots as per the client’s request. The two-tier U-shaped benching comfortably accommodates ten to twelve bathers. An in-built, Finnish-made Harvia electric heater with stones provides the heating. Guests especially enjoy the two windows that allow natural lighting and exceptional views of the Indian Ocean.

The steam room’s curved ceiling features embedded fibre optic lighting. The benching, wall and ceiling modules in the steam room were custom-made in Finland and lined with high-quality imported ceramic tiles. Matching imported ceramic floor tiles of the very best quality were used in the sauna and steam room, and both rooms have glass doors and -fronts that add to the sense of space, light and luxury. 

The design and implementation stages of this project progressed very much like those for any of our other clients, the only difference being the geographic distance and complex logistics involved:

  • Initial contact and options explored.
  • Full briefing on the client’s requirements and goals.
  • Concept design and preliminary plans.
  • Finalised plans with 3D designs, technical specifications and costings. (The last two of the five images below depict 3D renditions of the design.)
  • Logistics: materials, tools and other resources located to the site.
  • Doing the FinnSauna magic …
  • Bask in the client’s delight with the project’s outcome.

“Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi is thrilled and proud to have been named Robb Report’s Best of the Best 2019. Robb Report is the unquestioned authority on the luxury lifestyle with its razor-sharp focus on the world’s very best products and experiences that those with a desire to live life to the fullest seek.” **
