  • 2 x 90-minute immersive and soothing sound bath sessions for up to 20 guests, offering the chance to switch off the mind, open the heart and calm the spirit with a wave of therapeutic tones to balance the chakras. A moment in time for guests to be enveloped in the wave of therapeutic tones of singing bowls, it’s a session to reset and renew through a sound-induced meditative state.
  • 1 x cooking masterclass, focusing on delicious Ayurvedic recipes from East by West.
  • 1 x 60 to 90-minute Ayurveda masterclass, talking through the principles and ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Jasmine’s journey of discovery over the past few years.

For mother-nature and the environment around us, Gili commemorates Global Recycling Day on 18th March and Earth Hour on 24th March with exciting activities. They encourage you to think about the environment we live in and your well being, and participate in these environmental events with us. 

Gili also invites its guests to celebrate Earth Hour as they themed this day around coral conservation as they conserve the ocean life. Being the first resort in the Maldives to have a low-tech but high efficiency coral recovery project that involves rope, Gili will mark this day with focus on their coral line project. Their coral lines project started in 2014 and currently has 180 lines, each containing approximately 50 coral fragments. The nursery is home to more than 8,500 corals. These frames are in a sheltered site, with optimal current and lighting conditions.
Activities for the day includes Gili Coral Lines Workshop, Earth Hour Lights Off and movie screening of Chasing Corals documentary at the Jungle Cinema.

Discover how you can do your part with Gili and be conscious towards the earth as “Gili Gives Back” to the world we live in. 
On Global Recycling Day, as a continuous effort on their stand against plastic, the marine biology team at Gili Lankanfushi will be organizing an endurance event named “Paddle against plastic”.

A team of hosts from the resort will undergo a 12km Stand Up Paddle (SUP) to raise awareness about the overuse of single use plastic in the Maldives. This endurance event aims to inspire others to reduce their dependence on plastic by physically collecting plastic from ocean surface whilst undergoing an enduring paddle to recognize our dedication to the cause.
