Huvafen Fushi, a luxury resort in the Maldives that claims to have the world's first underwater spa, is offering an innovative new menu of wellness packages.

The spa, named 'Lime', has added new treatments like Lose It, Tone It; Cellulite Therapy and Stress Buster, ABC News reported.

The spa also has above-water treatment rooms for those who would rather be pampered above sea level.

The underwater treatment rooms, which took 12 months to construct, are made of a solid-cast resin to create an underwater structure that could be set in the open ocean with minimal disturbance to the ecosystem of the Maldives.

According to the hotel the resin is five inches thick and it provides infinitely better clarity than the cheaper option of laminated glass.

The island nation is also home to the world's first underwater restaurant: Ithaa at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. (ANI)
