Cocoon Unveils the First Open Air Gym Design in the Country

PUBLISHED August 28, 2018

Cocoon Maldives in partnership with MyEquilibria, has unveiled Tree of Wellbeing, the first open-air design gym in the Maldives.

According to Cocoon, the gym is a groundbreaking new concept of physical fitness based on instinctive body movements which at first glance, looks more like a work of art than a place for exercise.

"As soon as I saw the MyEquilibria installation, I immediately fell in love with it," said Alex Azzola, the Managing Director of Cocoon.

"It has an incredible six-metre tree-like design, which creates a unique open-air space. Cocoon is the first design hotel in the Maldives, and so its natural that we have the first open-air design gym in the Maldives."

Engineered around the biomechanics of instinctive training, the Tree of Wellbeing was created by innovative designer Vito Di Bari, an innovative designer who is changing the world through his cutting edge design solutions. 

Vito has been defined as one of the three most important futurists in the world and uses scientific methods to develop creative solutions based on next-generation technologies and the newest materials, aimed to increase the quality of our everyday lives.

Located on the pristinely stunning island of Ookolhufinolhu in Lhaviyani Atoll, only a short 30-minute seaplane ride away from Velana International Airport, Cocoon Maldives is best described as an actualisation of a dream to create a unique designer resort that mixes luxury, design aesthetics, and hospitality into a unique tropical island paradise.

Designed by renowned Italian firm LAGO, Cocoons minimal interiors complement with furniture made from 200-year-old wildwood defer to the overwhelming beauty of the surrounding marine environment and lush green vegetation that envelope the whole island.

The resort also features an expansive reception pavilion, a dive centre, a spa, a lounge, library, gym and kids club, in addition to 150 villas on the beach or poised on stilts in the lagoon.
