Most of these resorts are clustered in Male Atoll, South Male Atoll, North and South Ari Atolls and to a lesser extent in Raa and Baa Atolls and Lhaviyani Atoll, and the least in Raafu, Vaavu, Meemu and Seenu Atolls. As almost all of these resorts feature spas it can be said that many excellent spas are also found where there is the greatest concentration of resorts.

As treatments menus are designed for the diverse clientele that seek relaxation in the Maldives, they are a mix of eastern and western treatments. Baros Maldives is a well known Maldives spa resort set in a small coral island in the Indian Ocean.
