and live on Freeview channel 276
Maya Jama is enjoying some downtime before her “hectic” summer work schedule. The Love Island host, 28, from Bristol, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share that she has flown to Thailand on a solo trip for a wellness retreat.
After missing her flight early Tuesday morning, the former radio host revealed that she had made it on board the next one. She posted a selfie to her stories, writing: “Off on an exciting journey to 🧘🏻♀️😂” At the time, she did not reveal her destination, but hinted that she would be taking some time for self care with an emoji of someone doing yoga.
She then returned to her stories to share that she had slept for the entire 10 hours of her long-haul flight. She wrote: “Def just slept 10 hours…an achievement.”
It was only when she tagged her location in the next story as she sat in a taxi, that she revealed that she had travelled to Thailand. For her long-haul flight, Maya opted for matching black comfy joggers and a sweatshirt, paired with Nike trainers.
Whilst making her journey to her accommodation, Maya shared a quote from No.1 New York Times and international bestselling author, James Caster. It said: “Something I’ve heard recently and I’ve tried to adopt wherever possible: ‘Whoever has the most fun, wins’.”
Captioning the post the TV presenter added: “Been my life motto. But this week I chose to come to Thailand alone for a wellness retreat for a week, before everything gets hectic with work again.”
She then revealed that this is her choice, “instead of a party in America” as she’s “trying to master balance.” She added: “Small bit of growth.”
Maya has continued to share glimpses of her lavish wellness retreat on social media, from photos of her beautiful accommodation to short clips of bike rides around the grounds of the retreat.
She revealed that her jet-lag was affecting her ability to sleep, and she struggled to wake up on time for scheduled yoga classes. Maya shared a selfie in bed at 5.45am, which she captioned: “My body is not on any time zone, really tried to get an early night, but I’ve got yoga in an hour so it’s looking all nighter-ish.😂”
Maya has travelled to several destinations across the world, since the winter series of Love Island ended in March. She has been sharing a glimpse into her glamorous travels on social media, which has included Paris, New York and most recently China.
The next summer series of Love Island is set to kick-off on 5 June 2023.
