Perched in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the thousands of islands that make up the Maldives offer everything you could ask for from an island idyll. And, with over 50 years’ experience of creating wonderful holidays, Four Seasons Resorts are perfectly placed to help you get the best from your island break
Just a 25-minute speedboat ride from the capital, Malé, the garden island resort of Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kudaa Huraa is the perfect place to escape from the world. The Island Spa, which offers wellbeing classes and pioneering treatments, is located on its very own island – making it unique in The Maldives. There is also daily Sunrise yoga, allowing you to start your day in the best possible way.
The Maldives are famous for their mass gatherings of manta rays, and at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru you can learn all about the fascinating animals at the Marine Discovery Centre, the Maldives' only full-time manta ray research project. June to October is the prime time to see these rays in the wild, and the resort organises guided underwater tours so you can experience these elusive creatures up close and personal.
Kudaa Huraa plays host to the annual Four Seasons Surfing Champions Trophy, and it’s the perfect place to brush up on your skills, or even take to a board for the first time. The resort’s Surf School caters to everyone, whether you want a quiet lesson on the lagoon or to be let loose on the superb ‘breaks’, which are just a quick boat ride away.
Far from being just for honeymooners, the Four Seasons Resorts Maldives have plenty on offer to entertain younger members of the family. At the Marine Discovery Centre on Landaa Giraavaru there is a dedicated children’s section where they can visit the hand-reared turtle hatchlings and get hands-on with sea cucumbers and starfish. The Surf School at Kudaa Huraa offers six-and-over lessons in the private lagoon, while scuba and snorkelling classes allow kids to explore beneath the waves. Four to 12-year-olds can also make the most of the action-packed Kids’ Club programme, with activities ranging from parasailing to junior spa sessions and, of course, menus to suit the pickiest of palates.
If there are just two of you on your break, both Four Seasons’ resorts have everything you might possibly wish for. From secluded candle-lit beach dinners (or even a meal floating in the middle of the ocean) to Champagne sunset cruises and couples’ massages, the natural beauty of the Maldives combines with the hospitality and experience of the Four Seasons Resorts to make your holiday one in a million.
