Natures wonders compete with creature comforts in this secluded, tropical island setting.
Have you ever wanted to be stranded on a desert island, but without having to sacrifice a smidge of luxury in the process? This Four Seasons can bring that very fantasy to life. Set within a Maldives paradise of white sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters and lush jungle foliage, this resort welcomes couples, families and adventure seekers with curated extras to make every stay feel tailor-made. The resort sits in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and the opportunities for unparalleled diving and snorkeling abound. Of note is the exclusive Manta Ray Scientist for a Day program, where guests can learn all about these intriguing creatures.
Each of the 103 oceanfront villa and bungalow accommodations is its own sanctuary with stunning views through floor-to-ceiling windows, lush gardens, al fresco showers, private pools and in some cases, sand-floor living/dining spaces that open directly onto the beach. House dining wows with Arabian cuisine at Al Barakat, dishes from both east and west at Café Landaa, prime cuts and Asian fare right on the sand at Fuego Grill and Italian specialties at Blu. Of the four bars, Seabar stands out with its private, cushioned decks overhanging the water. House spa Landaa Giraavaru, the Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat, uses organic products and its over-water locale to encourage sublime relaxation.
