Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru

Edged by flawless white beaches and a 2 kilometre lagoon, the island’s 44 acre interior hides vast guest accommodations and four isolated restaurants down lush jungle paths, inviting a real sense of exploration.

Discover nature at its purest on this remote island resort in the pristine Baa Atoll, the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Snorkel on the kaleidoscopic house reef and at nearby manta ray and turtle hotspots, or join pioneering conservation projects in the Marine Discovery Centre, including turtle rehabilitation, coral reefscaping, fish breeding and manta ray research. Immerse in the healing heart of the Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat with all-inclusive 7, 14 and 21 day programmes supported by two Ayurvedic physicians and Ayurvedic cuisine, or venture out with the PADI 5-star IDC Centre for dives in some of the most mesmerising waters in the world.

The resort’s 103 thatched bungalows, suites, villas and family accommodations dot the beautiful beach or perch over the lagoon. Reclaimed coral walls, teak furnishings and lush native vegetation provide an authentic natural setting; features range from sand-floored living rooms and sea-viewing lofts to spacious gardens and private infinity-edge pools. By night, enjoy contemporary Italian cuisine at Blu overlooking the shifting sands of the tranquil lagoon, step into Arabia at the over water Al Barakat, relax with your feet in the sand at Fuego’s grill, take the short sea walk to the Seabar or cruise to a secluded sandbank for the ultimate private dining experience.
