Four Seasons Resort Maldives at LandaaGiraavaru
Welcome to one of the world’s most beautiful islands: a natural UNESCO Biosphere Reserve wilderness where tiffany blues, jungle greens and dazzling whites meet innovation, conservation and wellness with equal, vibrant intensity. Soar through the skies in our Flying Triggerfish seaplane, “fly” over corals in the world-exclusive DeepFlight submarine, rehabilitate sea turtles in our Marine Discovery Centre then connect to the buzz of Blu Beach Club. Discover the life-changing benefits of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy at The Spa & Ayurvedic Retreat – named “Most Meaningful Experience” in the Condé Nast Traveller Spa Awards 2020 – the largest known population of manta rays, and the country’s widest selection of water sports at the extraordinary island of Landaa.
One can get a close view of the corals in a DeepFlight submarine, a breath-taking experience at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at LandaaGiraavaru. The hour-long underwater adventure for two, in addition to an experienced pilot, descends 120 feet below the surface at the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve home to a huge variety of marine biodiversity in its many vibrant reefs. Up in the air, view the string of islands in the hotel’s Flying Triggerfish seaplane.
InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau
Raa Atoll, a popular dive area due to its submerged islands and excellent marine life, is another UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau. A leisurely holiday here extends opportunities in contributing to marine life conservation, including adopting a manta, and a fascinating excursion to Hanifaru Bay, the famous nursery ground for grey sharks.
Simple but extraordinary, inspired on the Mediterranean Sea with contemporary twist on the classic Spanish tapas and flavours, guests will embark on a culinary journey from the top of the Lighthouse with a pre dinner drink and exclusive 360 degree views of the Indian Ocean, followed by a curated private dining experience or a social sharing dinner at the main restaurant area.
The Maldives continues to be summer’s lingering kiss, gurgling with fresh ways to celebrate the sea, and the many stylish serendipities on it. ◼
