Welcome to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa, a slice of preserved paradise
Four Seasons is a name synonymous with sophisticated style and impeccable service. A place where unique is the norm, and where lasting memories are made. In the Maldives, these attributes add up to the trip of a lifetime. The tropical paradise of Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa welcomes guests from their brief 25-minute trip from the airport onto an intimate, flower-strewn island fringed by postcard-perfect waters, where natural beauty abounds.
Villas here are designed to marry traditional Maldivian architecture (thatch and timber to the fore) to understated style. If your want is for a villa set on its own stretch of gloriously soft sand, take your pick from beach pavillions and beach bungalows, both with spacious gardens and plunge pools. The larger Family Beach Bungalow with Pool boasts an adjoining study room with a single bed and pull-out underbed – great for larger families, as is the Two-Bedroom Royal Beach Villa, which houses a wonderful infinity-edged pool in its secluded garden, green-fringed garden.
Making the most of their stunning ocean-side setting are the Two– and Three-Bedroom Water Suites with Pool, and a Family Water Villa with Pool that is out on its own (in more ways than one) at the far end of a jetty. Just try and prise your kids from the suite’s incredible sunken children’s room, with its wall of windows framing the turquoise lagoon and its multi-hued inhabitants.
This is paradise for budding surfers. On-site surf pros offer classes for guests aged six and above, either in the resort’s lagoon or just a short distance out, where six quality breaks beckon. For the more advanced and adventurous, a private Seaplane Safari can be booked, during which the pros will take you to the Maldives’ most spectacular swells. The daring will also love performing over-the-ocean acrobatics with X-Jetpacks and Jetblades.
Catering to four to 12 year-olds with a complimentary daily programme of exciting events and activities (snorkelling with a marine biologist, cooking classes with the resort’s chefs), Kuda Mas Kids’ Club is where your little ones will want to spend their days. Team up again to enjoy a sunset cruise, accompanied by leaping dolphins, before a family dinner at Reef Club. You’ll enjoy fine-dining Italian dishes while the kids tuck into homemade pizzas and pastas.
The Island Spa is unique – the only spa in the Maldives located on its own island, accessible only by boat. On arrival you’ll disembark into lush gardens which reveal seven over-water treatment pavilions. Come 10pm, The Island Spa closes to give way to The Night Spa, open to just one person or couple to indulge in a beneath-the-stars spa ritual. Memorable.
