With a lush jungle interior and a sparkling lagoon, Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru is a sophisticated Maldives resort with fantastic facilities situated on 44 acres of unspoilt tropical island in the remote Baa Atoll. A scenic seaplane ride away from Male Airport, this verdant, beach-fringed coral island embraces both idyllic, away-from-it-all retreat and sophisticated pleasures on land and water – from genuine ayurvedic healing in the spa to splashing, sailing or diving in the jewel-like Indian Ocean and Maldives’ most pristine lagoon.
Accommodations in hotel Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru
The entire resort is built following traditional Maldivian architectural principles, from the concept of individual domains rather than guestrooms to the 45 degree pitched thatched roofs, and the use of coral walls. Entry to each residential domain is via its own turquoise gate with traditional Maldivian style coral walls and lush vegetation guaranteeing complete privacy. Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru received approval from the Maldivian Government to recycle the coral used from a redevelopment project and painstakingly revived the ancient Maldivian building techniques on the external walls of the villas. Dense surrounding foliage complements the Resort’s intricate thatched roof pavilions to ensure that the focus remains firmly on the natural landscape, one of Landaa Giraavaru’s most important features.
The 102 thatched beach and water villas, including two unsurpassed land and ocean villas, offer features such as private plunge pools and generous outdoor living spaces gazing across the tranquil lagoon. A turquoise gate with traditional Maldivian-style coral walls stands at the entry to each domain, while lush vegetation guarantees complete privacy.
Living spaces are refreshed by sea breezes in an open-air bale (traditional thatched hut), while guests can sleep in air-conditioned comfort in teak-furnished sleeping pavilions. Wireless high-speed Internet service and plasma televisions add the comprehensive Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru dimension to this untamed tropical setting.
Off-shore, guests have the opportunity to experience the Maldives by sea aboard the exclusive Four Seasons Explorer.
