Discover a more intense experience of nature at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, in the remote Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Fringed by a pristine two-kilometre lagoon and surrounded by more than a kilometre of powder-soft, white sand beaches, this 18-hectare coral island lies in some of the richest waters in the country. Snorkel with turtles, eagle rays and manta rays in Coral Gardens boosted by the country’s largest coral reefscaping project. Spend your days in the lush surroundings of wellbeing haven, AyurMa, diving in the surrounding aquarium-like waters, or enjoying specialities such as teppanyaki, Lebanese mezze and tandoori.
AyurMa is a tranquil haven upheld by the four pillars of planetary wellbeing, Ayurveda, yoga therapy and wellness, supported by an award-winning team of physicians, naturopaths and yoga therapists. Set in a lush setting that spans from the crystal lagoon to the heart of the island, it encourages guests to ‘love the planet as they love themselves’ through consultations and treatments integrated with yoga and Ayurvedic cuisine meal plans.
The Resort's Marine Discovery Centre runs pioneering conservation projects on turtle conservation, fish breeding and coral reefscaping and works with experts from The Manta Trust, who have identified the world’s largest known population of manta rays in local waters. You will have the chance to go on an experience you will never forget, as you snorkel and watch these graceful animals glide through the water. Children will enjoy learning about the fragile yet breath-taking ecosystem of the Maldives with resident marine biologists, alongside a multitude of age-specific activities at the Kids' Club. Teenagers won't feel left out either, as they get to hang out with a movie, embark on cool wakesurfing parties, play computer games, have a game of pool, or take a serious step towards a career in marine biology with new trainee marine biologist modules.
