Most island resorts in the Maldives require a sea plane to reach, however, with the Four Seasons Maldives Kuda Huraa, we were able to reach this beautiful 5-star resort in the Maldives by speedboat directly from Male. Here is a list of 5 things you need to know before you visit Maldives
The journey was only 30 minutes or so long and, as if organised by the Four Seasons, we were guided along the way by a pod of dolphins. If that wasn’t enough, we received an amazing welcome by the staff upon our arrival before we were escorted to our fabulous Sunset Water Villa just in time to watch the sun set.
Our Water Villa was a dream to stay in. The room had its very own private infinity pool that was great for capturing the sunset from. We had a lounging area and a ladder to go down to the inviting lagoon, which in the early part of the day was so low that you could walk knee high in. The water at the Four Seasons Maldives Kuda Huraa was one of the clearest and calmest that we’ve seen at the Maldives. It was so clear that when we walked along the pier, we could regularly see reef sharks and eagle rays swimming below us.
There were plenty of activities to partake in at the Four Seasons Maldives Kuda Huraa. They are the only Four Seasons property that have their own surfing school, the Surf Shack. We went on a Dolphin Sunset Cruise, which began with a 15-minute presentation at their Marine Discovery Centre to explain what type of marine life was in the area. We were so lucky on the cruise as came across a large pod of Spinner Dolphins. They’re an endangered species but apparently there are quite a lot in the Maldives. They took a lot of delight in showing us why they’ve earned their name by leaving out of the water at great heights and spinning with what could only be described as glee.
The staff at the Four Seasons Maldives Kuda Huraa were very attentive. They noticed I wear glasses and when I placed them by the sink in exchange for contacts before going out and when I returned to our villa, they had placed them in spectacles cases provided by them. It was a nice touch, and it’s always the little things that you remember. The Four Seasons Maldives Kuda Huraa was one of our favourite Maldives properties and one we highly recommend to anyone thinking of booking a holiday to Maldives.
Four Seasons Maldives Discovery Centre
The Four Seasons Maldives properties are in line with the prestigious hotel brand that we love and admire so much. Both of the Four Seasons Maldives resorts are big believers and activists in conservation with marine discovery centres set up on both islands. We were lucky enough to be able to visit one of the Four Seasons resorts in the Maldives on this particular trip and see first-hand the fabulous work they’re doing to rehabilitate wounded turtles to either the wild if they’re healthy enough, or to a loving home.
