The Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru is known by many as the #1 resort in the Maldives, so of course we had to make a reservation during our 2 weeks checking out different atolls to critically confirm which we liked best. Besides the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, we also got to review the fairly new Park Hyatt Hadahaa. Side by side they are apples to oranges, Park Hyatt’s romantic seclusion of a tiny island compared to lots of activities for the entire family albeit total luxury on a much grander scale at the Four Seasons. But enough of comparisons, this review will be focused on the Four Seasons Maldives.
Sunset Water Villa with Pool #417
Everyone going to the Maldives must stay in an overwater villa at least once and this resort does it best with secluded full ocean views facing the most spectacular sunsets. Walking into the room it’s impossible to look away from the view of the floor to ceiling sliding door windows facing the ocean. So naturally we walk outside to our deck to see a private fresh water infinity pool with steps that lead you directly into the sea. The patio is very large and spacious with an over-water net resting area with even less separating you from the clear turquoise blue water beneath you. Looking up there is a spiral staircase that leads you to a private loft perfect for watching the Indian ocean as the sun goes down.
The room itself is stunning. High wooden ceilings with a spacious sitting area next to one of the most comfortable King sized beds I’ve slept on and I’ve very picky when it comes to mattresses. Behind the bedroom is a large walk in closet big enough to fit our 3+ full sized luggages. The bathroom is sleek and contemporary finished with polished concrete with the top-of-the-line Kohler overflowing bathtub and indoor and outdoor showers. When using the toilet you’ll be entertained with the window looking down to the fishes swimming below you.Read More »
