Situated on a private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, yet only a 25-minute boat ride from Malé International Airport, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa blends the warmth and intimacy of a traditional Maldivian village with five-star luxury and service. There are accommodations on the beach (set amongst lush, flowering gardens) or floating water bungalows with stunning ocean views. A majority of the 96 units—built from indigenous materials including teak, thatch and coral—offer a private plunge pool, and all incorporate spa-worthy open-air showers.
On property, guests can sip cocktails in the golden glow of the Sunset Lounge or savor one of four world-class restaurants (Baraabaru, the Indian specialty restaurant, is a standout). The hotel’s award-winning Night Spa offers moonlit massages that begin at 10pm and last for two and half hours.
Below, hotel manager David Emig tells DuJour about the most sought-after room on the property.
The most requested room:
The Sunrise Water Bungalow and Two-Bedroom Water Suites.
What makes it so special:
From these rooms you have a beautiful panoramic view of the natural lagoon, the waves breaking in the distance and open ocean as far as the eye can see. Another draw to these bungalows are the marine life that swims by throughout the day and night. You are facing into the atoll instead of the open ocean and in the direction of the setting sun.Directly underneath the room, the water is clear with the slightest azure tint.
The average rate for the suite is between $6,000 and $8,000 depending on the season.
Your personal favorite:
Personally I like room 216.
This is one of our Beach Bungalows. We have a coral reef which runs along the island from the main swimming pool until just past 216, so you can snorkel to your doorstep. Directly outside the front door of the room, there’s a large Wild Randia tree. From dusk until dawn the tree’s white flowers bloom, secreting a sweet jasmine-like fragrance.
It doesn’t matter who the person is, the confidentiality of our guests is paramount.
What is probably the most noteworthy thing about our property is that for the past four years we’ve hosted a surf competition with our partners at Tropic Surf. We invite surf champions from around the world to stay, compete and enjoy luxury surfing in the Maldives.
