Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa, Maldives
Written by Antoní Loza
It’s possible: honeymooners and families holidaying in the Maldives can live in total harmony – just ask Four Seasons Kuda Huraa.
Kuda Huraa, meaning ‘little island’ in Dhivehi, is quaintness perfected. The property’s design intelligently maximises the island’s space; each beach bungalow is neatly tucked in clusters of tropical vegetation where guests can relish total privacy in their island-chic accommodation.
For guests preferring the stylish water villas, expect infinite views of several shades of blue, not to mention the phenomenal sunrises and sunsets.
The beaches – there are two, one facing sunrise, the other facing sunset – are of fine white sand and the stuff of postcards. One is perfect for snorkelling (thanks to the resort’s marine conservation programme, it’s like swimming in an aquarium); the other is larger and offers all the possible water activities and sports you can think of. If you’re interested in surfing, the resort is located near six quality surf breaks and has its own dedicated surf school, teaching ages six and up – suitable for beginners or seasoned professionals.
Whether visiting Kuda Huraa for a romantic getaway or a family adventure, the attentive and discreet Four Seasons staff will meet your every need. Parents can indulge in the award-winning Island Spa – the only spa in the Maldives located on a private island – or perhaps just unwind for a few hours on a hammock with the knowledge that their children will be treated like little royalty and will never have a dull moment at the Kuda Mas Kids’ Club, where marine education – not just a bunch of fun – features prominently.
Variety, as the saying goes, is the spice of life – and that is the true beauty of this paradise resort. No matter what your dream holiday looks like, or whom you wish to share it with, the Kuda Huraa family will do everything necessary to ensure that you have memories to last a lifetime.
