North Male Atoll, Maldives
A short speedboat ride away from Maldives’ capital, Malé lies Four Seasons Kuda Huraa, a luxury, tropical escape set on a 12-acre island. This charming and sophisticated resort has the ambience of a Maldivian Village within luxurious surroundings.
There are 96 elegant and good-sized thatched-roof villas, bungalows and suites. All feature timber floors, and natural fabrics and furnishings. Water bungalows raised on stilts over the lagoon are terribly romantic, while the two-bedroom Royal Beach Villa, set on its own stretch of beach and with a pool is simply stunning and ideal for families looking for the ultimate in luxury accommodation.
Kuda Huraa has four award-winning restaurants, which include Indian fine dining at Baraabaru and a more casual experience at Reef Club Italian restaurant. A sumptuous breakfast buffet is served in overlooking the lagoon at Café Huraa.
Kuda Huraa is in a top surf spot and has its own surf school. Learning to surf here is a must for adventure-seekers. Dive in one of the world’s top diving spots, go on a shark safari or island-hopping by seaplane. For a truly unforgettable experience you can swim with Manta Rays. Plenty of watersports are available including parasailing, windsurfing and jet skis.
There are three pools on the island including a pool exclusively for adults, where swimming swim after dark is a must. Land based activities include tennis on courts situated on a neighbouring island accessible by boat. There is also a gym. For the ultimate pampering, there is a spa on its own island, a minute’s boat ride away. A treatment in the Night Spa is wonderfully unique experience.
Renowned for the attention it gives to younger guests, Kuda Huraa is hugely family-friendly and a wonderful luxury family holiday destination, even for those with babies. As well as luxury amenities, a kids’ club and babysitting, there are so many things to keep entertained, from surfing and snorkeling to cooking lessons. There is also an in-house doctor.
