Our top six standout, sweetest suites to whet your vacation-dreaming appetite
BEST FOR THE VIEW(S)
The Explorer Suite, Four Seasons Explorer
All of our suites feature exceptional views of the famous Maldivian blues (a seamless meeting of sky and sea), but with The Explorer Suite, you’ll be treated to a different one every morning. That’s right: not only is The Explorer Suite currently the most opulent way to cruise the Maldives, it’s also the best way to pack your Insta with a daily-changing scroll of morning vistas, without leaving your Four Seasons bed, private sun-deck or in-suite lounge.
Covering up to 4 atolls across its 3-, 4- and 7-night odysseys, the vessel often sails under the cover of darkness, so you’ll wake up in a different spot, ready for another day of diving, water sports and remote island stop offs.
BEST FOR THE ROYAL TREATMENT
Two-bedroom Royal Beach Villa, Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa
An opulent pad on the beach for up to four adults and two children, Kuda Huraa’s Two-Bedroom Royal Beach Villa offers a wealth of outdoor living spaces cooled by sea breezes. Bask on your own stretch of white sand complete with sun loungers and a gazebo. Cool down in the tropical garden and 35m² infinity pool (with ‘over-water’ dining table). Retreat to a shaded day bed or picture-perfect undholi (traditional wooden swing).
Then spread out in the 200 m² interior, complete with two bedrooms and two bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers. It’s a style-conscious option for the regally minded and includes butler services (if you’re not already travelling with your own…).
BEST FOR THE INDECISIVE
Three-bedroom Land & Ocean Suite, Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru
With the Three-Bedroom Land & Ocean, there’s no need to fall victim to the Maldivian vacation conundrum of “beach or over-water?”. Despite their central spot, these two suites are among the most private of all the Resort’s accommodation, tucked away along an exclusive jungle path.
With 400 m² of exterior space to a generous 280m² interior, these suites are designed for outdoor living – and with a setting like this, you wouldn’t want it any other way… The jungle opens onto soft white sand and gorgeous Arabic-style open-plan living/dining pavilion with library, kitchenette and bathroom. A wooden walkway leads you to a 36m² over-water pool, nets, sun decks and loungers, before continuing to two lagoon-top en-suite sleeping pavilions, separated by a shaded dining pavilion – the perfect spot for an in-villa breakfast, followed by a dip in the lagoon down the table-side steps.
BEST FOR OVER-WATER LIVING
Three Bedroom Water Suite, Four Seasons Kuda Huraa
The Three-Bedroom Water Suite with Pool at Kuda Huraa is an evolution in over-water living. Spanning nearly 800 m2, the suite is centred around an open-plan space looking out to spacious wooden sun decks, complete with loungers and huge over-water sunbathing nets. Easing the transition between indoor and outdoor living, contemporary interiors inspired by the vibrant garden-fresh colours of Kuda Huraa perfectly co-exist with the infinite shades of the surrounding blue lagoon. A handmade Maldivian thatch roof and distinctive architectural detailing draw on the traditions of generations of local craftsmen.
Sip on sundowners in the extra-long infinity pool parallel to the sea. Indulge in treatments and yoga from The Island Spa on your private ocean-side deck. Bring the finest Resort’s dining to the doorstep with under-the-stars dinners in the water-edge living pavilion. Or descend the steps directly into the warm crystal-clear Maldivian waters to swim towards the horizon or for a moonlit midnight dip.
BEST FOR IN-SUITE WATERFALLS
Three Bedroom Landaa Estate, Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru
There’s water, water everywhere – and serious ‘wows’ at every turn – in this spectacular one-of-a kind set up! Step from the crystal waters of the lagoon adjacent to your private 80-metre white sandy beach straight to a 25-metre swimming pool, then ascend the steps to an open-air Stargazing Lounge, complete with snuggly sofas and a covered plunge pool that cascades via a dramatic waterfall into the main swimming pool below. A whopping 2000 m2 of private quarters and grounds includes a stunning master bedroom – complete with lounge and dressing area, plus en-suite bathroom with sunken marble bath and pretty shower garden – plus two further en-suite bedrooms.
In addition, the vast beachfront haven showcases a breathtaking flowing ‘indoor-outdoor’ design: unobstructed ocean views combined with a massive sense of space, large sandy frontage, and wall-less living accommodation to bring the outdoors in and fully immerse guests in the absorbing beauty of the surrounding Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
