Maldives Promotion House – The new Passport to Adventure program at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru introduces children aged 4 to 12 to the island’s extraordinary natural wonders through a series of exciting challenges, puzzles and activities.
Run by the Resort’s Kids Club, the program comprises up to eight daily activities alongside a “Passport” of puzzles, facts and challenges set by Kaku, the Resort’s hermit crab mascot. From Coral Reefscaping to Wishing Tree Walks, Dosha Discovery to Lizard Spotting, each day sees adventure challenges offered alongside activities ranging from herb hunts and mocktail making to snorkeling, kayaking and scavenger hunts. In addition to enjoying each activity, the completion of each related challenge earns children a stamp; seven or more stamps earn a toy, with the collection of all 14 stamps leading to ice-cream sundaes at Blu restaurant and Sunset Bar.
In addition to inspiring a passion for adventure and discovery, the program incorporates many of the Resort’s environmental initiatives. Children can build their own coral reef, feed the baby clownfish in the Fish Lab and visit the on-site Marine Discovery Centre, home to the atoll’s only Turtle Rehabilitation Centre.
“We wanted to create a program for kids that was above all unique and exciting,” explains the Resort’s General Manager and Regional Vice President Armando Kraenzlin. “Many of the families who visit us are very well travelled, with the children craving as much variety and adventure as the parents. Passport to Adventure combines exploration, conservation, crafts and sport into a fun and educational schedule that takes children to all corners of the Resort. It’s the kind of program that makes you want to be a kid again and is proving to be quite a hit with parents as well.”
As with the Kids Club program, children are free to join in as and when they like, from an hour at a time to all day every day. And with stamps available at designated points all over the Resort, they can even collect them when out and about with Mum and Dad.
Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru occupies 44-acres of natural wilderness within a two-kilometre lagoon in the Maldives only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Everything on the island invites discovery and exploration, from the pioneering Marine Discovery Centre and sprawling Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat to isolatedrestaurants hidden down dense jungle paths. Passport to Adventure weaves each of these elements into a schedule designed to keep even the most discerning young adventurer entertained from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, seven days a week. Inspiring and educational, each Passport also exists as a lovely vacation keepsake and includes a Certificate of Completion that is filled out at the end of each child’s stay.
