Published

on

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, recently opened the world’s first exclusive-use hideaway in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve: Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, Baa Atoll. Open as of December 1, 2016, Voavah is capturing the attention of families and groups the world over who are looking for a luxurious, secluded haven to call their own in one of the world’s most pristine locations. With seven bedrooms – two of which are specially designed for younger guests – a beach house, dive centre, 62-foot (18.9 metre) yacht and legendary Four Seasons staff on hand, the endless possibilities for adventure make for an ideal spring getaway.

An Island for All Ages

As the Private Island is solely available for exclusive use, younger guests can fashion adventures on a daily basis to keep the energy high. Kids can explore the island reef through personalised snorkeling or swimming classes, or become members of the PADI Seal Team through specialised lagoon-based “AquaMissions.” Turtle tours, island safaris in search of baby sharks and fruit bats, crab races and marine biology excursions allow families to deepen their exposure to the Maldives’ vibrant ecosystem.

There are also numerous opportunities to adopt a traditional way of life, from learning to fish off the jetty to building jungle dens. Kids can experience the magic of crystal singing bowls in an Ocean of Consciousness Kids Ritual or even join the team on a boat to Voavah’s picnic island, Baathala, for their own exciting Maldives Crusoe adventure.

Ocean adventures become a family experience, as beginner and experienced divers can swim among manta rays in Hanifaru, one of the world’s most renowned manta ray hotspots, or explore ghostly shipwreck ruins that dot the Indian Ocean seabed. While parents can become nitrox-certified and gain Master Scuba Diver certification through the PADI 5-Star Dive Centre, marine biologists and Manta Trust scientists are also available to guide younger guests’ exploration of ocean life, including observing and interacting with resident turtles.

Adventures All Aboard

At any point in their adventure, families can gravitate towards the Private Island’s exclusive luxury yacht, Voavah Summer, which can be used for impromptu dolphin cruises, fishing expeditions, nighttime snorkeling outings, daytime swims and overnight adventures. Families can choose from kitesurfing, Seabobs, parasailing, X-Jetblades, wakeboarding, wakeskating, kneeboarding, jet-skiing, water-skiing, kayaking, and windsurfing opportunities. Kayaks, catamarans, windsurfing boards and paddleboards are available to guests young and old.

While the Kids Explore

With expert one-hour, day-long or overnight child care available, parents are free to explore the island and surrounding waters on their own. They can wind down with bespoke over-water spa therapies and rituals, or with yoga, meditation and pranayama (breathing) classes at the on-site Ocean of Consciousness Spa. Ayurvedic physicians, acupuncturists and hair consultants are available on-call to meet with guests for consultations. A 20-minute boat ride away, the Spa & Ayurvedic Retreat at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru is also available to guests, offering chakra blessings and a jungle Night Spa.

Romantic possibilities abound: cocktails and secluded picnic dinners are available on a private sandbank or onboard the Voavah Summer. Poolside barbeques and beach parties are available for those looking to dine on a larger scale. Themed events are available upon request, including Bollywood, Lobster Celebration, Maldivian Fisherman’s Feast, and more.

With the array of activities available to the whole family combined with the unparalleled service of Four Seasons, Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, Baa Atoll provides the ultimate private getaway for families looking to elevate their next vacation.
