Redefining Exclusive Luxury in Maldives; Four Seasons Private Island to Open Late 2016

Maldives is home to some of the most exclusive and luxurious resorts in the world. So when you are a hotel company as highly respected as Four Seasons, which already has a major presence in the country, how exactly do you make an even greater impact and create the ultimate in luxury escapes?

 You establish the first private island in the companys portfolio and the worlds only exclusive-use UNESCO hideaway located in a World Biosphere Reserve. That's how!

Opening in late 2016, the secluded five-acre (two-hectare) Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, Baa Atoll transcends the private island experience.

The island is accessible via a 40-minute seaplane transfer from Mal International Airport, or a 20-minute speedboat ride from Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru.

 Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah will be the fourth addition to the companys Maldives collection, including Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa, and Four Seasons Explorer.

 Entirely yours from the moment of booking, the islands seven bedrooms, beach house, dive centre, spa and 62-foot (18.9-metre) yacht extend the spoils of the Maldives only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve to up to 22 guests on an exclusive basis.

At Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, guests can design their own experience, said Armando Kraenzlin, Regional Vice President and General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. They can treat the island as a space to spend captivating moments with family and friends; a place to play to the extreme and explore to their hearts content; a secluded sanctuary to retreat and spa; the most exclusive VIP venue to celebrate and party; or an inspiring landscape to meet and motivate.

Many experiences from year-round manta ray sightings to mind-expanding kids activities focus on the surrounding UNESCO territory, guided by a team that has already spent a decade protecting it. Indeed, Four Seasons developed Voavah in close coordination with local environmental consultancies to ensure proper maintenance of the balance between man and nature, culture and conservation in keeping with the prerequisites of the Atolls UNESCO Biosphere designation.

Voavah days revolve around the double-storey beach house and adjacent white sands, crystal waters and abundant reef all exemplary even by Maldivian standards.

 The beach house hub offers an open-air living room, dining room, kitchen, pool deck, gym, library and loft lounge, while seven bedrooms span three separate locations: on the beach, over the lagoon or elevated in panoramic Mezzanine Suites.

As are all aspects of Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, dining on the island is tailored to the mood of island guests, meal by meal, from poolside to the beach house dining room, at the waters edge or on a sandbank. A 62-foot (18.9-metre) private yacht Voavah Summer invites exploration of a dazzling and undisturbed UNESCO territory.

 From diving with whale sharks to snorkelling with year-round manta rays, swimming with neighbourhood turtles, fishing for dinner, visiting local islands, surfing unknown breaks and cruising into breathtaking Baa Atoll sunsets, the possibilities on Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah are almost endless.

Expanding horizons, The Oceans of Consciousness Spa offers bespoke over-water spa therapies and rituals; yoga, meditation and pranayama classes; high-end beauty treatments; and Rossano Ferretti hair consultant on call.

In the mood for a party? On Voavah, there are no neighbours, no paparazzi and the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Groups can create one-of-a-kind birthday surprises and celebrations, fly in big name acts or create their own mini music festival or beach party, all perfected with a sprinkling of Voavah magic.

Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah will redefine exclusive luxury, opening as a tropical haven for those who seek an unprecedented experience of private luxury alongside Four Seasons legendary service, said Mike Crawford, President, Asia Pacific. As the latest addition to our Extraordinary Experiences collection, the island speaks to the companys commitment to perfecting the guest experience and our ability to re-imagine the limits of luxury travel in creative and innovative ways. Its just one of the many ways were constantly evolving our offerings to deliver the kind of memorable, fully-customised and exclusive experiences our guests want and value.
