Diving:
Known internationally as one of the world's best scuba diving destinations, the Maldives has an abundance of dive sites with one thrilling dive opportunity after another. The waters surrounding Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa and the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, home to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, have consistently warm waters with outstanding visibility. Immerse yourself in enormous shoals of butterflyfish and oriental sweetlips; drift the channels with white tips, hammerheads and whalesharks; descend deep sea ridges with eagle rays, giant napoleans and blue marlin; spot turtles at dawn, dolphins at dusk and mass seasonal gatherings of manta rays; or marvel at the "weird and wonderfuls" that inhabit the vast reef-formations and unique Maldivian thilas. Exhilarating sites include vibrant thilas, exciting channels, coral-filled overhangs and fascinating wrecks. Snorkel with manta rays and whale sharks at renowned local feeding grounds like Bathalaa and Hanifaru Bay. Each of the Resorts' PADI Five-Star IDC Centres offers tailored programmes for all abilities and personalised experiences with specialty courses taught by some of the country's most experienced instructors.

Marine Discovery Centre:
Led by a team of marine biologists from Male-based environmental consultancy, Seamarc Pvt. Ltd., activities in the conservation program guide guests through the alluring underwater world around the islands. Experience once-in-a-lifetime encounters with a variety of marine creatures while learning about their life and habitat, and even participate in some of the Resort's conservation projects.

Water Sports:
Located at the western end of the island on Blu Beach, the Water Sports Centre is open daily from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. Complimentary snorkels, masks, fins and non-motorised water-sports equipment – such as sailboats, kayaks, catamarans and state-of-the-art windsurfing gear – are available.

Leisure Activities:
Just steps from your Four Seasons villa or suite are a multitude of options for sports and recreation. Our Concierge is always pleased to advise and assist you.

On our three-deck, liveaboard luxury catamaran, all-inclusive itineraries allow divers to explore exciting channels and wrecks, sunrise and night dive sites as well as seasonal manta ray and whale shark hot spots. Embark on three-, four- and seven-night cruises, or private, customised charters.

FACILITIES

The Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat, a resort in itself, provides a comprehensive approach to physical, spiritual and mental well-being, with a special emphasis on yoga and ayurveda. Secluded open-air treatment areas make the lush tropical setting an integral part of the relaxation and treatment process.

The spa complex:
Located in the heart of the island and stretching down to sea, the spa complex occupies an elevated 1-hectare (2.5-acre) site, with 10 individual thatched treatment pavilions – four over water, three in a lush garden setting and three in the Ayurvedic Retreat. Set over crystal waters, each water pavilion has an attached steam room and deep bath that overlooks the ocean, while each garden treatment villa has a steam room and outdoor shower. Guests aged 16 and above are welcome to enjoy our spa treatments.

Yoga:
Yoga at the Resort is a magical experience. Our resident yogi guides beginners and experienced followers through inspiring morning meditation and evening enlightenment sessions from a pavilion that "floats" on the sea. Private sessions are available, and the yogi welcomes all guests for discussions on this ancient spiritual practice.

Ayurvedic Retreat:
Situated within the spa complex, the Ayurvedic Retreat, a first for Four Seasons, is designed to stimulate its guests into thinking about, experimenting with and understanding the fundamental philosophical approach to ayurveda. The Resort has worked closely with experts from nearby Kerala, India, to ensure this ancient science of life has been successfully transported to the Maldives. These experienced Keralan and Sri Lankan therapists and ayurvedic physicians are highly trained professionals in ayurveda, including diet, body type, patient approach and the practice of yoga and meditation.

DINING

Savour the tastes of Asia, sample Lebanese and Moroccan fare in a rooftop setting, dine on Italian as lagoon and ocean views stretch into the distance or enjoy the day's catch or organic meats poolside.

One small island rarely brings so much of the world to your plate.

Al Barakat Restaurant:
Named after Abu Al Barakat Yusuf Al Barbari, a North African scholar who made Baa Atoll his home in the 12th century, Al Barakat serves authentic Arabian cuisine. The restaurant is built over water, off the main jetty. A shisha bar is located on the ground level. The main dining area on the rooftop features comfortable low seating.

Café Landaa Restaurant:
Overlooking the swimming pool and beach, the three thatched-roofed pavilions of Café Landaa are separated by reflecting ponds. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, our chefs create exquisite delights with eastern and western influences.

Fuego Grill Restaurant:
Located adjacent to the seawater pool and overlooking the eastern coast of the island, Fuego Grill is open for dinner. The restaurant offers fresh catch of the day as well as a wide selection of organic and prime cut meats, salads, sandwiches and Asian dishes from an open kitchen pavilion. Teak tables and chairs are set in the sand facing the sea.

Blu Restaurant:
Located at the western end of the island overlooking a 2-kilometre (1.2-mile) lagoon, Blu embraces the essence of the Maldives as the place where the ocean meets the sky. From the restaurant pavilion on one side or the Blu Bar pavilion on the other, you can watch the sun sink below the horizon. The restaurant serves light antipasti, pizza and pasta during the day and fine Italian cuisine in the evening.

SeaBar:
Take the short seawalk to one of the most relaxed decks in the Maldives. At Seabar, you'll laze on comfortable cushions as you sip our signature frozen margaritas and snack on tapas-style share plates and light bites – all while admiring the lemon sharks and reef fish in the turquoise waters below.

Blue Bar:
In the casual sand-floor setting of Blu Bar, enjoy exotic juices, tropical cocktails or a refreshing young coconut. As the sun sets, an aperitif or glass of sparkling Prosecco is the perfect prelude to an Italian dinner next door at Blu.

Shisha Bar:
Perched over the lagoon by the main jetty, Al Barakat's Shisha Bar is open to the sea, with curtained sofas and ornate lanterns – an atmospheric setting for pre-dinner drinks or Turkish coffee and shisha pipes.

Poolside Bar:
Enjoy panoramic views of the Indian Ocean from the Poolside Bar. Wine, cocktails and refreshing tropical drinks are served throughout the day, as well as salads and light fare.

Five Degrees North:
The Resort's casual bar is named for the island's location, which lies five degrees north of the equator. Its nautically inspired décor features a dhoni (traditional boat) as the counter, with a pool table and selection of board games for entertainment. The bar also has an extensive drinks selection.
