Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa

… a colourful garden ‘village’ bathed by crystal waters just 25 minutes from the airport.

Engage in exhilarating activities from surfing to shark safaris, dolphin‐watching to diving. Sail by dhoni to The Island Spa – the only spa in the Maldives on its own private isle. Retreat to beach accommodations surrounded by tropical blooms or water bungalows with mesmerising ocean views. As the setting sun paints the endless sky, the Sunset Lounge and Secret Beach epitomise the Resort’s postcard‐perfect setting and laid‐back vibe.

The architectural design centres on giving the entire Resort the feeling of a Maldivian village. Traditionally styled accommodations flank the island, either side of a wide garden promenade filled with bright, fragrant flowers. Architectural detailing – including decorative lattice panels, curved roof shapes and carved roof features – is inspired by Maldivian forms and draws on the traditions of generations of craftsmen. A generous use of timber and thatch complements the natural surroundings, with subtly raised floors maximising the sea views throughout the island.

Café HuraaCafé Huraa serves Western, Asian and Maldivian cuisine under two al fresco pavilions adjacent to the swimming pool. A raised floor maximises the views across the pool and ocean. The white stone floor, high thatched roofs and breezy setting enhance the air of beachside relaxation.

Reef ClubReef Club serves Italian fine dining with an emphasis on seafood, homemade pastas, wood‐fired pizzas and grilled meats. The restaurant is tucked away at the southern end of the island, beyond the buzz of the main pool area. Watch the baby black tip reef sharks in the shallow lagoon from tables on the deck or opt for seating under a thatched pavilion or at tables in the sand.

Open for dinner only, Baraabaru serves fine Indian cuisine including specialties from the tandoor and dum‐steamed biryani. Dine beneath imposing timber columns inspired by the architecture of Kerala, at the Tandoor Bar, or on the spectacular deck that extends 25 metres over the sea. Torch‐lit at night, the deck leads to a separate private dining pavilion for up to four guests.

Kandu GrillLocated adjacent to the main pool, Kandu Grill is open for dinner, serving fresh catch of the day alongside choice meats, seafood, salads and side dishes from an open kitchen pavilion.

Sunset LoungeIt’s Kodak‐moments aplenty at the Sunset Lounge, an atmospheric, open‐sided pavilion overlooking the main jetty. Picture‐perfect views of the sun setting beyond The Island Spa are complemented by a billiards table, creative cocktails and special access to ‘Secret Beach’…

Poolside Terrace & BarThe ‘swim‐up’ poolside bar and adjacent terrace serve cocktails, juices and snacks throughout the day. Gazebos around the pool provide shade by day and romantic dining venues by night.

Beach DiningSpecial arrangements can be made for dinner under the stars on the yoga platform, romantic beach barbecues, Robinson Crusoe picnics and private parties of any size.

In‐Bungalow Dining. Available 24 hours, in‐bungalow dining can cater to any request, from a sunrise champagne breakfast to a romantic starlit dinner.


The Island Spa – the only spa in the Maldives located on its own private isle – is just a minute’s sail by dhoni across Kuda Huraa’s lagoon.

Lush gardens lead to seven over‐water treatment pavilions – each designed for couples – featuring massage tables with sea‐viewing portals, separate bathing area and private garden courtyard with open‐air shower.

Launched in December 2011, The Island Spa’s menu melds Sodashi’s all‐natural goodness with time‐honoured Asian traditions to offer a range of innovative approaches for men, women and children.

Menu highlights include: multi‐day spa programmes that focus on detoxification, rejuvenation and romantic pampering; artfully tailored rituals to rejuvenate and restore; five specialty facials; intuitive, healing massages – such as the Maldivian Hathareh Massage – that draw on ancient techniques plus dedicated men's treatments. The Spa also offers in‐room Bath Rituals: 13 exclusive aromatherapy baths prepared in the comfort of one’s guestroom or suite.

The Night Spa
The Island Spa dramatically transforms into The Night Spa from 10 pm daily, offering open‐air lunar rituals under the tropical night sky

Kuda Spa
The Kuda (‘Little’) Spa menu offers a progressive approach to children as young as six (when accompanied by an adult). Seven natural, island‐inspired treatments include interactive sessions that enable children to blend their own essential oils, ‘activate’ lava shells and make massage poultices.


The Resort operates its own PADI 5‐Star IDC Centre with air and nitrox diving. A multilingual team offers courses for all abilities (including ‘Bubble Maker’ and PADI Seal Team courses for children) and daily dive trips. The Resort is within five to 30 minutes of 30 excellent dive sites, accessed via a traditional customised dhoni. Highlights include the renowned manta ray cleaning station at Sunlight Point (sightings from May to November) and the exciting 110‐metre long cargo freighter wreck, just 45 minutes away.
