“Simple Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We stayed at Kuda Huraa for 5 nights in October prior to moving on to Landaa Giravaru for 4 nights. We have never experienced such quality customer service than that given by the Four Seasons. The staff are just excellent. The island itself is quite small but you never get the feeling of it being over crowded. In fact, other than the main areas we often found ourselves mostly alone. We were on the Sunset side but found the sunrise side has the better beach and snorkelling, not a problem, we just we just did the 2 minute walk to the other side. There are plenty of beds and umbrellas. While on the beach the staff constantly top up your water, they even change it once the ice has melted. Throughout the day they provide you with little refreshing treats too. A nice touch.

The food was of a high quality, we were half board and only once had lunch and that was to eat the fish we caught the night before! it is worth doing the half board as a meal for 2 generally cost between 2-400 dollars. There is a massive selection for breakfast, again of an excellent quality. Baraabaru was our favourite meal, very authentic.

We stayed in a beach bungalow which was well furnished. The plunge pool is quite big and chest deep so excellent for cooling down after a hard day on the beach. I liked the little touches such as loccitane toiletries, providing body insect repellant spray and even after sun.

Its great that the resort focus on minimising the impact on the environment, Its nice to feel that you arent doing so much damage visiting such a beautiful place. The turtle sanctuary and the coral growing program are extremely interesting.

Overall and amazing resort made special by the people and the little touches

Room Tip: Sunrise side has a better beach and snorkelling.

If you only take one honeymoon or romantic retreat in your lifetime, this is the place to spend it! If you take more than one, try the Four Seasons on Landaa Giraavaru or go all out and float away on the Four Seasons Explorer. The beach bungalows (with pools) are a secluded and serene escape from life. The over-the-water bungalows are also breath-taking. The staff is very friendly, professional, and quick to help with anything you may request. We travelled halfway around the world to come back to the paradise of Kuda Huraa and the Explorer!

Room Tip: Sunset rooms are more romantic and while the over-the-water bungalows provide a stunning view above...

We stayed here for three days before moving on to Landaa Giraavaru and what a wonderful three days they were!

We were met at the airport and ushered onto a private boat and offered cool towels and water before our journey. The crew happily pointed out things of interest before we arrived and helped us out of the boat on arrival.

Our Beach Bungalow was beautiful and balanced privacy and accessibility perfect. We were relatively close to everything going on, but far enough away that residual noise was not as issue. We spent a lot of time snorkelling and embarked on the shark safari excursion and saw two black tips! The guys at the Discovery centre were great.

Food was great, the Indian restaurant and the grill both outstanding and we loved the guys in Cafe Huraa who were happy to share their knowledge of their island with us. The staff couldn't do enough for you and all seem proud to work for Four Seasons.

That's a bold statement but I have travelled across the globe for the past 15 years from one continent to the other and rarely have I experienced such a magical place as the 4 Seasons in Kuda Huraa. Everything is amazing there...the service, the food, the spa, the diving and the attention to details shown by the attentive staff. It might be expensive but it's worth every single dollar you will spend. This was the last time I have truly relaxed and manage to disconnect (well depsite mobile roaming working amazingly well!!!!). After 3 trips to the Maldives and countless others in the region, this establishment wins it all...Spoilt yourself and go...you won't be disappointed.

We went there as a Family of three. Myself, my wife and my two year old daughter. This was a short running away from home vacation that we have decided on on the last minute. Myself and my wife have been to the Maldives (for our honeymoon) and we stayed in the Conrad. That was a beautiful hotel but the four seasons is simply different. I will not be telling that one is better than the other but each has its perks. The Four seasons we thought was simply perfect for a family. My daughter simply loved the place. The in room pool was beautiful, the public pool was child friendly and the beach was her favorite activity. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and my daughter loved them. Their kids club is defiantly one of the best we have witnessed. Unfortunately my daughter thought it was a school and did not want to go.

Overall verdict, if you are a family then GO GO GO..

Room Tip: Pool villas has private pools. Others are not very private

This was our 2nd stay at Kuda Huraa

The warm welcome with drums at the Jetty, the very nice furnitured houses and the environmental care of the reefs plus the Four Seasons Hospitality were the reasons why we decided (the first time in our travellers life) to return to the same Hotel

It was wonderful again

We combined Kuda Huraa (7 days) with another 7 days in Four Seasons Landa Giravaru

EXTRA GOOD HOLIDAYS

Don't miss the snorkel trips - wonderful
