Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru, BAA ATOLL, Maldives
A heartbreakingly-beautiful island in an unspoilt location, Landaa Giraavaru presents its discerning guests with peace and seclusion, staggering natural beauty and a hefty dose of indulgence.
A truly immaculate resort, Landaa Giraavaru is well worth travelling a little further to reach – and hey, that seaplane ride is sensational too.
Offering the usual Four Seasons range of top-notch facilities for adults and children alike, it serves up some serious rest and relaxation in perhaps the most idyllic of locations.
Effortlessly-tasteful villas come with white muslin drapes and cushion-strewn sofas, while the most spectacular boast immaculate private pools and shady beachfront terraces.
And unlike some Maldivian resorts, there are plenty of options available when the sun goes down, including a glittering Moroccan restaurant built over the sea, a smart cocktail bar with a sand-covered floor and a super-chic, all white beachfront Italian, dishing up some of the best gnocchi in the Indian Ocean.
