Big Island with a Big Heart for an even Bigger Wallet Jan 01, 2012
Being my first time on an island resort in Maldives I was amazed on how much service a 5-star hotel and resort chain could provide given it was on a distant island far from the convenience of the city. Everything was either flown or shipped in so true enough to my expectations everything came at a premium. Beach villas were spaced adequately enough to provide you privacy though also close enough in case you needed more than one villa. The water villas were my favorite since they provided me an escape when I got sick of walking on sand all day long. I've never seen a bathroom so large it could be a separate villa itself. Food was excellent since I got to know most of the Kitchen staff and I blame them for the additional weight that I am still trying to burn off until now. All the time I was at one of their outlets I wished I had a second digestive system. I had only one Spa treatment but it was superb since I opted for an Ayurvedic ritual which involved poultices and oils with chanting. I was skeptical on the chanting since I knew it was just for show but having four hands massage my whole body was an experience that I highly recommend to anyone. Since they used ayurvedic treatments some of the oils can be less than desirable in terms of scent and it sticks to you even after the treatment. My whole experience at this resort was truly a first in my lifetime and I hope I get to have another truly different but equally amazing experience at another Four Seasons property.

Superb Four Seasons Experience Jan 11, 2011
While I write this post, I couldn't help but make a wish that hopefully one day I could visit this resort again. I only have superlative words for this resort. Why? My friend and I didn't pay as much as the normal guests should pay, but everything went totally exceptional! I was blown away! This made me wonder though if I should write it here or in a blogpost/journal entry?! Forgive me but my thoughts are HOW MUCH TREATMENT THEY'D RENDER FOR NORMAL GUESTS?! (you know what I mean?!) Oh bless them! And so I hope it is alright that I make this entry to hotel/resort review.

So there! Because of a very very good friend we were able to visit the resort with super discounted rates! Who wouldn't be glad to be there aside from the special rates? The resort has been given prestigious awards every now & then (latest was that the resort was voted Best Resort in the Maldives & ranked sixth in the world in the recent Condé Nast Traveller (UK) Readers Travel Awards 2010).


Yes, I know! We were very lucky! Thank God! :D

OK, but here's the thing, they could have been given lots of awards but sometimes there would still be some flaws and I was expecting to find some of it however when I was there with my friend Yvonne, our experience was just awesome (I don't know if there is a much better word to describe than that). From the moment we arrived at their airport counter, to the lounge area to the resort till we departed, it was really incredible! Just my idea of a perfect holiday especially for an island destination comes up with great service, great food and great accommodation. Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru didn't fail us! (all the while I was thinking it's just the name but I was so wrong!) We can't mess up with them and if there is one thing that I was sad of about the place? Nah! That was leaving the island!

Great staff, great service. May 31, 2011
The villas are neat-looking, with good proximity to the beach and with high-class amenities.

Buggy service is sometimes or most the time delayed.

Doctor service is excellent!

Food is ok but it would be nicer to have more variety.

The dive team is very accommodating and friendly.

Front office staff are very hardworking.

The staff offer personalized service which is just great.
