Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru Baa Atoll Reviews

Nice, but not as nice as Kuda Huraa Apr 24, 2012
We originally were planning to spend 4 nights at Kuda Huraa and 4 nights at Landaa Giraavaru. We ended up only spending one night here.

Both places were great, but we ended up liking Kuda Huraa more than Landaa. And since we had spent 4 nights at Kuda Huraa before coming here, it was hard to go from paradise to something slightly less than paradise.

The main things we didn't like about Landaa were:

- Main pool area appeared to be under construction. There were piles of sandbags and plastic piled up all around the pool, and it didn't seem like a very nice place to hang out at all. And only one person was working for food/drinks at the entire pool.

- In general, was just less impeccably clean than Kuda Huraa. Bathrooms by the pool had crumpled up paper towels next to the sink. Window on the floor of the water bungalow in the bathroom was dirty and smudgy. Mold in the airvents of the shower. Again, it wasn't dirty, and these are pretty minor complaints, but it was just the comparison having just arrived from Kuda Huraa that made the differences so stark.

- We liked having a smaller, sandy island that was easily walkable. Landaa is much bigger than Kuda, and hard to get around without utilizing the golf carts. We also weren't huge fans of the jungle atmosphere, but again this is just personal preference and others may like that environment.

- Non-management staff just seemed less friendly. Not as many friendly waves or smiles from people working and walking around the resort campus.

On the plus side, the front desk and assistant manager were very understanding of our situation, and arranged for us to return to Kuda Huraa the next day. The Arabic restaurant was also very good.

Again, I should stress that this is still a top notch resort - it just wasn't for us, and Kuda Huraa was a better fit. Your personal experiences and preferences may vary.

It's hard to go from 5* great to 4* good sometimes. I have experienced this on occasion. I think you were fair and generous in your review here.
