It’s official. Four Seasons has just opened a private island resort in the Maldives. The retreat has just seven bedrooms- and a full five acres to frolic in tropical paradise. Private island resorts are not a new concept for international jetsetters, but the Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, Baa Atoll is the world’s first “exclusive-use hideaway” in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. What this means for guests: the freedom to explore the incredible marine sanctuary aboard the 62 foot private yacht Voavah Summer or from the on-site dive school.
After a day spent swimming with sea turtles and snorkeling with manta rays, return to the Beach House to lounge in the open-air living room, dining room, kitchen, pool deck, gym, library or loft lounge. Spa treatments are available at The Ocean of Consciousness Spa. Traveling with an entourage? There are also extra rooms for children and private staff. The private island resort is serviced by a full staff—from housekeeping and childcare to recreation and diving.
