Life is a journey and when man decides to go take one by himself, there is always a purpose. Many look for a journey of self-exploration and realization. Others just want to get away and hand themselves over to a place they trust will pamper their senses beyond expectations. Time is a luxury money can’t buy and for families and couples, it is finding the joy in doing things together. Four Seasons at Maldives makes sense for all these people from different walks of life because eventually the end game is the same. Dreams may vary, but achieving them is the only purpose. Four Season Maldives works relentlessly to offer guests a memorable phase of their lives they can reflect on and of course come back to. Members are hand picked for their diligent commitment to service. Experiences are created to last and amaze your sense of wonder. From the moment you arrive to the minute you leave, everything is taken care of. They whisk you away by car then a boat and eventually a seaplane, which in itself is a journey you can never forget especially if the storms conspire against you. But the Four Seasons force is with you, so you are in good hands. Fast-forward to the welcome and you are greeted by drums and kind greetings with garlands and coconuts, much like a Hollywood movie scene and eventually escorted to the vacation you promised yourself all year. You get the picture. Now let us help you design the Maldivian adventure. Four Seasons has three luxury resorts and a luxury liveboard- an 11-cabin, three-deck catamaran that offers the dive cruise of a lifetime. What they encourage you to do is, plan aweeklong adventure and start at one of the private islands, swop islands via a 30-minute seaplane transfer; or embark on a marine and cultural odyssey between the two on Four Seasons Explorer, which is nothing less than extraordinary. Cruise between Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru on a seven-night itinerary and private customized charter. This gives every mood and traveler what they are looking for. For the lazy vacationer, it allows you the luxury to relax at Kuda Hura with 12 acres of exotic gardens awash with bougainvillea, frangipani and hibiscus and a chance to indulge in the exotic Island Spa sea sanctuary. For the wild ones, surfing and shark snorkel safaris are a must. All snorkeling and diving addicts must experience the FS explorer for an experience like never before. From May to November, the currents move large quantities of plankton through the atolls, attracting manta rays and whale sharks to the eastern side of the country. During December to April the wind reverses, resulting in incredible 30- 40m visibility and consistently near-perfect conditions. And of course for those who wish to eat, pray and love, Landaa has everything you could ask for. Snorkel with dolphins, turtles and lemon sharks in the lagoon and immerse in the healing heart of The Spa and Ayurvedic Retreat in a dense jungle habitat. With so much to do, choose what makes you happy and do more of it. If you set out on a journey seeking something then know this, you will find it. After all, in the wise words of Rumi, ‘what you seek is seeking you.’
