The chain of Four Seasons resorts around the world are known for its ultra-luxury experiences, and the Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru is one of the best among them. It is situated on its own island, located in Baa Atoll. Baa Atoll is the country’s first UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and is a sight to behold with white beaches lapped by aquamarine waves, and fringed by a lush green tropical jungle.
This Maldives eco-friendly resort offers luxurious overwater villas, each with its own private infinity pool, a communal Olympic-sized infinity pool, a full-service spa retreat, and four different options offering Asian, Italian, and North African cuisine.
Residents can spend the day cruising the islands in the area, or they can explore the underwater delights that Maldives has to offer, spending time playing with the local manta rays. As for the sustainability efforts taken by the resort, Four Seasons installed the country’s largest resort-based solar power system in 2019, called the RoofSolar inverter.
The installation uses 3100+ solar panels, which produce around one million kWh of electricity each year. Moreover, in their efforts to be carbon-neutral, the resort has banned plastic usage, removed plastic straws and bottles, and recycled leftover plastic into different clothing items. They also employ a team of 10 biologists, who work with the resort to conserve the local flora and fauna, as well as many rehabilitation and conservation programs.
