Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa

Island luxury with Maldivian charm

Fringed with coral reefs, traditional thatched-roof bungalows and local craftsmanship, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa combines Maldivian heritage with tropical luxury. The smaller of the country’s two Four Seasons properties, the 96-room resort is a family-friendly paradise with plenty for couples to love, too.

Extending across three majestic islands, this opulent resort is home to the Maldives’ first private spa island, a world-class surfing tournament and an impressive sea turtle conservation sanctuary.

Have your camera ready to capture the luminescent waters from multiple vantage points, including the overwater suites, the adults-only Serenity pool, Sunset Lounge and Kandu Grill.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The first of its kind in the Maldives, The Island Spa is a romantic retreat tucked away on its own islet. For the ultimate in relaxation, opt for the after-hours Secrets of the Sea ritual performed at night on the beach beneath a canopy of stars.
  • Honeymooners can indulge in the adults-only pool hidden at the southern tip of the island. Featuring an over-sea whirlpool and night swimming on the secluded beachfront, it’ll surely float your worries away.
  • Get up close and personal with the cutest residents of Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa: the two species of sea turtles (hawksbill and green) found at the Marine Discovery Centre sanctuary. Feed the adorable reptiles and learn about the rehabilitation program that is educating island communities across the Maldives.
  • This Maldives hotel is a wave rider’s paradise. Opt for a seaplane surfing safari or book a seven-day surfing tour of the atoll (available in July and August) aboard the ultra-luxe Four Seasons Explorer catamaran.
  • End a day at Sunset Lounge. Sip on Maldivian-inspired cocktails as a glowing sunset unfolds before you, all while relaxing on the overwater deck.

Things to Know

  • Squeeze in a workout at the 24-hour gym or opt for a more serene experience with a stand-up paddleboard yoga class. It’s not hard to find your Zen while doing a few sun salutations floating on turquoise waters.
  • One of the world’s most prestigious invitation-only surfing contests, the Four Seasons Maldives Surfing Championships Trophy is held here each August. It brings in some of the biggest names in surfing, including Mark Occhilupo, Tom Curren and Joel Parkinson.
  • Four Seasons Maldives Buddies are more than just your personal 24-hour concierges. It’s more like having a resort-designated friend who will take care of your every need from before you arrive until your departure from Kuda Huraa Island.
  • While you’re here, check out sister resort Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. The Kuda Harra hotel can arrange a seaplane ride or luxury cruise aboard Four Seasons Explorer between the two properties.

The Rooms

  • The 96 luxurious villas are a testament to Maldivian craftsmanship and technique, but with all your standard creature comforts. Rope-twined pool ladders, woven palm leaf ceilings, coral stonewalls and wooden gated doors complement 42-inch plasma TVs and Bose surround sound systems.
  • A tropical color palette is present throughout all 15 room categories. Bright shades of blue and pink mimic the ocean, lagoons, frangipanis and plant life found throughout the Maldives.
  • The Two-Bedroom Royal Beach Villa is a lavish escape with its own private stretch of sand, pool and an overwater dining pavilion where you can catch a fantastic sunset.
  • The Sunset Three-Bedroom Water Suite offers nearly 3,000 square feet of outdoor living space equipped with a private infinity pool, a cabana with day beds, and overwater hammocks that make for an alfresco oasis at the luxury hotel.

The Restaurants

  • Open-air Baraabaru combines vibrant Indian spices and overwater dining with signature experiences like Tandoor Tapas, a four-course meal featuring tandoor-cooked dishes like paneer tikka (cheese chunks marinated in spices), and turmeric and cheese lobster. For those with a sweet tooth, sate it with the masala tea pannacotta with fresh berries.
  • Set under a traditional Maldivian thatched-roof pavilion, Café Huraa serves Asian and Western favorites against uninterrupted ocean vistas and an infinity pool backdrop. Savor international plates like Maldivian curried lobster, Korean grilled ribs with kimchi soup, or comforting beef stroganoff.
  • Kandu Grill showcases fresh Maldivian seafood and extravagant cuts of meat served on the sandy shores of the Indian Ocean. Order the Miranda Tomato Elixir (macerated baby roma tomato jelly, plum tomato concasse, micro basil, fennel fronds and flower, chives, Parmesan toast, and Parmigiano Reggiano foam and crisps), and chilled seafood platter Fruits of the Sea.
