We like to dream about owning our own private island, and yet we very rarely think about the kind of work that would require. You need a yacht to get there, you need to stock up on enough drinks to last the trip, you need to secure a staff... it’s actually a pretty tough life when you think about it. Now thanks to the Four Seasons, there's a private island that's entirely yours, and ready whenever you are.
Voavah at Baa Atoll is situated in the stunning waters of the Maldives, a remote paradise so inviting you'll never want to leave. According to Lindsay Cameron, Senior Account Manager for HL Group, it's "the world’s first exclusive-use hideaway in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, making this destination truly one-of-a-kind." She also notes that guests can make their experience equally one-of-a-kind, as they're the ones to determine the schedule, staff, and services during their stay.
The exclusive accommodation boasts seven bedrooms: the three-bedroom 'Beach Villa' (which has its own pool), the two-bedroom 'Water Villa' (stilted over the turquoise lagoon), and two 'Mezzanine Suites' with panoramic views of the island and sea. All bedrooms are filled to the brim with stylish decor, while a library, gym, and games room are ready at your disposal.
And when it comes to additional amenities, what would a Four Seasons resort be without options? Voavah features a world-renown spa, a PADI Dive Center, and activities like wakeboarding, windsurfing, and your own private yacht. It's never been easier to explore grandiose underwater environments like vibrant coral reefs and mysterious shipwrecks, while majestic creatures like manta rays, dolphins, and whale sharks keep you company.
Food options are just as limitless, featuring wok creations, tandoor specialties, pizzas, and bespoke barbecues. Even where you eat is personalized. Whether you want to enjoy your award-winning cuisine at the Beach Villa, as a picnic along the shore, or on your private yacht, the Four Seasons delivers.
