Voavah Maldives, the World's Best Private Island
Ever dreamed of lying undisturbed on a beach of shimmering white sand on a secluded tropical island surrounded by endless sparkling aquamarine waters all to yourself? Want to be pampered like never before?
Then you are invited to spend your well earned holiday among the Maldivian Atolls on the first Four Seasons private island, experiencing the luxurious ambience of Voavah Maldives and exploring the seas in the isle’s 62ft (18.9m) private luxury yacht, the Voavah Summer. Voavah Maldives beckons you for a dream-filled holiday. The Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah stands on five acres of the Baa Atoll. It takes about 20 minutes to get there by speedboat from the Four Seasons Resort Maldives on Landaa Giraavaru and just 40 minutes to get you there by seaplane from Mal. International Airport.
Once there, you can expect the property to host a group of up to 22 guests comfortably in seven rooms, and to experience a level of luxury no other property in the Maldives can offer.
Indulge in a bespoke spa treatment overwater offered by the ‘Oceans of Consciousness’ unique to the island; or you may prefer to take classes in yoga or meditation, or experience the art of breathing in pranayama. The Voavah also has a consultant in hair treatments and cuts from Italy’s salon Rossano Ferretti. There are two pools and a Beach House that allows you to play pool in the games room, relax in a library or visit the gym. The bedrooms are in overwater villas and in standalone beach houses. The Beach House also has bedrooms. Staff quarters discreetly placed within the interior of the island allow you to procure assistance whenever you want, day or night.
You have the option and the facilities to cook your meals or have the staff take care of everything for you if you wish. Meals can also be pre-ordered to be served in the dining room or by the pool. The chef will always be glad to prepare a picnic on the sandbanks, or have him prepare the freshest sashimi, hand caught to order. ‘Lobster Celebration’ or ‘Maldivian Fisherman’s Feast’ are themed dinner nights that guests can also sample. Sail on the island’s private yacht, the Voavah Summer, and explore the surrounding atolls and little-known surf spots, or dive and snorkel among turtles, manta rays and reef sharks.
Take a glimpse into the lifestyle and culture of the Maldivian people by visiting the Archipelago’s capital Mal., a sharp contrast to the resorts where life can be laid-back. More than 133,000 people live there in an area of under six square kilometres. Visit the National Museum and historic mosques, and reflect on the rich Maldivian heritage of a key port serving sea routes for thousands of years. Watch as the daily catch is brought in from the harbour to the fish market, it is a fun experience, and be surprised by the massive size of tuna, grouper and octopus. Shop for souvenirs along Chandani Magu, south of Republic Square, and carry home some tasteful mementoes.
