Armando Kraenzlin joins Paul and Elizabeth to talk about the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and at Baa Atoll – a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve which for many are the ultimate getaways. Armando is Regional Vice-President and General Manager of the resorts and their luxury dive boat. He tells how he landed in the Maldives and what about the incredible setting that keeps him there. Here’s some information from the website that describes it better than we ever could.
An enchanting garden island infused with traditional village charm, a mere 25-minute speedboat ride from Malé International Airport, our private coral island is home to the charm of a Maldivian village by the turquoise sea. Here, palm-thatched pavilions and bungalows line the white sand or dip their feet into the crystal water. An island spa offers soothing Asian secrets. Sunrise, sunshine and sunset paint the endless sky.
A remote natural wilderness in the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, 30-45 minutes by seaplane from Malé International Airport, this verdant, beach-fringed coral island embraces both idyllic, away-from-it-all retreat and sophisticated pleasures on land and water – from genuine ayurvedic therapies in the spa to splashing, sailing or diving in the jewel-like waters.
The ultimate liveaboard for marine adventurers, sailing between Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru on 3-, 4- or 7-night itineraries and private charters, this 11-cabin, three-deck catamaran takes you island-hopping in inimitable Four Seasons style. Avid divers, water enthusiasts, nature lovers and 21st-century explorers can discover remote shores and rarely visited dive/snorkelling sites among the untouched reaches of the exotic atolls. Four Seasons Explorer is a memorable adventure in itself, and an exciting complement to either or both of our Four Seasons Resorts Maldives.
