Ayurveda - the Indian "science of life" - is one of the worlds most comprehensive approaches to healthy living. It works by bringing balance to our vital energies - or doshas - through an individually tailored combination of treatments and exercise, as well as diet and lifestyle modifications. With a focus on treating illness, preventing disease and enhancing physical, mental and spiritual well-being, Ayurveda teaches us to live with insight and balance. It focuses on the three main aspects of health: diet, exercise and sleep.

Set within its own herb garden, lulled by gentle breezes and healing aromas, the Ayurvedic Retreat is an enclave of ancient knowledge and infinite well-being. Meet with our expert physicians to gain an understanding of your unique body-mind constitution; invest in single treatments or life-changing programs, including our intensive Panchakarma detoxification; visit the Ayurvedic Pharmacy and learn how to make fresh poultices from hand-picked herbs. Above all, discover 5,000 years of wisdom distilled into one deeply restorative practice.
Ayurveda largely focuses on prevention, meaning one doesn't have to be ill to benefit from a consultation with one of our Ayurvedic physicians. Although some Ayurvedic treatments may be taken without prior consultation, we highly recommend that Spa guests avail themselves of the complimentary 30-minute consultation we offer to all resort guests. Our physicians will consider the unique needs of the individual to recommend treatments, oils, herbs, food and activities based on individual dosha types. In addition, dosha-specific food labelling is available on all restaurant menus and throughout the breakfast buffet. Guests booking Ayurvedic Immersions will experience regular consultations throughout their program.
"Absolutely the beat resort I've ever been to in the world. Amazing location, amazing accommodation, amazing amenities but above all, the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa has the most amazing service I've ever has the privilege of experiencing. The staff was uncanny in predicting my family's needs and wants, especially Su at the front desk and Osama attending to all our F&B needs. If you're looking to be pampered head to toe for 5 glorious days, this is exactly the place for you."

"It was our first visit to a four seasons resort and I can only speak in superlatives. The resort is beautiful and perfectly integrated in the nature of the Maldives. The total experience is great. The staff, the food, the trips and the bungalows... everything is there to make your stay perfect. We especially enjoyed the spa on the private island and the turtle snorkeling trip. The resort has something for everyone, not only the couples destination but teenagers and young adults stay entertained in a stylish way. We are definitely going back."

"We stayed at both the Four Season hotels in Maldives and both are very good but Landaa takes the cake for us. The service is excellent. The food is amazing and the scenery is just stunning. We stayed here for the Easter period with our 4 year old daughter and the effort the Kids club staff went to was above and beyond. They put on a Easter Sunday party on the beach with the Easter bunny arriving by boat and then taking the kids for an Easter egg hunt and lunch. Also on the weekend they had a dress up disco night for the kids which were just awesome. Apart from the kids being taken care of there is plenty of activities for the adults. Diving, boating, jet skis etc or just lazing about with those magic views. Thanks Four Seasons again for great service delivery and a great place to holiday. See you again next year!!!. "

" Planning a honeymoon is hard, and the destination possibilities are quite endless. We definitely made the right choice by picking FS Landaa Giraavaru for ours! From our arrival to the open air, dreamy lobby, to our sad departure from this heaven, everything was beyond perfect. We stayed at a Sunrise Water Bungalow. These bungalows are fairy spatious, and gorgeous all around. The best thing is-they are private, and from what we notice, the overall accomodations on the island are pvery private; perfect for when you want that secluded moment with your significant other! When you want to be out and about, there are a couple of dining and bar options. You don't want to miss the gorgeous sunset from either the Seabar or Blu Bar-and try a few of the signature cocktails while you are there! We loved Blu's a la carte dining option too. We only got to try two of the buffets (Indochine and Fisherman's Night) simply because there are just too many different dining options aside from these buffets. I especially recommend Fisherman's Night. As expected from any Four Seasons Resort or Hotel, our stay was very personalized. Almost all of the staff know your name and make the best effort to make you feel like you were the only people on this big island--which we did! You will most surely get pampered! If you would like to feel more pampered, try the Spa (hint hint: The spa pavillions are built on water, gorgeous!). It is one of the best, if not the best luxury spas I have been to around the world. Though, if you are fair skinned and likely to get sunburnt in all shades of red despite the sunscreen like I do, don't forget to book your appointment (I highly encourage you to try a couple of different treatments here, you won't regret it) in the first few days of your arrival because you will not want to cancel any of these heavenly treatments for this reason (they do have an amazing cooling wrap for sunburn though)! Also, the spa is very popular so try to book ahead and do try the new night spa. We couldn't try it this time, but hopefully we will when we go back (which we plan to for sure!) Lastly, if you are there in the right season--don't miss seeing the Mantas who like to hang around in the island's vicinity! "
