Nine Reasons to Choose Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru for Multi-Generational Memory Making

Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, Republic of Maldives

Family: they drive you beautifully wild - so let them, at the wildly beautiful Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, where conservation, connection, wellbeing and wonder combine to elevate multi-generational travel to new heights.

From overwater living spaces to manta magic, here are nine magical reasons why Landaa is a playground of possibility for families:

1. Playful spaces made for sharing

Serene turquoise pools, direct beach or lagoon access, and chilled indoor/outdoor spaces: Landaa’s vast villas and bungalows allow every member of the clan to enjoy laidback island living. You’d be forgiven for never wanting to leave, but oceanic adventure is calling.

2. Knowledge is power

ID local dolphin populations. Contribute to a national plankton database. Transplant coral frames and be part of world-leading research in the Fish Lab. Led by experts, our hands-on series of Trainee Marine Biologist modules empower the next generation of conservationists – perfect for your budding Jacques Cousteau teen.

3. Hang with the locals

Help rehabilitate injured sea turtles at the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. Cluck around with the island’s United Featheration of chickens (and enjoy their fresh eggs at Blu). Spot baby sharks at Seabar. Snorkel with Nemo and his friends in the Coral Garden, just steps from the shore. Our feathered and finned residents can’t wait to meet you.

4. A world of oceanic wonders

Embark on your PADI journey in our sheltered lagoon – including sea-based dive lessons for children as young as eight, thanks to a special dispensation from PADI. Venture further afield on the Resort’s fleet of boats and yachts to snorkel in manta-filled UNESCO waters and cruise alongside wave-riding dolphins. Or take to the waves – and skies – with the Maldives’ largest selection of water sports.

5. Action-packed adventures at every age

Keep little ones entertained with a treetop jungle gym, pirate ship, water slide and wading pool at the Kids Club. Join in coral reefscaping, wishing tree walks, lizard spotting, and more with Passport to Adventure (kids aged 4-8) or challenge older kids with Mission: Landaa: a Resort-wide, points-based activity program that immerses 8-to-12-year-olds in the island’s wonders and workings – rewards included!

6. Explore togetherness

Cycle sandy pathways on a lizard and bat spotting safari. Test your muscles on the Yoga Energy Trail. Fire up playful competition on the Padel Tennis court. Catch your dinner at dusk using traditional hand-line fishing techniques. Then gather under the stars for a private big-screen movie or marvel at a constellation of delights with Landaa’s on-site astronomers.

7. Mesmerising manta magic (without getting wet!)

Head to our pioneering Hologram Room to virtually “swim” with manta rays, whales, seahorses and octopi – all without donning a wetsuit. Or download our (free) interactive Manta Story app. Created in collaboration with The Manta Trust, it’s a deep dive into the lives of our local Baa Atoll ballerinas of the ocean.

8. Planetary wellbeing at wellness haven AyurMa

Join the AyurMa team each evening for a daily gratitude ritual featuring song, dance and mindfulness. Bond with a special family spa ritual celebrating togetherness. Treat teens to uplifting face and body treatments or encourage little earth warriors with the Earth Explorers Ritual for Kids. Based on the principle of “loving the Earth as you love yourself,” AyurMa is an invitation for all the family to embark on a new path to health, harmony and happiness.

9. Divine dining in laidback Landaa-style

Easy breezy family dining is always on the menu at Landaa. Secluded beach BBQs where the kids can run wild. Private poolside picnics catering to everyone’s tastes. Starlit sandbank-stranded dinners for unforgettable celebrations. With creative kids’ menus, early dinner sittings and age-appropriate dining amenities, we’ve got family feasting covered.
