TRAVEL GUIDE 2017
Home, Sweet Home The fourth addition to the Four Seasons Maldives collection, Vaovah accommodates up to 22 guests with seven bedrooms across a beach villa, a stilted water villa above a fish-filled lagoon, and two mezzanine suites overlooking undisturbed white-sand beaches and the Indian Ocean. At the island’s core is The Beach House, with every homely amenity, from an open-air living room, dining room and kitchen to a gym, library and two of the island’s four private pools. Every detail oozes luxury, from the thread-count to the concoctions whipped up by your private chef. Get on Board Parked on your crystal-clear driveway is your very own 62-foot private yacht, the Voavah Summer , exclusive to Voavah guests. Take her out for a spin day or night; go big-game fishing, dive with manta rays, reef sharks and turtles or anchor down at sandbanks for a castaway picnic. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy the frequent company of spinner dolphins and pilot whales as you cruise the lapis-lazuli blues.
Playtime Thoughwe’dbe happy enoughdoing absolutely zero in a place this beautiful, there are endless activities to choose from. You can traverse the crystal lagoon with kayaks and catamarans, or up the adrenaline with kitesurfing, X-Jetblades, jet-skis or Seabobs. Then there’s the diving: explore kaleidoscope sea-life, coral-filled overhangs, vibrant thilas (underwater pinnacles) and undisturbed wrecks, or expand your knowledge with courses from Enriched Air Nitrox to Underwater Photography. Vitamin Sea Voavah’s very own wellness sanctuary, The Ocean of Consciousness Spa, offers bespoke treatments designed to “elevate awareness, transform actions and help individuals awaken to their power to affect wide-reaching change”. Guests can also take part in yoga, meditation and pranayama classes, and high-end beauty treatments – there’s even a Rossano Ferretti hair consultant on call.
