Starting in November, guests at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru enjoy new all-pool water villas that offer twice as much outside space as indoor space. The villa expansions bring outdoor space to nearly 2,000 square feet across multiple “zones,” including sun decks, social spots, over-water hammocks, al fresco showers and dining areas. A 40-foot pool extends into the lagoon; nearby, a shaded, ocean-side living and dining pavilion offers unparalleled views.

Inside, the pale wooden indoor floors give an illusion of sun bleaching. Light colors mix with dark blues to complement the outdoors, while never missing a glimpse of the views, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. New bathrooms give guests views from the bathtubs and direct deck access.

“In an ever-crowded world, luxury is increasingly sought in a sense of space and an ability to enjoy an unrestricted connection with the natural world. Our new water villas not only offer twice more space outside than in with pools that make you feel as though you are swimming out into the ocean but also extend upwards into a sea-view loft and downwards via steps into the ocean for an enhanced sense of space and connection in all directions,” said Armando Kraenzlin, general manager, regional vice president, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru.
