What a paradise!
In addition to the impeccable cleanliness and comfort of the facilities and room, the service at Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Huraa was top notch. Ms Branka and Mr Maximillian made us feel welcome at every moment, the Cafe Huraa team of Mr Ossama, Mr Ibbe and Mr Adam took such great care of us every day at breakfast, the Kids Club with Ms Raee was much loved by our daughter. And finally Ms Raquel at the Spa works magic with tense muscles, and Mr Harsha at the tennis court helped polish my shots - big thanks to everyone for a perfect stay!

What an amazing trip to the ultimate paradise island. We were very lucky to be able to return to Kuda Huraa over the recent festive period following all of the uncertainty with the global COVID crisis. Having visited the resort a number of times before, we had a longer trip planned this time with 10 of us going including grandparents and my brother's young family. Given our previous experiences, we certainly had high expectations but once again we were blown away.

It's fair to say that every touch point you have with the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa operation is excellent. We booked this trip 2 years in advance and right from the start, you get the feeling that everyone at the resort really cares about your experience with them. The booking process was ably managed by the Director of Rooms, Maximilian, who we had met a year before and who was more than happy to deal with even the smallest query. We went through a full cancellation of the trip due to COVID restrictions, and then rebooking the whole thing as the travel corridor became available, and all of it was seamless.

With all the stress and concern about travelling during the pandemic, it feels like the Maldives have got it just right. With pre-travel tests for all passengers on the planes, and precautions at both the airport, transfers and in resort, the risks felt well managed.

On arrival we were met by many of the staff who we had met before, which was a lovely welcome, and also the two babysitters, Shiu and Jumma. There's no question that the quality of childcare at Kuda Huraa is the best we have experienced at any resort, and certainly in the Maldives. Kuda Huraa benefits both from a proximity to Male, and also to the neighbouring Huraa island, and it really shows in the depth of really capable and experienced babysitters/nannies they have in resort. Shiu and Jumma both had such a reassuringly calm and confident approach that made it easy to enjoy the evenings right from the start of the holiday.

The food at Kuda Huraa was once again incredible with the three signature restaurants, Baraabaru, Kandu Grill, and Reef Club, never putting a foot wrong. Breakfast and lunch were both just what we wanted and we were well looked after by Wasiu and Nishan who quickly picked up on the idiosyncrasies of our large group and had limitless patience entertaining the little ones. It is a real credit to the two managers of these restaurants, Joseph and Branka, that both the food and service is consistently excellent. They also couldn't be more helpful in trying to make your night extra special, even when you arrive with a party of 10 without a booking on one of the busiest evenings of the year!

All of the bar staff deserve a big mention. Das, Brian, and Danu in the Sunset Lounge, and Didi at the Pool Bar, all make you feel very welcome, and always have something delicious and refreshing to enjoy while crab racing, fish feeding, or just watching the sun go down.

No trip to Kuda Huraa would be complete without enjoying some of the ocean activities on offer and this time we swapped our fins and masks for 9ft surfboards. Having never done this before we were quickly into the swing of it through the excellent coaching of Hamish and Holly at Tropic Surf. They had our 7y/o daughter standing up on her first day and from then on we never looked back. Even the grandparents had a go!

The other activity that stood out was the turtle snorkelling and sand bank BBQ we did one day. We took a boat to the other side of the atoll and had the most amazing hour swimming with turtles watching them dive and feed on the coral. Once we had finished, on the way back, the resort had arranged for a BBQ to be set up on a deserted sand bank in the middle of the ocean and we enjoyed the most fantastic lunch while the sea gently lapped the sand. Big praise has to go to Oppo from the recreation centre for his cheffing that day, what a treat.

Sometimes it's hard to put your finger on what makes a place really special. There is no question that the location at Kuda Huraa is truly stunning and the facilities, food and drink are out of this world, but the difference from the other places we have been to in the Maldives, and elsewhere, comes back to the people at the top and the operational culture they have created on the island. All the staff genuinely seem to enjoy working there. There is no doubt Randy Shimabuku really cares about each and every guest's experience at Kuda Huraa, but you get the feeling he cares about his staff just as much.

Before I finish this rather long review of the Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Huraa, a couple more mentions:

Firstly Ahmed on the front desk who always seemed to have a solution to a problem before we knew if was a problem.

And secondly Shaheen from housekeeping, who we got to know a few years ago when he looked after our bungalow, and has since moved onto a different job where we don't see him at all but he always makes a point of finding me and saying hello and asking about the family. It's these little touches.

Every year we say we must try somewhere else, and every year we can't bear to miss out on our Kuda Huraa fix. it's such a special place.

Room tip: For Dec/Jan, the ocean breeze is nice and cooling on the sunrise side.
