If you are keen for a luxurious eco-adventurous holiday, then Four Seasons Resorts Maldives has just the thing for you. The brand’s floating resort, Four Seasons Explorer, will be sailing to some of the best diving destinations in the Indian Ocean’s abundant waters, complete with gourmet dining, spa therapies, water sports, and island visits. You may choose from the two seasonal cruise routes – ‘Summer of Mantas’ and ‘Winter of Wonders’ across 3-, 4- & 7-night all-inclusive itineraries, available to a maximum of 22 guests at a time on the 39-metre (128 feet), three-deck vessel.

Staterooms offer great sea-views


From now until May 29, 2022 (and again from October 31 to December 18, 2022), the Winter of Wonders cruises includes visits to five atolls, from coral-ceilinged caves to camera-happy sharks, swim-through tunnels to a fish-filled wreck. Winter of Wonders cruises sail between Four Seasons two sister Maldivian Resorts on a 3-, 4- and 7-night itinerary, departing from Kuda Huraa on Mondays and Landaa Giraavaru on Thursdays.

From June 27 to October 31, 2022, itineraries change to Summer of Mantas, in line with the huge seasonal aggregations of manta rays and whale sharks that come to the region to feed. Get up close and personal with the world’s largest known population of manta rays alongside The Manta Trust team dedicated to studying them during an epic gentle giant odyssey through the Baa Atoll (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) and into Rasdhoo, North and South Ari Atolls. Summer of Mantas cruises depart from and arrive back to Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru on a 3-,4- and 7-night itinerary.
