We had the pleasure of staying at the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa from Oct 28th to November 1. As the title of my review reads, we were absolutely stunned by the great service, attention to detail and just overall lovely service. Giovani and his team were just brilliant from the start to the end.
Now to get down to some details:
Firstly I am sure everyone is concerned about the whole Covid situation., and rightly so. But I can assure you the staff at this property takes more than enough care regarding this. The staff always wears masks while the guests are not required to in open areas (which is basically the 95% of the property). They take great precaution, the staff never leaves the island to ensure nobody can get infected, they pay attention to the smallest of details such as giving you a sanitized pen to sign your credit card slip or bill.
Second: Activities at the hotel –
The hotel offers a great variety of activities everyday to keep you engaged incase you like to do other things than enjoy the beach. We went for the Shark snorkeling tour, the dolphin safari, and the Manta ray tour. We were honestly stunned by the whole experience. The marine biologists in the resort make a delightful presentation before they take you out side for the activity. They are very well informed and delightful to talk to. Special credit to Filiipe and Andrea (they are the marine biologists) they were an absolute delight to speak to and really took extra care to make sure we saw every fish and have an unforgettable experience. Also Nooman and Zia from the recreations team who came along with us were just absolutely great really knowledgeable. Their company and their hospitality really left a mark on us.
Also just a note: the hotel itself has a nice reef on the property itself and we saw a stingray, shark, and tons of fish.
Third: Food and Beverage—
Our experience with food and beverage across really top end resorts across the world has never been great until this time around. The food was just amazing; they had a good À la Carte breakfast, and a scrumptious dinner. We really loved the Asian and the Indian food. Special mention and thanks to Joseph and Chef Long for really going the extra mile to make sure we were enjoying the food. Their extra effort and service really touched us.
Lastly I would really like to convey my appreciation for Hansini , Aditya and Ahmed at the front desk. They were the people who really set the impression from the start to the end. They were all fabulous in their conduct and super helpful and just really the “cherry on top” to make our trip super enjoyable.
The staff at this property really set the bar very high in terms of service. This is a stunning property with the most amazing staff, which provides flawless service to transport you to “relaxation heaven”. Would highly recommend everyone to experience the Service at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa. It is something else.
We really hope to visit again soon !
I wish I could rate more than five stars, because I’d give this resort and it’s staff A MILLION STARS RATING.
My husband and I after 17 years of marriage decided to renew our vows and decided to do it at the Four Seasons at Kuda Huraa. From the moment we arrived this vacation was a fairytale dream come true. This property is absolutely gorgeous, we spent seven days there and every day there was something new to do.
The Spa is at a separate island and they take you on a cute fishing boat (it’s a 4min ride) this spa is the best I’ve ever been in my life. We had a yoga session that was life changing followed by a body scrub and body massage. Shareef was in charge of planning the vows renewal ceremony and he did such an amazing job, he produced a beautiful a romantic event that was better than anything we had ever dreamed of. I didn’t have to lift a finger, they took care of every detail and it was flawless and so beautiful.
The food in this resort is absolutely top rated delicious, fresh, and innovative. Chef Daniele is amazing, he prepared the most decadent dishes and desserts for us during our stay and for our romantic dinner celebration. If you are planning on celebrating a wedding, engagement, birthday or any event I ABSOLUTELY recommend this amazing hotel for your event, they will make it absolutely unforgettable. Every day during our stay was even better, they have everything on site for you to have a fun, relaxing and unforgettable vacation. I recommend diving, sunrise kayaking, private tour with lunch to the sandbar, and sailing.
Every minute spent at the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa was sensational. This was definitely a vacation that we will never forget and we are already planning to go back soon.
In the Huraa restaurant there was Nisham a great person who made our lunches and dinners a great occasion. We miss him already. The secret of the place is the staff they are so nice and helpful and they love the place as much as the customers. Management treats the very well and they enjoy working there as if it’s their home.
