Disembarking from your private seaplane, you cross a cerulean lagoon in the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve to the blindingly white sands of your own five-hectare (two- acre) wonderland where every moment of every experience is customized to your preferences…
At Four Seasons Private Island at Voavah, limitless island living is yours for the taking – and making. Voavah accommodates a single group of up to 22 guests across two vast villas and a Beach House – seven bedrooms in total – plus a dive and water sports centre, Ocean of Consciousness Spa, and exclusive use of Voavah Summer, a 19-metre (62 foot) yacht.

Here are five reasons why Voavah is the ultimate private island escape:
Voavah redefines the notion of “getting away from it all”. Only accessible by seaplane, in the middle of the Maldives’ most protected waters, there are no adjacent islands, other guests, prying eyes or paparazzi. Protected by endless ocean and a 24/7 security team, suddenly anything is possible – and the mesmerizing beauty of the surrounding natural wilderness only heightens the pervading sense of freedom and possibility.
2. BESPOKE EXPERIENCES
Fancy flying in one of the world’s best DJs for an all-night pool party complete with Ice Luge, Oyster & Vodka Bar? Or hosting a beach festival, with local bodu beru drummers and dancers? How about spending your days aboard your private yacht, Voavah Summer, identifying turtles, dolphins and manta rays with expert marine biologist guides? Or learning the latest hydrofoil water sports before dining around the world with a different cuisine at every mealtime? Voavah is the canvas: the itinerary is yours to craft.
3. BREATHTAKING NATURE
Voavah places you in the heart of the Baa Atoll, the Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, home to whale sharks, the world’s largest known population of manta rays, and some of the most vibrant marine ecosystems in the world. Step from your pristine beach into a ocean of colorful corals, thrilling thilas, turtles, rays and schools of beautiful fish for a dawn dive with a difference. You don’t even need to take a break from lounging in the Beach House to spot dancing dolphins, resident water hens and herons. With a private yacht and a team of the country’s most experienced boatmen, marine biologists and scientists at your disposal, sunset dolphin cruises, night snorkels, and seasonal manta and whale shark safaris can be arranged at a moment’s notice.
At the core of every Voavah experience is truly heartfelt service. Warm, welcoming, dedicated and discreet, your team of 28 staff are there to customize every moment of every day. Work with the team prior to arrival to help develop menus, accommodations, beverages and entertainment options – from additional dive instructors, marine biologists and water sports experts for ocean lovers to Ayurvedic physicians, reiki practitioners and more for those on a healing break.

Perhaps deeper even than privacy and luxury is Voavah’s invitation to step into the truest version of yourself. Here, away from life’s demands and expectations, the sense of expansiveness is as unfettered as the blue horizon.
