Does it get any more luxe than cruising in the Maldives on a private yacht? When the yacht belongs to hotel brand Four Seasons, it certainly does!.
All-inclusive private cruise itineraries on the Four Seasons Explorer of 3, 4 and 7-nights are available and any number of nights (with a minimum of three) can be tailored accordingly. Charter groups can choose to use the boat as a dedicated dive, surf or leisure vessel to visit island communities in some of the world’s most isolated atolls or just host an unforgettable party.
No detail is too small. The boat’s private chefs will work with guests to design menus for every meal, while a pre-ordered selection of preferred spirits, wines and champagne ensures that every soirée carries a personal stamp of approval. Charter groups can also plan treatments with the on-board spa therapist on a remote island or embark on thrilling personal snorkeling excursions with their very own marine biologist. The boat’s highly experienced dive team offers 12 specialty courses as well as tailored programs for any individual wishing to progress their skills—or simply enjoy some of the country’s finest dive sites.
The Cruise Director and his team are on hand to plan personalized daily programs, from island excursions to fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, a beachside lunch picnic or a starlit barbecue on a deserted island. Then there are the once-in-a-lifetime wonders that a Four Seasons Explorer cruise can bring: from bow-riding dolphins to snorkeling with majestic manta rays and elusive whale sharks at remote hotspots that the boat’s team is privy to.
Most everything is included too; charter rates include food and non-alcoholic beverages, diving gear and escorted dives, snorkeling, water sports and private island excursions—not to mention the exclusive attention of 23 of the Maldives’ most experienced and amiable staff and on-board experts. At every moment, guests will be pampered with impeccable Four Seasons service.
The Boat has ten spacious Staterooms (215 ft2/20 m2) and one Explorer Suite (484 ft2/45m2), known as the ultimate at-sea indulgence. With a superlative indoor and outdoor restaurant, two bars, a lounge and library, plus two sun decks, the Four Seasons Explorer offers a level of space and luxury unmatched in the Maldivian cruise industry. Twice daily housekeeping, complimentary wireless internet and same-day laundry facilities complete all the luxury trappings of a land-based resort.
Rates start around $2,500 per room, per night.
