Four Seasons Explorer

Four Seasons Explorer is the smallest Four Seasons experience in the world. With only ten rooms and one suite, Four Seasons Explorer is a unique experience where a minimum stay of 3 nights is required.

I stayed in a State Room, and it was excellent for a boat. It was like staying in a standard room in a Four Seasons hotel, just smaller. 20 square metres, but the bathroom even had a bathtub. The bedroom had a flatscreen Tv, DVD-player, sitting area and a large comfortable bed.

I was on the boat for three days taking me from Kuda Huraa to Landaa Giravaru. When you enter the boat with the other guests, you get a very nice welcome from all staff before an orientation in the lounge. On the first night, you have dinner together with the other guests, and it’s a very social event. Very different from any other Four Seasons. One of the few things I don’t like about Four Seasons is that they charge for the internet, but not in this one where wireless satellite internet is complimentary.

The three-day program included islands tours and dive/snorkelling. I was on full board, and the food was good, but do not expect the same level as you’ll find in Four Seasons hotels. The staff were very nice and treated you a little different than other Four Seasons hotels. There were less privacy and a social experience. The staff is a mixed from both properties so they are well-trained as you would expect from Four Seasons.

The primary concern before the trip was if I would get seasick, but it was never a problem. The boat is very comfortable, and I would be surprised if any got any seasickness.

Overall a unique experience, it’s quite costly, but you get what you pay. There isn’t much on the internet about this experience so my review might be your only source. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the experience, just drop me an e-mail.

My opinion: Great+ experience.
