The World's First Private Hideaway in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Looks Like a Dream
In 2011, Baa Atoll in the Maldives was declared the Indian Ocean's first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve due to its "balance of man and nature, conservation and culture." Now, five years later, its first secret hideaway has opened, a two hectare space by Four Seasons, where guests can get up-close with the manta rays that can be spotted almost all-year-round.
The property consists of seven bedrooms (arranged on the beach), a dive school and 62-foot (18.9 meter) yacht that's perfect for fishing, watching sunsets, plus swimming with turtles and whale sharks. There's also a Beach House surrounded by pristine white sand and offering an open-air living room, dining room, kitchen, pool deck, gym, library and loft lounge.
As if that doesn't sound relaxing enough, the 24-hour security-protected place has an on-call culinary, spa, recreation, housekeeping and childcare team so guests can do whatever they want, whenever they like.
There's no word on how much it costs yet, but we're guessing it will set you back a fortune!
