If you want a truly pristine island experience, enjoying all the natural wonders for which the Maldives is so justly famed, then few places will match the overall quality of experience at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru.
In summary, Ritz Carlton Maldives offers Kerry Hill architecture and the best service we've ever encountered in this atoll nation.
Perhaps one day Aman will open a property in the Maldives... for the time being though, this is as close as it gets.
I would consider this as more of a refuelling station than a proper place to spend any length of time. For my purposes on this particular trip, that suited me just fine. I was more than happy to head to the gate a few minutes before the boarding time, ready to experience 11 hours in First Class with my favourite airline!
I love the design, the abundance of natural light and the huge selection of food. The fact that they have cans of soda and small bottles that you can take away is great too.
Overall this lounge reminded me a lot of the Qantas lounge in Hong Kong and that is a very good thing. After experiencing this lounge I am now really looking forward to trying out LATAM's on board service!
