Mantas and Secret Barrels at Four Seasons Landaa, Maldives

by Tropicsurf Blog November 29, 2018

TS SALES MANAGER, JENNI EDWARDS

Talk about WOW factor! The Beach Villas have a huge outdoor lounge and dining pavilion with a mezzanine level reached by spiral staircase. The perfect cubby ‘tree-house’, complete with hammock and day bed from which to stare out to sea.

Turtle Hospitals are fascinating, especially for an aspiring vet! The marine scientists on staff gave freely of their knowledge and welcomed guests of all ages. Teamed with a turtle snorkeling trip, this made for an unforgettable experience.

Anti-gravity yoga involves a lot of hanging from silk hammocks - and not in the usual, afternoon nap kind of way. It’s really quite good.

ROSS (Director of TS) AND DI PHILLIPS

Never catch a buggy. Instead ride your personally monikored tredley everywhere.

Book an appointment with the Ayurvedic doctor to learn what your Dosha is and how that effects your health and emotions. Highly recommended.

Book the ‘Manta on Call’ program. It’s a must! They provide a local phone and when their spotters locate large schools of manta rays, they’ll call you and if you can be on the boat in half an hour, you will be on the edge of your mask and snorkel swimming close up with these friendly giants.

There’s an incredible barreling right-hander 45 minutes from the resort. It’s a closely guarded secret. In fact there are around 20 breaks within access of the resort and they are mostly virgin or empty. Yes they receive less swell and can be a bit fickle. But you’ll frequently surf alone. Worst case if it’s too small, the resort will (subject to availability) allow you to transfer your paid room to Kuda Huraa to surf the more consistent breaks there.

Still in his early twenties, Noosa-raised Woody Gooch might be termed an enfant terrible of the photographic world, except that there is nothing childlike about the incredible body of his work, and his persona, far from being frightening, is the dreamy presence of the skatey/surfer/adventurer that he is.

I’m Mike, Tropicsurf’s program manager stationed at our newest property, One&Only Mandarina. Perched amongst an unspoiled pocket of Nayarit’s tropical coastline, Mandarina leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered another world, despite being located just a stones-throw from Punta Mita. I reside at Mandarina with my fiancé Katia who hails from Mexico and together, we’re having the time of our lives as we explore this picturesque pocket of the world and everything it has to offer together.

Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew
Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew

September 16, 2020

The Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated landmasses on the planet. You feel the immensity of that isolation most clearly while bobbing in the ocean there. The cobalt Pacific’s deep-sea currents and swells detonate over Hawaii’s shallow reefs, creating explosive displays of barreling raw nature that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
