Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru has unveiled a Hologram Room that offers a magical “underwater” manta experience for the whole family where no one gets wet.
The first of its kind in the Maldives, the unique hologram programmes are based on real manta rays seen in the surrounding waters of the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, offering an extraordinary opportunity to virtually “swim” with manta rays, as well as other marine creatures such as the humpback whale, seahorse and mimic octopus.
Two daily sessions of 30 to 45 minutes are hosted at the resort’s Marine Discovery Centre, offering guests of all ages colourful interactive opportunities to explore a life-size underwater wonderland. This mesmerising, dry-land adventure – easily navigated through the state-of-the-art Hologram Room using a dedicated wand – is bound to cast a spell on young explorers, opening their eyes to an entirely new world.
The Hologram Room can be enjoyed on its own, or as an additional experience after or before heading out to see a real-life manta mass aggregation, a sensational seasonal occurrence (on a regular basis between June and November) close to the resort.
Advanced Hologram Room bookings are essential as spaces are limited. Children should be able to wear the hologram glasses; they are suited to most children aged four years and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
