Abstract: The present EIA concerns part of the new developments which will be taking place at the Four Seasons at Kuda Huraa and K. Bodu Huraa. The parts presented concern the operational part of the resort, in particular a tennis court, as well as the changes being brought to the access channel between Kuda Huraa and Bodu Huraa. A number of structures will infringe on the marine environment, in particular, the development of the tennis court as it will be built on reclaimed land from Bodu Huraa In addition, some deepening works will be carried out in the lagoon area to enable a create an improved swimming area on the western side, as well as easier boat movement to the arrival jetty and service area of the resort.Four Seasons operates two resorts in the Maldives. Kuda Huraa is the first property which was operated by Four Seasons in the Maldives. Landaa Giraavaru is a more modern resort on a larger island in Baa Atoll. To improve the standing of Kuda Huraa, some investments have been decided upon. This includes in particular a tennis court in Bodu Huraa, widening of the channel in between Kuda Huraa and Bodu Huraa, creation of a bathing area on the western side, with more practical and spacious amenities and making better use of the scarce land available. Overall, it is expected that the resort will become more attractive to both repeater guests and new guests looking for a luxurious experience in the Maldives. With the present development both the developer and operator hope to maintain the property among the top Maldivian properties.
