Designed for older children ages 8-12, Mission: Landaa Giraavaru is a complimentary new and exclusive kids’ program that encourages budding explorers to venture out into the wider wilderness of Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and immerse themselves in the island’s wonders and workings.
The carry-case style booklet contains 14 mission levels to challenge everything from kids’ creativity and accuracy to their skills in report-taking, behind-the-scenes investigation, and even bed-making.
Children can earn points through activities extending from transplanting coral reefs to interviewing their favourite member of staff, monitoring injured turtles in the Rehabilitation Centre to helping out in their favourite department. Educational and enlightening, further topics range from general Maldives knowledge to energy conservation, origami and endangered creatures. There’s even the opportunity to create a photomontage or video to be uploaded onto the Resort’s Facebook page.
Mission: Landaa Giraavaru is the sequel to Landaa’s Passport to Adventure program, which was launched in 2012 to introduce guests ages 4-8 to the island’s extraordinary natural wonders through a series of exciting challenges, puzzles and activities.
“Mission: Landaa Giraavaru is aimed at older kids, and those repeat guests who are looking for activities beyond the usual Kids’ Club experience,” explains Landaa’s Kids’ Club Coordinator Ilonka Sharmaine. “With such a wide range of nationalities and interests among our younger guests, we’ve focused on the two things that unite all children: the desire for a challenge and the excitement of finding out about new things.”
All children arriving at Landaa Giraavaru are presented with a gift from Kids’ Club, including their age-specific program booklet. And with Mission: Landaa Giraavaru poised to earn them a mystery prize, the stakes are as high as the excitement levels.
“We’re finding that the tweens market is rapidly increasing in confidence and creativity,” concludes Ilonka. “While still very much a kids’ program, Mission: Landaa Giraavaru is more of a statement of their independence. We can’t wait to see them whizzing around the island on their bikes, undertaking the various activities.”
