Dreaming of a Blue Christmas: Four Seasons Maldives' Underwater Christmas Tree

December 23, 2011 By:Christopher Roney

The title pretty much says it all:  The Four Seasons Maldives is crafting an underwater christmas tree from living coral fragments that will grow into a natural part of the reef below the hotel.  Not only is the coral formation festive in its own right, it will also contribute to the preservation of the reef habitat, a natural wonder that is growing ever scarcer.  That's certainly getting into the tropical Christmas spirit:  Giving back to the natural habitat while promoting beauty and luxury. And you can even track the progress of the reef online at Reefscapers.  

The resort itself is a wonderful beachfront property that is everything you imagine when you think of the classic tropical getaway:  expansive beaches, blue skies and even bluer waters, and intimate and comfortable rooms and suites.  The private coral island even has its own Explorer catamaran for traversing the open waters.  Be sure to stop by the Four Seasons Maldives and enjoy this beautiful work of natural artwork that will become a fixture of their underwater landscape for years to come.
