Enjoyed our visit to kanuhura. Food was very good, it seems most likely Asian but we loved it. Good facilities throughout the island and an excellent housereef for snorkeling. Staff were very attentive and we did definitely and we'd definitely consider going back someday. Big thank you to Sha and Act.Asst FO manager.

Given the price of the stay it is the worst hotel I have been in the last couple of years. The promo video lies: only one restaurant worked for the majority of time (and half of menu was not available), the French fries always looked poorer than in McDonalds (that happens when you cook on the same oil for months),...

- Communications problem - we booked the room with the reservation manager and after he left the company no one checked his mail box to address our questions. We had to phone to find out what was going on to make sure our booking and seaplanes schedules were attended to properly. This was not acceptable for a resort of Kanuhura... More

We stayed at Kanuhura Resort for 9 days. The island is beautiful, the beach perfect and the main pool area very nice. Service was very good in the restaurants and around the pool section, however, the butler service was quite average. Parked his cleaning wagon in front of our water villa, forgot things and cleaned with average quality. Main drawback... More

We had another lovely stay in Kanuhura over Easter. The island is beautiful - small and not crowded even when full. The staff are amazing and somehow they manage to retain the luxury but chilled out atmosphere. Highlights for us other than the island was the Dive team; the kids club, the marine biologist; the chilled out bars and relaxed... More
