Me and my wife had the opportunity of staying at this lovely hotel for 02 nights. It was an amazing experience we will never forget. Experience starts with the warm welcome at the Male airport and you are pampered in their lounge till you wait for your sea plane to takeoff. The same warm welcome was extended upon arrival at...

I would rank it 4 stars. The service is excellent and by far the best I've ever had anywhere. Most food is good, although expensive. The setting isn't glitzy, it's more natural, so you have to like unmanicured areas and a resort that is more "green". I do think they could do a much better job with their upkeep of... More

Perfect place for couples. Quiet, private and mostly children free. We had a beach villa and were not disappointed at all with the views or the comfort. Snorkelling around the atoll was great. We even saw a couple of sea turtles Prices were not as expensive as we were expecting. Night activities were way too quiet. Overall a stunning place

We have been here many times since 2004 and the essential ingredients remain the same. Bare foot luxury in a fantastic setting. The food particularly in the Veli Cafe is excellent and special lunches at Jehunuhura island are a must. Service is always excellent and many of the staff have stayed for years and have huge pride in the place.... More

Kanuhura is a good hotel. It's location on the outer part of the atoll allows for excellent marine wildlife close to the hotel, albeit it has only one coral reef per se, at the eastern side ( we did see an abundance of tropical fish, sea turtles, reef sharks and small rays while snorkeling or walking on the beach). Still... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 26 natural atolls which make up the Maldives, contain some 1200 coral islands, infinite sandbanks and reefs spread over90,000 square kilometres of Indian Ocean. Only 200 of these islands are inhabited, while an additional 90 have been transformed into resorts. Kanuhura is located on the eastern rim of Lhaviyani Atoll, on its own private island. Famed for its laid-back luxury and authentic, natural Maldivian charm, the award-winning resort offers the highest standards of accommodation, service and culinary experience. Every effort has been made to retain the natural beauty of the island and wherever possible, employ the use of only natural materials. The island measures approximately 1000 meters in length and 200 meters in width, with a north-south orientation. It offers the best in watersports and diving. Travel is by seaplane and is around 40 minutes from the international airport at the Maldives capital, Male. The seaplanes, privately run by Maldivian Air Taxi Services, operate a schedule to accommodate international arrivals and departures. A private waiting lounge is available for guests of Kanuhura. ... more   less
