We stayed at Kanuhura for 9 nights and had the most amazing vacation ever. We had booked a water villa for this trip and the experience was truly astonishing. The resort was at full capacity when we were there but it felt like we had the island to ourselves. The Management and staff are fantastic and we are so grateful... More

Ignore any negative comments about this resort because they really are unfounded. We first visited Kanuhura in 2006 and it became our benchmark for all other holidays. We have since travelled extensively throughout Asia, Australia, Sth Africa and the US and having just returned from our 2nd visit we can still report that Kanuhura is still our benchmark for the...

Our second visit to the Kanuhura was delightful. The review we wrote last year is still valid: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g298337-d302450-Reviews-or30-Kanuhura-Kanuhura.html#REVIEWS. We didn't think it would be possible, but our second visit trumped the first one, which was outstanding in itself. The hotel is greatly appreciative of repeat visitors and has no problem in showing guests their pleasure in having them back. In... More

We have just return from Kanahura. This was our second time at Kanuhura; the first time we went was in 2006 when it was owned by One & Only. After reading a few negative reviews about the changes (mainly the food), we was not quite sure what to expect, as we had fell in love with the island the first... More

The hotel was ok but did not much with the price. Good service if what you ask was plan, they struggle with not plan demands. It is clear when you arrive that the hotel that it needs and urgent varnish on all the expose wood. Paying 10 times the price for a bottle of wine it is too much. For... More

This is our fifth visit to this fantastic amazing location. Everything a usual was perfect The resort had 100% occupancy but you can still walk round the island and only see a handful of people. Each of the beach villas has its own private secluded garden area providing shade if required. We stayed in a newly refurbished villa which was... More

This review is not for those who were saving all their lives to go to the Maldives for their cliché honeymoon and take their own water bottle at dinner (I witnessed that), nor is it for the management team to respond with a canned “we’ll do our best next time” email. It is for the seasoned traveller who is used... More

Had the most amazing stay. The service throughout was attentive but not over bearing. The rooms are of a very good quality and size. We had a beach villa just up from the water villas which was great for snorkelling and very private. We had buffet in the main restaurant included and we couldn't have been happier. Even though it...

The Resort is absolutely superb. The accommodation is first class and the food and service second to none. All the staff are extremely helpful and friendly but also very well trained and efficient. Drinks are eye- wateringly expensive! There is no alternative, of course, as there is only the one resort, so either accept this situation before going there, or... 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.

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.
