If LHW chooses a hotel, then it has to be great. Kanuhura matches it fully. The island is fantastic. The service is great. Our buttler Abdullah and chef at Veli Cafe were outstanding. The chef even dished out the most amazing biryani that we could ask for. We were upgraded to the water villa and that made our stay fantastic.... More

I have visited Kanuhura many times before. It is an ideal spot for quiet and tranquil rest. However, there was one very visible change this year in comparison to my previous stays in Kanuhura. The resident manager Tom Aniser managed to move the quality of already excellent services significantly higher. I dare say to the highest quality level. Thank you... More

I myself have been here three times already. My experience was overall highly positive. I hope that if any of the Kanuhura staff is reading this, if you could just say a big thank you to Anja and James from the watersports and diving please, they made a huge difference during my stay. The house reef is not as cool,... More

What a wonderful resort. Lots of choice of things to do, a super spa and great places to eat. Even a smaller sister island to explore. Accommodation was very spacious and well maintained. Service levels were very, very high with lots of personal care - we were definitely not a number. We had a great time and our 8 year... More

It was very hard choosing the resort in the Maldives as there are so many choices. We were so happy that we picked Kanuhura as it surpassed our expectations in many ways. We felt that the website and marketing material does not do justice to this resort. You can swim all around the island as it has the most beautiful... More

Stayed here in December of 2013; great resort but only issue we had was food for some of the vegetarians in our family. Before we booked we were told Chef would be very accommodating, but it was not the case when we reached there. The property itself was awesome and rooms we stayed were great too with balcony, which lead... More

We spent an amazing week at this establishment. The minute you land at Malé airport you are greeted by the attentive and welcoming staff of Kanuhura who provide outstanding service during the entire stay. We stayed in a sunrise beach villa which was very comfortable. We especially appreciated the outside bathroom which really makes you feel on vacation! This side... More

Kanuhura was the perfect location for our dream honeymoon. We traveled in the rainy season, but were so lucky that this only meant a short rain shower each afternoon (in time for a nap!) and a very quiet resort! It seemed like we had 4 staff members per each guest! Our butler, Adam, was awesome--he had wonderful recommendations and followed... More
