- 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

We absolutely love this place. My son (8 years) and I went during the February half term break. The place was full with children which was excellent as my son had plenty of company. The kids club was absolutely fantastic, Pratima and her team had a well thought through programme for the children, plus the marine biologist was the cherry... More

We had a really lovely relaxing holiday at Kanuhura and were lucky enough to have one of the best situated rooms on the sunrise side of the island - it could not have been better. The staff are first class, nothing is too much trouble and without exception they were all charming and helpful. One very small criticism is the... More

We arrived to celebrate our 25th Anniversary having spent a few days in busy Bangkok. It was a welcome solitude of calm and service. Highly recommended and we will visit again. The food was fantastic and varied, the availability of the activities very good and the level of service excellent throughout. In 2016 renovations are taking place which will further... More

Kanahuru is simply fantastic. Crystal clear turquoise sea, wonderfully attentive service, great food, amazing diving, dolphins, beach - the list could go on. Water villas are amazing and definitely worthy of a splurge - if not, then beachside villa on east coast (quieter side). Yes, the resort needs a little renovation in places (planned in 2016?) but this adds rustic... More
