The one star lost is for the sea grass around the southern beach which made the island less beautiful.Rumor says that the food in this island is much better... More

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

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
