My partner and I recently stayed at Gili Lankanfushi in one of the Villa's and from the moment we arrived we were blown away by this incredible resort! Gili offers not only private luxury in its picturesque over the water villa's but it has an earthy and natural and warm feel! We were treated to the highest quality of spa... More

Spent 5 days over Easter at Gilli and it went by in a flash. We were totally surprised by the high quality of the food and choice available which is comparable to high end establishments we visit in Singapore. The cave dining experience with wine pairing is a must along with a visit to the Japanese by the sea restaurant... More

If there was one word to describe paradise then this is the place to come. As i arrived by boat which is only 20 mins from male i was greeted by the Duty Manager of the resort Mr Steven Phillips who was very warm and welcoming making me feel right at home. The villas were out of this world. Have... More

Everything you could want in an exotic paradise. The villas were amazingly spacious. Every little detail was thought out--there are even speakers all throughout the villa and an iPod hook up to listen to whatever music you like. They even have an iPod already in the rooms with preloaded music. The hosts were phenomenal. Our Mrs Friday (Meyhe) was truly... More

By far the most relaxing, luxurious, welcoming hotel. We stayed at another resort after and wish we stayed at Gilli the whole time. Barefoot luxury is the way to go! The bungalows are huge, the water crystal clear, service was the BEST!

My wife and I decided to choose three hotels in the Maldives. The first was the Taj Exotica, afterwards the Gili Lankanfushi and finally the Anantara Kihavah. We love the Taj as described in my review on the Taj Exotica. But the Gili was the best of the trip. Everything was perfect. We left the Taj Exotica by speedboat and... More

Vacationing with 2 active boys (10 and 7) is never a 100% vacation, but I would have to say out of all the trips we have made, this was a true vacation in paradise. 5 days in March at Gili Lankanfushi was not enough. I did not want to leave this place. We were greeted with a smile the moment... More

Good evening! Gili Lankanfushi is in the very fortunate position to ensure a huge repeater guest ratio and last week we had a couple who returned for the 13th time. Each time a guest like yourselves return, the pressure on the team to exceed your expectations and memories, is one that the hosts thoroughly enjoy and strive on. Thanks so... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives is a short 20 minute boat ride from Male, the capital of the Maldives.It is a tiny coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villas. The forty-four stilted villas plus the vast Private Reserve are crafted in a traditional style from natural materials and offer roof-top and over-water sundecks, featuring open air bathrooms, sumptuous daybeds and a personal entertainment center. For ultimate privacy, we have seven Crusoe Residences that are only accessible by personal boat. Come ashore for some great dining and equally great wines or perhaps a romantic moonlit dinner delivered right to the villa. The possibilities are endless.The interior decoration has been devised to recreate a natural habitat, using sustainable woods, natural materials and traditional fabrics, whilst still offering all the modern day amenities and creature comforts of true luxury. At Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives we are very sensitive to the environment. The utmost care has been taken in developing the island with respect to its ecological balance.The Maldives is a paradise for snorkeling and diving and the resort has its own fully -equipped PADI diving school plus a variety of water sports. This place tops the list of must-do destinations for those in the know. ... more   less
