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

Wonderful team of staff , setting great standards of service and professionalism and particularly very friendly .All guests happy with their own company , therefore refreshingly tranquil at the pool , bar , restaurant and Spa. We took full advantage of the Spa and left the Island seven days later totally recharged .. Booked immediately for next year !

Our third stay at Gili was again an outstanding experience. Starting with the welcome ceremony at the Gili Jetty, meeting staff who serviced us already at our previous stays and remembered us, that is what makes the stay at Gili so comfortable: You feel coming home. Thanks again to the team who provided more than perfect service. We will come... More

Over our 4 day stay at Gilli we discovered that every single facet of the hotel was outstanding. From the friendliness and hospitality of staff to the diverse range of foods, we were constantly amazed at how superb the hotel was. Coupled with this, the activities we partook in; diving and the dolphin boat ride were absolutely incredible and I... 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
