Our stay at Gili Lankanfushi was beyond perfect in every imaginable way possible! When we arrived, staff members greeted us at the airport took our bags and brought us to the boat to take us to the resort. The boat was right next to the airport. The staff gave us bottles of water and took our shoes and the resort... More

I hate arriving at new resorts. There’s the greeting party including the manager, smiling on the dock and ready to welcome you to their beautiful home. And I rock up jet lagged from the red-eye, half deaf from the jet engines and depressurizing descent, and semi-poisoned from cabin air. Disorientated and grumpy for 24 hours, I feel sorry for them…... More

It goes without saying that you visit to a place like Gili Lankanfushi with highest of expectations. Nevertheless, we were still completely blown away. Gili is small island located ~20mins by speed boat from Male. It is a sanctuary, it is beautiful, the food is incredible - everyone should go there. In our view, what really sets Gili apart, is...

Around this time last year I was in what I like to call 'paradise on earth' also known as Gili Lankanfushi in Maldives. The reason why it has taken me one year to publish this review is because I wanted to make sure that what I felt when I first got there was real and not just an illusion or... More

I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to start this review and what exactly to write. Our experience at Gili was SO perfect, SO out of this world, that it's hard to find the words to describe it and just how amazing it was. So I'll just start by telling you about it...

"Gila" means crazy in Malay.,. Where should we begin? This is our 5th trip to Maldives (yes we luv Maldives!) and Gili has been the best experience so far (this includes comparison with Baros and W where we have stayed previously). Everything in Gili is fantastic and made even more special due to its excellent service. It's really the entire... 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 rooftop 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 seeking the aquatic paradise. ... more   less
