The hotel is very nice the staff are friendly (except for for some) but the overall stay of six day at Gili was very pleasurable. My wife enjoy the spa by the sea very much. The food was great the view is spectacular.

Without a doubt, this is the place to stay in the Maldives. Everything about the resort from the staff (a special shout out to SamJ, Yassir, Sammy, Debs, Dev, Steven, John) to the accommodations, activities, and food were outstanding!!

Idyllic location and wonderful service; absolutely brilliantly attentative staff with superb food. Tremendous breakfast served beach side which is a must. Also worth attending the Asian buffet where the food was delightful but the beach setting made it.

Gili Lankanfushi is the 2nd resort we've been to in the Maldives. As with our other visit, the aspect that distinguishes the Maldives for us is the service. Friendly, committed and excellent. We can't praise Gili highly enough on that aspect, that's for sure. We went for one of their over water residences (number 32). It was fantastically located at... More

We first visited this Island in October 2012 as we were engaged here, so it seemed only fitting to return here for the second week of our Honeymoon. It's probably fair to say in our opinion that this island just keeps getting better and better but crucially to us; more charming by the day. Apart from the continued excellent service... More
