Gili was far and away the best resort experience I've ever had, or will probably ever have. I just don't see how it's possible to top Gili. I'll admit - I'm a slave to my phone like many others, and the fact I was able to leave my phone and email basically unattended for days speaks to how amazing Gili... More

This is our 8th stay in Gili and it increasingly feels like a home away from home for us. This is thanks to the whole team that makes sure you are pampered as soon as you land. First, the management team is top notch, extremely friendly and approachable (thank you to GM Steven Phillips, Resort Manager Brad Calder and F&B... More

In 2014, I did a lot of research into this trip to the Maldives planned for March 2015. Gili Lankanfushi came up time and time again as the place to stay. Hence I was delighted and not at all surprised when this multi award winning hotel won worlds No 1 hotel for 2015 on Trip Advisor. I am well traveled,... More

We've been lucky and grateful that we are regular visitors of the Maldives and Gili is among 7 top-notch resorts that we've visited here and by far the best in terms of service and overall quality. We stayed in Villa Suite # 43 on jetty 3 and loved it. Jetty 3 used to have smaller outside decks but were recently... More

Ok, listen first off, the pictures, the reviews, what people are saying about this place will NOT DO IT JUSTICE. If you are thinking about going to Gili, don't think about the price, just GO! I'm telling you! My husband and I had been tossing around ideas for our 2 year belated honeymoon, you know, the usually places, Bora Bora,... More

We have been very, very lucky to have visited some amazing places and stayed in some wonderful venues. Gili Lankanfushi surpasses all of them. Everything is thought of, everything. You are whisked away from the airport and reach this stunning island by speedboat, having discarded your shoes. There are too many highlights to mention, but here goes. Every view, every... More

We had a great time at Gili Lankanfushi. We'd been to the Maldives once before, and were *extremely* pleased with our prior hotel, but impressively, Gili improved on almost everything. The island and the hotel itself is gorgeous. The beaches and pathways are beautifully manicured. The main, white sand beach has a beautiful view and sandy bottom, and straight away,... More

Where do i even start with this resort paradise! Everything about this resort is just perfect. This was my second time to the Maldives (different resort the first time) so the expectation was pretty high.

We have just spent 11 nights in a Crusoe villa (No. 7 of 7, the furthest away Crusoe). On the whole we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay; impeccable service, wonderful food and great weather. The fact the resort is a brief speedboat ride away as opposed to needing a seaplane is a bonus for me. What makes this place so... More
