This review was written by my 12 yo daughter last week, on our way home from Gili: I have just experienced a trip of a life time staying at Gili Lankanfushi. With bikes to ride around on and buggy's to take you places when the weather is wet, I guarantee you will fall in love with it as soon as... 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... Gili Lankanfushi is a resort on... More

"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

This was our 3rd holiday in the Maldives and it just keeps getting better. Gorgeous water. Our last holiday resort had great water, but horrible snorkeling. Gili has really nice coral areas with beautiful fish, as well as a whole coral-growth-refurbishment section. The best food...literally! I think I took almost as many pictures of the food as I did of... More

If u want to visit Maldives, what could be better than staying in lankanfushi resort! 20 minutes by speed boat from Male airport. Guest Privacy and high quality service is their motto. Needless to say the beaches and jetties are awesome. Their water villa is spacious and designed on hut style theme. You view blue/ green water from every corner... More

Quite simply Gili Lankanfushi is the best resort in the Maldives. The food is the best at any resort I have ever visited (and I have visited quite a few in Mexico, Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Maldives, Greece, Italy, etc...). My favourites were the Maldivian dishes and the Asian Street Food night. Craig and Chef John really outdid themselves... 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
