On arrival of the Male airport, you will be greeted by the friendly representative of Gili waiting at the arrival hall. Upon reaching the island, you will be surprised to see the GM welcoming the guests at the jetty itself which is a rare cases in most of the hotels and resorts in the world. We will given a villa...

The mind boggles at how one resort could be so perfect. Everything from the food, service, serenity, staff, bob at breakfast (you will know when you go) even down to the weather, it was all perfect. My wife and I stayed for 8 nights for our anniversary, my wife was pregnant at the time but the staff were still able... More

Dec 2013, from wet and cold England to Gili Lankanfushi, with my wife when she was 19 week pregnant. It was our second time to the Maldives and we had high expectation on Gili. We have stayed various top brand/botique hotels around the world and Gili definitely stands out. Service was very personal while not too intimitating. Our Mr Friday... More

Nice experience, friendly staff, delicious food, Crystal clear water, only 20 min by speed boat from the airport, beautiful beach. The room was spotless, and larger than your typical single bed hotel room, safe and quiet location. First class services done with discretion and expertise by the spa team. Definitely a place to return. =) Cheers...

It's difficult to describe the unique and amazing experience of Gili Lankanfushi. You might call it "casual luxury" -- five-stars, but no shoes. It's got everything you want in a world-class hotel: unrivaled service, phenomenal food, impeccable amenities, beautifully appointed rooms, once-in-a-lifetime activities. But it's also relaxed, laid-back, and unassuming. You don't have to dress up for dinner, you don't... More

Hi there Amanda Reading out your recent review to the team yesterday, gave us all a fantastic start to the day and the fact that we had a light drizzle outside was negated by the wonderful warmth from your comments on Gili. I particularly liked your mention of "Casual luxury". We often use the phrase "Uber No shoes Luxury" but... More

Visited this hotel with my wife for the first time in May 2014 being very frequent travelers to Maldives for the last 12 years. This resort gives you the sense of a small village & using bikes to go to move around adds to its charm. One advantage here is that they let guests stay in a small villa with... More

Gili has the most outstanding water villa. I love the spacious sundeck and the rustic Robinson Crusoe theme.You can see sharks, unicorns, plenty of marine life around you. They provide bicycles that make getting around easy and fun. Since I'm scared to fall and my daughter doesn't know how to bike, I love that they're thoughtful enough to have the... More
