From the warm welcome when we first arrived by the head chef to discuss our food preferences to the villa itself, it was an absolutely unforgettable trip.The food buffets (at breakfast... More

Recently my husband and I went to Gili Lankanfushi for our 40th Wedding anniversary as a special treat to each other. It was everything we hoped it would be. Service and staff were fantastic and the resort made us feel special. One of the highlights was a 2 hour snorkel with a marine biologist. We learnt so much and of... More

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our honeymoon at Gili Lankanfushi! It was gorgeous, calm and relaxing. When we arrived, our Mr. Friday had drawn us a bubble bath in the outdoor (but walled in) tub, complete with rose petals floating in the bubbles. There was also a heart made of towels and rose petals on the beautiful bed.... More

We are a group of 4 adults and 4 kids. We enjoyed staying in the Private Reserve, a humongous mansion on the sea, 2 master bedrooms connected by wooden bridge, another bedroom on the 2nd floor, a slide to the coral pool, a gym room and a spa room. It's beautifully designed and its very close to the coral reef.... More

I usually don’t take the time to write reviews and when it comes to 5 star rated hotels, believe me I’m quite the snob. Gili was just paradise. I felt I owed it to them to write a review. The hotel deserves all the accolades that it gets. The is nothing new to add to the hundreds of reviews that... 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
