I am not one to typically write a review. In fact, I have never written one. The entire Gili experience, however, simply blew me away. I had to share. My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in paradise for 7 days this July as part of our honeymoon. We have traveled to several top island destinations, but none... More

Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is simply in a class of its own. From the welcome at the airport to the farewell, the hotel staff makes sure you are the center of their attention. I have never experienced service this great anywhere in the world and would hands down recommend this resort to all--regardless of age or gender. The superb staff, the... More

We stayed for seven nights last August 2015, and we're going back this year. When choosing resort, we were almost going to book Jumeirah Dhevanafushi. But looking at photos again and again, I realised that we'd stay at fancy modern hotels in city but this is Maldives we were going to, it could be something like Maldivian. So, we booked... More

A week ago my mother and I returned after 8 wonderful days at Gili and we are still suffering from what she calls jetty-lag ;-). So that is my only warning with regard to this wonderful place: it will be very hard to leave and adjust to normal life again after having been pampered here. I have been to the... More

I think the staff must be trained to try not to say "no" to guests, because in six nights at Gili Lankanfushi, I never heard anyone say it. It makes me wonder how they deal with guests who are difficult, but then I guess people who are coming here are usually relaxed and happy! The resort was beautiful. We were... More

Been here twice! Never failed to amaze me....... The feeling of been here is soooooooooooo GOOD! Perfect location with only 30 minutes of boat rides. The room is so spacious, bath room with full amenities, and you may relax in your bath tub with a full view of the Ocean. It's just amazing!! The service by Ms. Friday is so... More

It is really a wonderful place, the staffs are nice, friendly and helpful. We love the policy "no news, no shoes", it make us feel relax in the island and close to nature. Also, the foods are so good that we hope we can eat more. Even though the island is quite small, we still have lot of things to... More

It is very difficult to find words that can capture how special Gili is. Spend your time sitting on your private ocean deck, gazing down at the baby sharks swimming past; take a trip in a speedboat with the resort's dedicated and very talented marine biologist to search for turtles and manta rays; enjoy some fresh sashimi paired with micro...
