Food, drink, desserts are extrodinary. The staffs are warm welcome and friendly to kids. Special thanks to Mr. Friday Mustho whe had made things ran smoothly during our vacation.

Maldives was our dream location for honeymoon and Gili Lankanfushi is the perfect place to stay! The impeccable service, so genuine and friendly; the delicious meals, so fresh and never boring; the spacious over-water villa, so comfortable yet eco-friendly; the stunning view, the water so clear you can see the fishes swimming...the list goes on and on!

The Gili Lankanfushi was easily one of the best places I've ever stayed. It's everything you can imagine in terms of experiencing the Maldives in luxury with world class service. I encourage it for anyone who intends to visit.

Unbelievably beautiful, healthy, well-maintained and eco-friendly! Because the villas are over the water, the bugs were non-existent in the villas. Slept outside as much as we slept inside in the air condition. We stayed 10 days - stay as long as you can. It will take a few days to decompress before the serenity, beauty and calmness start soothing your... More

We stayed here for our honey moon. What a magical place, it is truly heaven on earth. One night we visited a small uninhabited island for dinner. It was covered in hermit crabs and the whitest sand. The cost is prohibitive but I would recommend it for a very special occasion.

Dear Will Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. Gili Lankanfushi is a very special island with a very special team and I can understand that going back to reality may have taken some getting used to, but I do hope the depression has subsided. If not the best cure is to plan another visit to our island as many... More

The moment I step inside our villa, I just cannot contain myself and my immediate involuntary response was WOW!! It is just top! The rustic feel of the room, the details they put in their villas (hangers, bell, DND sign, ice bucket etc..) and the entire resort is just amazing. I just want to stay in our villa for our... More

Its for sure a Hotel for couples. Honeymoon or the ones who needs to stay a while together, just the two of you. I recommend the stay for a week, because, it seems, after that, things start to be the same and maybe looses the magic. But, NO DOUBT, this is the best hotel for that purposes. Half board is...
