We just return from Maldives 2 weeks ago. Our initial plan was to stay for only 4 nights, but ended up staying another extra 2 nights! 4 nights at Villa in Jetty 1, another 2 nights at Crusoe Residence. From the moment we arrived at the airport till the day we depart, Gili has done well with their hospitality. only... More

I have been chatting to my family since we returned from Gili yesterday afternoon, and the biggest problem is that there were too many amazing experiences for us to mention about our stay! My review would be 6pages long! We travelled to gili with our group of eight (5 family members and partners) and from the minute we got on... More

This hotel was so unique - so well worth the time of sharing our experience below. Pros: - Small hotel – there are ca. 45 villas only, all in the water. That frees-up the island, and although small, you can enjoy a large unattended beach and deserted trails. Outcome: you can hardly see or meet any people apart from the... More

We stayed here in early July and the occupancy was quite high, but we felt like we were the only people on the island, such is the privacy you can enjoy. We had a private speedboat transfer from our previous resort which was very comfortable. At the jetty we were greeted by the Resort general Manager and our Mr Friday,... More

My family and I stayed here for 5 glorious days last week. Simply put, it was the trip of a lifetime - the best beach holiday we have ever had. Maldives is already stunning in its natural beauty and any trip there, at any resort, would certainly be good. The clear water and coral reefs, the white powder-sand beaches, the... More

We actually stayed at Gili Lankanfushi in March 2013. We stayed in Crusoe Residence #2. Some reviewers said it could be noisy due to its' proximity to the boat landing, but the only thing we heard was the soothing sound of the water. If you can afford it, book one of the Crusoe residences. You won't regret it! The resort... More

We had a week at Gili Lankanfushi and my wife and I agree that this is the best resort experience that we have ever had. This is of course relative but we have stayed at resorts in Australia, Fiji, Vanuatu, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philipinnes.

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
