Fantastic water villas and resort, integrated well with nature, relatively close to a marine protected area and to the Male airport. Excellent restoration (great selection, ecological and gourmet dinning) and service, with friendly and resourceful staff. Great for both relaxation for couples and families. If you look for a quality vacation in paradise, you will get it in Gili Lankanfushi.

Reading all the fab reviews and watching all the pictures, we were afraid to be disappointed, but we weren't. The place is as amazing as all the other reviewers wrote, and much more beautiful in reality than in the photos. If you have the money, don't hesitate.

It is difficult to find the words to describe Gili Lankanfushi. Simply put: it is paradise. Absolute perfection from the moment you are collected at the airport in Male to the moment you, sadly, have to leave and return home. We stayed in villa 21. I would thoroughly recommend the pontoon with villas 24 – 18 as they have a... More

This has been one of the best resorts I have been to, so far. You are gifted with privacy and breathtaking views at every angle. From the colorful sea to white sandy beaches to greenery, nature has blessed this place. On top of it, architectural elements are magnificently appreciative. Detailing is done excellently.

We had a chance to stay at the Gili Lankanfushi resort in Maldives this month for about a week, and it was, simply put, fantastic. Everything was great. There was nothing to complain about. Before we came, we were struggling to choose between Four Seasons, Boros, and Gili, but decided to take a chance on Gili because it was more... More
