We have been to the Maldives several times and usually try to stay on smaller islands. Gangehi definitely ticks this box. We actually went twice last year so I will cover both stays here. When we first arrived, I must admit that I was skeptical. Especially after a long wait for the seaplane transfer and being informed that our luggage... More

It has been our great pleasure to welcome you to Gangehi Island Resort again. We are glad to know that you appreciated our small and peaceful island, the lush vegetation, the amazing house reef and our caring staff service. Seaplane company does not depend on the hotel. In case of overweight they can decide the maximum capacity of the seaplane.... More

Our initial reaction on arrival was that this place was beautiful and that we had made a wise choice when selecting this resort and the full board package. We were upgraded from a garden to beach bungalow for the first part of our stay and later moved to the deluxe over water bungalow. If you can afford it, pay the... More

We were so lucky to have found this little gem! It's small and private with few over water houses. Only 25mins seaplane from Male. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the buffet food was extraordinarily good, since the chefs are Italians! The sunset + happy hour by the Kandu bar is a must, but the food at the... More

We stayed at Gangehi for 5 nights in a water villa, having been upgraded from a beach villa. Very nice touch. We had a very good experience - but if you want a 'once in a lifetime' 5 star pampering for a honeymoon or anniversary - then I think you would be a touch disappointed. On the upside, seaplane transfer... More

Having visited the Maldives 5 Star Beach House in 2009, my expectations of this visit were based on that. Gangehi, while “Nice” is not 5 Star, so if you want luxurious accommodation and pampering from arrival to departure, this is probably not the place for you. However, our stay was nice and relaxing with everything you need at a reasonable... More

We booked Gangehi Island for 9 night in September. Having never stayed somewhere like this before, we had several questions from the outset, which an email to the staff on the Island solved quickly and efficiently. The island is small but beautiful. You could walk around the entire island in less than ten minutes. The sea is clear and warm... More

The first 12 hours at this resort I was extremely disappointed... However by the end of the trip the resort had grown on me, it was surprisingly charming. It lacks a few things here and there such as drinking water, there is no complimentary drinking water on the island. There are no Irons, you must send your ironing into the... More
