I must admit I spent hours reading the reviews left by co-travellers on resort hotels in the Maldives. Then I found what seemed to be the perfect place I was looking for at Gili Lankanfushi. Now that I actually have come back from a week stay, I can confirm it fulfilled all my expectations and even more : the location and the villas are perfect, the water and the snorkelling superb, the food is...a total feast for the senses, the water activities, tennis, gym and above all yoga classes with the best instructor ever, Elmer, made our stay perfect. The proximity to Male has also helped a lot, after a 10 hours flight, you step out of the airport, cross a road, jump in a boat and 20 mn later you are in swimming costume in some pristine water...paradise on earth. I left the service for last...what can I say, the hosts anticipate your thoughts, your every move, they will do anything they can to satisfy the most demanding and capricious guest !
- 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
