There was a great deal of research went into choosing a Honeymoon destination by both myself and my travel agent and friend from Travel Associates at Main Beach Qld. I was given many choices but could not be happier with the eventual destination.
From the time we stepped off the plane in Male the experience has been second to none. We were fortunate enough to stay in a Crusoe Suite and the accommodation can only be described as spectacular. Every infinite detail has been taken into account with the accommodation and the setting has come straight from a travel brochure. The warm and crystal clear waters seem to go on forever and the serenity of the isolation forces relaxation like no other venue I have experienced before (and there has been plenty)
Our "Mr Friday", Rasheed, is only a phone call away to make any arrangements we could ever ask for and nothing is too much trouble. He and the other staff make all the resort experiences truly enjoyable.
Surprises occur each day at Gili Lankanfushi by way of the food. The lunch time Live Stations really need to be experiences to be believed. At no stage did I possibly think one of the highlights in such an incredible but isolated place could be the food but it is. The themed meals gives you the chance to experience the best of the best from around the globe. (My personal favourite was the Asian Market) Only the best local and sourced produce is used and the isolation of the destination certainly doesn't inhibit the attention to quality.
Finally the management from Gili Lankanfushi. Never before have I met an entire team so dedicated to making sure every aspect of your stay is to the standards they and you expect. There is no more accessible management then this team, so much so that their personal contacts are on speed dial on your room phone should they be required. Upon meeting the team regularly on the island, they genuinely want feedback from their guests to make sure all that can be done is being done. Quite frankly, they are just the sort of blokes you want to have a beer with.
I am not one for writing reviews but this place is that good that it is impossible not to write one. Anyone looking for as Maldivian destination - THIS IS IT!!!!
- 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.
