I can't begin to say enough wonderful things about this resort!
Upon arrival my husband and I were very ill (unrelated to the Gili Resort). The hotel could not be more accomodating, kind and worried about us the entire stay. Our "Mr.Friday" (his name was Shifaz- HIGHLY recommend requesting him if you plan to stay at this resort) was very attentive and constantly checked in on us, brought us medicine from the mainland in Male and ensured we were provided with the best level of service throughout our stay.
The "No Shoes No News" policy of the hotel made for a relaxing experience during our honeymoon. Our over the water villa was upgraded, at no fee, to include a private gym, steam room, jacuzzi and 2 sun deck- upstairs and downstairs. The sea life that we saw was out of this world! There was no need to even snorkle based on the sea life thatw as basically at our front "porch" every morning and night.
The over the water villa set-up...
The bathroom was detached from the bedroom which was a nice touch. The bedroom was very spacious, as well as the bathroom. This is indeed a honeymoon or family resort. However, i would highly recommed it for anyone considering vacationing in the Maldives try this very authentic bare foot resort.
- 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
