There are not enough superlatives to describe this resort. I have done an enormous amount of travelling, and this place is unsurpassed in my experience. All the little touches make this an unforgettable experience.
The location is spectacular - just too beautiful for words.
Service is outstanding, the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful, and there is nothing that is too much trouble for them. The food is fabulous, with a wonderful selection. The staff will happily cater for ANY requests. We chose to dine in a number of times and were incredibly impressed with the service and quality of our meals. They are delivered to your villa in a buggy with a hotbox, so still piping hot. Everything is beautifully laid out on the table for you, and then the staff return at a pre-arranged time to clear it all up.
The villas are sublime - wonderfully spacious, and with all the amenities one could possibly wish for.
I could go on and on, but will simply suggest that you go and see for yourself!!!
Heartfelt thanks to Iain, with a special mention for Craig, and our wonderful waiter, Shawaff.
- 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
