I believe that as a well traveled person ,I have an idea of what the top resorts in the world should be like and I have NEVER been to a more beautiful place then Soneva Gili by Six Senses in the Maldives.
I speak from the heart when I tell you the hospitality is so good I felt I was home all the time. Starting right at the beginning with the welcome, not from any “Jo Soap” but from the General Manager and the Resort Manager, Marteyne & Kurt, I felt like I was Royal Family!!! Can you imagine...every guests being welcomed by senior managers-now that’s what I call service.
Every minute of our stay was amazing...from the food, to excursions, managers drinks, the over water spa...and I have to say the best sushi I have tasted in a long time. Think Zuma or Nobu with a Peruvian influence...Miki the Chef is a character never to be forgotten.
The food was so incredible that by the end of the week I had not eaten 3 meals a day but the equivalent of 6 meals a day. The options are endless and the quality top notch.
The “hosts” (those who work for the resort) were incredible. In particular there was a Japanese host ,Yoshimi ,who was anywhere and everywhere and always had a smile on her face, wanting and willing to help. One day we actually counted how many times were saw her, it seemed one minute she was on one side of the island and the next she suddenly appeared on the other side. Brilliant!
Give yourself the treat of a lifetime and visit Soneva Gili ....I can say without a shadow of doubt that this has been my best holiday experience ever.
- 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.
