As a family of 3, we all share a room which is absolutely fine, look forward to seeing what the refurb does for the island. The staff are wonderful and always remember... More

I stayed beach villa and on the water villa. I really recommend beach villa. Because it is kept private space by plants and there is almost private beach in front of villa. Regarding on the water villa, it beautiful and good room, but near next room.

Given the price of the stay it is the worst hotel I have been in the last couple of years. The promo video lies: only one restaurant worked for the majority of time (and half of menu was not available), the French fries always looked poorer than in McDonalds (that happens when you cook on the same oil for months),...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 26 natural atolls which make up the Maldives, contain some 1200 coral islands, infinite sandbanks and reefs spread over90,000 square kilometres of Indian Ocean. Only 200 of these islands are inhabited, while an additional 90 have been transformed into resorts. Kanuhura is located on the eastern rim of Lhaviyani Atoll, on its own private island. Famed for its laid-back luxury and authentic, natural Maldivian charm, the award-winning resort offers the highest standards of accommodation, service and culinary experience. Every effort has been made to retain the natural beauty of the island and wherever possible, employ the use of only natural materials. The island measures approximately 1000 meters in length and 200 meters in width, with a north-south orientation. It offers the best in watersports and diving. Travel is by seaplane and is around 40 minutes from the international airport at the Maldives capital, Male. The seaplanes, privately run by Maldivian Air Taxi Services, operate a schedule to accommodate international arrivals and departures. A private waiting lounge is available for guests of Kanuhura. ... more   less
