Went in February 2022. The place, the staff, the food were beyond expectations. We hope Six Senses, the new management company, will maintain the same bohemian vibe and above all retain the entire staff as they go above and beyond for their guests. Highest mention goes to chef Nasru who makes superb meals! Hope to return one day…

It was our first trip to the Maldives and since we are very active it was important for us that the island was not to small and that they had a fitness center as well as other activities. We stayed for 7 nights in a Beach pool villa with an outdoor shower. Kanuhura had the best service I have ever had, and I have traveled the world. Its the small details that really make a difference. That unique touch for geniun service. The staff was amazing! Every singel one, highly educated, well spoken, genuin. The bartenders, service personell, cleaning, Villa hosts(both), their personal trainer, management..... Every singel one made our stay a memory for life. The Island was beautiful and well taken care of, food amazing and If we can save enough we are going back. I rarely go back to the same place, but I honestly loved Kanuhura Resort and the staff is the main reason I want to go back. Personal but not private. If you have the oppertunity, you will not regrett Kanuhura Resort, which will be Six Sences soon. Hopefully they will keep their amazing staff.

From the moment we arrived everyone on the island was so kind and helpful and clearly wanted to make this a holiday of a life time for us. Nothing was to much trouble. Our accommodation was outstanding, and the food was truly exceptional, we all agreed that the breakfast was the best breakfast ever. There were lots of activities if you wished to participate, but the turtle safari and the nurse shark snorkelling is an absolute must. We can’t thank everyone on Kanuhura enough for being so exceptionally professional, kind and nice. What a holiday! We are planning our return. Paul Lisa Alice and Elsa Mackey

Wow this is by far the best place I have ever stayed at. The list of reasons are endless. The island itself along with the 2 other private islands are gorgeous. The beach is one of the largest in the Maldives, and the island is large enough where you don't have to be on top of each other. They are closing in May to redo the entire resort and it will be even more gorgeous when done. The staff were amazing. Viaam, Houmad, Farris and lyaad took care of us at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our villa host Daryna was great too, she took care of booking everything. We did the snark snorkel, turtle snorkel with the water sports staff and it was amazing. The hospitality was out of this world. My daughter woke up with an upset stomach one morning, and the staff made her chicken noodle soup and delivered it to our villa and it made her feel better! I also developed a rash on my arm (not sure what I got into) and the spa staff made an ointment from Aloe and gave me it for our plane ride home. It cleared it right up! The spa staff was from Bhutan and the best, we ended up getting 3 messages while we were there. We were greeted from our Seaplane arrival by the staff with a dump beat and everything. From that moment on, until we left it was pure relaxation. Tropical paradise!

Wow. Wow. What an experience, from arrival to departure; truly stellar. Everything at Kanuhura Hotel exceeded expectations- customer service, food, villa, amenities, cleanliness, spa, spectacular beach, and the staff. Our Villa Host, Dahyvna, was informative, so kind, most helpful, and followed thru on everything exactly as she said she would. What a perk to have a personalized villa host to help coordinate dinners, activities, and answer any questions throughout the stay. In addition all of the exemplary options Kanuhura offers, the resort hosts a weekly event for the guests with champagne,cocktails, small bites, and traditional Maldivian live music. The event is so well coordinated, generous, and provides a great opportunity to mingle with other guests and staff members! I cannot say enough about Kanuhura, it truly is a 5 star experience. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Kanuhura when it becomes part of Six Senses; looking forward to be back soon! A big thank you to our Villa Host, Marketing Manager, and the resort General Manager, who all made us feel very special, welcomed, and provided us with a superb experience!

What can I say about this place that the other 735 + reviewers haven't mentioned. It has abundance of pristine natural beauty. The one thing that sets this place apart from any other hotels on earth is their staff. Everyone from the front office to the chefs, waiters, housekeeping, gardeners, even the guys clearing the weeds off the beach treat you with the same heart warming friendliness, smile and service that is difficult to coach, train and inculcate. Everyone of the employee was a star and deserves appreciation for doing this day in and out. I have named a few who we interacted with frequently Clovia the sommelier, Ameen our villa host,Jimmy the smiling yoga teacher who taught us very valuable exercises, Anupam at the SPA for his valuable tips on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a taster massage session, Edi the chef who prepared us a vegetarian fried rice when he knew the one on the buffet had meat, Vijay the chef at Veli who went above and beyond to prepare a 12 variety vegetarian thali for the 3 of us which was out of the world, Raja at the breakfast juice bar who made us some lovely shakes every morning that made up our day, Reneesh at Iru bar, Sujau at Amano who made sure we were well cared for whenever we stepped into Amano and Ibrahim our villa housekeeper who cleaned the place twice a day and even folded the clothes that we left astray in the room. Thanks Kanuhura for the dream holiday. Keep up the good work.

From the arrival with the seaplane we had a wonderful welcome and a high level of service was maintained during all our stay. Silence, nature, transparent sea, white sand, everything is like in a paradise. Also the other 2 private islands are very beatufil for the white sand beaches, transparent sea and quite. Also the house was really nice immersed in the nature and very comfortable. Good Food in the restaurnats, above alla AMANO. Wonderfull snorkeling around the islland, many colored fishes and tartles. A real dream for 8 days !!

From the moment we arrived on the island we felt looked after and welcomed with open arms by the charming, friendly and warm manager Bryce Seater and his staff. No checking in, your details are already taken at the lounge in the seaport in Male, just a lovely buggy drive to your room where your bags are already waiting. Bliss after such a long journey. Our beach bungalow with a heavenly outside bathroom, own sun loungers, with shade was very comfortable and private and opened onto a perfect beach. The island is stunning with gentle sloping white sandy beaches and clean azure sea and we walked and cycled around it very easily and snorkelled straight off the beach. The level of service and friendliness by the staff was heart warming and genuine. They wanted you to have the best time. This to me made this holiday even more special. So many of the staff had been working on the island for many years and knew returning guests and were so welcoming. Naif, our room butler was very efficient and thoughtful. He went out of his way to find us to swim with manta rays that had just been spotted close by. Jackson, the outstanding cook at the Reef restaurant who daily cooked us the best seared tuna ever. The reception staff who calmly helped me with checking confusing Covid flight rules on our return journey, the barman at the beach bar, putting coconuts in the fridge for us in case we wanted some at the end of the day, without us asking and outstanding staff at the restaurants, Sujau, Reneshe, Viaam, amongst so many others. Always smiling, friendly, chatty and kind. The boat house trips were fantastic and Kiah the in house conservationist was absolutely brilliant, fully engaged with her work and very knowledgable. The island has new ownership by six senses and is undergoing renovation and will close very soon for 6 months. I dearly hope this doesn’t change it’s laid back, barefoot appeal and charm and that the same staff return, because it is a unique place and we would go back in a heartbeat.

We warmly recommend Kanuhura for an amazing time in the Maldives. The island(s), the hotel, the nature have everything that one can wish for, but the biggest plus are the people. All of their staff is great, but Daryna excedeed our expectations and made out stay perfect. The kids club is very well organised, we needed to ask our kids to spend some time with us istead of the kids club and the marine biologyst, Kiah, who became their idol. We look forward to going back!
