It was my first visit to Maldives and we were a groups of 13 including 5 kids. We had an amazing time at Kanuhura. It was the best family holiday. The resort is set on a beautiful island teaming with lush vegetation and surrounding by stunning beaches , white sand and clear turquoise ocean. The over water villas were superb. The service and hospitality was exceptional. Our villa host Mr. Ahmed and F&B host Mr Suresh both were a genie to us to get all our needs fulfilled time to time. The bars served yummy cocktails. The kids facilities were at best. We felt like home. Will definitely come back. Thank you Kanuhura.

We zeroed on Kanuhura after reviewing quite a few properties in Maldives & we were not disappointed even once!! One of the best group vacations we have had where everything was taken care for us exceptionally! We decided to stay on the water villas & that was such a beautiful experience. The staff was always on call making sure every wish was taken care of. Suresh & Mahesh from the F&B team made sure every individuals request was met with their choice of food. The kids were entertained with the gaming area, the movie nights arranged by the team & mostly the bicycling. We also got a photo shoot done at the property which has given us memories for a lifetime! Definitely a must do at such a stunning location! The water villas were impeccable & the open air bathroom was stunning. All in all it was an amazing trip in the midst of the pandemic. All protocols were followed & the staff extremely attentive, we all would go back in the blink of eye, if we got the chance. Thankyou Team Kanuhura for an unforgettable holiday!

My husband, fourteen-year-old son, and I had a fabulous week...an escape from a long, cold winter. It was our first time in the Maldives and Kanuhura exceeded our greatest expectations. The staff was amazing, professional, friendly, attentive, and they greeted us by name at every meal. Vel was brilliant! We spent half the week in a beach villa and the other half in a water villa just because we couldn't decide what we wanted so, we tried both! Both were pure bliss! Ameen was an absolute star. He handles our mid-week move seamlessly and attended to our every wish. The marine biologist on site, Charlie, was fascinating and we learned all about the importance of coral gardening and protecting the coral reefs. The snorkeling was awesome, the beaches are gorgeous. We played tennis, went paddleboarding, wakeboarding, and spent hours reading in our hammocks over the sea. The outdoor bathrooms were a huge hit. The spa is a must! We had massages in the most peaceful space imaginable. The bikes were such a fun way to move around the island. No shoes needed----anywhere (except the tennis court)! We will absolutely be going back.
