2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

It's not easy to point out negative aspects of this hotel. Every detail matters, the attention we got from the staff, the kindness and availability are not from this world. The resort itself is amazing, ecofriendly, super well equipped, with lots of activities and things to do. Finally, the food is incredible, from breakfast to dinner, from asian to mediterranean food, nothing disappoints. Fiyaz (Mr. Friday), Abdulla (F&B) and Ibrahim (HK) were impeccable, kind, attentious and helpful to us.

Hotel's Favorite
Gili Lankanfushi is a piece of heaven on earth. I seriously recommend you visit the island once in your lifetime because its very precious. Let's start from the arrival, everything was super smooth and easy. The management team was there to great us and welcome us into the island. Our Mr.Friday, Mr Makif is the nicest most genuine person I've met, he made everything easy for us and ensured that our stay was not just smooth but memorable as well. I have no words to express my gratitude for your assistance throughout our stay and I truly can't wait to meet again. Please ask for him to be your Mr. Friday. Sodig Ibrahim was responsible of our villa and our needs and he went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we wanted and more.I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help and your beautiful smiles. The resort is so detailed when it comes to sustainability and detailed in everything you could possible need. I have been to a lot of resorts and I can say that none had that level of detail and care, excellence hospitality. The souvenir shop is a little gem and my favourite was the surf shack, shout-out to Grant for making me obsessed with surfing. I want to thank the team that took care of us Shiyan, Athufa, Rohan, Thasleem for taking such amazing care of us and spoiling us and making us feel like we are Queens and Kings. Gili Lankanfushi thank you, I miss you and I will be back soon!!
