I have just returned from my fourth visit to Gili Lankanfushi, and I honestly don't think I will ever grow tired of going there. The staff greet us like family, not only remembering our names but the little things like my favourite drink. There is no better hotel anywhere in the world. The food, service, surroundings and laid-back atmosphere...5 star... More

My wife and I spent 8 nights at Gili for the second half of our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing. There isn't a whole lot to add to all of these other reviews so I'll mention 2 things that I liked a lot. All of the villas are overwater and have 2 (or more) sets of steps down into the... More

The street nights they set up for dinner is incredible, the food was so good and the mixologist dhillion went out of his way to make cocktails to customise to my liking. Mr Friday service was amazing, had... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon and the whole place is exceptional. The rooms are huge for water bungalows and well equipped with a great entertainment system for listening to music while relaxing.

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. 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. ... more   less
