As the proprietors of the Split Apple Retreat in New Zealand, my wife, Pen, and I probably look at a resort from a different perspective. What makes a great resort, in our view, is how they handle customer satisfaction in less than ideal conditions. We stayed at Gili for a week in July, and it rained for 6/7 days, with... More

Where do I begin? I have been to the ends of the earth and stayed at a multitude of high end hotels but have never had an experience as perfect as this. Every single detail was meticulously thought of and then some. Our Mr. Friday, Shifzan, was amazing, friendly, helpful and attentive. Sameen, who we saw at breakfast and dinner... More

If you only have one vacation in your entire life, you need to go to this place! What an incredible experience. The worst part is getting there, but once you are there, the staff at Gili Lankanfushi do their best to make sure the journey was worth it. In my opinion, this place is luxury, without being snobby and pretentious.... More

Not much that I could value added here given that it's already won the Tripadvisor top travellers choice to which I completely give my consent. The scenery, facilities, services, activities and food were top notch. Perhaps some useful comments that I can make is that the resort is suitable for all ages including the elderly. I was with a family... More

Never tried to explore every single things around here. What a magnificent breathtaking views! Snorkeling in the amazing corals of sea-level, enjoying magnificent milky way at night under the blue sky, beach sport activities, barbeque, enjoying sumptous dinner, and etc. How our kiddos very exciting, and won't go back to home...😃

As we arrived, we were greeted at the airport by the General Manager, Steven, who we had a coffee with while waiting for our boat. When you arrive in Gili Lankanfushi, you arrive in a family, with a very warm feeling. Even though the weather was not too good, there are plenty of activities you can do, no time to... More

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
