I like the "natural " principle of this island. The room is quite big.There is enough distance between the villas so it is private. The service is wonderful. Not so many people. We have a wonderful holidays. I will come back again next time.

Every part of the island is a little peace of paradise. It is quiet and beautiful. We stayed in Crusoe Residence 4 and it was and amazing experience. Villa was gorgeous and views from the deck were stunning. We could see the sunset from there. Please don't expect a very luxurious place full of environmentally-aggressive amenities.

I stayed here for a week, after splitting from my husband, I needed to escape. The perfect hideaway. The staff were there, but only if you needed them to be, it really did feel like your very own private island.

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
