I had a great time with my brother at the resort. I would say we love the resort at first sight - nice place, great view. Villa design is natural, minimal but luxury in its senses, good taste and great concept of sustainability. I gave 10 out of 10 on the hardware. Service from Management & Staff were unforgetable. I...

Gili Lankanfushi is a special blend of luxury accommodation with rustic charm. My Wife & I stayed with our 12 yr old son in a residence and it was without a doubt the best accommodation we have ever experienced. We loved seeing the marine life swimming under our room which included white tip reef sharks, spotted eagle rays, puffer fish...

I wanted to write a review while I was still at the resort. That's how much I love it. I don't think I can really do justice to the resort with my review, so I recommend checking out their very accurate website. Whatever is promised, is delivered. Sadly, I was only there for 4 days, so I did run out...

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
