Booked this in May 2014 as a belated 10th anniversary holiday for us without the kids after reading the TripAdvisor reviews, but before Gili won its 2015 hotel of the year honour! But immediately on arrival it was obvious why it is a very worthy winner! I won't bother to describe the boat trip transfer from the airport, the wonderful...

The reviews don't do this place justice. It truly is the most amazing place on earth. We have travelled all around the world and stayed in many places and Gili Lankanfushi is by far our favourite. The facilities are almost as amazing as the staff and service. We cannot recommend this place high enough!

Unbelievably beautiful, healthy, well-maintained and eco-friendly! Because the villas are over the water, the bugs were non-existent in the villas. Slept outside as much as we slept inside in the air condition. We stayed 10 days - stay as long as you can. It will take a few days to decompress before the serenity, beauty and calmness start soothing your...

We stayed here for our honey moon. What a magical place, it is truly heaven on earth. One night we visited a small uninhabited island for dinner. It was covered in hermit crabs and the whitest sand. The cost is prohibitive but I would recommend it for a very special occasion.

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
