We found Gangehi island on Agoda while looking for a remote island resort far from Male city, and it is what we exactly expected. It is 1.5-2 hour speedboat ride from the city, and located on a tiny island at the westernmost part of Maldives archipelago. Being on a small island with 40+ rooms in total, everything is beautifully maintained, and guests are well served. It does not need to take 20 min to walk around the island, the garden in the middle is so tropical, and the rooms are on each side of the island. The small size of island also favors less crowd and provides maximum privacy. Beach side is small but nice - having some place to do snorkeling, there is a sand bridge (which is my favorite) extending like 500m into the ocean in low tide, the marine fishes can be seen just close to the beach along sand bridge, but the water villa side has strong wind during our stay in November which is not so nice for swimming. The room we stayed (overwater deluxe villa) is very spacious, decorated with beautiful antiques (looks really old, so feeling like in old palace), and the bathroom and terrace are also nicely arranged. Just one note about the attitude of some staff who did not treat well to Asian looking us. At the first time, I thought it was just forgetfulness, but it was not only once and observed that they treated better to European alike people. For example, we did not get a greeting while an European behind us was greeted and asked what drink he needs in the bar. Also in the restaurant, we were not prioritized, but the other people received. (found a review too on google map that an Indian was not treated well). Maybe vast majority of the guests are from Europe, so the staff have less exposure to Asians. Anyhow, it is better to be trained well to treat all equally. In a nutshell, I would say Gangehi island resort is a scarce tiny beautiful haven.

The place is amazing! The island is neat, green, intimate, in my opinion, a great place for people who want to avoid the crowds. A small intimate hotel surrounded by a reef. The rooms were spacious, very clean. The island overall is absolutely gorgeous, its exactlly like a small paradise. The beach is very clean and tidy, with that perfect blue water. The breakfast and dinner were buffet, and you get to choose from so many dishes. There is a big variety of food from which you can choose and the food is really good. Staff are super friendly. This little island is absolutely enough and gives you a lot of intimacy. This is the hotel's really great advantage. I definitely recommend this place, very clean, very pleasant, perfect for relaxation.

We had a great time at Gangehi. This was our 10th visit to the Maldives, and our first stay at Gangehi. The island is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. As we are very keen snorklers, it's always exciting to discover new places and new house reefs. There is a lot of dead corals, just as everywhere in the Maldives, but there are still a lot of marine life. Several fully grown black tip reefsharks, turtles, morays, eagle ray, sting ray, boxfish, puffefish, jackfish, and lots of smaller fishes. We waited until after low tide, and walked out on the sandbank and just drifted very slowly towards the island. So easy, and so beautiful. Compared to other resorts, the food was very good. Fish and meat was cooked / fried just right, and not overcooked like we have experienced so many other places. The italian style and flavours was delicious, and the homemade ice cream to die for. Just one thing we didn't like was all the cakes for breakfast. Typical for southern Europe, but as a scandinavian it's difficult to understand why there is 10 different cakes for breakfast. Luckily there was brown bread, a small plate with cheese and ham, cerials, youghurt, and the option for cooked to order omelette or scrambled egg. We stayed in a water villa for the first time. It was great for this occation, but we will prefer to stay in a beach villa next time to get the shadow from the trees or umbrellas.

I visited Gangehi Island Resort with my family last week. It was an amazing experience and we highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Maldives. We would like to express special thanks to the waiter - Rasel and roomboy - Salim - their service was perfect and they always had very friendly and cheerful attitude towards us. Moreover the hotel has a breathtaking views and a beautiful localization. During our stay there we saw plenty of sharks, stingrays, starfish, turtles etc… If it comes about food it was very delicious and marvelous. In the conclusion we highly recommend the Gangehi Island Resort! 😊
