I stayed in about 20 resorts whilst working in the Maldives and this for me was number one! We stayed for a weekend when it was Soneva Gili and were made welcome from the moment we arrived and took off our shoes to walk on the beautiful soft sand. We stayed in a Water Villa which you would not want to leave. Go thru the main door and down to the sunbeds at the water edge. Bedroom to the left, Hugh bathroom with a walkway to the shower area or down the stairs to a secluded bathing area in seawater or up to the roof for a day bed, Just wonderful. There are bicycles by the front door so you can cycle everywhere.
Chef cooked us a wonderful spanish dinner at our request which we ate under candelight on the beach. It just does not get better than this! Others have described it as Paradise. It is!
- 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
