Once back, you remember all the little things you took for granted while there, the glass bottom room, the high tide that brigs the small black tip sharks, the low tide that bring the rays, the power juice of the day, the small boat in the pool, the sunrise, the quiet in the night, the jungle walk, and on and on. The experience continues in our minds, and replays beautifully. We stayed at villa 15, and out of hundreds of cities we've been to, Gili was a highlight. Thank you to the entire Gili family and our very special Mr. Friday - Rasheed. Thank you also also for that island hour (one hour ahead of Male) gained at the end and the very smooth and ride back on the private boat!
- 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
