The view from our rear deck towards the resort's other islands. You can swim, kayak or take the shuttle boat there.
Not a bad view to wake up to. You can hear the ocean while you're in bed.
Gorgeous Water villa

Dear 619hirals,During this month, humidity skyrockets and the archipelago of the Maldives begins to be dominated by the southwestern monsoon that brings moisture and rain. During this month, average daytime temperature remains at a welcoming 28 degrees Celsius.With the global weather change its rather possible that changes might occur to the pattern. Hope to see you in Kanuhura in the future. Best Regards
