Not too much to say except gili Lankanfushi was an incredible place, with incredible staff and incredible water sports and food. There are those perhaps like myself and my new wife, who thought we may enjoy the glitz and glam of a modern resort but when our Travel Consultant stated that Gili was the only real resort that she recommends...

The best place we have ever been to, my a looong margin... Me and my wife came to Gili for our honeymoon and while the pictures of the place were magnificient, we never expected the place to match or exceed what we saw and read in the reviews. Gili is the epitome of luxury, peace and beauty..... The beautiful environment...

We were there not long enough, but I guess spending time in such a stunning Island is never enough! You get the feeling since the very first moment: the transfer from the airport took us only 15 min by speed boat which gives the opportunity to enjoy the great view of the surrounding made of several green spots in the...

We’ve been to Gili in june 2016, where it was told to be raining season over there. But actually the weather was great. We stayed 10 Days and we’ve had two or three with some rain – but that made it even more beautiful. Seeing the clouds coming over the island while swimming in beautiful cyan water, that was way...

You know a stay is a truly incredible experience when you never feel like you could leave, and when you eventually do, you leave a part of your heart with it. That's how Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is. From the moment we got whisked from the airport via a speedboat named 'Gili goes Swiftly', we were transported to a slice of...

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
