My husband and I are well travelled and spend a great deal of time researching our vacations and international travels (along with consulting top travel agents). Thailand, Brazil, Panama, Greece, Hawaii, Mexico, .... beaches all over and I'm annoyed we weren't wiser to come to the Maldives before now. The country is beautiful, but this resort is truly what made...

We spent our stay in a water villa which was inclusive of 2 bedrooms, a large bathroom with walking wardrobe, jacuzzi, bathtub, sauna, spa facility. We enjoyed in the pool area and sea very much. Money is...

Having stayed at many hotels in the Maldives, and my 2nd at this hotel although under new ownership. It is simply the best, forget your Cheval Blanc's this is about ultimate service and feeling of being at home. If you want St Tropez flashy then you know where to go. But Bearfoot luxury, was invented on this island, and "the...

We stayed at Gill for several days and nights and it was an experience of a life time. Other than returning to Gili I am unsure if any other vacation will ever be the same. Our 1st impression of Gili was the gentleman who met us at the airport and the impression was great. We then boarded the boat for...

The setting is spectacular and the layout of the resort creates a sense of exclusivity, almost as if you are on your own island. The large villas include a bedroom suite, large open-air living room and dining area, rooftop terrace with daybed and dining table, steps down to a sundeck, and steps into the water, with your own private hammock....

"No News, No Shoes" reads the bag you surrender your footwear to upon delivery to this luxury resort by private launch. The arrival sets the tone for a holiday where you cannot help but relax with the sand between your toes. The fact that nobody wears shoes whilst at the resort is a genuine leveller. The quirky architecture of the...

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
