A beautiful Island, that is so refreshingly unpretentious. This is a resort for the seasoned traveller, a place to get away from the standard, run-of-the-mill resort service, to feel that you are part of a welcoming village where you definitely feel immediately at home, with staff but also with the other guests. As a couple, we were able to get...

This is my first entry into Trip Advisor, but I feel compelled to given my experience here this past week. Often at high end resorts one feels a sense of vanity from other guests and sometimes, staff. I can honestly say that the feeling at Kanuhura from the GM down to the housekeeping is more personal and less vein than...

Was a great stay overall. From the moment I left the airport the great hospitality started, as I was escorted to the resorts private lounge while I waited for my sea plane transfer to the private island. I was lucky enough to stay in 2 villas, 1 on the sunrise side of the island and 1 on the sunset side....

Having stayed in some 7 different resorts across the Maldives, I can honestly say that Kunahura wins hands down on most fronts. The beach completely circles the island which is so rare. Activities are plentiful and staff all over you, as you should expect, to help create memories. The silent but biggest win for me was the food diversity and...

The Villas, food and staff were as fantastic as ever. Food and restaurant choices have a healthier slant and were delicious. Water was fantastic but El Nino has sadly affected the house reef, so decent snorkelling required a boat trip.

We stayed 6 nights at Kanuhura. The was clean and the staff very friendly. The hotel offered us a late check out, allowing us to stay in the villa the last day until the afternoon, so it was great.

We first visited Kanuhura when it first opened in 2000 and various times since. It was great to return after it has been refurbished.
