Everything is perfect - the environment, services, room and food... !! Once we arrived the resort, our Ms Friday, NANA has already been there! She showed us around the resort, introduced us the things that we should not miss in the resort. Nana is really helpful and nice with quick responses. However, every staff is nice there, not only our...

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Gili Lankanfushi. There is not much to say that hasn't already been said. From the moment the team met us at Male airport, to arriving on this paradise island we were already in love with this fantastic and truly unique island. During our 7 days we ate wonderful local...

My husband and I celebrated my 30th birthday in Gili Lankanfushi. We came from another 5-star Maldivian resort and we dare say that the service in Gili Lankanfushi far exceeds that of the previous resort. If I were to summarise, this place exudes unpretentious beauty with service from the heart. Every corner of Gili Lankanfushi is designed in true Crusoe...

We visited Gili for my 40th birthday trip. To say I've been planning this trip for say a long time is an understatement... so needless to say the trip had some high expectations. For the very first time I used a travel agent to help me pick a location... because with the Maldives there are so many really nice hotels...

This was an unplanned “Honeymoon” trip for my wife, Shirlyn and myself. It was put together by our eldest son, Igy. As we exit the departure hall, we were warmly greeted by 2 friendly staffs. We were swiftly ushered to the boat that was awaiting to take us to the lovely island. As we arrived closed to mid night, we...

My husband and I have visited over 30 countries and have stayed at many 5 star properties, none of them captured the unique combination of natural beauty and gentle, caring, professional staff in a completely relaxing atmosphere. We stayed for 9 nights and spent much of our trip talking about when we were coming back. Our villa was so spacious...

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
