It's hard to believe that a place like Gili actually exists in the world. Any property in the Maldives will offer beautiful reefs, villas and scenery but what really separates Gili and the other hotel properties is their top notch service. Our experience was perfect from beginning to end, the staff really goes the extra mile to make sure that...

Amazing experience indeed! We travelled the first time ever to Gili Lankanfushi and loved it! The boat crew who picked us up was excellent...they spray your bare feet once they take away your shoes until you return to the international airport, with our Ms. Friday we felt in VERY safe hands (she's a weightlifter and kick boxer) and she did...

Our family has been lucky enough to visit Gill Lankanfushi three times and it just keeps getting better and better. From the moment we arrive and take our shoes off when we get on the boat to take us there (and never put them on again until we leave) the stress and pressures of modern living start to peel away....

landing at the airport in Male, you're met right away by people to help you get onto the boat to lead you to an amazing island in the middle of paradise - but not before you're told to take off your shoes. this island believes in "no shoes, no news", and after staying there you'll wish every other place you...

After a few years of trying diferent top resorts (Reethi Raa, Coco Island, landa Giravaaru, Huvafen Fushi), Gili Lankanfushi (formerly Soneva Fushi) is definitely our favorite. Best natural style (no silly acres of marble), lovely long, clean beach, best attentive service, good swimming (coral free), incredibly blue water, good food, japanese restaurant as a diversion.

My daughter and I have just had an amazing 6 days on Gili. It really is paradise.

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
