Have you ever dreamt of jetting off to a sanctuary of mesmerizing beauty, far away from the pressures of modern life, at the end of the world? Welcome to Gili Lankanfushi, one of the nature’s most spectacular masterpieces, an escape where love blossoms. You will have no qualms understanding why it was ranked “Best Hotel In the World” on TripAdvisor in 2015 - amongst 8,151 other far-flung resorts!
Set on one of Lankanfushi’s private islands, merely 20 minutes by boat from the airport, the resort offers a magical, peaceful getaway in the midst of one of the Maldives’ largest lagoons. You will instantly be seduced by the resort’s 45 overwater villas, which boast soaring views of the dazzling ocean. With large spaces ranging from 210m2 to 1400m2, the villas are spacious, to say the least. Thatched roofs lend an authentic feel, while the interiors are soft and inviting, designed in natural woods and traditional fabrics. Truly your home away from home.
Most mesmerizing of all are the Crusoe Villas, seven standalone overwater residences that hover in the midst of the Indian Ocean for ultimate privacy and tranquility. On your arrival, you are escorted to your Crusoe Residence - accessible only by boat - where your biggest challenge will be to choose the best spot from which to watch sunset: your private over water hammock, your sundeck, your very own rooftop terrace or your semi open air bathroom?
Gili Lankanfushi embarks you on a magical culinary journey, combining exquisite flavors and unique experiences: a romantic lunch with your toes in the sand; a sensorial, healthy meal within the Organic Garden; a subterranean wine-and-chocolate or wine-and-cheese tasting in our Wine Cellar. Head to the Overwater Bar to best enjoy the sublime spectacle of the fiery sun setting the sky ablaze.
Jungle Cinema: Surrounded by lush jungle and serenaded by the sound of the waves, Gili Lankanfushi offers intimate movie screenings under the open sky. Slouch in your ultra-comfy chair and immerse yourself in an incredible cinematic experience.
2-hours snorkeling with a marine biologist: Join our marine biologist for an otherworldly discovery of the unforgettable kaleidoscope of color that lies beneath the ocean’s surface. Your personal guide invites you to get up close and personal with hundreds of species of tropical fish and multicolored coral gardens as you live out your swimming-with-the-turtle fantasies. Gliding in and out of this water wonderland is certain to make your jaw drop.
Dhoni Sunset Cruise: Toast the Maldives’ sensational sunset with a flute of champagne as you embark on a romantic cruise aboard a dhoni. Indulge in some delectable canapés and watch the Maldivian sun bidding farewell to yet another glorious day.
Night snorkeling: For many, the disappearing sun often marks the end of their snorkeling day. But the ocean opens up a new world beneath the waves when night falls. The reefs come alive, the tiny zooplankton twinkle and the jellies put on their own fireworks show with a vibrant display that can best be described as ethereal. This one-of-a-kind experience will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
The Meera Spa: Feel your stress slip away as the vibrations of our Tibetan Singing Bowl cleanse you. Allow our therapists to work their magic on you with a combination of bamboo sticks and warm aromatic oils - all while catching glimpses of the ocean through our glass floors.
