About Gili Lankanfushi

Situated on its own private island in the Maldives, Gili Lankanfushi offers guests the rare chance to actually realise their tropical holiday fantasies in an exquisitely designed resort.

There are 45 amazing and very spacious suites at Gili Lankanfushi, all of them over the water. They feature large open air living rooms with day beds, rooftop terraces and other outdoor spaces. There’s even audio visual equipment and Wi-Fi available.

Guests can be as active or as relaxed as they want to be.  Aside from swimming in the hotels own infinity pool, there’s diving and windsurfing in the Indian Ocean, or a tranquil experience waiting in the extensive spa.

The main restaurant serves delectable cuisine, often right out on the beach, while there is also a top Japanese restaurant and lively over-the-water bar for when guests are looking to mix it up a bit.

The much talked about location of Paradise can be found precisely 0.0 miles from your suite.

Positive Reviews

Amazing attention to detail

Again and again guests mention the attention to detail paid by the staff at Gili Lankanfushi. For them, it seems as if nothing at all is out of order or not totally executed to perfection. About the only thing not always perfect, is the occasional windy or cloudy day.

The night snorkelling

Several guests mention that this was by far their best experience on the island. The resort offers night snorkelling using special blue lights, bringing out unique colours and biofluorescence not ordinarily witnesses. It was an experience like none that any of the guests had ever had before.

“Mr Friday”

Named after Robinson Crusoe's friend, of course, “Mr Friday” is the resorts butler service, where each party is allocated a private butler who oversees their stay, and makes sure their needs are taken care of. To say that guest appreciated this service is an understatement.

Negative Reviews

Not so great in poor weather

Although guests didn't make a big deal over this, some did point out that if the weather was particularly windy, which it sometimes can be on the island, there was not really much to do for. At least for those who were looking for an active sporty holiday.

Food and drinks very expensive

This was perhaps predictable, but a couple of guests mention the high prices of food and drink on the island. This is pretty standard on resort islands, where it is incredibly expensive to bring in the food and staff to create the exquisite dishes served in their restaurants.

“Dead” coral

This is always a controversial point at resorts, but there were one or two guests who were unimpressed with the coral available to view, saying it was “dead”. Scientists generally say that white coral isn't dead, but is bleached due to warmer water than usual.
