One of the most beautiful places i have visited - the beaches were so white, the sea so clear and blue! The staff, food, facilities were all 5 star - couldn't fault anything! I would highly recommend using the spa - the full body massage is great especially after a long flight. We stayed in a beach villa - it...

This was our 12th visit to Kanuhura and we were looking forward to returning after refurbishment. We were pleased that the natural beauty of the island has been retained which is what sets Kanuhura apart from other Maldives islands. We loved the new layout of the rooms (we stayed in a water villa) with the new dressing area, new room...

After visiting Kanuhura many times and often recently commenting on the tired appearance of the rooms, I was really looking forward to returning after the 15 month closure for refurbishment. The result is well worth the effort with the natural beauty of the island undiminished but with a host of improvements to the rooms and facilities. Definitely top of our...

The Maldives is the BEST beach location in the world (IMHO) and Kanuhura does not disappoint. The service is excellent, the refurbished rooms delightful and the beach wondrous. However when it came to water it was the good, bad and ugly. The good was the sea/diving, the bad was the $10 bottles of water (outrageous) and ugly was the torrential...

This was my third stay at the Maldives, the first was 25 years ago. My first advice would be to go while you can - it is not getting better. The weather has become unstable, reefs less colorful and the islands more crowded as water villas has expanded capacity of the small islands. Don't get me wrong, it's still great...
