Everything was perfect! I could never ask for more. Service, food, beach, villa, Mr. Friday ( Atheef ) all were excellent! All the staff were kind, lovely, helpful and polite. I enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was magic. I cant wait to go back again.

We spent our honeymoon here and had Maldivian experience of a lifetime. We stayed in a Crusoe Villa (no. 2) with an unobstructed view of the ocean/ horizon. The villa was spacious, clean, stylish and well maintained. The lagoon is so beautiful and there are almost no currents so we could jump off our balcony and swim at all times....

We just spent a week celebrating our honeymoon at Gili. The resort is beyond amazing, 5 stars does not do it justice. This island will always be a special place for us. To start off, the hosts/staff are incredibly friendly, sociable, hospitable, and helpful. The service was the best we have ever experienced. You feel like you are a VIP...

We loved the Maldives and Gili made it the perfect trip. I has researched every 4 and 5 star resort in the Maldives and I know we made the right choice as we rebooked before we left (first time).

Beautiful place, could watch changing colors of the sea and clouds forever! Very friendly and helpful staff. Quality food, delicious salads and herbs coming from the island vegetable garden. Wonderful Japanese restaurant, where you can get cooking lessons. A variety of sea activities at your disposal, snorkeling, etc. Highly recommended.

My husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon recently.

A super hotel with wonderful staff and fantastic rooms. If you want barefoot luxury this is a definite go to. We had a super relaxing holiday and especially loved the wonderful Japanese restaurant as well as being able to do plenty of water sports and play tennis every evening.

From the second you set foot on the jetty to the moment you have to leave for your „other“ life back home, everyone from the bottom of their heart strives to make your stay unforgettable.

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
