Gili Lankanfushi Maldives

Often named as one of the top luxury resorts in the Maldives, Gili Lankanfushi lies a convenient 20-minute speedboat ride from Malé Airport. There are just 45 villas, giving the island an intimate feel, and the resort prides itself on an eco-friendly laid-back approach to luxury. Every one of the villas sits on stilts over the water, from the Villa Suites up to the showstopping Private Reserve. The stand-alone Crusoe Residences are one of the most popular room choices, standing just offshore and only accessible by private boat.

The main restaurant, Kashiveli, serves traditional Maldivian favourites as well as a varied range of international cuisines, while By The Sea provides a Japanese fine-dining experience. There is also an over-water bar and a fun ice cream bar by the pool. A number of private destination dining experiences can be arranged. There are fantastic opportunities for diving and snorkeling nearby, and other facilities include an extensive spa centre, gym, swimming pool, various sports and watersports facilities, and even a jungle cinema.  

One of the Maldives’s most eco-conscious properties, Gili Lankanfushi runs an extensive recycling and composting program, plastic is banned on the island, and they are active in promoting marine conservation in the surrounding area.
