About Gili Lankanfushi

Gili Lankanfushi is a private resort in the Maldives. Rustic luxury is in full effect at Lankanfushi. The over-the-water villas are made of wood and topped with grass-style roofs. They sit in shallow, impossibly clear water and are connected by a series of wide wooden walkways. In all, there are 45 accommodation options here. Even the entry-level Villa Suites are extremely luxurious. These over-the-water villas stretch for 210 square meters. The Indian Ocean breezes and views of the idyllic surroundings play an important part in the Lankanfushi experience. The villas' design is open, except for the bedroom, which is completely enclosed and cooled by air conditioning. The rest of the rooms in these spacious suites are cooled by nature’s air conditioner.

Gili Lankanfushi is a private resort in the Maldives. Rustic luxury is in full effect at Lankanfushi. The over-the-water villas are made of wood and topped with grass-style roofs. They sit in shallow, impossibly clear water and are connected by a series of wide wooden walkways. In all, there are 45 accommodation options here. Even the entry-level Villa Suites are extremely luxurious. These over-the-water villas stretch for 210 square meters. The Indian Ocean breezes and views of the idyllic surroundings play an important part in the Lankanfushi experience. The villas' design is open, except for the bedroom, which is completely enclosed and cooled by air conditioning. The rest of the rooms in these spacious suites are cooled by nature’s air conditioner. The open-air living room, with daybeds and sofas, is ideal for relaxing, while the view of the water is even better (if that’s possible) from the rooftop sun-deck AND a separate over-water deck. The larger (250 square meter) luxury Residence Villas have the same features as the Villas Suite, only with a more space. Residences also have air conditioned living rooms, wine cellars and glass-sided showers. In addition to the eight standard Residence villas, there are seven Crusoe Residence Villas, which have all the same features, but are located in more secluded sections of the resort. Each of the guests at a Crusoe Villa has access to a boat that they can use to transport themselves to the main island. And, we have to mention the signature piece of furniture in every Crusoe Residence: the over-the-water hammock. Guests can find the ultimate level of luxury at the Private Reserve, a massive over-the-water complex that stretches for 1,400 square meters. This accommodation features two master suites with floor-to-ceiling windows. Extensive indoor and outdoor lounge areas surround the property. These include two rooftop decks, several sea level terraces, and fully furnished living rooms.  There is even a private cinema, a wine cellar and 24-hour butler service. Reserve guests have access to private boats, and they arrive and depart from the stay in a luxury yacht. Gili Lankanfushi is home to the Meera Spa. This spa often hosts visiting specialists, who train the staff and provide holistic treatments to guests. Unique spa offerings include a bamboo massage, music and sound therapy, a state-of-the-art sauna and steam room, and herbal health and beauty treatments. In addition to the main restaurant, which serves amazing seafood dishes and has a wine cellar and “chocolate cave,” Gili features the By the Sea Restaurant, which dishes up Japanese fare. Guests can relax and enjoy a nightcap at the bar and lounge. They can also experience "destination dining" at various spots around the property (on the beach with a table made of sand, on a deserted islet, or overlooking the lush jungle). When they are not enjoying the endless list of amenities and being pampered by the staff, guests can try a range of activities, from windsurfing and stand-up paddling to snorkeling and diving to beach-side yoga or jungle safaris.
