Excellent stay , our second stay in Kanuhura, great staff and management, remember your name , especially in dining room and a great butler service, personal care. Food very good, less choices in covid times , however very good quality. Spa is good and more expensiv than on the other islands. For myself , there are 3 groups of 5 stars resorts in Maldives: casual, luxury and super luxury. Kanuhura belongs to luxury group. The island needs more technical and maintenance attention, villas are clean and decent size. Kanuhura Lounge at TMA terminal available with possibility of shower and little refreshments before your seaplane departure. Kanuhura celebrated 20th anniversary during our stay and hosted lovely party with great food...

The experience was absolutely amazing! The best part of Kanuhura is its staff! Arshad, Fariz, Abdul, Magga, Vel... all of them made our stay the perfect honeymoon in these covid times. We were especially impressed by the quality of the food in all of the restaurants. Snorkelling was also one of the best parts, we saw sharks, stingrays, turtles, dolphins, all types of fishes... couldn't have asked for more!

We have been home almost a week and we keep talking about how much fun we had in the Maldives! Kanuhura is special because it's really wild and beautiful and super kid-friendly. We loved that everyone rode bikes on the island, my kids loved the game room, and the food was really good- especially Asian. The vibe is very laid back with beautiful, beachy rooms, and I think they do a good job with having fun little gifts in the room. I would say a downside was the house reef can only be reached by a short boat ride which is offered every other day. As snorkelers, we like a closer reef that we can swim to from shore. We also booked an excursion to snorkel and they took us to another resort reef- which was amazing- and we saw hundreds of dolphins. We had great housekeeping and our room was super clean- plus great coordination for our PCR tests and departure. After staying at another resort in South Atoll, this north Atoll location was much less humid and easy to enjoy. We had a couple of times with a slow response to requests, but after speaking with our host about it, he really delivered the last 2 days. I can see why people return- we had some really nice service- especially from Khan, Ameen, Aakeem, Inoka, sorry if I am spelling names wrong. It's hard to see these nametags! Thank you!

We are the luckiest people in the world to had a wedding on this beautiful island, which was amazingly arranged for us. Thank you Handiana! Beautiful island Kanuhura and the People who work there are so kind that we felt like we were in the same family. Everyone was friendly, helpful, attentive and loving with us. We stayed 5 nights in a beach villa and 10 nights in a water villa. Both are very spacious and beautifully furnished with view of the ocean. We extended our stay there because we didn't want to come home from this beutiful island. We experienced so many wonderful moments. This place has moved into our hearts forever and we will surely come back. Kanuhura is the best choice if you want to recharge or want to be an amazing wedding on a beautiful island with kind and attentive staff.

Kanuhura is a beautiful location with a lot to offer. We stayed in a water villa which always had a nice breeze and beautiful ocean views. Kids club had enough activities to keep my 11 and 8 year olds busy (tye dying was a big hit). A visit to the house reef is a must. Walking around the island was also a daily activity, complemented by a well-equipped gym. We always ate the Indian and local Maldivian foods choices at Amano and enjoyed them very much. Dessert room was also a favorite. Kids enjoyed the pizza at Bottega and the sushi at Velli. We had a great escape, with plenty of time to relax and enough activities to stay active. Staff was always responsive to our requests and were able to speedily resolve any concerns. A big thank you to Aksar, the guys at the Cowry Club, Midhaah and rest of the staff at Amano for taking such great care of us. Also we very much appreciated learning from Charlie the marine biologist and even adopted a sea turtle.
