Reviewed yesterday NEW

Not worth the money we spent, rooms are rustic, no private pool in water villa & food was average. The guest pool is very small & not luxurious.. We also were moved to another room to check out & it was full of insects & was not clean at all.

We have visited the Maldives many times over the years and tried a number of different islands but Gili stands head and shoulders above anything that we have experienced anywhere in the world. The best accommodation we have had. The best food we have eaten. Everything we tried was superbly cooked. An excellent wine list although, as in many resorts,...

If paradise exits, this is it! A surprise trip for Valentines for 6 nights. Every aspect of the trip went so smoothly. From the time we were met at the airport by the Gili staff to our last farewell.

My husband and I have recently returned from a 9 night stay at this resort and have to say that it lived up to all expectations, which having researched it on Tripadvisor before booking was a hard thing to do!

Just a fantastic island. It´s like looking at postcards wherever you look. Food is extremely high quality. Breakfast buffet had a lot of healthy choices together with all standard choices. Dinner Buffets was great! Maybe one of the best buffets I have tried ever! All the staff is friendly and professional. Exercise room was well equipped. I recommend this place!

It's hard to believe that a place like Gili actually exists in the world. Any property in the Maldives will offer beautiful reefs, villas and scenery but what really separates Gili and the other hotel properties is their top notch service. Our experience was perfect from beginning to end, the staff really goes the extra mile to make sure that...

Amazing experience indeed! We travelled the first time ever to Gili Lankanfushi and loved it!

Our family has been lucky enough to visit Gill Lankanfushi three times and it just keeps getting better and better. From the moment we arrive and take our shoes off when we get on the boat to take us there (and never put them on again until we leave) the stress and pressures of modern living start to peel away....

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
