WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

A Unique Approach to Sustainability: The Gili Lankanfushi approach to luxury hospitality is innovative in its attention to staying true to the cultural and ecological surroundings of the Maldives' archipelago. From using sustainably-sourced building materials to sourcing locally-bottled still and sparkling water for guests, the Gili Lankanfushi is truly an “Eco Resort.”

Facilities with Local Flavor: The resort offers many unique facilities for Gili Lankanfushi guests to explore. The Organic Garden, Surf Shack, Jungle Cinema, and Popsicle and Ice Cream Bar are just a few outside-the-box examples.

Overwater Luxury: All Gili Lankanfushi accommodations are set above the ocean waters on jetties away from the main island, and the seven private Crusoe Residences that stand alone on stilts can only be reached by private boat

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Experience barefoot luxury at Gili Lankanfushi, a resort nestled in a glistening lagoon above a coral island. Each of the 45 villas at Gili Lankanfushi are built overlooking the waters of the lagoon, and connected together by wooden jetties. All villas come standard with king-sized beds, sun decks and patios, wide-screen televisions, and bathrooms with separate shower areas. Dining options include an overwater dining area, where guests can savor fresh seafood and local produce over the lagoon’s waters; By-The-Sea, a fusion eatery which combines Peruvian and Japanese cuisines with a beautiful view of the surrounding ocean; as well as in-villa and beachside dining. Guests may also indulge themselves at the full-service Meera Spa, which offers a number of facials, massages, and organic treatments derived from ocean ingredients. In addition, Gili Lankanfushi is also home to a fully-equipped PADI center, where guests can dive on the corals and abundant marine life in the area. Gili Lankanfushi is a 20-minute speedboat ride from the international airport at Male.
