Gili Lankanfushi Maldives

Discover Gili Lankanfushi

In the North Malé Atoll, the tiny coral island paradise of Gili Lankanfushi is an easy 20-minute boat ride from Malé international airport and yet provides a true retreat from everyday life. The epitome of barefoot luxury, the resort has a real castaway feel with an intimate charm, perfect for couples, particularly honeymooners. Exquisite cuisine uses much from the extensive organic garden and includes casual beachside dining on pristine white sand beaches beside sparkling turquoise waters.

Rustic-style villas, some with private plunge pool, are exclusively overwater. All have been built from sustainable and recycled materials and feature distinct areas for sleeping, lounging and swimming, allowing guests the maximum personal space to relax and unwind. For a true sense of space, choose a Crusoe Residence, only reachable by boat. The overwater spa offers personalised therapies from around the world, while marine activities galore provide a touch of adventure – from guided snorkeling on the house reef or learning to paddle board in the sheltered lagoon, to surfing some of the Maldives finest surf breaks just a short dhoni boat ride away. Gili Lankanfushi represents a true Castaway island experience.
