Rustic charm married to elegant sophistication in this delightful resort, located enticingly close to the airport.

Located on the private island of Lankanfushi in Male Atoll, Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is a mere 20-minute speedboat ride from Malé Airport. The original all-over-water villa resort, it combines thatched rustic charm with sophistication. A relatively small island with an intimate feel, the resort maximises the indigenous habitat, using sustainable woods, natural materials and traditional fabrics, whilst still offering all the amenities and creature comforts that make for a truly grand experience.

The "no shoes, no news" barefoot luxury mantra is nothing new but at Gili Lankanfushi, it feels perfect. There’s something oddly amusing about having your shoes ‘confiscated’ and only returned at departure.

Gili Lankanfushi offers just 45 sumptuous over water villas, including The Private Reserve reached only by boat. Not only do they have an overwater sun deck with loungers, there’s also a hidden rooftop deck with daybeds. Experience the harmony of life by the water’s edge.

Gili Lankanfushi has a casual atmosphere, the food is superb and nothing is too much trouble for your own personal ‘Man (or woman!) Friday’.

The pristine white sand and the inviting Indian Ocean are always the main attraction in the Maldives but the resort has a plethora of activities to keep you occupied.

Plus snorkelling, surfing, tennis, cookery classes, excursions, bamboo bikes, yoga and most delightfully, films in the open-air ‘Jungle Cinema’.

With glass-panelled floors, the elegant Meera spa provides traditional Ayurvedic treatments and yoga programmes, to salute the sun come dawn or dusk.

Upscale dining is catered for in Kashiveli, showcasing locally-sourced bounty from land and sea and vibrant Maldivian flavours.
