Gili Lankanfushi

Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is a short 20-minute boat ride from Male International Airport. It is a tiny coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villas. Everywhere you look, marine life abounds. And the gleaming waters beckon. Luxury today is related to the quality of life, but its definition is deeply personal to the individual. Luxury can be defined as time spent with loved ones, a sense of belonging, a moment of absolute privacy, a perfect cup of coffee, a wonderful book, or simply an opportunity to escape from reality. Ultimately, luxury is the freedom to make your own choice. At Gili Lankanfushi, the guests are offered the freedom to make that choice, providing an opportunity to redefine what luxury means and ensuring that whatever their definition, Gili Lankanfushi continuously strives to meet and exceed their expectations.

Concept The forty-four stilted villas plus the vast Private Reserve uphold the philosophy of Intelligent Luxury. They are crafted in a traditional style from natural materials and offer roof-top and over-water sundecks, featuring open-air bathrooms, sumptuous daybeds, and a personal entertainment center. For ultimate privacy, there are 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 modern-day amenities and creature comforts of true luxury. At Gili Lankanfushi, the environment is a sensitive issue. The utmost care has been taken in developing the island 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 in the know. Gili Lankanfushi offers 45 sumptuous overwater villas, including Crusoe Residences and The Private Reserve, reached only by boat. Each villa is designed with the utmost attention to detail and built to be environmentally friendly. Each has its own private water garden and sun decks, as well as a separate shower linked to your bathroom by an open-air walkway, which allows you to live right by the water's edge.


On each night of the week, embark on a different Gili Wine and Dine experience at unique locations around the island. Sit back and allow the team of chefs to surprise you with mouthwatering dishes from a bespoke menu just for you. Gili Lankanfushi's gastronomic vision sees the Executive Chef combining locally sourced seafood and a daily harvest from the expansive Organic Garden with seasonal, specially selected products to create unique, European-Maldivian fusion fare. An assortment of settings on the island lends themselves to a collection of food experiences that allow you to dine as your mood directs. Vegetarians and individuals with special dietary requirements are also in for a treat since no requirement is impossible as personalization is key. Allow the culinary team to delight and surprise you with creative dishes that are out of the menus, as it is what they do best.

''Kashiveli'' - Located directly on the beach and open for breakfast and dinner, Kashiveli - which translates as 'coral sands' in the local Dhivehi language - embodies locally-sourced, nutritious ingredients and vibrant flavors through a marriage of land and ocean. Breakfasts celebrate the region's wide variety of fresh tropical fruits with an ever-changing array of smoothies, juices, and fresh fruit plates made to order, as well as traditionally Maldivian offerings such as Mas Huni and international favorites. Four evenings per week, see the beach and overwater bar transformed with a buzzing market experience, with the Asian Street Market, Mediterranean Spice Souk, Passage to India, and Maldivian Seafood Grill nights. The Gili Culinary Journey will offer three nights a week, with a rotating menu of signature dishes taking guests on a gastronomic journey through nine cities, from traditional handmade Sardinian pasta and fresh Antalya salads to vibrant Indonesian Rendang curry and Tamil lamb.

''Overwater Bar'' - Standing on stilts in the lagoon, the Overwater Bar floats in a dreamy landscape and offers breathtaking, uninterrupted sea views. At lunchtime, find salads fresh from the organic garden, Mediterranean dishes, the catch of the day, and daily chef's special. For a healthier option, consider the light yet nutritional and substantial dish from Hari's superfood menu. Come sunset; it's where you'll want to be with a coconut martini in hand, relishing the balmy evening breeze. For a dinner experience at the Over Water Bar's outer deck, indulge in a Seafood Basket for two with a bottle of Champagne under the stars. On Sundays, the Passage through India Tandoor night sees sizzling meats, spicy specialties and homemade chapatis, rotis, poppadoms, and the ever so delicious naans being whipped up by the chefs using the tandoori oven. Those craving grilled meats at dinner, choose from the newly introduced Gili Lava Grill menu with accompaniments and special sauces.

''Fini Foni'' - In Dhivehi, Cold Sweet suggests a place where you can have some cold sweet fun. Savor unique homemade flavors of Popsicle and Ice Cream by the poolside and a stone throw from the Tennis Court, an enhancement to the Gili Wine & Dine experience during the day while you bask under the sun for that glowing tan. Mouthwatering snacks and delicious cocktails are also made available for you upon request. 

''Underground Wine Cellar'' - A unique underground wine cellar that is home to a wide range of wines from around the world, a cozy space to learn more about wines with a team of knowledgeable sommeliers.

It houses more than 500 varieties of wine from numerous international regions. Venture across the old and new worlds with a tasting session lead by the expert sommelier is also a great entertainer.
