Time stands still in this pristine hidden island kingdom.
Gili Lankanfushi's secluded location and ecologically conscious, no expense spared luxury makes every sunrise sparkle with the promise of adventure, and every sunset paint an unforgettable tableaux. An exclusive all overwater villa resort of surpassing beauty, the disarmingly sophisticated and intimate atmosphere immediately makes guests feel at home. Indulge yourself with some of the most attentive personalised service and best facilities in the area. Sway from a hammock above a warm, shallow lagoon. Watch dolphins leap in the wake of your private boat. Sink into your petal-strewn bath and watch the magnificent Maldivian sunset or spot new constellations and shooting stars from the privacy of your rooftop terrace before falling asleep under the glittering night sky.
Gili Lankanfushi's exclusive collection of 45 thatched villas and residences sit over crystalline lagoon waters. Made from sustainable materials, each property features amazing views of the open horizon as well as a private water garden, sun deck with loungers and a spacious semi-open-air bathroom for effortless immersion in the island's natural splendour. Bright and comfortable, with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, they're the perfect bases from which to live out a modern-day desert island escape. Many of them are connected to the shore by wooden jetties, whilst others such as Crusoe Residences have personal pontoon boats and stand alone in the sea for the ultimate privacy. Villa Suites boast direct ocean access for great swimming and snorkelling opportunities. Upgrade to a Pool Villa to embrace Lankanfushi's restful ambience from the privacy of your own secluded infinity pool. Excellent for families, Lagoon Residences house large living rooms, wine chillers, rooftop daybeds and dining areas, as well as relaxing water hammocks in front of their sun-drenched terraces.
