Overview



The Maldives boasts extensive coral reef systems and rich marine biodiversity, which means there's much to see in the surrounding clear waters. Just standing by the edge of the jetty, you can easily spot reef sharks, needlefish and boxfish swimming beneath. Put on a snorkelling mask, don a dive suit and encounter the underwater life up close. Join our resident marine biologist as he enthralls you with stories and maybe even points out a secret hiding place or two.

Gili Lankanfushi™, Maldives is an intimate coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villa accommodations. Everywhere you look, marine life abounds. And the gleaming waters beckon.

Gili Lankanfushi™ is set on the private island of Lankanfushi in the North Malé Atoll. This luxury resort is just a 20-minute speedboat ride from the International Airport at Malé, the capital of the Republic of Maldives.

This 5-star resort is set on the private tropical island of Lankanfushi in the Malé Atoll, one of the 19 atolls that stretch over 800 kilometres through the Indian Ocean. It is one of the 1190 islands that make up the Maldives.

Ultimate privacy can be found at Gili Lankanfushi™. With just 45 luxurious overwater villas, including Crusoe Residences and The Private Reserve reached only by boat, you'll have a piece of paradise all to yourself. Each villa is designed with the utmost attention to detail, and built to be environmentally friendly. Your own private water garden and sun deck, as well as a separate shower linked to your bathroom by an open-air walkway allow you to live right by the water's edge.

Each villa will enjoy the services of a dedicated Mr Friday™ – so named after Robinson Crusoe's loyal assistant and dear friend. Available 24 hours a day, your Mr Friday, or Ms Friday, will be delighted to help arrange excursions, spa appointments, sunset cruises, restaurant reservations and even help pack or unpack your luggage. Parents will be pleased to know that Mr Friday can also keep the little ones entertained with storytelling and craft sessions.

The name 'Mr Friday' was coined by the adventure literature Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Dafoe. It is an apt rendition that tells a story about a man, Robinson Crusoe, who had a shipwreck in a storm and was washed up on a paradise island. Although safe and unharmed, Robinson was alone but later found a native companion whom he named 'Mr Friday' after the day he had suddenly appeared. Robinson and Mr Friday soon became fast friends and set off to island adventures together.

Here in our island of No News and No Shoes, we have our very own Mr Friday/Ms Friday. They will be your companion who will show you the way around the island and set you off to your adventures right here in Gili Lankanfushi.

Luxury dining comes in the form of a private dinner on this secluded island. The cuisine will whet your appetite with fresh offerings and local produce, while the extraordinary settings will leave an indelible impression.

Savour grilled seafood over the water, sip champagne in a traditional dhoni as the sun sets, or venture into the underground cellar for a unique dining experience. Luxury comes in the form of a private dinner on a secluded island. The cuisine will whet your appetite with fresh offerings and local produce, while the extraordinary settings will leave an indelible impression.

The surroundings are teeming with marine life 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.

At Gili Lankanfushi, we are very sensitive to the environment. The utmost care has been taken in developing the island with respect to its ecological balance.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Very big villas. This resort has only water villas, there are no beach bungalows. Each villa has two level where you can go snorkeling directly from the terrace. You can also enjoy a romantic dinner at the beach. Wifi is free and available on the whole island.
