Kanuhura is a coral island hideaway in a remote atoll of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Discover Kanuhura Resort, a secluded and tranquil retreat, a treasured pearl wrapped amid the fantastic blue that is the Indian Ocean created from nature using traditional Maldivian crafts of thatch, timber and stone.

Close by are some of the world's best diving sites, with the outer reef dropping down nearly 2,000 metres. It has a spa, an aerobics studio and gymnasium.

Accommodation is in villas either on the island's coral sand fringe or in a little village on stilts at the end of a wooden pier. 'In-villa' dining is a speciality, providing romantic dinners and special celebrations in the privacy of your villa, or various locations on the island.

Each villa has its own private outdoor area with mesmerising views to the ocean. Extensive use of hand-crafted wood, raffia, bamboo and other natural materials creates an elegant rustic interior befitting the naturally beautiful island surroundings.

Kanuhura provides cuisines of unimaginable variety – food for romance, for relaxation, for the sheer pleasure of company. The dress code when dining at our restaurants is smart casual or island chic. Clothing must be worn over swimwear and gentlemen are kindly requested to wear long pants in the evening.

The resort offers a great variety of activities and sports on land. The ocean provides for the very best in diving, snorkelling, sailing, water-skiing and windsurfing.

The spa also has a fully equipped fitness centre, aerobics studio, spa boutique, and separate steam bath, dry sauna, cold plunge pools and Jacuzzis, for ladies and gentlemen. The spa has eight treatment rooms including four doubles. The outdoor spa pavilion is the ideal setting for massages overlooking the lagoon.

Tropical in climate, the Maldives has two significant seasons; the north-east monsoon, from December to March, is light and fairly dry, while the south-west monsoon, from June to November, occasionally brings brief downpours followed by sunshine.

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:   Expect to get pampered in Kanuhura island, apart from its unparalleled beauty that baffles the visitors, it has a resort of the same name and it comes equipped with luxurious 5-star hotel decor and luxe amenities. Here, you can rejuvenate in the spa the resort provides as well as a private outdoor shower and a personal villa host. If you want to spend family time in fun activities, this island has various such things to do, like diving and snorkeling. You may as well as indulge you kids in a Kids Club where entertaining activities like beach volleyball, tennis, indoor games etc are made available.

Review:   We had a fantastic time. Difficult to fault the resort, service, friendliness and attention to detail. I guess the only one criticism is the food service at the pool bar. It suffers I believe from the distance between the bar and the kitchen.

Review:   First of all, it's Mr. Chye not Mr. Choong. Surname comes first in the name. The staff are friendly and villa host, Kazu is friendly and helpful. White sandy beaches for both sunrises and sunsets. Pristine clear azure blue waters and well landscaped gardens. Great spa facilities. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and the outdoor shower is great. Free bicycle to roam the island in and free boat ride to sister island. And the island is isolated and is quiet which is great. Airport arrival pick up to seaplane and seaplane transfer from resort back to airport well organised and the 45 minute flight is worth taking. Had a great relaxing time at the resort.

Review:   Every aspect of our vacation at Kanuhura was amazing. From the delightful lounge at the airport in Male to the warm send-off at the conclusion of our stay, it all exceeded my expectations. Every staff member was polite and friendly, the food was amazing, our "hut" was just beautiful, and the island was gorgeous. The designs, colors, even the staff members' clothing were all lovely. I've traveled quite a bit and stayed at some fine resorts, but this one tops my list, just because all of the details were so well done. It's a long way from my home in Chicago, but I want to go back! Thank you all for making my stay so memorable!
