Virtual tour #1 of 1


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:   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:   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!

Review:   A memorable holiday in perfect surroundings with outstanding staff to make the experience even more wonderful. I had a fantastic time from the very first moment I stepped off the plane in Male to being greeted and transported to a private lounge to wait for the seaplane to the moment I left the beautiful, magical island. The accommodation was perfect (including the little gecko on the outside wall). I enjoyed my private pool, relaxing in it numerous times each day. All the staff at the Sun Dive centre were amazing and I had a wonderful time on each dive, especially seeing the Mantas two days in a row. The food was amazing, it was lovely to be greeted and called by my name as I went for breakfast or dinner, such a personal touch. Adam my host made sure everything was perfect, checking in with me a number of times each day to double check I had everything I needed and organising things for me. I was made to feel most welcome by all staff but in particular the management team made great effort to ensure I was enjoying my stay, thank you :) Everything was spotless thanks to the teams cleaning the rooms, cleaning the pool and maintaining the grounds. Thank you for a truly magical holiday, I hope to be back soon.

Review:   From a warm welcome to a warm goodbye it was perfect. The service, always with a smile, was excellent. For transportation on the Island you have your own bycicle and we loved it. No make-up, no shoes, no worries. Complete relaxation on this Island. Restaurants and bars with good food and drinks. Lunch on the sister Island is a real must. As is also private dinner on the isolated sister Island. Be prepared that for the private BBQ there is really a lot of food. We were lucky with the dolphin safari, there were hundreds. A real dream. If you want to visit the turtle farm on another Island, make sure you have all the details of this excursion, otherwise this could be a disappointment. We had another idea of this excursion. The Spa also is a must. Perfect ambiance and professional therapists. Crystal massage is top. You can walk around the island in half an hour. We had the Beach Pool Villa. Excellent. Nice decoration. Big half-open bathroom. Walk-in closet. They thought of everything. Slippers, bathrobes, beach bag etc etc. Nice veranda and shallow pool to dream in. Excess to the beach with you own furniture. Large white sandy beach. Paradise view on the sunset. At this side the hydro-airplanes are landing and taking off. That goes with some noise, but it is never boring to see this. They aren't allowed to fly in the dark, so no big disturbance there.
