Gili Lankanfushi

Find overwater perfection in the Maldives

Stand in your overwater villa with an icy drink and gaze into the clear lagoon below, watching the fish dart through the water. This is a pinch-yourself moment. This is Gili Lankanfushi.

Perfect for nature lovers, all 45 of Gili Lankanfushi’s villas are overwater, giving you an up close and personal view of the lagoon’s vibrant underwater world (pop on a snorkelling mask and you might be lucky enough to swim alongside giant manta rays and baby sharks). On the inside, bespoke upcycled furniture and organic toiletries are just a couple of ways that the resort has implemented eco-friendly features.

The ‘close to nature’ ethos makes itself known at breakfast, lunch and dinner, too. Enjoy salad leaves picked from the kitchen garden, the freshest of fish at the Overwater Bar and seasonal tasting menus at By The Sea, the resort’s intimate fusion Peruvian-Japanese restaurant.

We have stayed at this resort, so get in touch if you have any questions!

Reasons to choose Gili Lankanfushi

Perfect for couples

Whether you’re ready to say ‘I do’, looking for a honeymoon destination or simply want to enjoy an intimate getaway for two, Gili Lankanfushi is the perfect choice. Want to tie the knot in paradise? The resort’s beautiful lagoon champa (a fabulous wedding pavilion) is a dream location, and the resort’s wedding planner will take care of all of those special little details for you. Simply want to get away from it all and reconnect with guaranteed peace and quiet? Book the Crusoe Residence (a private villa only reachable by boat). Spend the day at the resort’s spa together before enjoying dinner under the stars.

Surf, dive & snorkel

Ready to catch some waves? Hop in a boat and just three minutes away from the island you’ll be surfing some of the best waves in the Maldives (don’t worry, beginners can team up with an instructor). Or why not give diving a go? The famous Manta Point is just a 10-minute boat ride from the resort, while newbies can try a three-hour Discover Scuba Diving session. And, of course, snorkelling is always on the cards, with the added bonus of trips being guided by on-site marine biologists.

Authentic experiences

When you’re not relaxing at the villa, why not take a trip to Huraa? This tiny local island is just 20 minutes away by boat and will give you an insight into authentic Maldivian life (as well as the chance to buy a few souvenirs). Or why not try your hand at fishing the local way before sitting down to a traditional Maldivian meal at Kashiveli.
