Exceptional from all aspects and from the first till the last minute, we have been to most of the top resorts in the Maldives and you are definitely on the top, thank you for a lovely and memorable stay

My third visit to the resort, and the first since it changed owners. Delighted that standards have remained as high as ever. The "rooms" are actually villas, all over water. Very comfortable with great rest areas outdoors and inside. Complete privacy, and beautiful design. The service from staff at all levels - from housekeeping up to the General Manager - is attentive, friendly without being intrusive, and superbly reliable and efficient. The food is varied and excellent. Wine is pricey in the Maldives, but the list has plenty which is good enough without breaking the bank. Excellent dive-centre and boats. Also excellent spa. And a well-equipped gym. But the best thing is the relaxed and comfortable vibe about the place. You take off your shoes on the boat to the island and don't need them again till you leave! And it has the advantage of being only a 20 minute fast boat ride from Male International Airport. So you don't lose a day in either direction travelling by seaplane to a more remote island - which is fun but costs time and money. Tip: Book the in-room dining option one evening. We had an amazing grilled fish with delicious starters and dessert. And go on the dolphin-watching cruise. Amazing to see hundreds of these wonderful creatures all around the boat - leaping out of the water and spinning in all directions!

Gili Lankanfushi has you take care of, from the moment you show up to the moment you leave. Arriving into Male's International Airport is nothing special, as it's quite crowded and can be overwhelming after sucha long journey. Have no fear, staff from Gili will greet you, and make sure you are taken care of, getting you to their private speed boat as soon as possible. A quick 15 minute transfer leaves you at the resort within an hour of having landed, which is incredible! Many other resort require a sea plane transfer, and while this migh tsound fun - it is nothing but hectic. You are shuttled by bus to the other side of the airport, then put in a waiting room until your plane departs. Note: sea planes are operated by a third party TMA and they lump several stops onto one plane - so it could be a while. If a quick easy and convenient transfer to a five star luxury resort is not enough of a reason to book Gili here are just a few of the many highlights. When you arrive 5-10 staff members will greet you, they already know your name and where you have come from. They will not forget as long as you are there too. Within 24 hours you are accommodated and the entire island staff seems to know who you are, making the resort feel like home in no time at all. With nearly 300 staff, and only 45 rooms, there is always someone there to help. The go to contact "Mr. Friday" is Brilliant - Call them 24/7 for anything you need, F&B reservations, watersports, snorkel gear, fresh ice, a private dining experience, fresh towels etc. Within a mate of moments they'll have the appropriate staff dispatched to you! Mr. Mamdhooh took care of us, and he was awesome! Getting us what we needed, he always had a story to share about the culture surrounding the island as well. The Food at Gili is Amazing, with three main locations - Don't Miss By The Sea, and fresh Sushi from Jackson, while Abraham cooks up a mean a la carte meal. Try his special Tuna sampler for mind blowing cuisine experience. Gili has fresh Tuna caught daily by a fisherman that is on their staff! It can't get any better than that. Want to go Diving? Stop by and see Harvey - they have a Dive boat that'll hold 40 people but you'll likely be one of two to five on the rig. Dive sites are 15 minutes away and visibility it 70' +. SUP, hobie cat's, kayaks etc. are all complimentary from the Dive center too! Interested in Snorkelling and learning more about the marine life? The on staff Marine Biologist Clare will teach you all about what is happening around the resort, and how they are doing their best to preserve the coral's and also grow new ones to help sustain their local environment. The Spa - wow, talk about a view...everywhere. When you lay down for treatments, there floor is made of glass, allowing you to relax and watch schools of fish swim by as you experience the unique Merra Spa brand Gili has put together. All treatment rooms accommodate two guests, and are secluded and peaceful. Destination Dining is a MUST! Have dinner on the beach, one palm island, elevated at the 360 table or the chef's table in the garden (where they grow all their produce organically and local). This is an intimate experience for two, and will let the head chef Harry's fine cuisine shine. Interested in Wine? Fabrice, the head Sommelier from Bordeaux has a wine list that will tease your palette each night, for at least a month straight! The Rooms at Gili Speak for themselves, spacious, comfortable and beautiful. Each Villa is equipped with 9 Bose speakers throughout the space so you can constantly listen to music straight of your iPhone, or use the resort provided iPod if you'd like. Double head showers are great for feeling refreshed throughout the day. Your own private rooftop patio awaits for afternoon sun bathing, with total privacy from those around you. There is also a covered day bed, which you can opt to have made up for a night under the stars as well. Each Morning you'll wake up refreshed, and enjoy the Breakfast buffet that I could not possibly try everything from if I stay there for two weeks total! Each area of the world is covered, from western to asian, and of course bundles of fresh local fruit. More important than all the hands on experiences though is the people. The Staff/Hosts truly enjoy their jobs, and where they work. They want to get to know you, and they want you to feel at home. No one wears shoes in the entire resort - as it is laid back, and quiet. When we were there they were at 90% occupancy, yet I never saw more than 2-4 other guests at a time. This island is big, spacious and truly paradise on earth. Booking at GIli is a must, you'll regret going anywhere else, I promise!

Gili Lakanfushi is without a doubt the most incredible place I have ever visited. Located 25min away from Male by Speed Boat the hotel is absolutely unique. Each room is a very spacious suite mostly made out of wood with its direct access to the lagoon. There are 45 water villas (no beach villas). The entire resort itself is very eco friendly. You will be attributed your “Mr Friday” who will assist you throughout your entire stay. Your “Friday” can book all your reservations for dinners, activities and diving. In terms of activities, you have a choice of many complimentary water-sports, Tennis, football, cycling, pétanque, snorkeling and of course Scuba diving. The hotel has 3 restaurants; the breakfast buffet, the “over water bar” with an a la carte menu and “by the sea” a Japanese restaurant with incredible food. The Spa boasts incredible treatments but are on the expensive end. The entire team at Gili made us feel very welcome and took extremely good care of us. Pat & her team at the Spa, Harvey & Nasif at the diving centre, Chef Abraham who cooked incredible lobster and Nicolas the GM who did a fantastic job with his team. Always keep the best for last - Our “Mr Friday” Mamdooh! Monday if you ever read this, Clem and I both THANK YOU, you are the best ! We visited the Maldives three times, an incredible place. From a very harsh grader, stop comparing all the other hotels on TripAdvisor and book Gili if your budget allows it, it’s truly paradise on earth! TIPS - If you’re renting a villa suite I would recommend Villas 18 & 31 which are at the end of Jetty 1 & Jetty 2. If your budget allows it then go for the Crusoe Residence 3 or 4 as they have the best view. Ask your “Friday” to give you a tour of the “private reserve”, it’s one of a kind.
