About Us

Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is a short 20 minute boat ride from Male International Airport. It is a tiny coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villas. Everywhere you look, marine life abounds. And the gleaming waters beckon.
Concept The forty-four stilted villas plus the vast Private Reserve uphold the philosophy of Intelligent Luxury. They are crafted in a traditional style from natural materials and offer roof-top and over-water sundecks, featuring open air bathrooms, sumptuous daybeds and a personal entertainment center. For ultimate privacy, we have seven Crusoe Residences that are only accessible by personal boat. Come ashore for some great dining and equally great wines or perhaps a romantic moonlit dinner delivered right to the villa. The possibilities are endless.
The interior decoration has been devised to recreate a natural habitat, using sustainable woods, natural materials and traditional fabrics, whilst still offering all the modern day amenities and creature comforts of true luxury. 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.
The Maldives is a paradise for snorkeling and diving 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.
Management Gili Lankanfushi is managed by HPL Hotels & Resorts, who have developed and operate unique properties in the Maldives, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia (Bali) and Malaysia under the brand names Concorde Hotels, Boutique Hotels and Hard Rock Hotels.

Luxury comes in the form of a private dinner on a secluded island.

Main Restaurant Located on the west side of Lankanfushi offering a superb natural environment to enjoy a relaxing breakfast or romantic dinner. The style of food caters to all requirements and offers a combination of dishes that allows East to meet the West in culinary terms.
By the Sea Restaurant The restaurant presents a fusion Peruvian-Japanese culinary adventure combining breathtaking views to the ocean with intimate dining for just 26 guests. Located on the elevated top level of a double story facility located on the island, the restaurant includes a Sushi Bar featuring daybeds plus five tables, each seating up to four guests, and an open kitchen station which can be used for live cooking classes.
The expansive tasting menu includes a quintessential fusion of food; from traditional Japanese to indigenous European, Asian and Peruvian flavours. Local ingredients are used and include the daily catch and fresh organic produce picked from the resort’s own gardens. Guests have the ability to select from an array of signature dishes accompanied by a fine selection of Japanese sakes and an extensive list of wines.
By the Sea restaurant is another innovative dining experience at Gili Lankanfushi. It can be found amongst the treetops on the sunrise side of the island and features an intimate dining experience for just 26 guests. The simply sublime fusion of Peruvian and Japanese flavors is only outdone by the breathtaking view over the starlit ocean.
Over Water Bar The Bar is a stunning construction over the shallow lagoon and offers snacks and light meals throughout the day. The lunch buffet at the bar is a very casual experience, where you can create your own menu from the wide selection of fresh salad leaves from the garden, sushi, Mediterranean delicacies, daily catch of fish, imported meats and local spices and herbs.
The Underground Wine Cellar and Chocolate Cave Situated between the restaurant and the garden is the gourmet cellar, initially visible only by the softly undulating wood-shingled roofline. Entering through a doorway sculptured from copper sheeting and deco-like carved wood embellishment, a softly lit glass staircase descends beneath ground level to the cavernous cellar. Lined with a softly dappled satiny-smooth stucco plaster finish, recessed free-form wine racks display more than 300 labels. Running almost the entire length of the cellar is a six-meter (twenty-foot) driftwood tree trunk, slotted with eight individual glass table tops and personal wine glass shelves. Wine tasting and wine dinners are hosted by the wine sommelier as to the requirement of each guest. Guests may either order at the cellar or from our wine list and have the wine of their choice delivered to the restaurant or their villa in time to enjoy it with their meal.
Our unique underground wine cellar has recently had a truly unique experience added. In addition to our artisanal cheese and deli room, you may now also experience our handmade, gourmet chocolate cave. Our Executive pastry chef has created a chocolate menu using only the finest chocolate, with some very interesting and unusual flavours. To further the experience ever more, our Sommelier would be delighted to create a fantastic chocolate and wine pairing which may be enjoyed before or after dinner. Meera Spa The Meera Spa offers a wide range of holistic therapies and programmes with internationally trained therapists, wellness instructors and a resident Ayurvedic Doctor. Glass floor-panels beneath massage tables heighten the sensual experience, whilst a Maldivian sand massage presents yet another new encounter. Other facilities include five over water treatment rooms, Yoga/Tai- Chi champa, steam rooms, chill rooms, sauna and a fully equipped over-water gymnasium.
Ocean Paradise Dive Centre The Ocean Paradise Dive Centre’s multi-lingual PADI instructors as well as the small dive group sizes ensure that guests of all experience levels get the best service at all times. PADI dive centre is equipped with the latest equipments and many renowned dive sites including world famous Manta Point are within 10 minutes boat ride from the resort.

Best of the Best

As if in a dream, the tiny coral island of Gili Lankanfushi appears along one of the loveliest lagoons in the Maldives. The 45 stilted villas float surreally above the luminous waters; for total seclusion, seven Crusoe Residences are accessible only by boat or pontoon. There’s a full PADI diving school and plentiful watersports; at the oversea Meera Spa, the lapping waves are as healing as its ages-old therapies. Among the many dining options is an underground wine cellar, accessible by glass staircase, and their signature restaurant By the Sea has a new teppanyaki grill.

Advisor Tip
