Gili Lankanfushi is set on the private island of Lankanfushi in the North Malé Atoll. This luxury resort is just a 20-minute speedboat ride from the International Airport at Malé, the capital of the Republic of Maldives.

With just 45 sumptuous overwater villas, including Crusoe Residences and The Private Reserve reached only by boat, you’ll have a piece of paradise all to yourself. Each villa is designed with the utmost attention to detail, and built to be environmentally friendly. Your own private water garden and sun deck, as well as a separate shower linked to your bathroom by an open-air walkway allow you to live right by the water’s edge.

Savor grilled seafood over the water, sip champagne in a traditional dhoni as the sun sets, or venture into the underground cellar for a unique dining experience. Luxury comes in the form of a private dinner on a secluded island. The cuisine will whet your appetite with fresh offerings and local produce, while the extraordinary settings will leave an indelible impression. 



Discover the wonders of the deep with the Ocean Paradise Dive Centre. Some of the best dive sites in the Maldives, such as Manta Point, are a short boat ride from the resort. Multilingual expert PADI instructors run day and night dives and course for all levels. The 9th most environmentally responsible dive centre in Asia, we take environmental practices seriously - you can even join a science dive with the team and collect data for the likes of SharkWatch and the Manta Trust.


Visitors to idyllic Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives can now learn to catch that perfect wave with the opening of a top-notch surf centre on the island. The high end resort has teamed up with renowned surfing company Tropicsurf to offer expert instruction for all ages and levels, complementing the five-star, luxury experience. In the North Male atoll, surrounded by the sparkling Indian Ocean, Gili Lankanfushi is ideally located for unbeatable surfing. Some of the best breaks in the country lie on the doorstep, with three just a five-minute boat ride from the resort and several more within 20 minutes. Tropical water temperatures, consistent swell and low crowds add to the appeal. Thrill-seekers will love the challenge of the open tubes at Cokes or the excitement of racetrack waves like Honkies, while mellow waves at Ninjas or in the calm of the lagoon keep novices happy.

Sail the Indian Ocean on a luxury 14-metre Riviera yacht. Climb on board for a whale shark watching trip, a fishing excursion, or sunset dolphin cruise. Enjoy exclusive transfers to the airport, a private desert island picnic or explore atolls further away. With an en-suite master cabin, two smaller berths and full catering service on board, there’s no finer way to travel.
