Gili Langkanfushi / Lankanfushi
No. 1 Hotel in Maldives and Top 5 Best Hotel in the World 2018
Gili Langkanfushi is located on the private tropical island of Lankanfushi in the North Male Atoll, Republic of Maldives. The tiny coral island, located at 4° 17’N of 30° 55’E, is set within one of 19 atolls that stretch across 800 kilometres of the Indian Ocean and one of the 1,190 islands that make up the Maldives. Gili Langkanfushi offers just 45 sumptuous over-water villas, including 7 Crusoe Residences and The Private Reserve reached only by boat. Each villa has not only been designed and built with the utmost attention to detail, but are also environmentally-friendly and reflect the harmony of life by the water's edge. Each has its own private water garden and sun decks, and the bathrooms have a separate shower accessed along an open-air walkway. Gili Langkanfushi, the first all over-water villa resort in the Maldives, is easily accessible by a 20-minute speedboat ride from Male’ International Airport in the Male’ atoll. Lankanfushi is located in one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives. Apart from the crystal clear waters, for which the Maldives is world renowned, the island and lagoon provide the unique experience of combining the lush, natural vegetation on the island with the abundance of colourful marine life around the island’s reefs.
The island provides a very intimate atmosphere and the unique design of the villas, set along jetties that stretch into the lagoon, create a wonderfully serene environment. The location provides a very convenient platform from which to discover the many dive sites that may be explored in the Male’ atoll. The interior decor has been devised to re-create a natural habitat, using sustainable woods, natural materials and traditional fabrics, whilst still offering all of the contemporary amenities of a truly luxurious living space. The utmost care has been given to ensure that the resort is environmentally-friendly and reflects the harmony that is congruent with life by the water’s edge. The 45 over-sized water villa suites and residences have all the luxuries one would expect from one of the world’s most exclusive resorts.
