Gili Lankanfushi was the first Maldivan resort to offer purely overwater accommodation and does so in superb Robinson Crusoe style. That is, if Robinson Crusoe had won the lottery.

Their 44 Villas are entirely made of wood with spacious decks and often large roof terraces as well.  Each villa offers the utmost in seclusion and privacy; if the urge takes you it is possible to flop off your deck right from your sunbed straight into a clear lagoon and (depending on which jetty you choose) swim over to an incredible reef, where you can have a snorkel with the resident marine biologist.

Dining experiences at the resort are superb; delicious produce is provided by the island’s organic garden and unique destination dining is their forte offering the opportunity to take dinner on your own private deck by the light of the moon if you so wish, or even in the private dining space within the organic garden itself.

Each villa is provided with bicycles which come in very handy when getting about as their jetties are lengthy!  Use your personal bicycles to visit the open-air cinema, go for lunch at By the Sea, serving Peruvian-Japanese fusion including exquisite sushi, or to head to the spa for an early-morning yoga session or massage.

Alternatively, stay in your beautiful villa and allow your Mr or Mrs Friday bring you whatever you need.
