Luxury today is seen to be related to the quality of life, but its definition is deeply personal to the individual. Luxury can be defined as time spent with loved ones, a sense of belonging, a moment of absolute privacy, a perfect cup of coffee, a wonderful book, or simply an opportunity to escape from reality. Ultimately, luxury is the freedom to make your own choice.
At GiliLankanfushi, we offer our guests the freedom to make that choice, providing an opportunity to redefine what luxury means, and ensuring that whatever their definition, we continuously strive to meet and exceed their expectations.

1 The Private Reserve (1700 sq.m)

Standing alone in the middle of a sparkling, turquoise lagoon, 500 metres from our main resort, GiliLankanfushi’s Private Reserve is the quintessence of luxury, privacy and seclusion. Sprawled across multi-tiered levels, this rustic-chic fort of dreams is where your idea of the ultimate island escape instantly becomes a reality.

A private boat is yours to come and go as you please – most people, however, never find the need to leave.

Various bars and restaurants

Located directly on the beach and open for breakfast and dinner, Kashiveli – which translates as ‘coral sands’ in the local Dhivehi language – embodies locally-sourced, nutritious ingredients and vibrant flavours through a marriage of land and ocean.

Breakfasts celebrate the region’s wide variety of fresh tropical fruits with an ever-changing array of smoothies, juices and fresh fruit plates made to order, as well as traditionally Maldivian offerings such as Mas Huni and international favourites.

Over Water Bar

Standing on stilts in the lagoon, the Overwater Bar floats in a dreamy landscape and offers breathtaking, uninterrupted sea views.

At lunchtime, find salads fresh from our organic garden, Mediterranean dishes and the catch of the day. Come sunset, it’s where you’ll want to be with a coconut martini in hand, relishing the balmy evening breeze.

A sanctuary of scented bliss, our Meera Spa sits in a secluded bay and is sprawled across languid waters.

This holistic haven includes six over-water treatment rooms, an Ayurvedic Treatment Champa, steam and sauna rooms and an open-air relaxation area offering breathtaking views. A seaside yoga and meditation champa, where you can salute the sun come dawn or dusk, lies not too far away.


Multilingual expert instructors run day and night dives and courses for all levels.

Pop on a snorkelling mask and pair of fins and head to the 15-metre drop-off zone at the edge of our house reef. Exploring its dazzling coral walls is like swimming in an aquarium and there is a good chance you will see turtles and rays.
