Gili Lankanfushi (Soneva Gili)
Maldives, Indian Ocean
About Gili Lankanfushi (Former Soneva Gili)
Gili Lankanfushi is located in one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives, with jetties threading across the crystal clear water out to spacious over-sized villas that provide spectacular water views of the ocean from every room. Apart from the sparkling waters, the tiny island provides a very intimate atmosphere fused with luxuries of the highest international standard to create a wonderfully serene and natural experience.
Gili Lankanfushi is relaxed and casual. The all-year-round, comfortable, tropical temperature requires only light and natural fabrics so Polo-style shirts, summer dresses and sarongs are ideal. You may want a jacket or wrap in the winter when temperatures can be as low as 23 degrees Celsius, or 73 Fahrenheit. Shoes are not practical on the soft sand, so bring sandals or simply enjoy barefoot freedom.
Ultimate privacy can be found at Gili Lankanfushi™. 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.
Dining experiences include a romantic, moonlit dinner on the deck of your villa, a sunset champagne cruise on a traditional dhoni, or dinners in the underground Gourmet Cellar – the settings are as memorable as the cuisine. From the fine wines to the excellent malts, we have achieved a reputation of providing our guests a unique dining experience.
In the Sanskrit language, Meera means ocean, and that’s where you’ll find the spa – built right over the sea. The sound of the lapping waves and the beauty of the sweeping views will set you at ease the moment you step in. At Meera Spa, you’ll find yourself relaxing and unwinding amidst the best that nature has to offer.
Make yourself comfortable on the massage table, and you’ll be treated to views of underwater life through the glass windows beneath. Aches and knots are magically soothed away, thanks to an artful combination of therapies from all over the world; these draw on the healing wisdom of age-old cultures and are infused with modern know-how to rejuvenate your senses, calm your mind and uplift your soul.
