Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Gili Lankanfushi sits on the tiny sandbar of Lankanfushi just off the North Malé Atoll. 

Rooms at Gili Lankanfushi

The overwater suites, complete with ‘water gardens,' open-air bathrooms, sundecks and rooftop terraces, are connected to the island by private walkways or jetties, while the residences are accessible only by row boat. Relax and enjoy the uninterrupted views over the sea. The private reserve at Gili Lankanfushi is the pinnacle of decadence - sitting atop an aquamarine lagoon, this private palace comes complete with your own personal butlers.

Food & Drink

Whether you decide to dine in your villa, enjoy a barbecue at desert island retreat One Palm Island or sit at a table dug in the sand at Horizon, overlooking Lankanfushi lagoon, you will be sampling some of the best cuisine in the Maldives, including some of its freshest seafood and produce from the hotel's own organic garden.


Unwind at the splendid overwater spa, and watch the colourful underwater world from your massage table.  If you're not relaxed enough after that, watch your favourite film in the jungle cinema.

Activities at Gili Lankanfushi
