Gili Lankanfushi (formerly Soneva Gili) was the first all over-water villa resort in the Maldives and continues to lead the way with its palatial villas-on-stilts. There is a total of 44 villas plus the vast Private Reserve. All are crafted in a traditional style from natural materials and offer roof-top and over-water sundecks, featuring open air bathrooms, luxurious daybeds and a personal entertainment centre. Some of the villas at Gili Lankanfushi are accessed by walkways and for the ultimate privacy others can only be accessed by personal boat. Gili Lankanfushi has a casual atmosphere, the food is superb and nothing is too much trouble for your personal Man Friday.   

The interior decoration has been devised to recreate a natural habitat, using sustainable woods, natural materials and traditional fabrics, whilst still offering all the modern day amenities and creature comforts of true luxury. At Gili Lankanfushi the utmost care has been taken in developing the island with respect to its ecological balance. 

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, Gili Lankanfushi has achieved a reputation for providing guests with unique dining experiences.
