We came here for 5 days on our honeymoon (spending another 5 days in another island afterwards) and it was like nowhere else we'd ever been. We felt like we were alone on the island at times, which was total bliss. There were only a dozen or so other couples staying at the same time as us, which made our stay even more relaxing and serene (this may have been because it was down season, it was May and the monsoon season was ongoing). We took a speed boat from Male and we were giving "no shoes, no news" canvas bags for our shoes before we arrived - part of the island's ethos, which was a pretty unique concept. I loved being barefoot for the duration of the stay.
Despite the tropical storms, this didn't dampen our experience. We stayed in an over water villa and were extremely well looked after by Mamdooh - our personal butler, who was always trying to make sure we were having a great stay (in spite of the unpredictable rain).
We would wake up and could snorkel right outside the back of our villa, with the open water ahead of us. We felt totally private. We had a lovely spa experience too, as part of our honeymoon treat, as well as a dolphin cruise where we saw lots of swimmer dolphins. The food was incredible, both at breakfast and dinner at the main restaurant, and also at the special Japanese restaurant.
There may not have been tons of activities (there was pool and tennis and watersports, but the latter weren't operational because of the weather), but the place is so gorgeous that you can spend your days soaking it all in without getting bored - especially what you need on a honeymoon after tiring wedding preparations etc.
If you are after total relaxation, privacy and luxurious bliss, Gili is the place to be!
We appreciate you taking the time to share this complimentary review of your experience at Gili Lankanfushi.
Congratulations again for your wedding and thank you for choosing to start your honeymoon at our little sanctuary.
At Gili Lankanfushi we offer our guests the freedom to define luxury; we are very happy to know that you have enjoyed being barefoot throughout your stay and valued the privacy and relaxation ingredients of your stay.
We continuously strive to improve our services and we are absolutely delighted to know that you have enjoyed the spa, snorkeling, dolphin cruise, the food and the Mr. Friday (Butler) services. I will personally pass your kind words to Mamdooh.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any assistance,

Dear Alya Bin G,
Thank you for sharing your recent Girls trip to Gili Lankanfushi through this TripAdvisor review.
It was a pleasure to welcome you again and meet you and your family members. We are so pleased to know that the team was able to offer you a magical experience.
It is always humbling to know that our hosts were like family; I will personally share your complimentary feedback to our team and more specifically to Yasir, Afif and Hari.
Gili Lankanfushi is a place where you arrive as a guest, leave as a friend, and return as family. We look forward to welcome you back soon.
In the meantime I stay at your disposal for any assistance needed.
Just outstanding, could not have been a better trip. Our Mrs Friday (Nana) was on top of everything. Nana, Nicolas and David were always welcoming, attentive and willing to ensure everything was perfect.
On behalf of David and the entire team, we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at Gili Lankanfushi through this TripAdvisor review.
It was a great pleasure to meet you and host you in our sanctuary. Nana thanks you for your kind words and sends you her regards.
We hope to welcome you again after your move to your new destination.
Went again to this paradise island and still perfect. This time I took my youngest daughter and her young family. They had obviously heard about it from me and her older sister, who has also been there a couple of times with her family, but was amazed by the island, villas and especially the staff who cannot do enough for you. We had Fiyaz as our Mr Friday (who has looked after our family on all our visits) he even postponed his holiday to be with us. He is amazing. Also a mention for the dive school and marine biologists who looked after us in the water. A special mention to Jude who took my two granddaughters (11 and 10) on their first scuba dive and I am sure has started them off on a lifetime of diving. Another special person is Nazeef who once again dragged me around on a dive with a smile. All the staff on the island need a special mention, the restaurant staff, the bar staff, the kitchen staff and all the ones who keep the island running so smoothly but obviously can’t all be mentioned by name.
thank you all again for a perfect holiday. We will be back.
Thank you for taking the time in writing your TripAdvisor review.
Once again, thank you for making the trip and returning to Gili Lankanfushi. It was very nice to have your family on the resort again and I know that Fiyaz really enjoyed meeting the rest of your family. I especially enjoyed visiting with you all and the many good stories from Jerry.
We're all so pleased to read your review and know that you had a perfect holiday and that you will be back. Thank you for mentioning Jude and Nazeef from Ocean Paradise - they enjoyed guiding you and the grand kids around the reefs.
We all remain on hand to welcome you back again and again - please let me know if I may assist in any way in the plans for your return.
Yet another magical holiday in our favourite Maldivian resort! The staff never cease to amaze me with their friendliness and never ending unobtrusive efforts to please! This time we presented them with a very wide range of likes and dislikes and they coped admirably! I wish I could remember all their names as they did ours, and thank them all. Our Mr Friday, Fiyaz, once again managed our holiday to perfection. This praise obviously goes to the Dive centre with Harvey Jude and Nazeef, and Claire and Emma from the Marine Biological Centre. All,yes all, the bar and dining staff, it was hard to find fault anywhere as usual! The new GM David and good old Tom, waved their magical wands to great effect. Thanks Gili once again
