The island itself is large by Maldivian standards.

The 150 villas and suites then expand in one file along the entire length of the beach, have direct access to water and offer excellent privacy with shady verandas linking directly to a wide strip of soft white sand. Of course, if you find yourself at the far end of the island, it's a pretty long walk to the main restaurant and bar, but the hotel provides electric shuttle service that continuously cruise back and forth along the sandy paths along the entire length of the island. There are no stops, just give up. DOWNLOAD RESORT MAP

Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives – A Premium All-Inclusive Resort

In December 2019 Atmosphere Kanifushi has unveiled 40 brand-new overwater villas, further cementing its position as a leading five-star Maldivian resort, offering the discerning traveller the ultimate in luxury accommodation.

Set on the northwest lagoon of Kanifushi island, the overwater villas are set across two wooden walkways, interconnecting in the middle. The result is a stylish cross-over formation and provides the perfect place for guests to stroll along and enjoy the waves and beaches nearby.

Perfect for those after a unique villa experience and the chance to be close to the ocean, now there are two overwater villa options available to guests; 12 facing the main island for the best sunrise views, and 28 sunset view villas with private pool.

Positioned over a stunning turquoise lagoon, the new overwater villas offer both an elegant retreat and a unique experience. Guests can spot marine wildlife including reef sharks passing by from the privacy of their villa decks, and enjoy uninterrupted views of the ocean.

The interior design of the new villas has been carefully selected to complement the island surroundings, with accents of blue and tropical colours, along with Maldivian style soft furnishings and intricate wall art. The large bathroom is a spacious haven and glass-panes built into the floor allow guests to gaze upon the ocean below without leaving their villa.

Villas are equipped with all mod-cons and direct access to the water means guests can take a dip into the lagoon from their own private wooden sundeck. Twenty-four-hour butler service ensures guests’ needs are always met – from making restaurant reservations, to arranging snorkelling excursions and booking spa treatments.

Restaurants and Bars

Expect the amazing gastronomic adventures in Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives: food is diverse, delicious and quality. Especially impressive drinks. Prosecco can be served in a glass, and the cocktails are properly mixed and - making every effort to drink on the list, I can confirm - this is a good enough collection to decorate any high-quality bar. The wine comes to the table with a bottle, and despite the fact that some of the selected options may not be available, a long list of wines from the new and old world means that there will always be something that the guests will like.

The Spice is the main buffet restaurant, that inevitably feels a little less luxurious without waiters. However, the staff is always at hand to offer water and wine, and there is a great variety, so you will not feel as if you eat the same every day. In the center of attention is the culinary theater of live stations and a grill. Take tables in the front row, watching the game of talented chefs, inspired by tastes from around the world. Try some Maldivian curry, and fresh tuna is as good, lick your fingers. Many prefer grilling, where you will find seafood, steaks and hamburgers, but a live pasta and pizza station is very popular among families, as even the most picky child can get enough of spaghetti with any sauce. The glazed dining room also has regular themed evenings, from Far East dishes to local, Maldivian fare. The resort's main restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a menu of drinks, including beer, wine and premium spirits according to the Platinum Plus All-Inclusive plan.

Cool and trendy, The Liquid is the main bar near the large 50 meter swimming pool overlooking the vast deep blue sea beyond and children's pool on the east side of the island. The bar offers a variety of premium alcohol, a wide range of wines from around the world, and exotic refreshing cocktails. This place is also home to DJ Night discos, live stage performances and themed nights. An assortment of snacks and canapés is available throughout the day and in the evenings. Here everything, from club sandwiches and hamburgers to spicy Asian salads and freshly cooked grilled fish. In our opinion, the most favored location on the island, to unwind, absorb & embrace the stress-free Maldivian environment!

A brand-new overwater restaurant, “Pier Six,” is est on the new overwater peninsula, offering guests a range of cuisines, including an array of seafood and Japanese Teppanyaki grill options. “Pier Six” has been designed in the shape of a native Manta Ray, and features high ceilings and blue marble walls, with indoor and outdoor seating to accommodate up to 60 guests.

Atmosphere Kanifushi is also home to the first vegetarian restaurant in the Maldives, aptly named 'Just Veg', offering exquisite vegetarian food, including recipes for strict vegetarians and vegans, all of which can be enjoyed in a beautiful setting with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Menu items range from Mediterranean, Arabic, Indian (including Jain Cuisine) to strict vegetarian dishes. Open for Lunch & Dinner as a part of the Platinum Plus All-Inclusive Plan. JUST VEG redefines contemporary non-meat cuisine by experimenting with original and surprising flavor combinations. It aims to elevate 100% meat-free cookery to a new high, which will delight the discerning palates of all tastes, whether it is a devout vegetarian or a committed carnivore!

One of the best Maldives resort for vegetarians Kanifushi has recently opened the Lantern Bar, an extension to the award-winning restaurant, Just Veg. READ MORE

The colorful richness of raw ingredients is appetizingly transformed into Japanese delicacies before visitors to Teppanyaki Grill restaurant. For genuine experience, guests here sit at long tables where a theatrical chef whirl, twirl, juggle, flip & flame raw ingredients into a delectable dinner, and share an East Asian feast with cooled or hot sake - a legitimate necessity. Delectable set menus offer outstanding value; where diners can choose from a range of fresh meat or seafood along with soup, rice and vegetable preparations. Chilled or hot sake is a must on the side!

All guests can eat once a week at The Sunset à la carte restaurant, which serves Asian and Indian fusion dishes - a pleasant break from the buffet meal. Sand under your feet, a spacious bar, a full chill out, and an adult pool overlooking the sunset. The Sunset reflects the ideal atmosphere of romance over the Maldivian horizon. On the theme of eating; during lunch they offer light snacks and in the evening turns into a specialized restaurant serving the best of Asian & Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of exotic grilled meats.

Villas have water, tea and coffee and a complimentary mini bar is filled twice a day with soft drinks, beer and wine, as well as snacks, very pleasant little things.
