In October, Gili wears pink
Best Romantic Getaways in the Maldives
05 Sep, 2021
Gili Lankanfushi gives back this Pink October with a series of activities organized at the resort. We welcome the participation of both our guests and hosts, to raise awareness about breast cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women and early detection can save a life.
In support of the cause, pink mask will be worn by all female hosts and a pink ribbon will be worn by all hosts throughout the month. Pink ribbons will be provided in the Gili Cares Kit found in your villa upon check-in, as an opportunity for guests to be a part of the movement.
On Wednesdays, the Gili Family invites all attendees of the weekly management cocktail party to come with a dash of pink in your outfit for the occasion. Be sure to pack in something pink for your holiday! During this weekly event, guests will be invited to leave motivational notes to those who are diagnosed with breast cancer. The collection of these notes will be distributed to breast cancer patients around the world through various organisations, as moral support to those who survived or fighting the disease.
A little awareness goes a long way – Join us for a Breast Cancer Awareness Talk with Cancer Society of Maldives on 9th October 2021 at our Overwater Bar. Be equipped with knowledge about the impact of breast cancer through understanding of self-examination, early detection breast health education and benefits of a supportive community.
A guide to Rosé – Give your taste buds a little tease, by wandering down into our underground wine cellar for a private tasting of Rosé wine with our resident sommelier team to discover more about the oldest wine in history.
‘Splash for a Cause’ is our highlight of the month! A best dressed FUN-draiser, for the young at heart. An event where we invite guests to make a splash into the sparkling turquoise lagoon in their quirkiest outfit on 23rd October 2021. Prizes to be won and photos of the jump will be given as a token of appreciation. Time to put on your best dress! Donation of any amount is encouraged for the registration of this event. All donations will go to the Cancer Society of Maldives.
We look forward to your arrival at this little island of Robinson Crusoe and participation in these light-hearted activities as Gili Gives Back for a cause.Check Availability and Prices
About Gili Lankanfushi
Located in the North Male Atoll, Gili Lankanfushi opened in 2000 as the original over water resort Soneva Gili. In 2012 the island was acquired by HPL (Hotel Properties Limited) a Singapore based company investing in hotels, lifestyle and properties around the world. Voted number one hotel in the world by Trip Advisor in 2015, Gili Lankanfushi is an easy 20 minute speedboat transfer from Male international airport. Set in the middle of its own lagoon, guests enjoy a barefoot existence with 360 degree views of the Indian Ocean. Gili Lankanfushi’s 45 overwater villas, including the vast and secluded Private Reserve offer unrivalled privacy. The wellbeing of the planet is at the heart of the Gili Lankanfushi, with each stay contributing towards preserving the natural environment, protecting the fragile marine ecosystem and treading lightly.
Best Experience: OverWater Bungalows, Honeymoon, Beaches
Gili Lankanfushi is rated by many among the best resort in the Maldives, and with good reason. This stunning, 46-villa, eco-resort is just 20 minutes by speedboat from Male airport thriving in providing truly unpretentious, relaxed luxury. Barefoot are recommended (shoes are removed as soon as you leave the airport on the boat), and each guest is surrounded by the care of a personal butler with the title "Mr. Friday". The spacious, charmingly simple water villas are built of some types of wood and are equipped with open (and on the roof!) decks with seaviews that can evoke tears of joy. On land, a beautiful island with 683 palms offers a range of activities and an excellent dining options. This rare diamond in the Maldives is more authentic than other famous brand resorts at the same price - given the regular appearance in the Gili Lankanfushi of world celebrities. But if your own pools and air conditioning in each room are your priority, you can Read Full Review...
