While the resort’s house lagoon provides a magical setting for first-timers, some of the Maldives’ best surfing spots are just a short boat ride away, including the legendary honeymoon cove for advanced surfers. Gili Lankanfushi also offers a surf remedial massage at the resort’s Meera Spa. Guests can even enjoy yoga techniques and breathing exercises to tune their mind and posture to help catch the perfect wave.

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.
