Gili Lankanfushi re-opens with gorgeous new villas and suites.

You may remember that a fire broke out of one of the Maldives’ most luxurious resorts: Gili Lankanfushi, on January 2nd this year.

Thankfully, staff remained calm and professional ensuring all guests were escorted to safety and no one was injured. However, seven over-water villas were completely destroyed, and the hotel began a regeneration project.

We’re pleased to announce that the hotel is on track to re-open on the 1st December 2019 ready to host you for Christmas, New Year and beyond. And with the resort looking even more gorgeous than ever, you could be the first through the door to experience a brand new, gleaming Gili Lankanfushi.

So, what’s new with Gili Lankanfushi? The resort has been closed for 8 months to slowly and considerately renovate the whole resort and we can reveal that there are several new villa types including villa suites with pools, residences with pool and a family villa with pool.

Villa Suites are located over the clear-as-gin Indian Ocean and feature a stunning infinity pool which merges seamlessly into the landscapes of sky and sea. The Villa Suites are stylish open-air living and dining spaces, plus private nooks where Gili encourage guests to ‘practice the art of doing nothing’.

The Residence with pool offers a larger space over the ocean, and with thatched roofs and timber frames open to the sea breeze, the villa presents an air of rustic simplicity. However, the residences are dens of supreme luxury and comfort with expansive living and dining areas that have unobstructed views of the Indian Ocean, and a large swimming pool. The spacious catamaran net is the place to be to soak up the never-ending ocean panorama.

Two family villas with pools face the eastern side of the island, where you can wake up to  a spectacular sunrise each morning. Located at the end of the jetty, the family villas have a spacious  ensuite master bedroom, an ensuite guest room, a sizeable L-shaped swimming pool and a family  room. The rooftop terrace is the perfect spot for sundowners or stargazing at the clear night sky,  flickering with thousands of stars.

If you’re planning a trip to the Maldives call us to take advantage of some great opening offers we have with Gili Lankanfushi and enjoy the cachet of being first through the door of this newly renovated resort.
