10/10 Exceptional

Gili Lankanfushi is a simple yet very elegant resort. It is in perfect harmony with the surroundings. All the villas are built over the water and they are not your regular bungalows. They are beautiful, spacious apartments that have the most stunning views I have ever seen. No detail has been overlooked when it comes to the interior design of the villa that I stayed in (#10). It is open, breezy, quiet, very clean. I had the best sleep of my life. I came for a short vacation for a much need it recovery time and I left completely rejuvenated: body, mind and soul. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you see when you open your eyes is the most beautiful turquoise waters all around you. The dinning on this island was above and beyond my expectations. One cannot use adjectives like "good" or "delicious" to describe it because it will not do any justice. The flavors, textures, overall presentation all invite you to slow down and savor every bite you take. After each dining experience, I was left with a sense of complete happiness and satisfaction. The “Over the water” sushi restaurant is an experience out of this world. You can tell that the chef, Hari, is not just talented but also passionate and creative about this work with a key eye to details. This came through in every dish he prepared for me. The island is filled with lush vegetation and there's an overall sense of tranquility. It is like a forgotten piece of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

4/10 Fair

If you plan on staying at this hotel, DONT. They will nickel and dime you on absolutely everything. You need a COVID test in order to leave? $300. They are absolutely ridiculous. The staff practically harasses you to go to their special themed dinners but once you go, you get the bill at the end as $320 for 2 people. They are complete scammers. The staff is very nice to the point that you feel bad complaining but they are scammers just as much as the hotel itself. They do not disclose pricing to the customer until the final bill comes. Although the hotel room was nice and has a nice view, don’t expect it to be private AT ALL. Both fishing boats and resort tourist boats drive by and park directly in front of the room 24/7. The shower is outdoors so prepare to have to duck every time a boat goes by. Did I mention it’s directly next to a fish factory? The bathroom is completely open, the shower is outside and the bathtub and bathroom are in front of see through windows, any boat that drives by can see you. At many instances it was really uncomfortable.

Amazing resort that goes above and beyond to make your stay unforgettable. Gorgeous villas, beautiful lagoon, amazingly nice staff. Beautiful beaches with post-card appearances. Convenient location near airport while far enough not to be overwhelmed by the sound of airplanes. Delicious food. Personalized butler services by "Mr Friday" greatly appreciated.
