The Inside Mail on Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives

by Tropicsurf Blog November 22, 2018

TS GUIDE DAVE LAMMIN

Leave your shoes in the bag provided and spend your week barefoot. Gili Lankanfushi is rustic chic at its best.

Eat at the Asian Street Market dinner under beautiful palms. The live stations feature chefs from all over Asia preparing their favourites. Afterwards, stop at the chocolate cave for delicious choccies, truffles and cheeses.

Best place to catch the sunset is definitely on a dhoni sailboat (4m long and very traditional) with a glass of cold champagne.

The Private Reserve is a family paradise. Kids love the aquatic playground with water slide into the lagoon. Sunrise rooms have views of waves breaking on the reef. This is the ultimate set-up for a party! There are so many different spaces - from a cinema to private spa - everything is here.

Head underground to the wine cellar for wine & house-made chocolate tasting. Or book the cellar dinner with the resort’s sommelier.

Walk the organic garden with the chef and pick your favourite fresh greens. Have them prepared the way you like before dining at the garden-side 360 table under the stars.

Curl up in your private Robinson Crusoe residence reading the in-room copy of Daniel Defoe’s finest story-telling.

It was perhaps the most honest public statement ever made by a professional athlete and came off the back of what was arguably the greatest moment in pro surfing history. Just five days shy of his 50th birthday, Slater dominated youthful vertebra and notorious specialists with a masterclass display of brilliance.

For surfers especially, travel is often in the blood. Most of us aren’t blessed with tropical, uncrowded waves on our doorstep and so we dream of a time and a place where this can become the ‘new normal’, if only for a week or so. But for our Tropicsurf guides who call these palm fringed beaches and turquoise line ups home, we can’t help but wonder what their surf travel dreams look like.
