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.

Best surf tip is to time your session around other resort fixed schedules. One of my favorite times is around 2.30pm when they’re taking lunch and the obligatory following nap.

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.

I’m Mike, Tropicsurf’s program manager stationed at our newest property, One&Only Mandarina. Perched amongst an unspoiled pocket of Nayarit’s tropical coastline, Mandarina leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered another world, despite being located just a stones-throw from Punta Mita. I reside at Mandarina with my fiancé Katia who hails from Mexico and together, we’re having the time of our lives as we explore this picturesque pocket of the world and everything it has to offer together.

Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew
Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew

September 16, 2020

The Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated landmasses on the planet. You feel the immensity of that isolation most clearly while bobbing in the ocean there. The cobalt Pacific’s deep-sea currents and swells detonate over Hawaii’s shallow reefs, creating explosive displays of barreling raw nature that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
