The Inside Mail on Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives
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.
