The Maldives—a group of islands and islets randomly scattered in the heart of the Indian Ocean—are one of the few natural places in the world that deliver utmost luxury and exclusivity.
Consisting of 1,199 formations—202 inhabited—this archipelago to the south of India is known for its pristine atolls, clear waters teeming with a great diversity of marine species, and for its placid, beautiful sand beaches. This unique setting is complemented by the excellent hospitality services.
Like a 21st-century Robinson Crusoe, in the Maldives you will find accommodations that range from a villa by the sea to a suite over the water. The visitor can also choose his or her favorite place on every island to wake to stunning sunrises, watch a glorious sunset, relax in a hammock or dive among wild but friendly marine fauna.
All these pleasures—and more—are available to travelers at one of the Maldive’s most sumptuous hotels, the Gili Lankanfushi. Built on stilts above the water, its motto is “elegance by the sea” combining both luxury and environmental protection.
The hotel is located on the island of Lankanfushi, in the heart of an immense turquoise lake, surrounded by the finest sand, and just 20 minutes by boat from Male–the capital city–International Airport.
The Gili Lankanfushi has 45 unique and amazing villas, with spacious rooms, private solariums and all the amenities needed for a spectacular holiday in the Indian Ocean.
And for those who like absolute exclusivity, there are seven Crusoe Residences located in the most beautiful places on this lush island. Each of them boast at least 2,700 square feet , anchored in the middle of the lake, with a private boat available 24 hours a day to allow guests to visit the Private Reserve, some 15,000 square feet of panoramic views and boundless luxuries, including a private spa, sauna and even a steward at your disposal.
Luxury, exclusivity and one of the most seductive and beautiful landscapes in the world come together in this fantastic place called the Maldives. ■
