Fantastic stay
Reviewed 4 days ago

First time in Maldives. Beautiful intimate resort about 40 minutes from Male by sea plane, excellent food and great service. Snorkelling really good right from the beach, didn't try the diving. Lots of other things to do including the spa and tennis court and even cinema on the beach in the evening. So many of the staff to thank for a memorable stay, cant think of any negatives. Will be back.

A wonderful moment

We used it with our family. There were also small children, but all the staff were friendly. The scenery from the water villa is a lifetime treasure.The food was also delicious. Dinner can choose 3 restaurants. None were great food and staff. If you go to Maldives, I will use KANUHURA.

A absolutely amazing place, everything is top class. Staff is fantastic, houses, food, and all the service around is highest class. Will go here again.

Everything with this island is really really good. We recommend you to try the evening fishing tours.

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Male the folks at Kanuhura took care of us. The island itself is spectacular. The villas and amenities superb, the food was fantastic, from the buffet to the restaurants it was consistently tasty, but it was the care and attention of the staff at the resort that needs to be commended. Although everyone was great, I'd like to make a special shout out to the following folks;
Frank (big smile)
Chef Michele
Worth this rating for sure!

Absolutely Amazing - for the second time round
Reviewed 1 week ago

We, my mum, kids and I, have just enjoyed 14 nights in an Over Water Villa. We have fallen in love with this resort back in March and we decided to come back.
Everything was perfect (as expected), very quiet & relaxing.

The villa had a large shaded front deck overlooking the lagoon with no neighbours in front, a ladder into the lagoon and plenty of fishes swimming around (baby sharks and sting rays too).We enjoyed a clear view across the lagoon on to the beach.Coral reefs are note so close to the villas (which is good especially if you have young kids as I do) but you can see the fishes from your deck anyway!

The weather was hot & almost perfect every day, got rained on once whilst landing the day we arrived in Male!

We ate at all the restaurants and bar, all highly recommended. The buffet restaurant offers different "themes" every nights - recommended for food lovers and curious eaters (two nights a week it's possible to have dinner in the garden as the culinary staff prepare a Butcher bbq and Fisherman bbq...absolute do die for). There is a super delicious Italian Restaurant - I would say very authentic -, a romantic restaurant facing the lagoon called Veli, where you can enjoy yummy sushi rolls and tandoori prawns and chicken. For an easy lunch or drink - between a sun bath and a diving session - you can pass by at Cowry and try a club sandwich or a mouthwatering salad..or just a fresh fruit juice.
Once a week the staff organise a wonderful cocktail in Iru Beach where the guests can mingle together admiring a breathtaking sunset.

If you travel with kids I recommend the Kids Club once again...the staff take good care of kids (any age) and parents can relax and enjoy the sun!

The staff are an absolute delight, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left every staff member we met was so friendly and welcoming, they are truly a credit to Kanuhura. Staff are fluent in English but best of all are helpful and do their best to meet special need or requests - especially when you have kids. Laundry and housekeeping thanks for all your efforts and patience!

Last but not least...you have to try the spa! Smiling, friendly and very professional therapist will guide you through a 5 senses journey you won't believe!

I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Thank you again to the staff and keep going...you are doing great!
