Ultimately Faultless

We have just returned from Kanuhura and can only add to the very positive reviews given by (almost) everyone else. Any minor niggle was resolved between reporting it and before we returned to our villa - as if by magic! ( just a failed lightbulb and an ill fitting door catch). This was undoubtedly down to our Villa Host, Cassie who had a great ability to get things done.
Other thanks to ALL staff many of whom work unseen - but those out front like all the restaurant staff were particularly helpful in the well managed restaurants.
A special thank you to Jimmy who stretched our bodies to limits we did not know existed in his daily yoga sessions.
The Dive team were also great and we enjoyed a well organised snorkelling trip seeing loads of dolphins and quite a reasonable array of tropical fish.
Food choice was great for every meal - maybe the breakfast choice doesn't change as some people have commented - but hey - if you can't be satisfied with a choice of several hundred items every day from sushi, through curry to some of the best porridge I have tasted outside of Scotland, designer omelettes, dozens of fruits, pastries, hot and cold meats, then the fault doesn't lie with the provider!
Thanks for a great holiday.

We absolutely looooved this island.
I have been before on Rheeti beach, sun island, paradise island and kuredo but this island is much more luxurious and the food is impeccable. The quality of staff, rooms and service is the best i have ever experienced (and we travel a lot around the world). We stayed for a few days in a beach villa with private pool and then also moved to the water villa to experience this part. Both suites are absolutely beautiful. If you have the money go for the water villa, its more spacious and has hammicks.

A special thanks to our villa host, cassie, the diving center (Amin) and all the chefs !

PS The coconut sorbet is fantastic :) try it

Kanuhura – A true paradise!

We were warmly greeted by the General Manager and his team. Our host Arshad did a wonderful job throughout our stay and accommodated all our wishes.The employee welcoming the guests at Male airport (sorry not to remember his name) was very kind.

Rooms: The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. We had a villa sunset facing. We had some visitors in our room (spider, geckos, etc.) but this is something not even housekeeping could assist as this is nature.

Resort activities: The gym is small but great. We did 3 dives at the Sun Dive Center. Our dive guide Svenja did a very great job. The experiences underwater were awesome: reef sharks, turtles, napoleon fish, etc. Though we visited the Kanuhura during low season, we had the chance to enjoy a sunset cruise and were overwhelmed – we saw countless dolphins - a great experience. Saed and Mönir on the boat, did such a good job, highly appreciated. An idea for improvement would be a daily overview of activities (both FOC and non-FOC) visible at the breakfast so that guests know what happens at this day.

Restaurants – F&B: We experienced all restaurants and were not disappointed. Veli and Bottega were our favourites. The buffet restaurant was great, especially the Jaafai night was a great opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine. Wabbe and Ram, both from the service team are very courteous. The only negative point in regards to food is the variation of dishes for breakfast – we had the same offer almost throughout our 10 days stay.
