Food & Drink

Designed in a traditional style using environmentally friendly materials, Gili Lankanfushi blend into the magnificent landscape in which it sits. Combining luxury and sustainability, it is a resort that recognises that the environment is one of the greatest, most beautiful assets available and therefore needs to be respected and conserved.

The accommodation options vary greatly, but all are similar in their elegant and luxurious nature. Offering seclusion and exclusivity, the villas and residences offer the perfect indoor outdoor living experience, almost welcoming the blue lagoon inside.

Our collection of 45 rustic-chic thatched villas hover over transparent lagoon waters. Many of them are connected to wooden jetties, which thread out from our tiny island, while others stand alone in the sea.

You will find our simple, yet splendid abodes (all made from sustainable materials) to be the perfect base from which to live out any modern-day Robinson Crusoe adventure.
