When you think about the Maldives you think about turquoise water, thatched huts floating above the Indian Ocean and relaxing spa treatments. It’s become a location synonymous with luxury travel. So it’s no surprise that private hideaway Kanuhura fits right in.
Guests arrive Kanuhura via private seaplane. After touching down over the crystal-clear waters of the Kanuhura private lagoon, guests will be welcomed by hotel staff on the 200 meter long jetty then accompanied to the five-star hotel. Kanuhura was built with natural materials in harmony with the environment yet offers guests all the comforts available.
The all-villa resort’s accommodations are located either on the coral sand fringe of the island or perched on stilts above the water. Beach villas offer wooden terraces leading to loungers shaded by umbrellas. Water villas have staircases directly into the lagoon. All include private verandas, outdoor showers, semi-outdoor bathtubs, air conditioning, fans, televisions, broadband Internet, stereo system and mini bar. In addition, each villa has a dedicated private host on-call and ready to handle any special requests day or night.
Kanuhura offers a variety of restaurants and bars including nightly international buffets that offer everything from Maldivian, Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, Italian, and Continental European. Lava Lounge is available as a private movie theatre complete with popcorn or as a conference and meeting room.
When it comes to day activities, Kanuhura won’t disappoint. Some of the world’s best diving sites are nearby. An outer coral reef drops down nearly 2,000 meters. Kanuhura also offers world-class spa treatments, a kids’ club and a range of outdoor activities. For additional privacy and romance, guests can schedule ‘in-villa’ dining in their actual rooms or various locations on the island.
