      Paradise in the Maldives ”

      Overall: We had a perfect vacation as a family of 5 in July 2019, for 5 days. Everything exceeded our expectations. Ulli the manager does a fantastic job running the place so smoothly! Villas: We stayed in the beach villas, which led directly into the lagoon. They are very well decorated and looked after. The outdoor bathroom was a real treat! We also had a dedicated villa host (Hossam) who was available for any requests or questions. Food: We had the full board package which meant we could eat at any restaurant (a la carte). The food was fresh, varied and generous. Special mention to chef Vijay Kumar, Maazin at and Mahesh. We were there for a special BBQ night, which was a really fun party. Water activities: My husband and I did PADI open water certification with Pieter (an awesome instructor!). Would highly recommend this. We saw coral, fish, turtles and reef sharks. We did the snorkelling trip to Karedu Caves. Weather: Although it was the ‘monsoon’, it was sunny all 5 days

      Unforgettable holiday”

      This hotel treats every guest like a king. From the beginning you step your feet at Kanuhura, they welcome you gracefully. All staff is best ever!! Especially Siyad, my villa host. He will assist you for everything you need. We were a little bit worry about our tummy, because every meal was a very delicious, finger-licking, awesome meal!! I will definitely recommend this to everyone who’s searching a hotel in Maldives.

      Exquisite Location”

      Absolutely magical place, great kids club, and fun and special activities on offer. We weren’t on the same page as our butler and took on much of the planning once there to ensure what we wanted was booked when we wanted. Prices are very, very high, as is to be expected in the Maldives, but the stunning island and two other islands the property owns that we visited made this worth every penny. I’d highly recommend half or full board, too.

      Best hotel we ever experienced ”

      We spent one week in Kanuhura with our friends and our kids and we had the best holiday ever. We are all frequent travellers both privately as well business wise and being used to Asian hospitality, still can say that We never experienced such service and care likein Kanuhura. The facilities are amazing, food was great every day, staff very friendly and it were these small details and touches that made the difference. Beautiful lounge at seaplane terminal, check in lounge at the pier, welcome presents, evian refreshment spray on beach, someone cleaning your glasses at the beach, wet towels and water anytime on the beach, beautiful Christmas decoration, guests playing football with hotel team, no shoes needed entire stay as well for dinner, loved it all!

      "Unfettered Paradise"”

      My wife and I spent 6 days here on our honeymoon and it was worth every dime. The location is breathtaking and the marine life at your fingertip is like nothing else I have seen around the world. We stayed in a water villa and were frequented by schools of tropical fish, baby black tips and the occasional sting ray. The half board package served us well as it gave you breakfast and access to all restaurants for dinner. The food options are out of this world. The staff were incredible offering any ammenity needed. The resort asigns a villa host on call 24/7 to take care of all/any of your needs (thanks Mansur!). This place has it all. If you want to relax and read on the beach you can nestle in any one of the many sporadically placed lounges and beds. Use your villa assigned bicycles to explore the island or ring up your host for a golf cart pick up. We kept busy everyday between snorkeling, kayaking, boat cruises and destination meals. A true "Unfettered Paradise"

      Exceeded very high expectations”

      We went very last minute for my birthday and were constantly in awe of the attention to every detail. Our villa host, Adam ensured we had the MOST memorable time and I cannot thank him enough <3 For my birthday, he filled the day with little surprises which absolutely melted my heart. For the half board, you have 3 restaurants to chose from for dinner - Asian, Italian and buffet style which does different cuisines each night. All delicious. Water villas are exactly like the photos and beaches are pristine. We also had bikes, snorkeling and kayaking included which was all we needed really. Extras such as the spa and boat trips are pretty pricey and as we were only there for 5 days, we didn't feel we needed them. The staff really make your time there extra special and I would advise to bring cash for tips - There are no ATMs but you can add tips to restaurant staff with your bill each day. We added on an extra night whilst there as we didnt want to leave - Thank you for everything!

      Very nice hotel ,good ”

      We stayed at the water pool villa. From the airport, there was a staff standing there to welcome you, then check in the luggage and take the van to the lordge and wait for the seaplane. The waiter is very nice and friendly. When you get off the plane, there are many people who welcome you. The room is very beautiful. We don't have much overhead there, because I am taking free breakfast, dinner, dinner can be called casually, all are free, just water money, The food is good, it is worth checking out private dining, very romantic, very feel. You can take a speedboat to see dolphins, 98% can see, the sunrise is beautiful. I am very satisfied. It is worth it.

      Amazing stay in the water villa.”

      we arrived to Kanuhura for 4 night. the welcome was amazing, and we were taken to the villa by Azim - our villa host. Azim was a SUPER kind person, funny, welcoming, polite, happy and caring. the water villas are amazing. its huge with a great view (we were on the sunrise side). its a nice place for basic snorkeling, as the reef is just outside the villa. the Island itself is quite big (we came to kanuhura after staying 3 nights in Fushifaru which is a nearby Island, and it was much smaller. not that its a good or bad). the food is great, and everyone are super nice. Hussam (the Director of rooms) also was very nice and took care of our honeymoon package. we received a small nature tour from Nidal - it was very interesting to hear him speak. overall the experience was great although the water villa was a lil expensive.

      Perfect vacation on a stunning island”

      We stayed in Kanuhura for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! We booked the Water Villa for the 1st night only, but got upgraded to stay there for the rest of the stay and that villa was perfect. Breakfast and dinner at the resort were excellent, the beach and water - tranquil and amazingly beautiful! We barely saw other guests during the day although the resort looked pretty full. Resort Spa experience was excellent as well. We had our 4y old son with us and he was well taken care of from the second we landed on the island. He loved the Kids Club and spent a lot of time there giving us time to relax.

      Unforgettable Experience”

      Love the food, place and staff!

      We went to Kanuhura for a double-Honeymoon. My husband and I went along with our close friends who were also newly weds. It was our first time in Maldives and we went during Chinese New Year season. We were planning to book resorts near the airport so we wouldnt have to take a seaplane (saves money and time) but since there were few available resorts left, we booked Kanuhura. At first we were very skeptical due to the price and the additional cost for the seaplane which in fact cost more than our airfare from SG! Even before seaplane landed the resort, we were astounded by the resort view. The staff were already waiting for our arrival and they gave us a warm welcome. There were lot of fishes and stingray! It was so nice to see just beneath the reception villa! We really enjoyed our stay! We stayed at the Beach villa! It was spacious and tidy. There were lots of activities available with professional instructors like yoga, scuba diving, snorkeling etc. We tried all the restaurants in the hotel and their food were tasty! We even had tried the sandbank experience and our butler was very friendly and accommodating! All the staff were friendly, they were always checking how are we doing and if the food is nice. Catherine a fellow Filipino was very helpful! She helped us plan our activities for our entire stay and which food to try! It was a very memorable experience and we will definitely come back! :)
