Kanuhura, a precious island languidly set on the warm Indian Ocean, in the middle of the bright atolls of the Maldives, can be described as a unique “timeless castaway chic experience” for travellers seeking laid-back island living at its best with a contemporary and stylish feel. Read Our Opinion

With its two beautiful little island neighbours, Kanuhura is a very private hideaway with a wide range of relaxation choices, bars, restaurants, activities and sports. Close by are some of the world’s best diving sites, with the outer reef dropping down nearly 1200 metres. It has a spa, an aerobics studio and gymnasium.  

Accommodation is in villas either on the island’s coral sand fringe or in a little village on stilts at the end of a wooden pier. ‘In-villa’ dining is a speciality, providing romantic dinners and special celebrations in the privacy of your villa, or various locations on the island.

This island resort features 100 well appointed Beach and Water Villas or Suites - all are fully air-conditioned, each with its own private veranda overlooking the sea. The beauty of the tropical surroundings blends perfectly with the design of the accommodation as all the Villas and Suites are built from natural materials and are equipped with tasteful high quality solid timber furniture.

AnchorOur Opinion
A luxurious island, perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway but also for an active family holiday.
Atmosphere: Lots of privacy for those seeking it but welcoming communal areas for socialising when needs be
Rooms: Beach Villas may be a bit on the small side cmpared with the other room types but are pleasantly decorated and more than enough in terms of function.
Dining: The three restaurants offer an excellent and varied dining experience - buffets, seafood, grilled meat, live cooking and Mediterranean style cuisine. It is also possible to dine at Kandu which is a short boat ride away on its own island.
Activities: The large, calm lagoon is perfect for swimming and watersports but unfortunately, this comes at the expense of a lack of house reef for snorkelling. However, there are daily guided snorkelling trips and diving excursions to shipwrecks. A great Kids Club to keep the little ones occupied.
