Gili Lankanfushi Reopens Their Doors After An Inspired Renovation.
Gili Lankanfushi is now back on track after months of renovation after a tragic fire back in January 2019, bringing back the famed eco-friendly resort with new twists and turns.
The resort combines their famed laid-back hospitality features and rustic chic aesthetic, well respecting the sustainability which the resort is famed for. For barefoot luxury travelers Gili Lankanfushi is a haven to experience leisure and scenery of the Maldivian beauty, the resort also unveiled a new concept design and wellness programs to take it to a level high. Originally opened in 2012, Gili Lankanfushi was previously voted ‘Best Hotel in the World’ by TripAdvisor for its uniquely laidback air and impeccable service ethic.
The new design uses a warm, neutral color palette perfectly balancing the island’s natural surroundings for a calming effect, whilst locally sourced turquoise fabrics add flashes of colour to the new design.
The island revolves around sustainability, and every piece of furniture in the new villas and living areas has been custom made by skilled craftsman using upcycled materials. Recycled teakwood bedframes, and lampshades handwoven with recycled wire mesh twist to feature fish and sea turtles from the surrounding sea.
The coffee tables have been engraved with stars to reflect the clear night sky and hanging lamps crafted from bamboo prawn catcher baskets. Rooftop daybeds have been made up with luxurious linens so guests have the option of an atmospheric night sleep beneath the stars, and cushion fabrics custom print with coral patterns found on the reefs below.
Each villa has a dedicated butler service catering to guests’ every wish.
A paradise for enriching spa sessions at the serene Meera Spa and educational exploration with the team of deeply knowledgeable experts at the Marine Biology Shack, Gili Lankanfushi marks the reopening of resort with a series of new educational and active wellness programmes that combine the two.
Holistic Healing is a five-night programme for those seeking a soulful spa experience that nurtures the body and teaches natural beauty methods including: a one-on-one consultation on arrival, daily yoga classes, guided breath-work sessions, bespoke treatments and an essential oil making workshop to create remedies to take home.
