Gili Lankanfushi (formerly Soneva Gili)

Only the mermaids get closer to the water than guests who choose to stay at the jaw dropping, magnificent Gili Lankanfushi (formerly Soneva Gili) - the Maldives first all water luxury villa holiday resort.

There's more than a hint of 007 as you arrive by seaplane at this fantastic place.

Once your seaplane lands, the resort's private luxury sailboat comes out to collect you. On board you'll be handed a small cloth bag, where you'll say goodbye to your shoes for the duration of your holiday stay. So what happens when you arrive at the jetty with no shoes?

Well you will find staff standing either side of the jetty ladling cooling seawater from giant urns so it is not too hot to walk on!! This is a typical touch in a resort renowned for friendly, attentive staff, who make arriving guests feel like returning friends.

Each of the thatched luxury villas are pure indulgence and opulence as they are equipped with a king sized bed, large open sided bathrooms with an open air shower and the piece de resistance; - portholes set into the floor to allow you to treat yourself to stunning views of the aquatic life below!

Step outside onto your own private deck complete with sun loungers ideal for sun worshipping or star gazing - whichever you choose during this holiday, you'll be stunned by the peace and tranquillity of your vista. And don't worry about the neighbours - the luxury villas have been carefully designed to afford absolute privacy for you and yours.

But if you're wanting the ultimate, then the Private Reserve may just be what you're looking for.

Your truly luxurious two storey villa is situated away from the main resort boasts two master suites with floor to ceiling windows on three sides, affording a 270 degree view of the iridescent Indian Ocean.

Step outside into the coral pool to the gentle rhythm of soothing music and be attended to by the resident staff who are on hand to service your every need. And if that's not enough, you just might have the pleasure of some unexpected visitors as the naturally inquisitive dolphins may pop round to say hello.

Enjoy wonderful snorkelling and diving in and around the coral reef which encircles Soneva Gili and back on dry land activities include badminton, volleyball and tennis.

After the day's exertions, you can ease weary muscles in the resorts' Six Senses Spa with a choice of massage, followed by cocktails and some of the finest seafood dining on the beach under the stars.
