Great Location

Jan 16th, 2020

This is a beautiful relaxing place to stay. The Water Villas are delightful. Apart from the sheer beauty of the location what really scores top marks is the staff. Our villa host Latheef was excellent. All the staff were first class, but a special mention should go to Sureshi, Vell and Alini, who were in the restaurants..The GM (Clency) assisted by Ulrike were always on hand to ensure everything was running like clockwork. Highly recommended. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Dreamy Honeymoon - Perfect Island

Jan 14th, 2020

We spent our Honeymoon on Kanuhura. Our journey began upon arrival at Male airport. Once we arrived a very friendly representative was already waiting for us. He accompanied us to the water plane check-in area and helped us with our luggage. After the check-in procedure we were picked up with a beautiful car and brought to their airport lounge. The nice smell in the car and the beautiful pillows were the first touch of luxury we got from Kanuhura! The lounge had a very comfortable waiting area too, alongside a nice selection of refreshments. After a short flight of 45min we arrived on Kanuhura. The welcome was traditional and friendly. We were offered a fresh pressed juice along with a warm welcome from the General Manager Clency and our Host Naif (who then went on to show us the island in a golf buggy before arriving at our beach villa). The villas are very modern and beautiful. We had a wonderful view from our terrace. The bedsheets are made of linen and the bed is firm but comfortable – just the way we like it. The walk-in wardrobe is a highlight, we loved it together with the outdoor shower/bathroom. All in all, we were very happy with our villa! The island is idyllic and much like you would imagine the Maldives to be, white sand and turquoise waters, it is simply beautiful. The Kanahura team amplify the experience with their island offerings, split into sections below. Food: The restaurants on Kanuhura are serving very high-quality food. At times rivalling Michelin star-restaurants, both in cuisine and service. We loved the “Veli” (Asian fusion) restaurant at the beach front enjoying the very tasty Angus beef as well as the freshly made sushi, curries and scrumptious deserts. Vijay the head chef was very attentive, friendly and professional. He welcomed every guest personally and asked if they were satisfied with the food, he even catered to our specific tastes with uniquely marinated tandoori dishes! Simply wonderful (thank you Vijay & team for the effort!). The “Bottega” restaurant (Italian) is serving excellent pasta and pizza as well as an extensive fish selection which is also very nice. The absolute highlight was on one particular evening when the staff surprised us with a special romantic meal in celebration of our wedding, Aroon was serving us and did an excellent job throughout! (thank you Aroon for a great experience and a special thanks to Mahesh and Sam for thinking of us and helping arrange! We still have the champagne cork at our home as a lovely memory!). The buffet restaurant “A Mano” is where you can enjoy breakfast and dinner. The team offers a wide variety of themed evenings, our favourite was the “Fisherman’s catch” as it has an awesome selection, in particular the langoustines! Breakfast is sensational, you literally could not ask for anything more, it’s the perfect way to start the day! ..especially with Moosa Hill as your server, his cheeky and attentive charm brightened our mornings – a nice touch is the holiday newspapers, you can catch up on the news back home in a relaxing fashion. The team, lead by Vel are all fantastic! From the warm welcome upon arrival until leaving with your belly full, you feel like a valued guest! Drinks: The “IRU Bar” (sunset bar) at the beach was one of our favourites. We loved having our Gin Tonics & other expertly made cocktails before dinner alongside the romantic sunset, the lighting is very pleasant as the sun sets making it all the more romantic! Now for the “Cowry Bar” (Poolside bar) we must say this bar was our favourite spot. The cocktails are very delicious (try a “Lamborghini!”) all served very professionally and the waiters are excellent! Our main waiter Ismail was one of the best waiters we have experienced on all of our travels (and we have been to some luxury resorts), he was polite, attentive, non-intrusive but offered up interesting conversations when the moment was right, not to mention remembered the drinks we liked! We were very happy to have been served by him. Additionally, the rest of the Cowry bar crew including Renesh, Raja, Ajith, Rukshan (with his impressive German skills!), Ken (thanks for the delicious mangoes!) and of course Humaidh (for our great chats on Netflix series!) and so many more! They are a fantastic team! Making for such a friendly and fun environment whilst being extremely professional at the same time. A special thanks goes to Sam the beverage manager, he has a wealth of experience and that really shows in the way he manages the bar atmosphere and team, he is a consummate professional and we really enjoyed our discussions with him, not only that but he is a fantastic cocktail maker (be sure to ask him for a lesson!) we have a new favourite in Sweet Lips and Lamborghini! A big thank you to Sam! Accommodation: It was faultless, impeccably clean each and every day with an excellent turndown service. Additionally, one evening we had a big surprise, whilst we were having dinner it was decorated with flowers and heart-shaped balloons, even the bath tub was prepared beautifully. We were amazed by the level of effort made by Naif and his colleagues in making our stay extra special. Island Staff: A special thanks to the gardening staff, we really could tell the time and effort put into the islands beautiful displays, the weather was changeable during our stay but the team did not let the rain affect the layout of the pathways or the attention to detail when it came to the flowers. We were really impressed at just how well they looked after everything! A big well done! Snorkeling: The lifeguard team are very friendly and were extremely helpful in giving us the best spots for snorkelling off the islands (all three islands), be sure to ask them! We saw sharks, octopus, Morane eels, sting rays, eagle rays and even turtles! You just need to know the spots. Be sure to have your gopro charged and ready! Overall: There is so much more we could compliment the Kanahura team on, it is a fantastic island! Overall it was a magical experience and we couldn’t have picked anywhere better to spend our honeymoon. A big thank you to Clency and the team for making our stay incredible, we really appreciate all of your efforts! We hope we are fortunate enough to visit again! (and soon!) TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We enjoyed the Resort for the fourth time. It was a perfect stay. Really good service. Dedicated people. Large and beautiful island. Amazing new years party with cool DJ at the beach. There is a reason why you meet so many repeaters here. We will come back this year! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
