From the white powdery beaches and fabulous food to the lush island greenery, Maldives is a fantastic choice for a break. In this issue, we explore the luxury retreat at Atmosphere Kanifushi, situated amidst the azure Indian Ocean waters with stand-alone beach and water villas, world class restaurants and a spa.
After an exhilarating 35-minute seaplane ride from Malé, we arrived at the pristine Kanifushi resort and were welcomed by musicians. From the moment we set foot on the island, we enjoyed impeccable service in elegant living spaces while enjoying the picture-perfect surrounding ocean, serene sunsets, walking along the island flanked by dense tropical vegetation and enjoying the boat rides which gave us glimpses of the vibrant, natural coral reefs.
This five-star resort in the Lhaviyani Atol offers an all-inclusive luxury package, an extensive range of restaurants and bars, a choice of excursions, sunset fishing, snorkelling and discounts on spa treatments and diving.
At Atmosphere Kanifushi, we enjoyed days with clear blue skies, evenings with dreamy sunsets and fiery orange skies in between a wonderful choice of meals in different types of restaurants and indulgent treatments in the spa.
Atmosphere Kanifushi has some of the best diving in the Maldives, far from the crowds with only a few other resorts in the area. The resort is five-star luxury all the way with a range of stylish villas, some designed for families with children. There is a fully equipped gym with flood-lit tennis and a children’s centre.
Dining at the Atmosphere Kanifushi was a culinary adventure with Maldives first top-quality vegetarian restaurant and a great all-day restaurant offering a sumptuous ‘all-you-can-eat’ buffet-style selection of Asian, European, and Maldivian favourites, with live cooking stations, theme nights, and grills. We also enjoyed a selection of snacks during the day and numerous a la carte fine dining experiences.
The resort offered activities that included sunset fishing, boat excursions, non-motorised water sports, diving and sailing, complimentary snorkelling equipment for every guest during the stay with excursions and much more.
The staff at Atmosphere Kanifushi indulged us with impeccable service and smiles all through our stay.
We loved the water villas that came with endless ocean views, the beach villas with space, exclusivity, a private garden with lush tropical shrubs, a private pool and being able to enjoy soft sand beneath our feet right at our doorstep.
We took a tour of the one-bedroom pool villas, the family villas with sweeping oceanfront views and two-bedroom family beach bungalows with expansive living spaces for fun family time plus easy access to the kid’s club, sports complex, and the main restaurant.
The highlight was wandering through the Kanifushi Residence, a dream family hideaway, complete with a living-cum-dining room with a pantry, an entertainment room, and two bedrooms, a master bedroom, a kid’s bedroom with twin beds and an attached nanny’s bedroom. This sprawling residence with extra privacy is ideal for large families, groups who want to share a common space, and multi-generational travellers.
Our stay at Kanifushi Maldives was full of memories created by the team who took care of every little detail, organised memorable experiences for our personal celebrations and attended to our every need as we lounged and lazed around the island, soaked in the sun and enjoyed the excursions.
Atmosphere Kanifushi offered blissful relaxation at every step of our holiday with white, sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, lush tropical gardens, exhilarating adventures, sumptuous dining experiences and, overall, a fun-filled and hassle-free tropical beach holiday experience.
