Kanuhura Maldives, a Leading Hotel of the World

A Leading Hotel of the World on a private island

Kanuhura Maldives, a Leading Hotel of the World

$ 4,053 $ 3,530 from, per person

Part of The Leading Hotels of the World! Located on a private island in eastern Lhaviyani Atoll, Kanuhura Maldives offers a luxurious retreat with a beautiful outdoor pool and an on-site water sports centre. One of the Maldives’ more natural islands, Kanuhura blends rustic elegance with laid-back luxury living.

This large yet intimate-feeling island, located in the lovely quiet Lhaviyani Atoll, is a laid-back palm-painted idyll, with a fabulous range of facilities, tip-top dining and perfect beaches. It’s ideal for families, couples and solo travellers.

Kanuhura is home to 80 villas, tastefully furnished with sophistication and a modern touch. Featuring a bounty of natural materials, the villas are complemented by a private wooden deck stretching to the beach or over the lagoon.

There’s no house reef here but the island has access to some of the atoll’s most spectacular underwater sites. With most reachable by boat, we recommend heading to the Maa Giri and Kanuhura Corner reefs – incredible spots which teem with turtles, rays and grey reef sharks.

Villas are beachside or overwater, on either the sunrise or sunset side of the island. Soft colour schemes and natural materials blend perfectly with the island’s unspoilt environment.

 

Destinations: 7 nights Maldives

Kanuhura is home to 80 villas, tastefully furnished with sophistication and a modern touch. Featuring a bounty of natural materials, the villas are complemented by a private wooden deck stretching to the beach or over the lagoon.

Villas are beachside or overwater, on either the sunrise or sunset side of the island. Soft colour schemes and natural materials blend perfectly with the island’s unspoilt environment. There are a number of room styles to choose from, including the comfortable Beach Villas that have a partial open-air bathroom and private terrace, and the Water Pool Villas that indulge with a private plunge pool. Staying in a Retreat Beach Pool Villa and above includes extra benefits like a dhoni sunset cruise and a picnic on Masleggihura island.

All rooms are big and bright with a sunny Californian vibe – whitewashed woods, geometric prints, some with flashes of coral, others with splashes of turquoise and teal – as well as zen-cool outdoor bathrooms and wooden decks rolling straight onto the sand or into the sea. Other pleasing touches include free movies, eco-friendly pump-bottle toiletries and complimentary bicycles.

Who says the Maldives are boring? Kanuhura has enough activities to keep you busy for weeks on end, from daily complimentary classes including yoga, pilates, stretching and Maldivian warrior training (humphing logs and throwing coconuts on the beach) to snorkelling, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding (again, all free). There are also tennis courts, volleyball nets and a football pitch, where fun-packed staff-versus-guests matches take place.
