    Our opinion

    Kanuhura Beach Resort in the Maldives is a luxurious resort combining elegant informality and a wide range of leisure activities.

    Hotel description

    Kanuhura Beach Resort occupies a picturesque island in turquoise waters protected by a reef in Lhaviyani Atoll, reached by seaplane in about 40 minutes from Malé. A deluxe resort, Kanuhura combines an elegant informality with attentive service and high standards of accommodation. Skilful use of natural materials and fabrics complement the island surroundings and the design stylishly calls on the traditions of the Maldives to create a symbiosis of things Indian, Thai, Arab and Sri Lankan. The ambience at Kanuhura reflects the philosophy of the resort, combining ample places for peaceful rest and relaxation, swimming and sunbathing with numerous attractions if you want more activity, from water sports to fitness, from speedboat trips to Polynesian massage in the spa. In the evenings there is a choice of dining, with A Mano restaurant offering different culinary themes each day and featuring open cooking stations where you can see the chefs at work. There is also the Bottega restaurant serving Mediterranean dishes and the Deli café, or you can choose to dine in your villa. After dinner you might choose to enjoy a liqueur in the Cowry Club. From Kanuhura Beach Resort you can opt to explore the neighbouring islands, perhaps by visiting the fishing island of Hinnavaru where you see the mosque, school and dhoni building or by enjoying a full day’s sail by traditional dhoni combining visits to inhabited and uninhabited islands. Sunset fishing, snorkelling trips and speedboat trips are also possible. Kanuhura Beach Resort offers high-quality accommodation, service and surroundings at excellent value for money. The resort offers pure relaxation in the Maldives as well as an active holiday experience.
