About The Hotel

On it’s own island and overlooking one of the Maldives most beautiful beaches, this luxury hotel has thought of every last detail of a family’s needs. Set on a blue lagoon teeming with sea life, Kanuhura is a member of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World‘ and has a fair claim to be paradise on earth. Offering a “timeless castaway chic experience” for families seeking laid-back island living, the newly refurbished tropical elegant design is in harmony with the natural environment.

Kanuhura offers eight different culinary experiences including A Mano, designed with the aesthetic of local market food stalls and offering an impressive selection of pan-Asian and international cuisine, using the freshest produce and ingredients, Bottega Italian cuisine, Drift Island Grill and Veli. The Deli serves ice creams and freshly baked cakes throughout the day and Chef’s Herb Garden is set amidst a large communal table set amidst a beautiful hanging vegetable garden.

Luxury villas and suites are dotted along both the sunset and sunrise side of the world-famous Kanuhura beach and boast breath-taking views of the turquoise lagoon. Furnished with discreet sophistication, all villas feature natural materials to blend with the surroundings and have a semi-open bathroom with bathtub, separate indoor or outdoor shower, hair dryer, bathrobe, TV, telephone complimentary internet access. A private deck extends to the beach or lagoon, offering spectacular sea views. The Retreat Family Beach Pool Villas are ideal for families, with three bedrooms.
If you can tear yourself away from the unspoilt beaches, there is a fresh water swimming pool, two floodlit tennis courts and an air-conditioned squash court. A wide array of sports and leisure including excursions such as snorkeling tours, big game fishing, island hopping, private island picnics and sunset cruises, Meslagihuraa, mini football, watersports and cycling. Kokaa Wellness Retreat & Spa offers an exclusive retreat for those seeking the ultimate in pampering and relaxation.
