Kanuhuru’s stunning location and its extensive choice of amenities and activities ensure a perfect tropical vacation in some of the best accommodation in the Maldives. Kanuhuru underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2005 and just about everything was updated. The designers however were careful to preserve the resorts original charm without sacrificing any modern convenience. The wonderful rustic villas with straw - thatched roofs blend in to the tropical surrounds perfectly and create a beautiful ambiance for a romantic getaway or a fun filled family vacation. The stunning overwater bungalows enjoy a spectacular location and have been built over the top of the crystal clear lagoon while all other rooms enjoy breathtaking views of this private island paradise.

The Kanuhuru experience begins with arrival to Male airport when a smiling Kanuhuru staff member greets guests and transfers them to a private sea plane for a 40 minute flight to the Lhaviyani atol . The transfer is itself a wonderful prelude to what’s in store for guests when they arrive at Kanuhuru. During the transfer guests will enjoy the breathtaking views of the tiny islands strung along the turquoise sea like a giant coral necklace. Upon arrival guests can expect a quick and courteous check in so that the pampering can begin immediately and no precious vacation time is wasted.
