Capital Travel Team visits Gili Lankanfushi

On 19th January 2020, the team of Capital Travel and Tours visited the 5 Star Luxury Resort Gili Lankanfushi for the first time after their reopening on December 2019 with a grandiose design concept.

Here is what the team had to say about the new interiors.

The warm, neutral colour palette of the island was inspired by the island’s natural surroundings and created a calming effect, whilst locally sourced turquoise fabrics added flashes of color to the new design.

Sustainability was at the heart of the island’s vision, and every piece of furniture in the new villas and living areas were custom made by skilled craftsman using up cycled materials. The bed frames were made from recycled teakwood, and lampshades hand-woven with recycled wire mesh twist to feature fish and sea turtles from the surrounding sea.

The coffee tables were engraved with stars to reflect the clear night sky and hanging lamps crafted from bamboo prawn catcher baskets. Rooftop daybeds were made up with luxurious linens so guests have the option of an atmospheric night sleep beneath the stars, and cushion fabrics custom print with coral patterns found on the reefs below.

Each villa had a dedicated butler service catering to guests’ every wish.

Highlights of new guest experiences include, Holistic Healing, Dive & Discover and Surf & Spa.

Holistic Healing is a five-night program for those seeking a soulful spa experience that nurtures the body and teaches natural beauty methods including: a one-on-one consultation on arrival, daily yoga classes, guided breath-work sessions, bespoke treatments and an essential oil making workshop to create remedies to take home.

Dive & Discover is a five-night program for budding divers with a passion for marine conservation including: daily diving expeditions, guided night time snorkelling, a coral planting experience with a marine biologist to support The Coral Lines Project and a deep muscle massage to rejuvenate at the spa.

Surf & Spa is a four-night program for the eco-conscious sportsman in search of active exploration: days will start with sunrise yoga followed by surf lessons on the lagoon and guided tours to nearby wake break where guests can be accompanied by a resident marine biologist to learn about local marine life.

After days of exploring and relaxation, guests enjoy fresh and sustainably sourced dishes at Kashiveli where the surrounding waters form the basis of the resort’s modern Maldivian fusion cuisine served from new live cooking stations.

Executive Chef Hari Govindaraj is responsible for growing organic herbs, vegetables and fruits in the organic Gili garden and will offer guests one-on-one classes to learn the art of cooking with seasonal produce, providing hand-written recipes for guests to take home as a memory of their stay.
