We are going on honeymoon in December to the Maldives and ar struggling picking a resort. We cant decide between Kandolhu or Gili Lankanfushi. We are looking for somewhere secluded but that we can still do some activities, nice food and most importantly accommodation that is something special. Any help/experience/knowledge would be greatly appreciated!
@laurenspiersLST Dear Lauren, that is a real tough battle. Resort Ranking currently shows Gili as the 2nd best resort in Maldives while Kandolhu positions at 3rd. If you want more secluded Water Villas I would recommend Gili Lankanfushi. There is a major difference in concept. Gili Lankanfushi takes inspiration from nature, there is a lot of wooden finish in their architecture. Kandolhu is more contemporary. If you want you want better snorkeling it is Kandolhu. Note that Water Villas in Kandolhu have stairs to go down to water but you cannot access to reef because of coral in shallow water. At Gili, it is a large lagoon on one side and other side is often rough with waves crushing on the reef. Both resorts are amazing and top of the class in everything. If you are pizza lover Gili has a natural firewood oven. Hope this helps. Thanks
