Nothing says ‘remote island luxury’ more than the Kanuhura Maldives.
Set within an island just a kilometre long and 200 metres wide, this romantic resort offers a world of possibilities for you to explore.
The small Jehunuhura island is framed by pristine white sand, providing panoramic views of the Indian Ocean for each lucky guest.
The resort underwent comprehensive renovation in 2016, revealing a magnificent fresh look, with contemporary touches whilst maintaining its authentic Maldivian charm. Whichever villa you choose, you can revel in your king-size bed, outdoor shower and pillow menu for the perfect night’s rest.
The Kanuhura offers 80 sun-kissed villas, positioned on both the sunrise and sunset side of the Jehunura island, as well as over the crystal-blue waters of the Indian Ocean. With private decks for each villa or your own personal, white sand beach and lovingly designed interiors, marvel at the home-from-home feel in this tropical paradise. Everything has been taken care of here. From the five unique dining options to the fully-equipped children’s and teens clubs, experience the Maldives in your own way.
Whether you’ve come to soak up the sunshine and switch off from it all by the tranquil infinity pool, or you want to explore everything the Indian Ocean has to offer, the Kanuhura Maldives ticks all the right boxes. If you can’t bear to drag yourself away from your villa and the sunshine, a personal villa host can organise everything your hearts desire 24/7.
From champagne breakfasts to chocolate-dipped strawberries or a relaxing in-villa massage. Get-up-and-go types can choose from private dolphin safaris, night time diving and even private dining on Jehunuhura. There’s enough going on here to enjoy different experiences every day.
Those fanatical about food will devour everything at Kanuhura’s five restaurants, whilst its very own street food market offers deli-style snacks to tempt the taste buds. From fresh Indian Ocean seafood to Italian favourites and perfectly barbecued steaks, enjoy your culinary quest just a stone’s throw from your indulgent villa.
Choose from a selection of 80 luxury beach and over-water villas, either on the island’s coral sand fringe or on a stilted village at the end of a wooden pier.
Prepare yourself for a different culinary journey every day when you stay at the Kanuhura. Enjoy a great choice of beach grills, wholesome Italian dishes and delicate Asian flavours from the resort’s beachside setting. There’s nothing better than devouring Michelin-quality food and drink whilst hearing the waves lap against the shore. Island living doesn’t get any better than this.
Bottega offers handmade, artisanal Italian pizzas, as well as mouth-watering Mediterranean-inspired seafood dishes in an intimate setting.
Veli is situated just seconds from the Indian Ocean, offering a string of Asian Fusion specialities, from sushi and Korean-style barbecues to tempting tandoori grills. Veli’s menu is bursting at the seams with flavour.
If you’re ready and willing to sample new flavours, the Chef’s Herb Garden offers an exotic gastronomic experience. With set menus that change every day, no two meals here are ever the same. This restaurant is exclusively reserved for private dinner bookings so be sure to book ahead!
A Mano offers the very best in show cooking, with special buffet dinners and themed nights.
Accessed by boat shuttle that departs Kanuhura every 20 minutes, Drift Beach Grill is a perfect lunchtime spot for a meaty pick-me-up.
The resort’s beach bar and poolside Cowry Club are home to a number of professional mixologists, capable of preparing sumptuous alcoholic beverages, morning, noon and night.
Activities and Entertainment
A getaway to the Kanuhura Maldives can be as active or as tranquil as you desire. There’s plenty of opportunities for island-hopping and exploring the shallow waters and corals of the Lhaviyani Atoll by snorkel. The resort’s PADI-certified diving school, the ‘Sun Dive Center’ offers a great range of diving courses tailored to newcomers and seasoned ‘Divemasters’ alike. Keen anglers will jump at the chance to head out on a boat for a big game fishing excursion, with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fish for unique Indian Ocean sea life.
If your luxury holiday to the Maldives is all about spending quality time together, the Kanuhura can arrange for private island picnics, allowing you to leave the resort for the afternoon hand-in-hand and take in your surroundings. Sunset cruises are also an idyllic way to finish any magical day in the Maldives.
On-site, the Kanuhura also has a range of leisure facilities, such as a freshwater swimming pool, floodlit tennis courts, air-conditioned squash courts and a dedicated gym with daily classes led by fully-qualified personal trainers.
The Kanuhura’s Kokaa Wellness Retreat and Spa transports you to another world of tranquillity thanks to its indulgent range of treatments, tailored to your bespoke requirements.
