If you are craving for a holiday in the Maldives after being bombarded with holiday pictures – images of the azure ocean, over-water dining, lazing in a hammock, diving – on Instagram by Indian celebs, why not plan your upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration here? Surrounded by the azure Indian Ocean waters, in the Kanifushi Islands of Maldives, is Atmosphere Kanifushi, a five-star luxury resort, which could be the place to redefine your love with your partner.
Go Insta-happy among the white sandy beaches, the swaying palm trees, and the lush tropical gardens which also offer privacy. The island is about two km long and 90 metre wide.
Atmosphere Kanifushi offers a variety of exclusive Maldivian villas. Stay options include the Sunset Water Villa or Sunset Beach Villas with a pool and ocean view to the resort’s newest addition, Kanifushi Grand Pool Villa.
This Grand Pool Villa is a one-bedroom island home with open-air bathrooms and luxurious amenities and a veranda which opens onto a garden area and a lap pool. Lounge by the poolside or laze in the gazebo with a Maldivian swing.
Atmosphere Kanifushi also takes its dining options seriously. Enjoy Maldivian and Asian delicacy at a charming over-water dining complex at ‘Pier Six’ with endless lagoon views or share a table surrounding a large hot plate, where a theatrical chef flip and flame raw ingredients into a delectable dinner at Teppanyaki, for a Japanese experience.
If you are fond of outdoor adventures, the resort can arrange for snorkelling and scuba diving. The natural coral reefs around the island are an explorer’s delight.
The secluded island resort is also the perfect place to rid yourself of the urban worries and rejuvenate your mind and body. Book a couple spa at ‘The Akiri Spa by Mandara’, located among lush landscaped gardens and with views of the eastern coast of the island.
Getting there: Kanifushi Island is located in the Lhaviyani Atoll. It takes 35-minute to reach by seaplane from the International Airport in Male.
