Honeymoon

As I write this I am laying on my comfy bean bag, sipping a delicious cocktail, overlooking the sunkissed waves and beautiful soft sandy beach here at Atmosphere Kanifushi. With just one day left of our magical holiday I feel deeply saddened to be leaving, yet overwhelmed and simply astounded by how well my husband and I have been treated throughout our entire stay. The service received by all staff from reception, restaurants, room service and even the labourers has been the best service we have ever received compared to any other holiday we have had. Their dedication and commitment to making our stay as enjoyable as possible and their genuine smiles and passion for their work really does shine through. There is not one staff member that did not go out of their way to say hello, to smile, to ask if we were ok and seemed to genuinely enjoy our company - very genuine people. I get the impression that Atmosphere Kanifushi as a company take care to treat their staff well and I feel this is the key to making all the difference in service and hospitality. A very special direct thank you to the reception manager Siran who greeted us at our sea plane arrival, he is such a great laugh, so unbelievably personable and was so kind to upgrade us throughout our stay. It has been a pleasure to meet you you are fantastic. Also our personal rep IG, always smiling and could not do any more to make us happy. She was available via watsapp at all times if required, but we enjoyed mainly updating her with photos of our whereabouts which she seemed to enjoy as much as we did. She is so efficient and always has time for you. These people become your friends. There are far too many things on this island that have wowed us, from the sting rays who greet you on arrival, the baby sharks on the back beach of the island, to the truly delicious banquets that are carefully decorated to look immaculate- the chefs are on hand to greet you to your favourite dishes and introduce you to the food that has been carefully cooked especially for you. So much love and care and hard work has gone into this island and it really does shine through. Atmosphere Kanifushi, thank you for making our stay such a delight, a true slice of paradise we will never forget. We will never forget your friendly faces. I hope my review not only helps to bring more custom, but also urges the big bosses to treat their staff to something nice as you all truly deserve it x

Our visit to Atmosphere Kanifushi

Windsor, United Kingdom

My Wife and I have just come back from Atmosphere Kanifushi. In writing this it has been difficult not to sound over the top, but our experiences there have been just amazing. In fact far beyond the hype of the brochure and many YouTube videos posted online. The staff go to such sincere lengths to create a perfect experience for visitors, and somehow manage to achieve it. From being welcomed by drums and a conch shell as our seaplane arrived, to senior staff shaking our hands as we boarded to plane to leave. Representative Miss I-Gie could not do enough to help us and make us feel welcome throughout our two week stay. Mr Anas at the Sunset went above and beyond whenever we went there. The Ladies at the Spa gave us an amazing long massage. The army of Landscapers worked hard to keep everything pristine, even to clearing fallen leaves in the rain. The food: My it was outstanding. So much variety to suit every taste. I will miss the breakfast Omelette Station Chef, he was so nice. Your Deserts Chef detail artistry was such that it was almost a pity to cut into his creations. Our Beach Villa was huge and immaculate, with mini bar restocked twice a day. We loved the open sky bathroom with amazing sunsets. It was almost emotional to have to leave. Thank you to everyone there, a very special team of perfectionists. The only suggestions I would make is having hand-rails in the showers and by poolside steps for older guests like ourselves, and perhaps considering restoring the amazing long sand bar at the Just Veg end of the island that was such a highlight when the resort first opened.
