Second visit... still amazing.

Darwin, Australia

Visited Atmosphere Kanifushi for the second time earlier this year. I can honestly say that I'll happily go a third time! If you want white sand, crystal clear water and a worry-free existence, look no further, From the moment you step off the seaplane, the staff treat you like family. Not like a mother-in-law, but like a relative that you care about... In our week there, I would have spent 90% of my time either at the bar, the pool, the buffet or the beach. I came home relaxed, tanned and about 5kg heavier. The food!!!! The buffet is the staple. Different every single day and every day bloody incredible. There is also an entire room full of deserts and sweets... probably contributing a good deal to the extra weight I packed on the way home. The Sri Lankan street food by the water had to be a favourite though. Even the vegetarian restaurant that the wife dragged me to multiple times was incredible, despite there being no meat in sight. Don't tell her I said that though. We packed in so many activities on our trip - fishing, snorkelling, fishing, boat trips, jet ski rides, fishing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding... and did I mention the fishing? The rooms are luxury and they all look out on the most picturesque beach vista you've ever seen... but I think our favourite thing about atmosphere is the beautiful staff. They are kind, helpful, generous and just make you feel so special. And I think this is what will keep us coming back. Already looking forward to our next trip!!

Amazing place.

Birmingham, United Kingdom

I have recently returned from a week holiday here with my husband and two teenage kids. What an amazing place, from the seaplane transfer, to the welcome on the jetty when you get off the plane. We had a sunset family villa, which was wonderful, ours (number 126) even had its own swing, and was perfectly sited near to the pool and Spice, the buffet restaurant. Food at the Spice was really nice, and we especially liked going there for lunch, as we virtually had the place to ourselves. As per other reviews, we never had any problems there getting further drinks, the waiting staff were very attentive. Sunset restaurant is well worth a visit and we had delicious food there, with excellent service. The pool was amazing, there was never a problem getting loungers there, and waiting staff were superb here, constantly asking and refilling drinks. Beach was perfect, to say there was 300 guests, it was deserted and I wonder where they all were! I was worried our teenage children would get bored, but there was more than enough things to do to fill their time. The building works did concern me, and I nearly cancelled going here due to this fact, however I need not have worried as they had minimal impact, I only ever heard construction noise a handful of times and it did not bother us at all. Staff were so friendly and helpful, always greeting you and seemed totally genuine. All in all, what can I say......paradise perfection. Loved it here and would return.
