Outstanding!

Crediton, United Kingdom

Flew with Qatar Airways out of Heathrow to Doha, then flight to Male. We were met by a very nice man from Kanifushi who helped with our bags and through the check in for the sea plane which was to fly us to the island. By mini bus we were driven to the Kanifushi lounge where we could freshen up, change and relax with a cold drink and snacks. After about 30 minutes we were back on the mini bus to be taken to the sea plane. Everything went so smoothly! A short 35 minutes flight to Kanifushi where we were met by lovely Evelyn! We walked along the jetty to reception in complete awe of our surroundings! Evelyn took our camera and photographed us, so sweet! At reception we were greeted by more staff, sorry terrible with names, but everyone was so welcoming. We were handed cold towels and a glass of bubbly before being taken on a tour of the island in one of the resorts electric buggies. Everything was explained very clearly to us before being taken to our villa. Oh what a heavenly villa! Huge four poster bed, decorated with the words "welcome home" spelt with leaves and petals, beautiful! Sofa and TV (we didn't turn it on), vanity unit with hair dryer, desk with coffee machine and kettle. Under the desk there was a mini fridge with beer, water, white wine, and soft drinks, it was restocked twice a day,! Beside the fridge was a shelf holding 2 bottles of red wine, restocked as needed. A cupboard with snacks, cups and glasses. Two big wardrobes and plenty of shelves and drawers. Across the hall was the outside bathroom, beautiful! The shower was bigger than the whole of our bathroom at home! Big spa bath, double basin and a separate toilet. All toiletries were supplied and the towels were luxurious! Dressing gowns and slippers were also supplied. The outside of the villa was very private with trees and bushes and a lovely view of the sea across the white sand. We watched the lizards and hermit crabs going about their business under the trees and fruit bats flying overhead, wonderful! We had our own sun beds and the outside area was swept twice daily by very friendly and hard working people. The bars were excellent with a massive range of quality drinks and delicious cocktails made to order, nothing pre mixed! All the food was delicious, hot and varied and the waiting staff could not have been more attentive, every one so warm and friendly! Various trips and excursions just put your name down on outside the dive centre the day before, first come first serve basis. We were driven around the island by the lovely buggy drivers, one in particular stood out to us but I am sorry I do not know his name only that he is from Napal, lovely kind man, he remembered our villa number, or should I say "home" number after stopping for us only once before! He actually stopped his buggy and ran to us as we were walking to the jetty to leave, we cried! We had slight issues whilst there but we spoke to management and things were resolved, nothing too much trouble, thank you Carlton! Would love to return one day and we both cried as we waved off from the jetty! Thank you one and all at the amazing Kanifushi!

Excellent holiday!

Bucharest, Romania

We just had our holiday in Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives. Starting from the friendly faces we saw at our arrival, to the perfect beach, clear water full with all kinds of fishes and sting rays - just waiting for a snorkeling session, and up to the beach vila, everything was perfect!
