Occupying a stunning turquoise lagoon in the quiet Lhaviyani Atoll, Atmosphere Kanifushi is not only a treat for the eyes but also for the toes; the picture perfect, soft white sand beach stretches for two glorious kilometres and is almost 100m wide.
Just a short 30 minute seaplane from Malé, the resort boasts 132 ‘Sunset View’ villas and suites. All villas have direct access to the beach and lagoon, and are surrounded by some of the tallest coconut trees we’ve seen and lush tropical vegetation ensuring complete privacy. Interiors offer a contemporary Maldivian feel created with natural materials, timber, granite and stone.
While away your days, snorkelling the lagoon’s clear waters alongside friendly reef dwellers, relaxing beside the main pool and rejuvenating at the garden spa. As night draws in, wind down with a salute to the sun by the shore before dining at the theatrical Teppanyaki Grill.
Adventures beyond the lagoon include visiting an uninhabited island – now dedicated to coral research – for an island picnic, exploring local culture on Hinnavaru Island or taking a journey through the fascinating Maldivian history on Kurendhoo island.

Best time to travel
November - April
The best time to travel to the Maldives is during our winter months when the humidity is lower and the temperature more comfortable. However, the monsoon season of May to September should not be discounted for travel as the resorts have fantastic offers on accommodation. The heavier showers tend to occur in the mornings or the late afternoons; a perfect time to visit the spa.
