Kanuhura is a luxury resort offering laid-back island living for the contemporary traveller. Aside from Kanuhura island itself, the retreat features two additional hideaways: Jehunuhura & Masleggihura, each boasting sapphire-blue waters, white sandy beaches and lush tropical palms.
Stay in one of 80 villas, tastefully furnished and built using a bounty of natural materials. The Beach Villas sleep up to four people, while the Retreat Family Beach Pool Villa sleeps eight. Step out into the sunshine and traipse down the private wooden deck to reach the beach and lagoon. Explore vibrant coral reefs on a snorkelling excursion, or watch the sky blaze with oranges and pinks during a sunset cruise.
Kanuhura offers a range of dining experiences, from romantic moonlit dinners to picnics on the beach – and with eight restaurants and bars, you’re spoilt for choice. Enjoy sundowners on the pristine beach in the shade of a tepee. Learn how to make delectable Maldivian dishes in the cooking class, or savour a tailor-made wine tasting with the resident sommelier.
For a bit of R&R, spoil yourself with Kokaa Wellness Retreat’s luxury spa treatments, from facials to body wraps. There’s even yoga and meditation to keep you limber and mellow.
The kids’ corner at Boduberu Lounge provides a warm welcome for children aged four to 11. There’s also a tree house to clamber up, a pirate cruise to board and a mini Olympics to compete in. Whilst here, encourage the little ones to help the local wildlife by becoming turtle ambassadors.
