Kanuhura Maldives



Our Verdict

The Maldives island resort of Kanuhura is adorned with orchids, coconut trees, hibiscus and other tropical foliage, making it one of the most beautiful in the Maldives. Stroll through the exotic greenery to the white sandy beach, admire the 15,000 orchids in 15 colours which include the resort’s very own registered variety of orchid (‘Dendrobium Kanuhura’) or snorkel amongst the dazzling variety of marine life on the house reef.

Here at Kanuhura, tropical beauty meets five star luxury. The 1,000m-long and 200m-wide island features 96 exclusive villas on the beach and set across the sparkling water. Each villa combines high quality hand-crafted natural materials with sophisticated facilities and amenities including in-villa bars, DVD players, private verandas with sea views and freeform baths. Kanuhura is paradise for gastronomes, with international buffets, Mediterranean-inspired pizza, seafood and steak and Asian specialities. The resort also boasts the first restaurant in the Maldives to be located on an islet of its own, Island Tropical Grill at Jehunuhura. The restaurant is open for lunch every day and is just five minutes by boat from Kanuhura. Jehunuhura is also available for romantic picnics, private dinners and special events.
