Couples looking for the most romantic destination to spend their honeymoon, or simply to enjoy quality time together in the dreamiest setting, can now create special memories in a sanctuary hidden from the world with Gili Lankanfushi’s Romance Package, specially curated for two.
Located on a pristine private coral island in the North Malé Atoll, the famed eco resort offers the ultimate private getaway, filled with castaway romance and barefoot luxury. Pairs who book any villa type with a minimum 4-night stay from now until 20th December 2022, can avail a complimentary round-trip speed boat transfer to and from Velana International Airport and enjoy a host of inclusive romantic experiences.
Once each couple arrives, they will be charmed by the beauty of the timeless haven and enchanted by the island’s natural surroundings. The friendly faces of the Gili team and every couple’s very own Mr. Friday (who are experts in creating memorable romantic moments) will meet guests on arrival and be on hand to assist with every request.
The Romance Package takes lovebirds on culinary journey, inspired by Maldivian traditions. With an inclusive daily gourmet breakfast and dinner at Kashiveli Restaurant, the resort’s culinary team will spoil diners with stunning dishes, turning the unimaginable into the unforgettable in the most romantic setting. Pairs can celebrate their love whilst being treated to colourful and balanced plant-based menus which are carefully crafted by the resort’s Executive Chef, Hari Govindaraj.
For an unconventional dining experience outside the comforts of a restaurant, couples can take part in the resort’s ‘Dining for the Senses’, an out of the ordinary dinner moment located under the starlit sky in a secret location. Guests will be picked up from their villa, offered a blindfold and then driven by buggy to a secluded spot on the island. Between each course, couples can be silly together and bring out their inner child whilst putting their senses to the ultimate test, where they will have to guess each deconstructed dish.
Lovebirds can also find peace, relaxation, and tranquility in the resort’s overwater Meera Spa which sits in a magnificent, secluded bay and choose between a 60-minute Ayurvedic therapy session or Kahnuma Lomi Lomi. The holistic haven is sprawled across languid waters and offers six over-water treatment rooms, steam, and sauna rooms (which can be used as part of their romance story) and an open-air relaxation area, overlooking the most breathtaking sea views. Guets can leave this sweet escape with a complimentary Meera “Better Sleep” Spa gift, the perfect memorabilia of their time at Gili.
Wellbeing and balance in body and soul is central to the resort’s ethos, therefore pairs can watch the breathtaking sunrise during a calming yoga session led by Dev, the resort’s yoga master, or take part an in-villa couple’s yoga experience, in the privacy of their own villa.
Finally (if not most importantly from a wellness perspective), guests can connect with their other halves during Gili Lankanfushi’s sleep under the stars experience, which allows soulmates to drift into dreamland under the vast blanket of a million stars on the rooftop terrace of their villa, where they will fall asleep together to the gentle lapping of the waves and cool ocean breeze. Complete with sparkling wine and cocktails as well as breakfast in bed the following morning, it’s a treasured memory couples won’t forget. Gili’s expert team will of course add their special touch by running a stunning tropical flower bath complemented with candle lights, champagne, and strawberries.
Within the resort’s glistening blue lagoon, couples can deepen their bond whilst taking part in an array of non-motorized water sports activities, which include kayaking, canoeing, and paddle-boarding. Admire stunning sunsets whilst swimming in crystal-clear waters and make cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
