Atmosphere Kanifushi

A deluxe five star island retreat

Atmosphere Kanifushi is an island escape like no other; a two kilometre paradise of white sand, tropical palms, sparkling ocean views, and luxurious accommodation. Generously-sized beach villas with whirlpool tubs occupy the shoreline, meaning the beach is just steps from your room. The extensive Platinum Plus package includes delectable all-day dining in the main restaurant and unlimited premium drinks — including your minibar which is replenished twice a day. A floodlit tennis court, PADI Dive Centre, and complimentary daily snorkelling trips are also included, as well as non-motorised water sports and an all-day kids' club.

Everything I wanted and more.....

Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom

This was our first holiday to the Maldives and it didn't get off to the best start due to missing our seaplane connection due to the airline and not the resort. The resort however kept in contact with us by email and ensured we boarded the first seaplane in the morning and even offered to help us with a hotel in Male. Arriving at the resort, you are greeted by staff and a very warm welcome into the reception area. The reception isn't luxurious but welcoming. On arriving and for your entire stay you get your own guest relations officer and we had a lovely lady called Charitha and nothing was too much trouble for her. We originally was staying in a beach villa. It was nice enough but wasn't really for us so we changed to a water villa and we absolutely fell in love with it, lovely looking over the water and bright and open. The island is about a mile and half and really nice walking round this. If you are not into walking you can jump on regular golf type buggies or take out bikes. Around the jetty is fantastic for snorkeling just like a scene from finding Nemo and you can borrow the snorkel kits from the resort. I was struggling at first to find one to fit but the staff were fantastic and paulin ended up fitting me with a kids one. They also offer trips further out snorkeling but I was really nervous going in. A member of staff called hassi talked me going into the sea, and kept me on a tow line and thanks to his support I ended up swimming over a large sea turtle and by 3 large black tipped reef sharks which was amazing to see. The island is stunning and staff work hard to ensure the beach and island is immaculate. There are several places to eat and a really good choice and great food. Every day you get a newsletter and tells you about trips you can go on, things like yoga, practice massage, boot camp etc. There is a gym and a tennis court. We was told the last few days off our stay that it was at 100 percent occupancy but it never felt busy and times we walk and not pass anyone. Every member of staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome and excellent service. Apologies for any spelling errors and anyone we missed but Tek that drove one of the buggies and on one evening finished working but still took us to our villa. Sudanna and Emaaz that we saw regularly in spice restaurant. Hussain from spice and worked in pier 6, didn't catch him to say goodbye but he had a great sense of humour. Vivek that looked after our Room and decorated my bed for my birthday. The staff that sang to me. The manager walks round daily and interacts with everyone to check everything is okay and anything you need. There are two swimming pools, one is adults only and the other which is large and plenty of beds. There are seats scattered around the island if you fancy just sitting and watching the stunning views. Several places to eat. Not all are free as some have to pay for but more than enough choice. Ceylon bliss must to try, but have to be careful on a night not to stand on the small crab's that cover the sand. A just veg and the food is amazing. I'm not a vegetarian but loved eating here and you can sit outside and watch the baby sharks come in. The only thing I'd love to see in the future would be quiet areas where mobile phones need to be on silent. I couldn't believe that people would be on such a beautiful island and instead of taking in the views would be sitting looking at shopping sites and adults playing loud videos. on one occasion I actually asked someone to turn their phone off. Every day at half four the beach has a large amount of stingrays come in for feeding which you must watch, and later at a night when dark and you get to see how large some of the fish are! I have nothing but praise for this island and staff and hope to be able to visit again.

Amazing honeymoon location

Atmosphere Kanifushi is a truly amazing holiday destination. Set on its own island, the resort is very peaceful and tranquil, yet offers plenty of things to do. Villas are spacious, with their own private beach (stunning views, pristine sand and water). The outdoor jacuzzi is overindulging and the service was outstanding - staff was super polite (especially at restaurants and dining areas). Food was excellent - the main restaurant offered tons of options, besides thematic food corners (e.g. Asian, Indian, seafood, etc.) By the way, the vegetarian restaurant is a must. My wife and I went to Atmosphere for a honeymoon and the place was beyond our expectations, so we will be happy to visit it again in the future.
