Atmosphere Kanifushi

All-Inclusive Indulgence at Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives

Located on the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll in the Maldives, Atmosphere Kanifushi is an all-inclusive, all-villa hideaway offering the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. Suitable for couples and families, the resort offers water villas, beach villas and sunset beach villas, each one beautifully adorned with spacious interiors and outdoor spaces. Best of all, every villa offers breathtaking views of the turquoise lagoon. When it comes to fine dining, Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives stands out from the crowd with its two signature restaurants. Just Veg has the distinct accomplishment of being the Maldives’ first vegetarian restaurant, serving a delightful medley of Mediterranean, Arabic and Indian cuisine. The Lantern, meanwhile, is a harmonious and stylish relaxed retreat for evening drinks and meals.

Water sports are a well-known and revered pastime in the Maldives. Why wouldn’t you want to explore the beautiful waters that surround your private island? Atmosphere Kanifushi provides a range of water sports for you to enjoy. Diving, snorkelling and windsurfing are all exhilarating, but the excursions are equally unforgettable. Romantic sunset cruises and daily sunset fishing can be arranged directly by the hotel and the fading hues and colours in the sky are mesmeric. Merge days exploring the blue waters, with moments of serenity at the Akira Spa by Mandara. Soothe, rejuvenate and revitalise your body and mind with a selection of holistic spa treatments inspired by a fusion of Indian, Balinese, Hawaiian and Thai therapies, all designed for you
