‘Adults Only – Spa Relaxation – Activities to Share’

The island bungalows are situated over water and have direct access to the lagoon.

The spa is the perfect location for relaxation and there are yoga and meditation sessions available. Dining options are varied with international and local speciality dishes available from eight restaurants and bars and you can even try cooking for yourself at the Spice Spoons cookery school.

In Our Opinion

‘Take a trip to Gulhifushi – it is the recreation island, or not! We suggest you just explore relaxation in one of the beach hammocks with an occasional dip in the natural ocean pool - Indian Ocean perfection.’
