From extravagant man-made wonders in the Middle East, to beach villas spread across the shores of the Caribbean, Destinology work exclusively with the finest resorts in the world. Our experts have travelled extensively, yet the Maldives remains a favourite…
Think, for a second, of all you imagine the Maldives to be. Soft golden sand that melts beneath your footsteps, endless crystal waters reflecting the clear blue sky and, amidst it all, a tiny, secluded island for you and a select few only. This is a very real image and one that many resorts capture perfectly, Atmosphere Kanifushi being a prime example. Our experts have been fascinated by Kanifushi since day one and here’s why…
Asher Jackson – Personal Travel Consultant
‘The whole atmosphere of the island was amazing. One of my favourite things we did while I was there was go to the Teppanyaki Grill, we all sat around the cooking area, talking, laughing and drinking while the chef flipped, whirled and twirled a mix of ingredients and voila! Managed to create one of the best seafood dinners I’ve ever had.’
Steven Sheehan – Product Executive Indian Ocean
‘My girlfriend and I stayed at Atmosphere Kanifushi for a week in June 2014 and the thing that sticks in my mind is riding the bikes along the length of the island. It was a fun and easy way of taking in the sights. Absolutely everyone at the hotel are incredibly friendly. One of the gardeners actually once went out of his way to give us a lift to the restaurant on a buggy and that cemented my love for the resort and the dedicated people who work here. 100% will be going back.'
Louise Ashworth – Senior Product Manager
‘In my profession, I am very lucky to work with and travel to an abundance of luxury hotels and Atmosphere Kanifushi is right up there. I went with my daughter, who is vegetarian and she loved the all-inclusive plan at Just Veg. It’s not just salad and fish, it’s creative Mediterranean and Indian cuisine. I like to spend as much time as possible in the spa when I’m away and it was no different here. We decided we could use a therapy session on our second day, so we looked through the spa menu and were dazzled by the range of treatments. We eventually settled on a Balinese massage and did not regret it as it set us up for our relaxing holiday.'
Amy Williams – Personal Travel Consultant
‘I stayed in a Sunset Pool Villa and I loved everything about it; the big sparkling pool and especially the open air veranda, where we enjoyed drinks and romantic views of the stunning sunset. The rest of my time was taken up by the huge pool on the sunrise side of the island. It’s an adult only area so it was the perfect place to read a book, sunbathe or just enjoy one of the fruity cocktails.’
Sheree Lilley – Product Manager
‘The bar staff at the Liquid Bar were really fun and friendly. On our second day, the buggy driver actually made us a personal wooden room number that we could clip on to our bicycles. That to me is the epitome of excellent service. I was also encouraged to go snorkelling. It was only my second time I had been and we went to Bodu Giri reef, only 10 minutes away, the colours of the coral were mesmerising and I could see the fish so close up. It is an experience I’ll remember forever.’
