Atmosphere Kanifushi is a peaceful and charming all-inclusive island resort offering premium accommodation in a fabulous location. It’s one of the largest island resorts in all of the Maldives, stretching for over two kilometres, and it’s a particularly attractive option for anyone seeking relaxation combined with privacy. It’s a 30-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport to the resort, and guests are particularly well looked after during their stay in this top-notch retreat.

There are 132 suites and stand-alone villas spaced out across the island - each villa boasts a few metres of vegetation on either side so that their occupants can enjoy plenty of privacy. All of the villas are decorated in a contemporary style, with some traditional Maldivian touches here and there lending them an authentic, homely feel. All rooms have direct access to the island’s pristine beach, not to mention picturesque ocean views. Some of the amenities common to all accommodation types include private outdoor space, a ceiling fan, complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities and a 32” flat-screen TV with DVD player.

There’s a good mix of fine dining experiences and light meals on offer throughout the day. ‘Sunset’ is an a la carte restaurant offering a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian cuisines, as well as captivating views of the setting sun. At numerous locations throughout the resort, guests can enjoy unlimited premium drinks, cocktails and mocktails, as well as a number of top brands of alcoholic drinks. There’s a huge range of cultural and adventure excursions to enjoy from sunset fishing experiences, to snorkelling, scuba diving, indulgent treatments in the lovely spa and more.

Children are very welcome to stay at Atmosphere Kanifushi and they are certainly well provided for. There’s a kids club that has a range of age-appropriate activities every day of the week and a babysitting service is available on request. Those holidaying with children should consider booking the Sunset Family Villas - these offer plenty of room for everyone and are located a short distance from the resort’s main amenities. Parents are reminded to keep their children under adult supervision at all times.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
