In the Maldives, we’re blessed with plenty of options when it comes to luxury island retreats. Across a series of blogs, we’ve handpicked some of our far-flung favourites so you can get a flavour of what each of these beautiful boltholes has to offer in terms of its whereabouts, food, accommodation and unique experiences. It’s the turn of rustic castaway-chic Kanuhura

Location, location, location

As you come in to land after your 40-minute seaplane journey from Malé, you’ll see not one, not two, but three picture-perfect tropical idylls waiting for you. Kanuhura resort is on the largest, while there’s two other tiny deserted islets for the exclusive use of guests. Casual castaway chic is the order of the day here, with no shoes needed. You’re provided with your own bicycles for pedalling around the resort, too.

Food for thought

Five restaurants, two bars and a deli doesn’t leave you lacking choice at Kanuhura. A Mano offers the breakfast buffet of dreams, Bottega is a tantalising taste of Italy and Veli is a foodie’s tour of Asia, from Singapore to South Korea. Make sure you go barefoot at Drift – set on one of those desert islands, Jehunuhura – for dinner with a difference.

A good night’s sleep

The laid-back vibe of Kanuhura translates to its bungalows and villas, furnished in tasteful and carefree gypset sophistication using a bounty of natural materials. Each one is in a prime position for either sunrise or sunset, with a spacious wooden deck either leading out onto chalk-white sand or into a topaz-blue lagoon.

Fun fact

Kanuhura is heaven for divers. Its on-site Sun Dive Center is your gateway to the 40 different dive sites of the Lhaviyani Atoll, where you can glide alongside everything from spinner dolphins to puffer fish.

Our Turquoise tip

Try and tick off all three of Kanuhura’s islands with a private Robinson Crusoe-style picnic on Masleggihura, the second of its deserted islets.
