Luxury Maldives resort Kanuhura reopening after revamp

Five-star Maldives resort Kanuhura, set on a private island in the heart of the tropical Indian Ocean atoll, will reopen at the beginning of December following an 18-month redesign. The barefoot luxury resort, part of the hotel and leisure group Sun Resorts, has refreshed its aesthetic and now features 94 bohemian-style beach villas and overwater suites.

As part of the multi-million pound renovations, the resort now has a new main pool area with cabanas, in-water loungers and views of the Indian Ocean, plus a separate children’s infinity pool and terrace.

The resort features a newly-renovated dive centre with new equipment, state-of-the-art facilities and expert instructors to help guests discover the Maldive’s tropical coral reefs. There’s also a new marine biology research centre, which will help educate guests on the natural environment and conserve the local reefs.

A 35-minute transfer from Malé International Airport by seaplane, Kanuhura offers guests a wide selection of dining options, bars and activities including yoga, fishing, watersports, tennis and a spa and wellness centre.

The on-site Kokaa Spa and Wellness Retreat features six single and three couples treatment rooms, an outdoor beachside spa pavilion, beauty salon, sauna, steam room and cold plunge pool, as well as a fully-equipped gym, aerobics and hatha yoga studio. Products used in the spa are made using local marine ingredients.

Guests at the resort have exclusive access to unspoilt and uninhabited Jehunuhura private island with a white sand beach and jungle backdrop. The resort can arrange lunch or dinner, private spa treatments, and yoga sessions on the island, which is accessible only by boat from the resort.
