Each area of Kanuhura Maldives has been reimagined, working from the big picture down to each small detail. In their ambition to create a truly different destination for this part of the world, the designers took as their starting point the word “GYP.set“ N \‘jip-set\, a lifestyle that combines the unconventionality of the gypsy fused with the sophistication and speed of the jet set. Familiar with the best things in life, gypsetters are free in spirit and roam the world, finding places to escape. Kanuhura has become a place full of this bohemian spirit - unconventional, chic and enticingly laid-back.
Public areas are filled with organic forms and natural materials, playful elements, creature comforts and, of course, views of the Indian Ocean. The centre of the resort is a social lawn for lazing and also serves as the perfect place for events. Surrounding this lawn is the heart of the village where you get the basics: easy eats, pampering or play. Named after the all-white local butterfly, Kokaa in Maldivian, the spa has been re-created as a space full of grace and elegance, where one can emerge feeling refreshed and new.
Guest accommodations have uninterrupted views towards the ocean and a colour palette inspired by the palms. The crisp white bed linen, white painted walls and lime-washed teak are juxtaposed with a rattan textured feature wall and vividly coloured upholstery on the poufs and cushions. An oversize abstract painting of palms adds further colour, and there are locally crafted furniture and objects. Most of the villas have been upgraded with private pools including private sun loungers and an outdoor dining area.
