In the ambition to create a truly different destination for the Maldives, 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, gyp-setters are free in spirit and roam the world, finding places to escape. They have an intuitive understanding of modern sophistication and international tastes, and they seek to be emotionally and creatively connected with wherever they land. Kanuhura has become a place full of this bohemian spirit – unconventional, chic and enticingly laid-back. The entire space was re imagined from large to small, creating larger guestrooms and new restaurant outlets and to the smallest details – designing crockery and picnic baskets and staff uniforms that all tie in to the property’s narrative.
