Kanuhura is a coral island hideaway in a remote atoll of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. A seaplane brings you to the resort's timber and thatch on silver sand, smiling service and the most up-to-date facilities.

With its two beautiful little island neighbours, Kanuhura is a very private hideaway with a wide range of relaxations, bars, restaurants, activities and sports. Close by are some of the world's best diving sites, with the outer reef dropping down nearly 2,000 metres. It has a wellness centre with a spa, an aerobics studio and gymnasium.

Accommodation is in villas either on the island's coral sand fringe or in a little village on stilts at the end of a wooden pier. ‘In-villa' dining is a speciality, providing romantic dinners and special celebrations in the privacy of your villa, or various locations on the island.
