As soon as the boat pulls up to the balcony of our ultra-luxe 250 square meters’ overwater villa home “Crusoe Residence No.5”, we wanted to jump out into this endless crystal clear turquoise water and blue lagoons, plant both of our feet in the sand, then swim out to our private overwater hammock along with incredible underwater wildlife friends, and lay there from sunrise to sunset. Then stay right there without moving as we watch the stars coming out at night, each one of them blazing out so brightly across the sky, like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Yes, our overwater villa home can only be accessed by boat, that is how exclusive this paradise is. This is by far the best overwater villa we have ever stayed in here in Maldives. Gili Lankanfushi or the formerly known as Soneva Gili Lankanfushi runs with one rule and one rule only “no news, no shoes”. Making it feel so damn good leaving the rest of the world behind as this place leaves us breathless and makes us believe we can walk on water, an ultimate barefoot luxury. Not only that they are a home to the world’s Overwater Villas (Yes! All of those you now see in Bora Bora is the imitation of this) but they also are a home of The World’s Largest Overwater Villa “The Private Reserve” 1,700 Square Meters. It is not often you found yourself in a place that its real life beauty surpasses that of magazines and advertisement you have ever seen. Gili Lankanfushi is a resort beyond any words and expectation. Something truly to be experienced by oneself.
We have been yearning for a journey across the expanse of the sea that stretched infinitely before us, the time of fantasy that reaches beyond the waves to the waters where the dolphins play. Soneva in Aqua is all that. It is the fantasy that has turned into reality and a perfect dream come true. Having the entire Yacht only for you as The Ultra Top-Notch Luxurious Overwater Floating Villa Suite in Maldives and Six Crew Members Dedicatedly Serving You Around The Clock (As if being in Maldives wasn’t enough already :)) One of those crew members is Six Senses Spa Therapist so you can have the treatment anytime and anywhere you like whether on private sandbank or onboard in the bedroom, in the living room, or on the main deck feeling the ocean breeze, the warmth of the Sunday against your skin while listening to the beautiful sound of the waves. Your personal chef is also on board, so all of your favorite mouthwatering dishes will be made available, the sky is the limit. The yacht also takes you wherever you want to go, the sea is at your command. On board there are two Jacuzzis one outdoor and one in the master bedroom with sunken glass tub revealing underwater world beneath it and the ocean is your playground. Undoubtedly This is The Ultimate Barefoot Luxury, The Wildest Dream, and The Best of The Best of Any Bucket List. Once you have stepped on board there is no going back. Have we died and gone to heaven already?
Looking through the window of our airplane to see this surreal scenery of Maldives. Unparalleled Luxury, Surreal Land Scape of The Whitest White Sand Beaches & Crystal Clear Turquoise Blue Water on Secluded Paradise Islands (Oh there are about 1,190 Islands! Yes this is not a typo!), and The Magical Underwater World made Maldives an undeniable small piece of Heaven on Earth. The perfectly glamourous tropical getaway awaits for your arrival.
