Gili Lankanfushi, Villa Suites January 6, 2018

The room types at Gili Lankanfushi range from one and two bedroom overwater villas, to free standing overwater villas and then the creme de la creme rent the Residence, a four bedroom amazing house with its own pool and slide. We stayed in a one bedroom over water villa that was connected to the mainland by a jetty.  It was more than comfortable for the two of us.  Although I wanted to sneak a peak at the Residence it was occupied during our stay.  The free standing villas appeared to have water gardens, and hammocks outside the villas and were a little larger.  A9FDA5BB-E5CC-4F87-8257-6DA10498F372

So this morning I left you outside the front door.  Well come on in!

4DD34282-33F1-4703-8C54-9FA529474258This is the open air living room. It looks out to the Indian Ocean.  There are two couches on each side. The bedroom is through the door.

7C5BE852-A817-459D-8B21-14D3CE98B1AFHere is the cabinet that holds, soda, beer, and wine. To the left are glasses and plates, to the right is hard liquor. On top of the credenza is a Nespresso machine that I could only figure out once. There is always plenty of bottled water. The first night we were left a complementary bottle of champagne and iced tea. We never got around to drinking it.  The soda, beer etc. were not free.

1EB7AD24-1BD0-464E-9F2B-7120EBEAC36BLet’s go in the bedroom. There was a little couch and a desk. The room looked out to to Indian Ocean and the barrier reef surrounding the atoll.  D29705CE-2A3D-4960-98FE-D7218C58976EHere is the beautiful bed. The mosquito netting was just for show, we never saw a mosquito while we cheer here. There were plenty of outlets, near the bed and reading lamps. There was a paddle fan above it you didn’t want to use the air conditioning.  Temperatures were in the 80’s here, humidity was not oppressive due to the constant breezes. We did use the A/C at night as the breeze would stop in the middle of the night.

4CC5D9D5-97AF-456A-96EC-0F91710A8F1AThe view outside the desk was of the neighboring villa, and their shower.

811D8CA0-38E6-461B-AA23-7925C871ED9AThere is a television in the bedroom. We never even turned it on!

84A7AF0E-3B34-45E0-BEE4-B650046F4950We were left some goodies, watermelon with goat cheese, dates and then tuna. I ate the two on the left, we skipped the tuna.

8CB9C83F-637A-4ABC-9BD8-4A34F7B89B1DIn the great room facing the outside was a little table, and the wine bucket holding the goodies we never got around to try!  Below is our private deck.  Let’s check that out!

F907DDA4-3DC1-4963-A8FA-EA3EB4A85421Well, what do you know, Steve has changed and is there already!  I’m busy taking picutres for the blog, and he is relaxing! He has the right priorities!  Anyway the deck had two twin chaise lounges, an umbrella and two built in hammocks.  We each made the mistake of trying them out. Once you get in it is hard to get out! We had to crab walk our way out.

A1282CF6-4B16-427E-A180-283048908A37There were also two builtin small sofas, with a see through coffee table through which you could see fish swim by!

958F148A-F587-48E2-9906-93AC7C0CC2DFThis is a view from the deck to the living room, and the hostage taking hammocks! Once in them, they were difficult to get out. I had to call Steve for directions on how to get out of them. No pictures as we were laughing too hard to take any pictures!

3052B35D-BD22-4A6F-A59C-032C57241027This is the view from the deck of the bathroom.  Wait til you see inside!

We will leave Steve outside and head on in though the louvered doors.

8DA44755-DB3D-49AF-8DB6-58EBED793B1FTo the right are matching sinks, and a soaking tub with a view of the water. They had bath crystals available for you too!

89C0C1D5-F1C4-440C-9D8F-72BD3541F28ETo the right was a big mirror and open closet. Steve unpacked when I started taking pictures. Sometimes I make him wait to unpack until I get all my pictures taken. Not this time!

65E3B848-D78F-4ED4-8012-930C811F257DStraight ahead is the shower.  The curved aqua shape is a little settee you could sit on when you changed your clothes.


Here is a better view of it. And the glass circle?

2FF17122-E90A-4769-A5D2-491286F082B5Your very own view of the ocean while you tie your shoes!

65E3B848-D78F-4ED4-8012-930C811F257DLet’s go study this picture again. The shower is down the walkway. What is to the right?

A2749F85-E799-4E03-9650-364B471E60AFYour very own grotto, where you can swim in the nudie!  Or use as a snorkel access point. Steve saw a five foot shark swim right through the grotto!

CFA93507-512B-4AA5-BACE-D5BF04D8EDA6Here is the shower, you had a choice of waterfall or regular shower head. Or you can even have a shower for two, so no one gets cold!  The shower had frosted glass on one side, the front was all open air, so it did get breezy at times. The resort is eco friendly and had refillable shampoo and conditoners.  No wasteful mini bottles.

894B1C2F-9F5D-49BE-B3C3-60AE0FB535B5There is still more! Let’s go on upstairs! Up the winding staircase…

F58ABF0F-3871-45CA-B024-EA82D0519601We see a small set of cozy chairs.

0AE9AC41-22D2-4435-8969-695F7AD4372EUpstairs was also a bed that you could sleep in during the rain, or pull it out from the canopy if you wanted to sleep under the stairs!  We did! Howeve as I wear contacts, and Steve glasses, our views weren’t so good after the contacts were out and the glasses off!

3F44EA9C-EEC7-485C-94FB-1F9F774F390AThere was a small table and chairs if you wanted to sit and enjoy your sundowner.

3A85204C-CA21-4DD4-B25A-C5A2FF6D418BAnd speaking of sundown, enjoy!  It’s time for dinner!
