Kanuhura Resort Maldives - Araam Bar

Silver coral beaches shimmer against the waves at this island-contemporary resort situated on the eastern edge of the Lhaviyani Atoll. On its own private island, Kanuhura Resort is the perfect spot to spend your days lying in a hammock or exploring the coral reef, followed by a sunset cruise and cocktails at Handhuvaru Bar.

The atmosphere is great for adults as the resort offers several delicious restaurants, an open-air bar, and the Nashaa Club – the Maldives’ first discotheque, located on the far side of the island. If it’s a family trip, children will not be disappointed with the resort’s Kids club activities.

The resort’s neighboring island, Jehunuhura, presents a unique getaway for couples looking for a custom designed dining experience or a private spot on the beach. For guests planning a special way to renew vows or create a ceremony to celebrate their love, Kanuhura Resort is an ideal spot.

The modern Beach Villas are dotted on the island’s coral sand fringe and have private space that extends onto the beach and out to the lagoon. Or, if snorkeling to your doorstep is ideal, the resort also has wonderful over-water villa options.
