Gili Lankanfushi launches castaway family adventures

Published

on

Gili Lankanfushi has introduced a new range of castaway adventures for children aged four and above in time for the summer holidays.

This summer, the island’s little guests will discover the Indian Ocean haven in Robinson Crusoe style, through scavenger challenges, immersive cultural experiences and underwater exploration, all led by Gili Lankanfushi’s experienced Mr Fridays.

Holidays will kick off with a Pirate Party on nearby One Palm Island, where budding explorers will spend the afternoon marooned on the secluded sandbank sipping from coconuts, hunting for lost treasure and learning to build ocean rafts and island shelters using scavenged construction materials.

Adventurers will bring their scavenging skills back to the main island for a wild art class using natural materials such as palm leaves and coconut coir, and a natural cooking class with the island’s chefs, collecting tropical fruits, fresh vegetables and fragrant herbs from the island’s vast organic garden to make their own traditional Maldivian curries, juices and smoothies.

Working with the local community on nearby island of Himmafushi for an introduction into Maldivian island culture, music classes will teach children the traditional Bodu Beru drumming technique, while local Dhivehi language classes will allow them to greet and communicate with islanders and staff through basic Dhivehi phrases.

Taking to the seas, conservationists-in-making will explore the crystalline waters with Gili Lankanfushi’s marine biology team for an educational underwater treasure hunt. Snorkelling through the shallow lagoon, children will learn about the kaleidoscopic array of Maldivian marine life, identifying colourful fish species, friendly eagle rays and paddling sea turtles.

While children are occupied, parents can head to Gili Lankanfushi’s overwater Meera spa for an afternoon of peaceful pampering, or to the wine, cheese or chocolate cellars for something more indulgent. Families can continue to explore the island together with range of activities including family film screenings in the open-air Jungle Cinema, beach picnics, buggy driving lessons, family cooking classes and kayaking, snorkelling or surf lessons.

Set on the private island of Lankanfushi in the North Male Atoll, Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is an intimate coral island in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the water out to spacious villa accommodations, where ultimate privacy can be found. This luxury resort is just a 20-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport.

At Gili Lankanfushi, an idyllic personal hideaway is one of 45 spacious, rustic overwater villas crafted from natural wood and glass. A palette of sparkling blues paints the horizon, the ocean stretching to infinity wherever on the island. The open design, with indoor and outdoor living space, allows guests the freedom to be themselves, the sound of the sea and warm breeze soothing all senses.

Seven nights at Gili Lankanfushi for a family of four in a Villa Residence starts from USD 9,002, including daily breakfast and dinner and three family activities. This package offers a 20 percent saving. Valid until December 20.
