A small resort with only 45 total rooms and suites, the Gangehi Island Resort is one of the smaller private-island hotels that can be found in the Maldives. Here you'll find 8 Over Water suites just off the beach, and 8 De Luxe Over Water suites out over the lagoon, which you'll note are much larger and have more amenities, but only cost a little bit more.

The island is run by Italians and because of that, is popular with Italians, but all the staff speak English as well, so anyone who appreciates Italian culture, tropical style, and food should be very happy. The full-board meal plan seems to be the only option, so meals are included but drinks are not.

Getting there


The Gangehi Island Resort gets excellent reviews from nearly every past guest, so it is consistently exceeding peoples’ expectations. The over water bungalows in particular get raves from everybody, mostly for the tasteful furniture and design. People say the De Luxe bungalows are definitely worth the extra money.


The small island itself gets high marks for its lovely boutique vibe and lush setting. The restaurant and its Italian chefs also get very strong compliments, so as long as you like Italian food (and who doesn’t?) you should also be happy. The few negative reviews that are around seem pretty out of place, and thus don’t seem to be worth paying any attention to.
