The Ultimate Maldives ~ Photos Of Gili Lankanfushi
As many of you already know we are right in the middle of Maldives week here at Beers & Beans and today is photo essay day! Yay!
It took me a long time to go through all of these photos and edit them because there were so many good ones–it is basically impossible to take a bad photo in the Maldives. Whether it’s jungle canopied walkways, glistening palm trees or the perfect sunset blue skies, every corner you turn at Gili Lankanfushi is literally a perfect scene. The attention to detail did not go unnoticed–I was in love with everything and fully appreciated all of the amazing thought and effort that goes into creating such an incredible paradise. Especially since having minimum impact on the environment is so important to the resort. Gili is a perfect example of how beauty and ecology can go hand in hand.
Simply put, Gili Lankanfushi is like the girl with perfect, sexy bed hair. It doesn’t look like it took a lot of work but you know it did. The difference is simply that the designers who crafted it were so skilled, they made it look easy, effortless and utterly stunning. When you’re there you feel carefree, relaxed but still cradled in the palms of beauty, just like that girlfriend you have with the perfect bed hair.
I could go through an entire thesaurus coming up with the perfect adjectives for this island paradise, but instead I’ll let the photos do the talking. These are some of my absolutely favorite images from not only our stay at Gili Lankanfushi but from all of our travels combined. A couple of them have made an appearance before on our site but most of them are brand spankin’ new.
I hope you like these photos of Gili Lankanfushi! If you have a favorite or a question please let me know in the comments.
There is one portrait below that I’d specifically like to point out now. That good looking man by the palm tree is Ateef. He was our Mr. Friday on the island and from surfing arrangements to dinner and spa services he handled everything for us and often times at the last minute. He was absolutely phenomenal and always available to help us. He is an amazing painter to boot – he showed us several of his paintings and they were all amazing! We had such a great time with him on the island and felt like we made a new friend when we were there. If you remember our first post announcing our trip that was exactly what we were hoping for. If you go to Gili Lankanfushi you should ask and see if he is available to be your Mr. Friday, he is a truly beautiful person and made our stay even more perfect.
