Also included is a ‘Romantic Bath Ceremony’, again with champagne, and chocolate-dipped fruits in the privacy of their own villa, and a ‘Romantic Villa Turndown’ on the last evening.
Famed for its laid-back luxury, authentic Maldivian charm and personal butlers, the resort also includes complimentary use of One&Only Spa facilities including fully equipped gym, fitness centre, dry and steam sauna, plunge pool and Jacuzzis – along with most non-motorised water sports, tennis and squash courts, table tennis, billiards and darts

Surrounded by a turquoise lagoon, One&Only Kanuhura features three gourmet restaurants, a poolside beach bar, freshwater freeform swimming pool and a wide variety of activities including scuba diving, big game fishing, water sports, squash and tennis.
Built traditionally from thatch, timber and stone, the resort’s trademark is casual barefoot-chic elegance with Beach Villas along the island and Water Villas and Grand Water Villas on stilts in the lagoon.
With an award-winning spa, it was recently voted ‘Best Resort Design’ by Hospitality Design magazine.
One&Only Kanuhura is also renowned as the first Maldivian resort with a traditional arts and cultural centre, where native artists produce traditional handicrafts and chefs cook local delicacies for a “real taste of the Maldives”.
It is also one of few Maldivian resorts with its own nightclub.
When the sun sets, a neighbouring desert island becomes the perfect location for private parties or romantic hideaways for two, with lavish Champagne dinners served under the stars, barbecues, bonfires and Bodu Beru (traditional Maldivian drum music and dance) for either small groups of friends or an intimate candle-lit evening for couples.
Villa Hosts assigned to every villa look after every individual need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week – from reconfirmation of plane tickets to delivering chilled champagne or elaborate breakfast in bed.
The resort has been voted Maldives’ Leading Hotel in the World Travel Awards (UK), ranked among the Top Ten Best Hotel Spas in Africa, Middle East & Indian Ocean by Conde Nast Traveller (UK), in the Top Ten World’s Great Hotels for Pre-Teens and their Families by Wow.net and Best in the Maldives for Food by Gallivanter’s Guide (UK).
Hector de Galard, General Manager, said: “This tiny island is renowned the world over as the ultimate Maldivian paradise island experience -- the epitome of casual elegance and barefoot luxury.”
