Hotel Overview

A well established deluxe resort with an easy going ambiance, Kanuhura offers something for everyone.
The charming thatched roof villas have been built using indigenous materials to create an elegant rustic interior complementing the natural surroundings. Choose from a Beach Villa or a Water Villa on stilts, both of which are seconds away from a swim in the ocean.

If you’re holidaying with children then this resort is ideal. The Kids’ Club is operated by a team of trained staff and features a large sand filled playground and shallow pool. Fun activities include pirate games and treasure hunts (befitting the tropical island location!).  With opening times from 9am to 10pm and babysitters readily available, you’re guaranteed plenty of adults only time to indulge in a private picnic lunch; a pampering session in the spa or a chance to dive one of the 40 nearby dive sites.

With tennis courts, squash courts, beach volleyball and endless watersports, there are more activities than you can really do in one stay! But don’t miss the dolphin spotting trips.  The expansive buffet breakfast is well worth getting up for – keep your eye out for an incredible choice of jams! Enjoy a poolside lunch at the Mediterranean-style Olive Tree, sunset cocktails at Handhuvaru Bu, followed by a romantic dinner on the beachfront deck at the Veli Café.
