About the hotel
SETTING & STYLE
Gangehi Island is a small luxury resort reached within 25 minutes by seaplane from Male Airport. This secluded and peaceful island has lush vegetation; on one side it is bordered by a coral reef close to the shore, on the other it opens into a broad lagoon. Protected by its barrier reef, the island is a pearl of white sand, shaded by coconut palms and surrounded by crystal-clear sea.
The marine life is one of rare beauty: an amazing variety of tropical fish swim around the coral along with marine turtles and many other.
