Gili Lankanfushi, named the Best Hotel in the World by TripAdvisor in the Traveller’s Choice Awards 2015, is about to get even better. The resort’s amazing Private Reserve – the largest overwater villa in the world – has been upgraded, making it more dazzling than ever.
In one of my previous post I’ve written a long article about this fascinating water villa. If you’ve missed it, you can read it here at The Largest and Most Incredible Water Villa in The World
The Private Reserve was already a master piece in the Water Villa world, but today this floating wooden palace is getting even more breathtaking !
What’s new ?
As part of an extensive renovation programme, a new 63 square metre fresh water swimming pool has been added overlooking the lagoon sunrise side.
With a vast sun-deck and shaded pavilions, access is via wooden walkways from the master suites, as well as the main lounging area.
There will also be a jacuzzi within the pool, the perfect spot for sundowners.
“The beautiful pool adds an extra dimension to the Private Reserve, a wonderful alternative for those who prefer fresh water to the sea – and it’s obviously unaffected by the tides,” said Steven Philips, General Manager of Gili Lankanfushi.
“We also wanted to make the most of the deep channel right in front of the villa, so it was built without having to disturb any of the local ecosystem.”

The World’s largest overwater villa
A Place out of this World, standing in the middle of the lagoon and spreading over 1400 square meters.
The Private Reserve has also a new en-suite bedroom
A spacious new en-suite bedroom has also been added to one of the two master suites – ideal for families. But as each suite is the same size as the resort’s huge Crusoe Residences, there’s still ample room for total privacy for friends.
Other improvements include a new library and study for any business needs, complete with an en suite bathroom and large comfortable lounging beds.
A shower room is being added within the gym and fresh new furnishings throughout the villa.
