Our family of 3 spent 5 nights at AKM and we fell in love with this place. I reached out to the island as a travel agent and their communication from the beginning was amazing. From arrival to departure, we were well taken care of by our hostess, Sandy. She took care of many details for us including restaurant and activity reservations and pick up and drop offs. It was so nice to not have to think of all the details because Sandy had it covered. I tried my hardest to think of one negative thing from our trip but I couldn't. The food was great in all restaurants, the room was so clean, the grounds are well maintained, there are plenty of activities to do, but really the best part of this island is the staff. This island's service is top knotch! They really work hard every single day to make sure guests are taken care of. Special shoutout to Heni who went above and beyond to make my 2 year old happy. Ambika and Amil were so sweet and welcoming and such a pleasure to talk with every day. Villu in the Kids Club was kind and made my son comfortable during his time in the club. Every staff member that we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. We will definitely visit Atmosphere again!

From the moment we stepped onto this beautiful island,we were greeted and welcomed by the most hospitable staff who went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one.
We were excited to travel after the pandemic. All our expectations were met in terms of comfort ,hospitality,relaxation and cuisine
We stayed in the Water Villas with a pool. It was beautifully decorated and the bathrooms were spacious.
The beaches and pools were stunning.
Special thanks to Ms Mei,Sandy,Tjijender,Saalim,Abdullah,Ambika,Sunandar and all the staff that were so friendly and helpful at all times.
The Island is very big and a buggy is required to move around.
All the restuarants served delicious food .Especially Just Veg-I didnt think that vegetables could taste so good. Lunch at the Sunset Restaurant was also very good. Everything was appetising and very tasty.
We will definitely recommend this resort to all our friends in South Africa.

Room tip: watervillas with pool is ideal

We stayed at Kanifushi for 12 days in the middle of May, 2021. We were so excited to travel after the long pandemic. After much research, we selected Atmosphere Kanifushi for the reviews, accommodations, and the fact that they have five different restaurants. Since we were traveling such a long way (30 hours) and were going to be staying for an extended period of time, having multiple dining options was very important to us. Overall, we were blown away by the property, the food, and, most importantly, the staff and service.

Service
We cannot say enough about the level of service we received throughout our stay. From the moment we walked off the seaplane, and were greeted by our GRO, Arif, we felt welcomed and unbelievably cared for. While our arrival was during an unusually heavy downpour of rain and our room had taken on water as a result, the staff immediately attended to the situation, making sure that we were safe and comfortable.

We were amazed that everywhere we went on the island, each employee (and we mean EVERY employee) greeted us with warm welcomes. The staff at Kanifushi goes above and beyond at every level to make each guest feel special. They take great pride and consider it an honor to serve every guest.

We cannot say enough about Arif, our GRO we mentioned earlier. He ensured that every request, from items in the mini-fridge to dinner reservations, was met and that every day exceeded our expectations. It's obvious that Mei, the General Manager of the resort, is doing a fantastic job of running the property and coaching her staff. She maintains a high level of attention to detail. And she made herself present everyday. We had many interactions with her. We have been to resorts all over the world where we never see the GM once.

Accommodations
We selected the Over Water Sunset Villa with Pool. We read some reviews that the pool wasn't worth it. Don't kid yourself, the pool is beyond worth it. Coming back after dinner and swimming under the stars in your own pool is magical. Not to mention, an early morning dip before you start your day. There is also access from the deck into the ocean. One of your toughest decisions will be pool? Or Ocean? And why not both.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and modern. The bathrooms, while not air conditioned (that could be an improvement), are big, picturesque, and lovely, complete with windows to the ocean outside, as well as the ocean below. The mini-fridge in the room is well stocked with beer, wine, and snacks. And it is replenished twice a day. You can also request what you want more of or less of. We, however, are vodka drinkers, and they gave us two one liter bottles for our visit. Although be aware that in order to get ice, you have to order it from room service (this could be an improvement). Having near by ice machines would have been great.

Dive Shop
We are avid divers and were very much looking forward to diving in one of the world's premiere dive spots. The staff at the dive shop were perfect. They were island laid back, but extremely professional with great attention to detail. They took our equipment at the beginning of our stay and kept it at the dive shop. Everything was waiting for us on the dive boat each day. In addition to the professionalism of the dive masters, the boat crew were also amazing. On our first dive, as we were putting on our gear, the boat crew took our fins and put them on for us. We have never seen this kind of attention to service on dive boats.

Food
As seasoned travelers who have been at many all-inclusive resorts, we have never encountered an all-inclusive with this level of food. The buffet selection at Spice changes daily. The theme nights were beyond our expectations, with the Indian Ocean Night being the highlight. The light lunches at Sunset were delightful. Dinner at Pier Six was a culinary seafood extravaganza. And, we cannot express how surprised we were that we loved Just Veg, the all vegetarian restaurant, as much as we did. As devout carnivores, we couldn't believe that we went there twice, and chose to have our final dinner there. In general, we experienced tastes and cuisines that we didn't know existed.

Spa
A quick shout out to the incredible women at the spa. We had multiple treatments and highly recommend that couples experience the Couples' Massage with two therapists per person. Having two people massage you at the same time will blow your mind, and you will thank us later.

We cannot recommend Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives enough. Just stop searching and book it!!!
We cannot be back quickly enough.

Hope you found this helpful as we found other reviews helpful when we were booking.

Cheers
