  • Gili Lankanfushi, a paradisiacal private island in the Maldives, swept the board at the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards to take the title of The Best Hotel in the World
  • The 45-villa island was singled out for its dream-like location and its tireless commitment to upholding a high standard of service

Paradise has got a new postcode. Popular private island rental retreat Gili Lankanfushi has been awarded with the impressive title of “The Best Hotel in the World” after sweeping the board at the 13th annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards. The results, which were published earlier this month, are the result of millions of reviews posted by TripAdvisor users during the course of the past year.

“TripAdvisor’s community of millions of travelers has helped us highlight some of the very best hotels from around the world,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “The Travelers’ Choice list of thousands of award-winning properties is perfect to inspire travelers as they think about their 2015 travel plans.” Taking into account service, quality and value, the award winners reflect the world’s best all-round accommodation solutions.

Located in a tiny sparkling lagoon, the tiny coral island hideaway has long since been receiving plaudits for both its “no news, no shoes” policy, where travelers are encouraged to swap their internet connection for an in-depth connection to nature, and its first class private butler service, which sees each and every guest assigned with their very own “Mr Friday.”

After taking a couple of days to let the news sink in, General Manager, Steven Philips, proudly offered the following statement to Private Island News. “Winning the 2015 ‘Best Hotel in the World’ Award has meant a huge amount of plaudits coming our way. We would like to return the compliments to our guests. If not for them, we wouldn’t be able to achieve such accolades.”

“Gili Lankanfushi really is an amazing island and we are fortunate to be the custodians of one of the true gems of the Maldives. When we add to this, the team of hosts who offer such genuine and friendly service, we are able to provide our guests with a wonderful vacation experience and it is our honour to do so.”
