There’s nothing quite like the feeling of swinging through the air on a perfect day at thus luxury Maldives resort with an unrivalled sense of freedom. And, as you gently glide through the air, you are able to take in outstanding tropical surrounds that are absolutely dream-worthy while embracing the fresh air and the feeling of utter relaxation - it’s the perfect time to just ‘be’ and enjoy the magical moment.
Does the idea of swinging in paradise appeal to you? Then here are the best places to do just that at Kanuhura:
The Boduberu Lounge and the entrance of Kanuhura
One of the most astounding things about this exclusive luxury Maldives resort is that it's only accessible by seaplane. As you land in Malé, you will be guided to Kanuhura’s luxury airport cabana-like lounge, the Boduberu Lounge, where you will wait for your special seaplane transfer to the tropical gem of Kanuhura.
In this minimalist-chic lounge, there are delicious refreshments on offer (as well as kid-friendly options) that you can enjoy on one of the stylish seaside swing-chairs, the perfect place to settle into the island lifestyle. Take in the amazing blues of the Indian Ocean, watch the seaplanes arrive and depart, look out for colourful marine life and indulge in the tasty treats on offer as you take in the tranquillity of the lounge to the gentle sounds of ambient music and water lapping the jetty.
Once you arrive on the island itself, next to the sign of Kanuhura is another fantastic place to swing: on the hammock that boasts a prime position directly on the beach. Apart from the perfect post-plane spot to take in the surrounds (and realise you are not dreaming), it’s also a superb place for an island photo-op.
Kanuhura’s reception provides yet another excellent place to swing. There are two swings in reception which provide a wonderful place to relax. In fact, you can even pick a book from the reception’s library and make the most of a quiet afternoon in paradise.
The gorgeous gypset-inspired Iru Bar is a phenomenal place from which to watch an extraordinary Maldivian sunset, ideally with your favourite tipple or signature cocktail in hand. The intricate, beaded swings here are located at the bar counter where you can chat to the expert mixologist so that they can prepare the perfect bespoke drink for you while waiting, toes in the sand, and taking in the mesmerising tropical surrounds. Watch the sunset dazzle from the bar swings or head to one of the nearby hammocks and enjoy another breathtaking moment in paradise.
The kids club
Kanuhura’s little guests are seen as the VIPs they are, and the kids club on the island is well-loved, thanks to its amazing counsellors and fun-filled, age-appropriate activities which enable kids to make friends with other children at the resort while having a holiday to remember. And because these small guests are as important to Kanuhura as their parents, there are also ample opportunities for them to enjoy the luxury Maldives resort’s iconic swings for themselves (in a safe environment, of course).
At the kids club, there are two hugely popular outdoor swings that overlook the kids pool and trampoline and form part of the monkey bars and jungle gym. These swings - made from wood and ropes - are firm favourites and children love to twist the ropes and spin around, giving themselves a fast, 360º view of the entire outdoor kids club area.
When you book one of the Retreat Beach Pool villas at this special luxury Maldives resort, you don’t have to go far to enjoy the views of the sparkling lagoon from a swing in paradise - these rooms are complete with lagoon-facing hammocks right outside your door. Enhance a light swing-session with your favourite book, a moreish snack or exotic cocktail and enjoy another gorgeous day in one of the most coveted destinations in the world.
The Sanctuary Pool Villa
Do you like the idea of swinging in the most exclusive and Instagram-worthy spots at this luxury resort in the Maldives? Then the Sanctuary Pool Villa is a sensational accommodation choice. At this three-bedroomed villa, the swing is attached to a palm tree that leans over the villa’s private pool which allows you to soar above the water. And the best part? You can launch yourself into the pool from the swing itself. This exclusive family villa is one-of-a-kind and the only villa with its own poolside hammock and swing.
