A lovely small intimate island where you truly feel you have the whole island to yourself. Stunning colonial style houses with plenty of privacy. 'The Living Room' offers all day breakfast dining with no time restrictions and serves some of the best Sri Lankan prawn curry! Great spot of snorkelling at Gulhifushi where there is also a refreshment bar and serviced beach. We really enjoyed being able to dine at Various restaurants over at Anantara Veli and Dhigu.
