Kanuhura Maldives: A luxury Gypset resort featuring Eva Sonaike

After 18 months of full renovations, Kanuhura Maldives reopened in December 2016 in a new luxury Gypset style, featuring a bohemian design concept over its unique three island experience.

And we are very proud to officially announce that the Eva Sonaike cushions and pouffes are part of this $42 Million design project and can now be spotted in the restaurant, bar spa and games room of this luxury resort!

Kanuhura Maldives, owned and managed by Sun Resorts, is a place where surreal beauty, elegance and luxury blend in harmoniously with the breathtaking nature of the Maldives Islands. It offers a tasteful celebration of luxurious island living with a sense of bliss, enhanced by vibrant colours and natural materials.

With the deft touch of former Gold Key Designer of the Year Inge Moore, President of Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) international's European division, who directed the design of some of the world’s most luxurious hotels, spas and restaurants, Kanuhura follows a Gypset concept in a uber-luxury setting.

Gypset is a new way of life, according to New York-based journalist and author Julia Chaplin, who wrote about a generation of travellers who she defined as part Gypsy, driven by freedom and escapism, and part Jetset, a reflection of their success and appreciation of the finer things in life.


With its seven restaurants and three bars, Kanuhura Maldives will make you discover various cuisines from all over the world.

And those looking for tranquillity and well-being will be able to experience one of the National Geographic Traveller World’s Best Spa 2017, Kokaa, Wellness Retreat & Spa for a unique deep relaxation uplifting body and mind.

As part of the multi-million dollar renovations, Kanuhura Maldives also boasts a new main pool area with cabanas, in-water loungers and views of the Indian Ocean, plus a separate children’s infinity pool and terrace.

Moore accomplished her mission about creating stylish interiors that nevertheless have relevance and a story to tell like Kanuhura Maldives as the resort has already been rated as one of the world's top hotel renovations by Condé Nast Traveller.
