Holidaymakers flee £3,000-per-night luxury Maldives hotel after devastating fire

The resort, where villas cost as much as US$5,000 a night, and which is also one of the top five hotels in the world on TripAdvisor, will remain closed for the foreseeable future, although the management hopes to reopen later this year.

Nevertheless, Gili Lankanfushi is also in touch with those who are booked in for future stays, and has promised to help with rearranging travel dates or providing refunds.

David Stepetic, the resorts General Manager, said: “I want to commend the bravery of our Gili staff for prioritising the well-being of our guests and calmly escorting them to safety as soon as the alarm was raised. And to express our deep gratitude to the firefighters from the Maldives National Defence Force who were able to contain the fire.”
