We had an absolutely fantastic stay on Kandolhu over the 2016 New Year period. Firstly a huge thank you to everyone on Trip Advisor who helped me select this place. It could not have been better. The rooms, the food and the activities were just what we were hoping for - even though the weather wasn't exactly ideal. The mini... More

Tens time on the Maldives. Kandolhu was awesome. We were on super all inclusive which can be quite dissapointing. But the food and free wines were excellent. Brand new fitness center. The hole resor was rebuild 2 years ago. 98% of the house reef was destroyed, but you can see the most wonderful regrowth. All the fish are still there.... More

This was our first trip to the Maldives having had this island recommended to us by Kuoni. From the moment we landed at the little jetty where we were presented with a glass of fresh juice adorned with an orchid until we left at the end of our stay our expectations were exceeded. We had one of the duplex ocean... More

We stayed on Kandolhu for 10 nights at the end of January to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary and had the best time ever! Everything about the island is fantastic! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the totally amazing staff were so courteous and kind and couldn't do enough for us. The island is a little... More

This really is a little gem of an island.... and we are so looking forward to returning next week-end for a much needed break! This will be our 3rd visit - something we have never done before; and we have been lucky enough to stay in some amazing places around the world. Kandohlu is just so special; it's hard to... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks at Kandolhu and there are not enough superlatives to describe our visit. We stayed in an Ocean Pool Villa surrounded by the turquoise sea, watching turtles, dolphins and snorkelling from our own steps amid a myriad of beautiful fish – Paradise! We enjoyed many of the excursions, Sunset Cruise, Desert Island, Sandbar and... More

This was a special birthday trip for my wife after a long and tough year so research was very careful and expectations very high. An amazing 10 days where the team accommodated our every wish with charm, enthusiasm and generosity! We had a duplex villa which I would highly recommend as it had the evening sun and masses of space,... More

We returned from Kandolhu Island a week ago. Myself and my partner both agreed that this was definitely the best holiday that we have ever had. Whilst at Kandolhu we celebrated my partner's special milestone birthday. We have been to the Maldives twice before a number of years ago. For this particular holiday we wanted to go to a small...

We spent 2 weeks in Kandolhu between Dec 2015 and Jan 2016 and we enjoyed it very much. The island is very tiny with outstanding house reef which goes all around it. The staff is extremely friendly and kind: we felt like being home...being part of a big family... Any special request was satisfied with a smile by the Kandolhu... More

Me and my husband just came back from Kandolhu and we are still overwhelmed with everything. I am not sure if words can describe this paradise but I will give my best shot! We've been to numerous 5* hotels around the globe including Argentina, Brazil, Australia, USA, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, China and Europe and I can say that this is... More
