My husband and I were there end of January- February 2015. It was part of our honeymoon and a month of traveling from Africa to Sri Lanka. This was our real honeymoon where we got to relax, slow down and recharge. The couple that manage Kandolhu, Laura and Mark are amazing. Friendly, professional and 100% on top of everything. They...

Recently spent 5 days at this resort and could not fault it. Location, facilities, food, activities were excellent. Recommend the all inclusive food and beverage package. Staff were friendly and professional. Special thanks to Razan and Erica. Highly recommend this well kept secret; already planning our return visit.

My Husband and I went there for our honeymoon and I'll say it is suitable for couples who want personal time away from any crowd. It is a tiny and beautiful island. Took a couple to minutes to walk the circumference of the island. Cleanliness of the island is impeccable. Staff are always sweeping & always cleaning. They will clean... More

We have just returned from our second visit to this island paradise. We thought that, by returning this year, we would get this island "out of our system". Far from it, it has only served to make us vow to return . The resort is now a little more than a year old and the vegetation has grown to make... More

Kandohlu kandolhu we miss you! This was our first visit and were blown away by this lovely little island. We had simply wanted to try snorkelling a different reef but chanced upon a wonderful, truly decadent (without planning for it to be so) experience. On arrival we were met at the jetty by both Mark and Laura who manage the... More

Kandolhu island truly is AMAZING, this has been the best holiday we have ever had! We did a lot of research on all the different islands in the Maldives and chose Kandolhu Island for our honeymoon. What attracted us most to the island was the small number of villas, the choice of restaurants (we thought this island had the best... More

The trip of a lifetime! After researching many Maldives resorts online, my partner and I selected Kandolhu Island for our honeymoon in March 2015. We were initially drawn to the island because of the small number of guests, all-inclusive package and overall reviews. Although we have not visited any other Maldivian resorts, we cannot imagine how they could top the... More

First visit to the Maldives for my wife and I and there are just so many resorts/islands/hotels to choose from that it took an age to settle on Kandolhu but we are so glad we did! Was a toss up between Baros, LUX, Velassaru and Lilly Beach. So glad we chose Kandolhu, especially if you want to avoid the big... More

Be aware - a holiday on Kandolhu Island is likely to result in severe KWS (Kandolhu Withdrawal Syndrome) ! We returned a couple of weeks ago and have come to the conclusion that this acute affliction can only be fully dispelled by a return trip in the not too distant future..... We had an 11-night stay split between a Duplex... More

As part of a significant birthday year for my wife I wanted to take us both back to The Maldives and to make sure that we touched the heights of previous resorts we had visited. With great help from the ladies at Kuoni we established that our last visit could possibly only be bettered by a stay at Kandolhu. Oh,... More
