The only way to describe Kandolhu Island is to use every superlative in the dictionary - and then invent a few more. We've visited quite a few islands in the Maldives over the past 20 years. Some could be recommended for the diving and snorkelling, others for their facilities and cuisine. But Kandolhu has it all - and in spades!... More

We just got back from a 12 night stay at Kandolhu Island. It was our first time in the Maldives and it did not disappoint! We were very picky when it came to choosing an island as we wanted a small, private, luxurious and modern resort with NO children. We were very impressed the minute we arrived on the island... More

Kandolhu is an absolutely amazing spot to retreat to and enjoy great service, wonderful food and wine and the serenity of a small resort on an island in the middle of nowhere. Getting to the island from Australia is a trek. From Brisbane, it is a flight to Singapore, then to Male, then a 35 minutes seaplane flight, with a... More

Absolutely lovely place. Practically perfect, the only little thing that let it down for me was that the pool in the duplex pool villa had a few broken tiles and a grubby scum line (easily repaired) and that we had to speak to a gardener who was sheltering down the side of the villa and was continually doing that horrible...

I booked this holiday a long time ago and before travelling emailed the resort several times with questions and requests. Laura always replied very promptly and did everything possible to make our honeymoon extra special !!! On arrival we were shown to our first room which was a beach villa. The room was lovely and had a stunning beach I... More

We have just returned from a week at the beautiful Kandolhu Island which was nothing short of amazing. The excellent service and attention to detail provided by Laura and Mark who manage the Island and their team just reinforced our love for Maldives and in particular Kandolhu. We are lucky enough to have visited the Maldives several times over many... More

Where to even begin? We just got back from an 8 night stay for our honeymoon. Initially, we were concerned that spending 8 nights on such a small island would get boring, but we couldn't have been more wrong! If you are looking for a small, quiet, luxurious but low key (incredible food and service, but it's ok to show... More

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.
