We wanted to spend our honeymoon on the most beautiful island on earth. We looked to find a small, quiet and beautiful island - to relax and be spoiled by gentle staff. We found it ! We found Kandolhu Island, and all our expectations for the perfect honeymoon were not only met 100%, the stay exceeded anything we could have... More

Paradise. Simple as that. We stayed on Kandolhu for 9 nights for our honeymoon in June and it exceeded our expectations in every way. We stayed in an Ocean Villa which was beautifully furnished - one of the first rooms I've stayed in where the accommodation is as beautiful in reality as it is on the website photos. The restaurants... More

It's hard to write a review of a place which you truly fall in love with, without using excessive superlatives or cliches. Unfortunately I am going to have to do just that. We choose Kandolhu for our honeymoon and we couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place. Neither of us had been to the Maldives before so we put in... More

We spent 7 nights at Kandolhu at the end of May. We chose Kandolhu after extensive research for my 50th Birthday. We decided to learn to Scuba dive after reading other diving reviews and we qualified as open water divers a week before the holiday and it was absolutely worth it. We did 8 dives with the island instructors Walter... More

Our 2nd trip to Kandolhu after such a fantastic experience first time round. I used the Spa last time and it was great so used it again this time, its excellent still! With Kandolhu you have a real desert island, accommodations are limited and spread out, you can socialise if you feel the need but don't need to if you... More

We visited this island for 5 nights in May at the start of our holiday which consisted of staying at 2 islands, Kandolhu and then onto Park Hyatt for 10 nights (which I will review separately). We have visited The Maldives 5 times in total. Lily beach twice, park Hyatt and veligandu, so feel we have something to compare it... More

Brilliant box fresh 1st quality accommodation, with all the natural charm, warmth and friendliness of the Maldives. Marc & Laura's fab team had all our holiday boxes ticked. You'll definitely be very well looked after. Room design is contemporary excellence, with all the gadgets, the private pool made my holiday! It was also refreshing that the beautiful Spa offered great... More

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon last week and we miss Kandolhu Island already. It was a perfect place, more like a heaven place for us. The service were so great from the moment we reached Ibrahim Nasir Airport until we are leaving the place. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had my first... More
