The island is small and personal but the hotel is luxurious and stunning. We have been to the Maldives before and many other luxury boutique hotels around the world but the is the first one we both agreed we would return to!! We stayed for 5 nights and 6 days in July. The duplex villa we stayed in was situated... More

We spent the last 3 nights of our honeymoon here after 7 nights at Kuramathi and whilst Kuramathi didn't meet our expectations, Kandolhu was perfect in every way! We stayed in a Jacuzzi Beach Villa and it was beautiful, and so nice to be right on the beach. The well-stocked mini bar and wine fridge was a great addition and... More

I don't really know what I can say about this island other than, paradise does exist. We had an ocean pool villa which was definitely a wow! room on an all inclusive basis, it was fantastic, the room had everything you would ever need including iPad and Bluetooth sound bar. The bathroom is probably the best hotel bathroom I've ever... More

The service at Kandolhu was the best we have ever experienced. The staff was always attentive, remembered our names and what we liked to eat, and were very friendly. The service was in total a very good experience. We stayed the first 4 nights at a Ocean Pool Villa, and this was truly amazing. At night we would lie in... More

This review is one of the simplest I have ever had to write. Kandolhu Island and everything that comes with it is, in a single word, unbeatable. Having been fortunate enough to have visited other places in the Maldives, I thought it would be easy to compare Kandolhu to other islands. However, it is incomparable. Met by the lovely Marc...

This is the hardest review We have ever had to write as when you find somewhere so beautiful and amazing it's hard to put it into words plus we wanted to keep it our little secret!! Having been to the Maldives before and loved it, previously to Kuramathi which is the sister to Kandolhu, we really wanted to return but... More

After a long research we decided to spend part of our honeymoon at Kandolhu and after reading all excellent reviews we had very high expectations. From the arrival at Kandolhu we felt that we made the right choice. Laura, Marc and their team welcomed us with a soft drink, we were able to check in in our villa, they gave... More

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
