I stayed for 4 nights at this resort in the first week of January with my wife and the overall stay was very relaxing and was great fun. The resort organises airport transfers by speedboat and this is the only way to get to the resort after landing in Male. Upon landing in Male, a member of staff from the... More

Kandooma was simply put a true paradise. It is a small island that you can walk around in around 25 min and is about 40-min by speed boat away from the airport at Malé. The bungalows are very beautiful and I suggest to take one that allows you to access the beach directly (the water bungalows are not neccessary). The... More

We visited for a week in January , from the moment you step onto the transfer boat you are looked after in a way that is 100% perfection, all the staff can't do enough for you always smiling and pleasant , the rooms are spotlessly clean with outdoor showers all fitted with the highest quality fittings.

After constantly reading reviews and looking at photos in anticipation of our long awaited honeymoon due to various health and family issues we can't hold back our excitement of coming to Kandooma Maldives on 22/02/16 to swim, surf, eat, drink, scuba then eat and drink some more.
