What a special place made even better by the people who work there. Firstly a massive thank you to Asham who was extremely kind to us the entire trip whenever we were dining. He also made our last meal at Smoked that extra special by going the extra mile with our table decoration and incredible service. He made the entire trip that extra special. Also a big thank you to Obu who set up my proposal package dining experience and did a fantastic job. Both are an amazing asset to the resort. All the food at the buffet and the three main restaurants was faultless, exceeding expectations every step of the way. The staff who cleaned the rooms were very respectful and very good at what they do. The island is kept immaculate with staff working around the clock to make sure everything is up to a very high standard. Could not recommend this resort enough.

We had so much fun here at kandima, we had Half board meal plan which was enough for us, they had wonderful menu which kind of changed each day for breakfast and dinner. Our first night was at aqua villa which was a different experience itself then we moved to beach villa with direct excess to the sea, i loved the toiletries, thank you kandima for showing us the dolphins, not promising but will surely come again 😇

Kandima is a precious pearl in the ocean. I had never imagined this place would be so good!. My favorite place was the breeze bar! Stay in watertop villa with jacuzi was a lifetime experience. The beach studio villa was also great. Lots of activities to keep you busy here. Had opted for half board,the buffet was great with a large variety . Hop on hop off bus service makes exploring the island a breeze. Would rate 5 star for cleanliness, hospitality and management.

It was our honeymoon trip to Maldives stayed at Kandima for 5 days. Weather wasn’t promising but what made our stay worthwhile was the staffs around the resorts. Namely, Azeez the Assistant Manager of Aquaholics. We weren’t sure of what to do about on the island till we met Azeez. He was approachable and friendly. Throughout most of the activities we did, he guided us and took care of our welfare. One of the activities was night snorkeling, it was our first time snorkel in the night. He ensured our safety was well taken care of us throughout the time we in the sea. Not only being professional, he went beyond his reach to made some arrangement that was impossible to possible. One night after our big game fishing, he called his colleague to arrange a dinner for the catch that we caught during the day, where he knows we didn’t have any plans of dinner yet. His looks might be arrogant but he is soft heart, he was deeply sad upon our departure off the island. He said, “the weather is raining now, because you guys are leaving, which makes me sad”. We are deeply thankful for his service provided in Kandima Maldives because people like him made us want to visit the resort again. Thank you Azeez for going to the infinity and beyond. Syahirran & Amira

The experience began right at airport pick-up, resort staff was there to guide us at every step. A warm welcome at the resort took away all the tiredness we had from more than 24 hour of travel. Staff was there to give a quick overview of resort and facilities, and they made sure lunch was served even though we arrived at a post lunch hour. Throughout our stay, Kandima and its amazing staff made sure they keep up with high expectations they had set on the very first day. The staff at Kandima is super helpful and friendly. We went to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, Kandima and it’s staff added the special effects to make the day even better. With excellent services and facilities, good food was a cherry on the top - amazing Chefs made sure to accommodate special requests for little one. A big thank you to Reea, Hakeem, Jillu, Soraya and many more for going above and beyond and making our stay special. Kandima (Maldives) is definitely My Kind of Place, and I highly recommend it.

We were in the Maldives for the first time! After walking to the uninhabited part of the island in rainy weather, you realize with the naked eye that the islands are absolutely not paradise, they are frightening and dangerous, but it is people who create the paradise we are familiar with on the island! Kandima coped with this task with a five-plus: absolutely everything that was on the island created a feeling of heavenly pleasure. The room for rest (we lived in the Sky view) is spacious, clean and pleasant, only a clothes dryer was missing (for swimwear, shorts). The staff is at the highest level, everyone is very polite, will always come to the rescue and friendly. I would like to pay special attention to Hakeem. He is a very sensitive, open and kind person! Many thanks to him! The reception staff also wants to say thank you, you have made our vacation much easier in terms of organization and development on the island. Recreation and relaxation areas: swimming pools are clean and comfortable temperature, cafes, bars and restaurants surprised with a fairly large and extensive selection of food - European, local Maldivian and Asian (this is all I can remember so far). Everywhere is cleanliness, order and again I can't help but notice about the excellent work of the staff: courtesy, kindness and mutual assistance. I would also like to mention about live music in bars and restaurants, indeed, it is much more pleasant to listen to unobtrusive light music than constant noise. Getting around the island: you can rent a bike, you can walk along specialized paths, walk along the ocean coast or take a local bus. There are even specialized stops, which is very nice and adds some such sense of movement. Buses always stop when they pass near you, the driver asks if you want to get on and where you need to get to. We personally did not need to repeat the place where we had to be dropped off, the driver always remembers where to stop. It is especially pleasant that at night, when approaching people, drivers turn off the lights, thereby not blinding the guests. Thank you for this function! Spotlights at night creates an atmosphere of chamberness, comfort and isolate of people's lives from the life of the local fauna (in a good way). The eyes quickly get used to the darkness and all become very comfortable. And the most important thing is the ocean! Of course, he is simply irresistible! In the morning, the staff cleans the ocean coast from garbage, the tractor plows the sand for looseness, and the ocean itself amazes with its azure. We were on a diving trip and our instructor was Ivan. I would like to say a special thank you to him! Thanks to his professionalism, easy approach in training and humor, we had the best and most beautiful diving. Ivan is a very nice and friendly person! Thanks! In the end, I would also like to say about the flora and fauna of the island: a lot of tropical plants and flowers in a very well-groomed condition (I finally saw some life-size plants, and not as small as they stand on my windowsill at home), flying foxes (incredibly beautiful to be honest), crustaceans and crabs, and also, birds - everything is harmonious and pleasing to the eye. The first impression of the country is usually based on the first place you were in. For us, it was Kadima, which showed how easy, beautiful, delicious and enjoyable a vacation can be! Thanks to all the hotel staff!
