Kandima Maldives is celebrated for its abundant amenities, such as a variety of dining options and engaging activities, alongside an exceptional spa that guests frequently commend. The resort's staff garners high praise for their outstanding service, contributing to unforgettable experiences. Travelers enjoy the pristine cleanliness of the rooms and public spaces, and delight in the vibrant atmosphere, accentuated by live music.

Amazing accommodation, and very decent food. The weather showed its good and bad sides (the sun burns very intense, event when obscured by clouds, better use sun-protection cream right after you set foot on the island). Very friendly and helpful staff, I recommend watching the sunrise also taking a walk through the path in the forest (you can always use the local bus if you get tired)

Hotel's Favorite
Wow! Had the most idyllic 10 days at Kandima Maldives. Arrived by sea plane which was a fabulous experience and stayed in a Beach Studio waking up every morning to views of the pristine beach and beautiful blue Indian Ocean. Our studio was bright and spacious with a lovely bathroom and shower. It was cleaned and serviced daily to a high standard by our suite attendant Samih. We enjoyed the snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding and have seen sharks, rays, turtles whilst standing on the beach. The 2 pools at either end of the island were amazing with great pool bars. All the restaurants serve excellent food and every single member of staff were helpful and friendly. I really cannot fault this place and will most definitely return to this paradise!

This is rated as a 5 star resort, and it does not disappoint. The cleanliness is second to none. Staff are very friendly, helpful and above all professional, they can’t do enough for you. The beach is immaculately clean, white sands, blue sea as you’d expect from the Maldives. Plenty of sun beds and beach bean bags, everything you need to chill out. Restaurants are good, with a good variety of offerings. The Breeze bar has entertainment nightly and the staff are friendly and accommodating, offering a wide range of drinks and cocktails. Only criticisms I have are; the water pressure and shower temperatures are a bit ropey and Flavours restaurant need to seriously address their coffee making facilities. The 2 machines were always broken causing massive queues, which lets the restaurant down. Otherwise all good, would definitely revisit.

Rooms are well located. Sunset side ok, sunrise side you can't swim. Although we booked two pool villas next to each other with confirmation it still didn't work out. Service nice but extremely inefficient and slow. Few employees make a difference like Razel. Souvenir store: completely overpriced, beware. Cleanliness not the best. Mice and rats by the bar and in front of the house at night. Buffet: food quality at the level of a canteen. Other restaurants good but not outstanding. In summary, price-performance ratio not reasonable.

We came here for our honey moon, amazing place, the whole island its the hotel, since you arrive in the airplane, you go to all the restaurants, up to the rooms, every thing works perfectly. The only bad side, would be to many children in every place, there should be a pool for adults for have some space. It has 5 restaurants 2 buffets and 3 a la carte, we had the all inclusive package which was perfect, because as the whole island its the hotel you cannot go to the "store outside the hotel" and buy a cheap meal or a drink, everything its inside and its not cheap.

Kandima Resort is a true paradise, and our week there was nothing short of magical. We can't recommend it enough for couples seeking a romantic escape in a tropical paradise. The breathtaking views, pristine beaches, and overall ambiance created the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. Each dinner at the three specialized restaurants was a culinary adventure, with the quality of food and service consistently exceeding our expectations. Huge thanks to Manjula at Forbidden Bar and Breeze Bar for his incredible drinks and the entire staff for making our vacation unforgettable!
