My wife and I spent 10 days on this fantastic island together with some friends and it was everything we were hoping for and a lot, lot more. The island, service and food was fantastic. Such a relaxing holiday made even better by the friendly and helpful staff. Faultless in ever way.

Absolute bliss. Small island, providing an intimate, luxurious resort catering mainly for couples or families with older children. Only saw other people at sundowner or meal times. Comfortable and spacious, well equipped accommodation. Stayed in Beachfront duplex villa with pool & an ocean villa on a full board basis. We didn't take full advantage of the full board offerings and... More

We are in the second step of our honey moon, after a safari in Kenya. This is a unique experience! It seems we have an island just for us. It is small and cute. The hotel is small and luxury, and the treatment is really personal. Food is great, and what to say about the environment! We have found the... More

Kandolhu is a little gem in the indian ocean. We were in all inclusive and it was fantastic! Our wine refrigeragor was always full of champagne, rose, red and white wines. We ate in a la carte restaurants, the food was amazing! You can choose anything you can imagine, jumbo prawn, wild quail, scallop, etc. We had a dinner in... More

After lots of umming and ahing we decided on Kandolhu as our honeymoon spot and I think we picked perfectly! We arrived one morning after a long trip from London, a hot seaplane transfer and a 10min boat transfer and were welcomed by a smiling team, cold facecloths and cold water. Our check in was effortless and we were taken... More

We have recently returned from a nine-night stay at Kandolhu - a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing, and memorable nine nights – and one that we would repeat in an instant! The island is small, private and beautiful. We snorkelled a lot – the reef was great, and we saw many turtles and a huge variety of fishes. Despite being the "rainy"... More

Considering our honeymoon was going to be our most important and expensive holiday to date we spent a lot of time researching where to go and took reviews very seriously. Once we’d decided on the Maldives, we had to choose between the hundreds of resorts on offer. As we looked through website after website, Kandolhu emerged as the obvious choice... More

My wife and I spent 2 weeks at this stunning little island in July 2016. We have visited the Maldives on four previous occasions. We choose Kandolhu because we wanted a very quiet secluded vacation. This is truly a little piece of paradise, the island itself is beautiful, the rooms are great, we choose a jacuzzi beach villa which was... More
