0 Votes Hi there We typically do not experience many mosquitos during the dry season (Nov - end of April) as there is little rain water for them to breed in. We also fog the island once a week to help reduce their population further and can happily spray your room whenever required Best wishes Kandolhu Maldives

Hi Caroline We do not provide flip flops in guest villas unfortunately, though we do have bedroom slippers available. If you prefer to go bare foot however that is absolutely fine as we do not require that you wear them in our restaurants - it's very casual here! If we can help with anything else please let us know. We hope to welcome you soon Kandolhu Maldives
