What can one say about paradise? A place you always wanted to be? Where the chefs are French & Indian, the mechanics are German, the policemen are British, the lovers are Italian and it is all organized by the Swiss. The first is the truth and there is not much more to say about such a wonderful kitchen. All people... More

Beautiful location and relaxed atmosphere? Tick. Peace and tranquillity? In abundance. Comfortable accommodation, chic but not overstated? Absolutely. Pristine coral sands, wonderfully warm turquoise sea and fantastic house reef – all included. We returned to Kandolhu Island in August and stayed for two weeks in a Beach Villa with pool (103). With no budget restraints, we could have stayed in... More

It is difficult to convey in words just how exceptionally special Kandolhu Island is. Not only for its breathtaking tranquility and beauty, but for the overall experience of secluded yet luxurious paradise. Having spent so much time deliberating between Kandolhu and other 5* resorts, we had extremely high hopes for our final choice. It quickly became apparent that the hundreds... More

We went to Kandolhu for our honeymoon. Absolutely fantastic island, everything i dreamed of. The water villas were amazing - i loved being by the water and watching the sunsets every evening. The snorkelling around the reef is the best i have ever done, turtles, reef sharks and beautiful sea life. It is so easy to snorkel around the island,... More

After much research and spending a lot of time of tripadvisor, my fiancee and I finally decided to book a beautiful ocean pool villa at Kandolhu to celebrate our honeymoon a month from now. While many reviews are done after the stay, I felt that it was important to to recognise the effort put in by the Kandolhu Team thus... More

I just don't see how you can get better than this resort; insanely talented, wonderful, tentative and professional staff who are friendly too. The most serene, stunning, calm island. Incredible management who will go above and beyond. I stay at a lot of hotels and cannot find any faults with this one. The food is out of this world, even... More

We spent 7 nights on this beautiful island and cannot fault a single part of it. Every inch is immaculate and the service is flawless. We were fortunate enough to stay in a beach villa as well as an ocean pool villa and wow to both. These villas are designed so well, and give the feeling of complete privacy and... More

I have never experienced such relaxation as I have here. The overwater bungalo was a joy, particularly seeing sharksand turtles swim by! The were very windy - we came during the wet season - but still a delight. The staff are attentive without being overbearing and there are a range of activities available at the resort (beyond the amazing snorkling!)... More

My wife and I have recently spent 7 days on this island. We have been to the Maldives before to Mirihi and I think that overall the 2 islands are about on par. There is absolutely no doubt the food is better on Kandolhu - sensational even, with 4 good options. We visited Mirihi last year apparently before one of... More

The service from start to finish ensured we felt special, whilst feeling like the only couple on the island. The honeymoon treats of a meal on the beech, couples massage and sunset cruise ensured that this feeling never went away. The duplex pool villa was unbelievable. Spacious, luxurious and ideal for sunbathing on the beach or relaxing in seclusion. The... More
