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

Lovely hotel on a stunning Island. The room and facilities were very good, the room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed during our stay. The mini bar had an excellent selection. The restaurants were superb, high standard of food at all times and no complaints there. The only thing that let it down slightly, and not enough... More

We badly needed the most incredible holiday to unwind, relax and recharge. Kandolhu is where we found it! From the moment we arrived in Male, to when we left what had become our island haven, my partner and I had been looked after like a king and queen. We spent 4 months looking for the ideal holiday. We read countless... More
