We stayed in a beach room, the quirkiest thing I have ever experienced was the open air bathroom. I didn't think I was going to like it when we arrived, thinking about spiders etc, but, we never saw any creepy crawlies the whole time we were there. Room basic decoration, but, every thing you need. The food was above our... More

The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the same goes for the F&B staff. Two people I'd like to highlight are the Bolivian/Japanese Guest Experience Champion and the Sri Lankan Bokkuraa coffee club restaurant manager (Please pardon my 'goldfish'... More

This 4 star resort has everything you would get at the surrounding resorts at very affordable rates (prices start from just US$208++ per night). Add... More

Fearing the possibility of our toddler ripping through the romantic, honeymoon-oriented atmosphere at other Maldivian resorts, we selected the Kandooma for its family-friendliness. As it turned out, we'd made the right choice. What we loved: - The resort is gorgeous; packed with greenery and populated with Flying Foxes, lizards, and crabs, to keeping things interesting. - The staff is faultless... More
