From Check-in to Check out, everything was just great. No problem at all. As soon as we came out of the airport, the airport counter attendant was there to receive us. We were allotted our room at the airport. It is nearly 45 minutes boat ride from the airport to Kandooma. The

You should be careful while making a booking for this hotel. While making my booking I clearly told at the reservation desk that I am looking for a booking for 2 adults and 2 children and they said that 2 room beach villa will be fine but when I received the reservation

Dear Rajan B, Thank you for your feedback of your experience with our resort which was limited to the booking process only and for allowing us the opportunity to address your concerns. As you are aware, enforcing a maximum number of guests per room is a common practice by many hotels and resorts. This is to ensure comfort and a total experience of the guest accommodation. At the point of confirmation, the resort Reservations team followed standard protocol and offered the best available accommodation option based on the ages of the children. I feel that it is important to note that following your feedback, your booking was cancelled immediately and you didn’t incur any charge. Rajan B, my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused, and I appreciate your feedback. I certainly hope that the above concerns communicated will not deter from your future stays with the brand. Best regards Joseph Della Gatta General Manager

Hi - what is the weather like in October please. Thank you
Hi , October was pleasant and we had a good time. Although It did get cloudy for a day with a bit of rain but that did not bother us much as the weather got better with clear and sunny sky. But I would recommend to see the weather forecast during your travel dates before making the bookings (just as a precaution). Hope you have a wonderful trip.

It's much cheaper to book with Maafushi based transfer service. I can recommend icomtours Maafushi They can pick you up at the airport and drop to Holiday Inn Kandooma.

"Try and choose the Sea view villas"
"garden view villa is best in the price.."
"if you stay in a over water villa, try to avoid villas 64-66-68-70 and 72 as they face a local island and swimming options are limited."
"The chalet facing the other island could be noisy as you can hear the noise from the other island i.e. kids playing, boats, etc."
"You need to stay in a overwater villa."
