What an amazing holiday! What an amazing place! What an amazing Club Med Team!

Your holiday can only get better, when Club Med Kani puts a personal touch right from the start by having someone from your home country greet you at the pier and walk you through an introduction. Thank you, Vernon or GO (Gentle Officer), all the way from Cape Town. As we were leaving the pier, we saw a baby shark and lots of fish – my son was super thrilled.

Our rooms were ready, and we were all given bracelet tags to enter our rooms. We were tired, so we spent the first few hours just sleeping off our jet lag.

Our rooms were two conjoined upper rooms overlooking the beach. Amazing. There are also single-story apartment rooms and overwater bungalows. The beds we had were king size beds and there was a smaller bed for a little in each room as well. Beds were very comfortable. There is a bar fridge and a shower in each room. We had a balcony as well. The satellite tv was very limited, but there is far too much to do and see to spend it in your room. Rooms are fully airconditioned. Watch out that the geckos don’t come into your room at night. There are no irons or ironing boards in your room, but there was a room with one outside and free. The washing machine uses tokens that you must buy. All the rooms have access to WIFI.

Breakfast is complete and caters for most tastes. Bacon and eggs, cereals, porridge, fresh fruit, pancakes, lots of types of bread, etc. The staff are very friendly, and you will probably build a relationship with the servers or chefs, who will remember your favorites and try to ensure that next time this is put aside for you to enjoy. Thanks to Mannan, Prasad and Sumon, you really made the experience even more memorable.

Lunch buffet always had the following types of food: Italian (pasta and pizza), American (burger, fries, hotdogs), Japanese, Chinese, sometimes traditional Maldivian, and Indian as well as a salad bar.

Dinner buffet is themed, but the ones that are outdoors are amazing. Our first dinner outside, had a Cirque de Soleil type show, put on by the staff and it certainly was spectacular. There is another restaurant closer to the theatre, Kandu, which is al le carte with a limited menu – bookings are required but is not charged if you have the all-inclusive package. However, the view from this restaurant is breath taking.

There are various activities that we took part in. My daughter tried the scuba diving lesson and even though she was scared the female instructor made her very comfortable. She really enjoyed it and can’t wait to try scuba diving when she gets get to SA. The underwater views were amazing. They also have snorkeling classes as well. You can also arrange an excursion to go to a lagoon to scuba and snorkel, but we didn’t get a chance to do this. My daughter went on the kid’s club for two days, she is a teenager, and she had a fabulous time and made some new friends. My son, who is 6, decided not to try the one for his age, but spent most of the time in the pool and on the beach collecting shells. He saw several baby sharks when we walked along the beach and lots of other small fish including rays – all harmless. He can’t wait to go back. We went kayaking, but there are jet ski’s, flyboard and sailboats to also try. You can also try a trip to turtle island or some of the other excursions but note that some may be expensive. We really wanted to try the submarine ride, but this was too expensive. There are various shows each night, with a different theme which are put on by the GMs. However, each was spectacular. I also, tried out the soccer with the other GMs and GOs, including the resort manager – it was tiring, but wonderful. There are also beach volleyball and soccer games, Zumba almost everyday, water aerobics, ping pong, early morning runs, and so much more! If all of this is just too much and you just want to relax: find a lovely hammock and just fall asleep under the palm trees (there are a number around the island); just find a sea swing and chill; float in the pool; or take a quiet relaxing walk along the beach. Or maybe just enjoy one of the refreshing drinks (you must try the Virgin Chi Chi) and chat to one of the friendly bartenders like Adama.

Can’t wait to go back!

One of the most beautiful places I've been in. The coral and marine life is so diverse....just stunning with many species to be seen.
Most importantly, the amazing staff....they made our stay welcoming and without them, club med kani would be just a name.
Head chef Ravin is amazing with his kindness.
Kliven and Farreh (I think that's the spelling) for the energy they bring in daily...they make the place amazing. Without them, the place would be different.
Ihusan for his hospitality and great people skill.....I truly enjoyed the insight he shared on Maldives. Just a kind,gentle and patient. Truly a star employee.
Vernon for giving us a lending hand whenever needed.
Just a bunch of amazing staff overall...from chefs to waiters to everyone there.
Thank you for being so wonderful.
