Located on a private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Kandolhu Maldives Resort boasts beautiful stretches of white sand beaches, lush tropical vegetation, and one of the most colorful reefs in the world. Villas are situated over the water and offer stunning views of the sunrise and sunset. Just because families are vacationing on a private island doesn’t mean they shouldn’t expect to stay in the lap of luxury. Each villa comes complete with iPod docking stations, flat-screen televisions, DVD players, minibars, and soaker tubs. Four restaurants provide a variety of dining options, and guests can even catch their dinner on a guided fishing excursion.

I went with my partner and had an incredible time. We stayed 2 Nights at the ocean villa and 2 Nights at beach villa. Both were excellent. Ocean villa was of course fantastic and a must try, while the beach villa was more convenient. The reef unfortunately has been bleached abit, but is still full of life and turtles. We spent each day snorkelling and truly has to be the best water themed holiday I ever had with crystal clear water and an amazing reef. If you are daring enough, swim to the edge of the reef into the deeper waters and see the bigger fish, and the occasional shark cruising by. The staff was great and food is amazing. Go with the full board meal plan especially if you are a big eater. Lastly special thanks to Mazin and the water sports staff. We went out with Mazin for fishing excursion, sunset cruise and Manta Ray excursion. He took care of us and made us feel safe the whole time, especially since my girlfriend is not a strong swimmer. Great guy, fantastic staff and service overall by everyone at Kandolhu. Two thumbs up!
This tiny island is just amazing. So relaxing and calm. All the staff is superfriendly and caring. It doesn’t matter where you go- the restaurants, the beach bar, diving center, SPA... everyone’s just lovely.
We went snorkelling everyday, cause the house reef is filled with everything you could wish for: turtles, various reef fish, rays and small sharks....
My husband went diving three times and he loved it. One day we booked a Manta ray snorkelling Trip and this was just awesome!
My husband and I spent 10 days on Kandolhu and we will go back for sure as soon as possible.
