Me and my friends stayed in Kandima for a very short period but our stay has been the best. We love the atmosphere, the vibe and friendliness of the staff. Really appreciate Moosa from reception for going the extra mile to fulfill all our needs and always checking up on us. We would love to return soon ❤

Whatever you do, please do not listen to the negative reviews you are reading. I believe these people may need to take up meditation to find some inner peace. There was absolutely nothing to complain about, the staff are unbelievable at what they do, always on hand if you ever need anything. We did thorough research before we selected this hotel as I was feeling anxious about travelling during a pandemic and they put my mind at ease as soon as we got there. They’re handling the pandemic the best way they can by temperature checking, offering hand sanitiser to each and every guest before they enter the restaurants. We came as a family with our little boy (4) and he absolutely loved it. There are plenty of things for the whole family to do, highly recommend hiring a bike it’s a great way to explore the island - the buses come roughly every 10 mins which was amazing and they always stop out of courtesy to see you if you’d like a lift! The island is perfection, the waters are crystal clear, the beaches are super Sandy and cleaned every single day - the cleaners are cleaning rooms daily and handle everything with a smile. We honestly couldn’t of selected a better resort, the place is paradise on earth and we were in a little dream bubble for 12 nights. Dolphin boat trip was out of this world and the sunsets are oh so dreamy. Yoga was amazing & the instructor was great, I felt totally refreshed after the class. The food is fantastic and I’ve never personally tasted a curry so good in my life! They seem to employ very similar people as all staff members are kind, smiley and extremely helpful Thank you Kandima for being so kind to us and handling everything with such grace especially during a pandemic. We would like to personally like to thank Mizy at Flavour she was absolutely fantastic at her job and so so sweet! Moosa, thank you for everything, you topped our holiday off nicely with extra sprinkles on top :) Jillu at the bar, thanks for always asking what we would like to drink 10/10 service. Nabeeh was also fantastic and Inattey at Reception. We hope to see you all again in the near future! From Natalie, Ben & Quincey (vacated room 450 on 08/01) Take care all and stay safe!

This is my first time to visit Kandima. I knew there was a Hong Kong celebrity group has visited here before and it’s very instagramable. Thanks Rio for your hospitality and invitation. Finally i have chance to visit Kandima and celebrate my friends birthday. Unlike majority resorts in Maldives, their brand and style is Ins, fresh, and Morden. It is what I feel very different and I like it. Staying in Kandima never get you bored as there are lots of activities you can do. Spa 🧖‍♀️ - heal therapy is very nice . Photoshoot - energetic photographer from Snap studio. Coffee painting - thank you Zima for your kind patient for sharing us Arts. Everyday is so busy because we only stay 3 nights ... Food is absolutely stunning even in main restaurant zest which you entitle in your package. No matter breakfast lunch and dinner, they provide variety of options: Asian, Indian, western, Russian food... fresh, food,tasty You also cannot miss their Sea dragon Restaurant. Food is so Asian taste and the interior design is Morden Chinese style with the “aquarium” of live lobster, snapper , etc... i have never thought I could find one in Maldives 🇲🇻 In shorts sleep well eat well play well in the last three night . All staff is so friendly and greet us .the only suggestion is the island is too huge, if bicycle is complementary instead of rental, it will be easier to explore the whole island . Thank you Kandima team to make our birthday trip memorable
