We chose to stay for 2 weeks in a beach villa rather than stay for a shorter time in the more expensive water villas and it was the right choice for us. The best side of the island (amazing sunsets), wide and beautiful beach and the room was excellent. To be fair we didn't spend huge amounts of time inside,...

First time to Maldives and we were blown away by the island and all it has to offer. From the welcoming group to the amazing staff led by Mark and Laura. The island is beautiful and kept so beautifully by the gardeners constantly sweeping beaches or gardens and the cleaners are hardworking but discreet and constantly replenishing any items needed.Chefs...

Overall, this was an amazing experience to the point that I'm having a hard time readjusting to "the real world" following our return. My wife and I stayed in one of the ocean villas (sans pool) during a recent four day/five night visit to Kandolhu, and I cannot recommend this place enough to anyone who is interested in visiting the...

Hard to know where to start with my review... the warm welcome upon arrival, the fabulous service throughout, the spectacular array of fish in the reef, the attentive and professional dive masters, the delicious meals, the clean and comfortable accommodations, the ability to relax on our private little beach, the beautiful sunset cruise, ... this vacation spot was perfect in...

The place is simply extraordinary. It was the first time I traveled to the Maldives Islands and chose this Resort as it can enjoy lagoon and an extraordinary reef, I could spend hours and hours scuba diving as the seabed is impressive, turtles, fish of all colors, octopuses, Squids, large and small but harmless sharks and other species that I...

It was our third visit on this paradise and we felt like coming home! I guess most has been said from other comments already and does not have to be repeated again. Two small suggestions we would like to make though: Management should think about changing island time to one hour ahead to Male time like Veligandhu and Mirihi have...

Having done plenty of research as to where to begin our honeymoon, and having heard great things about Kandolhu, our expectations were high- And WOW! It did not disappoint. We spent the most wonderful week, being treated like royalty. The food, the standard of service, the care attention to detail- nothing is below 10/10. We spent time diving with the...

Beautiful and very private island for people who want to relax. The four à la carte-restaurants offer a great and very tasteful variety of food. The entire staff is very friendly and does everything to make you happy. I can only recommend this Island.

We visited Kandolhu from March 29th to April 2nd as the second part of a two leg journey in the Maldives (first leg was in Baros). My wife and I have been to the Maldives 3 times before staying at 3 other resorts, so we've been a bit spoilt by the Maldivian experience - there really is no other like...
