Kandolhu is the best resort we have ever stayed in. We chose Kandolhu because it's uniquely positioned as an intimate island with the trappings of a larger resort. Our 7 night stay was filled with amazing sunsets, crystal clear water, top shelf food and world class service. The house reef contains an abundance of life. Daily sightings of turtles, sharks...

We were met by the staff and speedboat as our sea-plane landed 10 minutes from the hotel jetty. At the jetty more staff greeted us and escorted us to our room where we were effortlessly checked...

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,...

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...
