From start to finish every aspect of the Kandolhu experience delivered...the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, the food was impeccable, the drinks were delicious, the rooms are very well designed and comfortable, the island is spotless, and the attention to detail was second to no other hotel/resort I have stayed at before. We could not have asked for a...

We have had a truly wonderful stay at Kandolhu over the last 10 days and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Marc, Laura and the team are so attentive and we'd have to say it's their level of service that really makes the difference. We stayed in an ocean pool villa and even though there were days when the weather wasn't...

The perfect match for our honeymoon. We spent 11 romantic days on this georgous island which is very small but extremely beautiful. Although our expectations were already quite high (due to the price) the stay at Kandolhu did even exceed them. Especially worth mentioning is our snorkeling experience at Kondolhu. We met turtles, sharks and tons of other fish, which...

We spent our honeymoon on Kandolhu and loved every minute. We stayed there from August 29th until September 10th 2016. Kandolhu is very small, consisting of only 30 villas. Until then, we had only been to bigger islands in the Maldives (Kuramathi, Atmosphere Kanifushi), but after experiencing Kandolhu, we’d always choose Kandolhu again. Since we stayed more than two weeks,...

We have just returned from five nights at Kandolhu, and can confirm it is every bit as good as the previous reviews make it out to be, if not better.

We just returned after a truly excellent week at Kandolhu. We have visited Maldives 6 or 7 times before and whilst every visit has been a great experience, this stands out from our view. It has everything you would expect from a 5* Maldivian island in terms of snorkelling, diving, spa, bar etc. The accommodation is just great and of...

Kandolhu was the perfect place for our five-night honeymoon in Maldives. Highlights for us were the bathtub in the ocean pool villa, the fabulous spa, and the delicious food at Bonsai and Sea Grill.
