The Kandima resort can be found in the Dhaalu Atoll and is a breath of fresh air in providing a different approach to a beachside Maldivian holiday. Its 266 stylish rooms range from the affordable and functional studios to overwater villas which offer privacy and luxury, perfect for a romantic escape. There is no shortage of things to do on the island, from art classes, cookery lessons and fitness activities to diving with hammerhead sharks, parasailing and snorkelling, and then if that all gets too much, you can treat yourself at the resort spa.
The resort can also boast the largest pool in the Maldives, measuring 100m, and arguably the biggest kid’s club.
With 10 extraordinary dining venues offering worldwide cuisines there is something for everybody, but when looking for a bit of peace and quiet the adults-only Forbidden Bar is the perfect place to end the evening.
Kandima is just a thirty-minute flight from Velana International Airport, followed by a twenty-minute boat ride. Rather than focusing on being overtly luxurious and elegant, the resort offers a relaxed feel with lots of opportunities to interact with other guests, should you want to. The 3km long beach provides plenty of shallow water for those of all ages to enjoy, or a place to relax and marvel at the lush tropical surroundings.
Our Room Pick
Our favourite room for families is the Sunset Beach Pool Villa with Swirl Pool, offering, direct beach access and a large sofa bed to watch the sunset on a private deck. The décor is modern and bright and can be summed up by the fun offered by the private swirl pool. For a more secluded bit of luxury, the Ocean Pool villas are quieter and more sophisticated, and are half over the beach and half over the water, with a private pool offering uninterrupted ocean views.
The Kandima is absolutely ideal for guests of all ages and different budgets, with families, couples, groups of friends and honeymooners all enjoying it equally. There truly is something for everyone here, and the resort offers an extremely affordable stay in the Maldives with brilliant service and amenities.
