Overview

Set in the Maldives’ dreamy Dhaalu Atoll, the Kandima resort appeals to families, couples and groups with a plethora of bars, restaurants and a variety of spacious studios and oceanfront villas. The many on-site activities include water sports, tennis, football and fitness classes. You can also swim in one of the Maldives’ longest outdoor pools, get creative at the on-site art studio, and wind down at the spa. Meanwhile, little ones can make memories at the kids’ club and splash playground.

Kandima is set on a two-mile long island in Dhaalu Atoll, bordered by pristine white beaches and a natural blue lagoon. A coral reef is around five minutes away by boat; and you can book a variety of excursions to numerous nearby dive sites, including the famous Vaanee Corner, which is around 8 minutes away, and home to reef sharks, sea, turtles and a variety of coral fish. You can reach the island resort with a 30-minute flight from Male International Airport, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride, or a direct 40-minute seaplane ride.

The 264 spacious studios and villas feature large floor-to-ceiling windows, neutral colour schemes, hardwood floors and ocean-inspired textiles. Stay along the beachfront in a standard Studio with lagoon views or choose a Beach Villa with a whirlpool tub – some of which include a private pool. Alternatively, you can book an overwater Aqua Villa, which provides direct access to the lagoon, or you can enjoy the best of both worlds in a sophisticated Ocean Pool Villa which is partially set on the beach and above the water.
