Poor 2.0
Very disappointing
The resort charged us double fee on the speedboat, when I found out, they are not responsive. It is already 2 weeks after I request them a refund. And they just told me the accounting department is checking the record. So disappointed

Water Villa Paradise
Just amazing. Stayed three nights on a water villa and had the time of our lives, saw lots of fish while snorkelling and a sting ray at night. Food at the restaurants was delicious. The transfer from Male took about four hours including wait time (we did the local plane plus boat ride). The staff was amazing. Absolutely recommend to stay here.

Kandima Stay
Great stay with the family. Our kids only wanted to go back to the Kids Club, many thanks to Iva and Muncy who looked after them. Lots of wildlife on the island, with chameleons, bats, and even sharks swimming next to our room. Just beware of the winds! We left our clothes outside to dry and they were swept into the ocean.

Amazing property, hospitable staff
Kandima is an amazing and huge property. They have variety of rooms that you can choose from. We stayed 2 nights in beachfront room and 2 nights in aqua villa and they both were amazing. We travelled with our 3 year old and she had an amazing time especially at Kandiland. The staff is hospitable and very courteous. Food is good and they have certain activities at different restaurants every night. The beach is white but had a lot of small coral when we visited. Would love to visit again

One of our best Holidays.
We stayed for a week in a beach studio. Excellent service, pristine beach and lush vegetation. Buffet restaurants provide a great variety of food. Room was clean and comfortable. Various aquatic activities. Transfers from and to Malé were very well organized. Highly recommended destination.

The best vacation ever.
Amazing. The best vacation ever. The island is beautiful. The beaches are sandy white, the water crystal clear and the staff is super friendly. The food is delicious and of very high quality. There’s a huge variety of dishes in the buffet breakfast and dinner. The rooms are great. The resort is relatively new (about 2 years old), so everything looks still like new, and they paid attention to every little detail. I was a little disappointed when we arrived, and I found out that the Ocean Pool Villa that I had reserved has no access to the beach. But the staff, especially Moosa (thank you!!) did everything in their power to make us happy. We changed the room to a beach pool villa (which was completely amazing) for 3 nights, and spent the last two nights in an aqua villa, to have the “over water” experience of the Maldives. But my two young daughters felt completely in love with the beach pool villa. I would be happy to go there again and would recommend to anyone.

The WORST vacation in my life!!!
It was the worst trip that I’ve ever made in my life because of this resort’s services and BAD arrogance management
MOATH, us6 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
We stayed at Kandima for 5 days. Staff was friendly and very helpful. your luggage is all taken care off when you arrived at the airport and get transferred to your room later. There are lots of options for food with different types of cuisines - even though i thought food is quite expensive - Sea Dragon was our favourite restaurant as the food is really tasty and the chef actually came out to greet you after your meal. Breakfast buffet was free for us and there were a lot to choose from - the only thing I never find the food is hot enough - just warm - and by the time you get it back to your table it's basically room temperature. To move around the islands there are very frequent mini- buses and the drivers were so friendly. Out room and bathroom is quite spacious with a balcony with good views and still in perfect condition. lots of activities to do like snorkeling, fishing and parasailing ... but you will most likely end up running out of things to do after 5 days - I wouldnt stay there for more than 5 days. Overall I had a great time and would highly recommend this resort if you ever visit Maldives.
