Description & Location

Kandima Maldives is amazingly stylish, seriously fun and offers incredible facilities. It will appeal to couples, families and those who prefer a spontaneous wide smile to a studied pose. Opened in March 2017 to instant acclaim. A real game-changing resort.

Kandima Island is located in the lesser developed Dhaalu Atoll, a grouping of 56 small islands of which just a handful are inhabited.

30 minutes by domestic flight south-west from Male followed by 20-minute scenic speedboat ride. The resort is also accessible by seaplane transfers which are 40 minutes from Male directly to the landing jetty in front of resort (supplement applies).


Kandima Maldives has 272 Studio Rooms and Villas.

You have a choice of:

Beach or Sky (upper floor) Studios, which have integrated living space. These are in units of 4 rooms, two up and two down.

Beach Villas, either with jacuzzi or pool.

Aqua Over Water Villas, some with jacuzzi.

Ocean Pool Villas with step down sea access.

Facilities and Activities
  • One of the longest swimming pools in the Maldives

  • Numerous restaurant options with cuisine ranging from western favourites, Mediterranean dishes or Asian fusion

  • The HQ (central area) which seems to be open 24/7 offers a library and games rooms

  • Dive and water sports centre (Dhaalu Atoll is regarded as one of the best diving sites)

  • Art studio with painting and photography classes
Attractive Beach - Cooking Classes - Gym - Largest Kids Club - Regular Evening Entertainment - Spa

Some Maldives resorts are almost deliberately romantically rigid, with a virtual “do not disturb“ sign given to arriving guests. You almost go to escape other people. Kandima Maldives is very different. You are almost expected to show your delight and pleasure with smiles and laughter. It is a place to enjoy, to relax and pamper yourself, but to also indulge in some hedonistic pleasures as well. Being seen to be having fun is all part of the appeal. Guest interaction, whilst certainly not compulsory, is nicely encouraged.

The accommodation is stylish, the facilities superb, particularly the range of dining options. It is one of the larger resorts, both in room numbers and size of the island, although still a diminutive 3km long. Probably not an ultra-deluxe resort – that is not the intention. It is just exceedingly good superior first-class value.

The resort operates on a Half Board basis, but also offers two All-Inclusive options, both of which include a number of marine activities.
