Home Away from Home at Kandolhu, The Maldives

If you have a soft spot for paradise, The Maldives is the place to visit at least once in your life. Kandolhu is a secluded island just a short 25-minute flight from the capital Male. The island is so small, you can easily explore all corners in a 15-minute walk. Kandolhu is quiet and feels more authentic from other resorts in the Maldives. We would like to call it our home away from home, and here’s why.

Villa stay

Kandolhu has just 30 rooms available. Even when it is fully booked, it still feels like you’re all alone on this beautiful island. The duplex villa is a two-story villa. Not a huge sized villa but one that gives you just the right amount of space and that warm ‘home’ feeling.

The villa has two bathrooms, an outside bathroom downstairs and a more convenient one upstairs. All other modern things like WiFi, air conditioning, great bed are all in the villa.

In front of the villa, you will have your own private pool. If you are more a beach person, it is just a 5-meter walk to the beach.

Dining at Kandolhu

The small island offers a wide range of dining from Japanese Teppanyaki, fresh sea grill, Mediterranean and more. At The Market, there is a daily breakfast and lunch. You will be having breakfast with a beautiful ocean view. With just 30 rooms on the island, you don’t have to worry about restaurants being too crowded.

Staying at Kandolhu

A stay at Kandolhu is for people who are looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday. You can’t get bored here; there are many activities like a dolphin-spotting sunset cruise, diving, snorkeling, and all other non-motorized water sports. We even saw a dolphin at the pier of Kandolhu.

The diving around Kandolhu island is just incredible. Your room includes a GoPro that you can use to shoot some beautiful underwater images. The island is surrounded by a great reef and you won’t get bored while snorkeling here. Try to spot the turtles!

If you want to fully relax, plan a visit to the spa or have a workout at the gym.
