A stunning island getaway with first class hospitality!

trip advisor rating

We have just returned from our honeymoon and had the pleasure of spending part of it on Kandolhu, the island itself is stunning and literally picture perfect and was immaculately maintained throughout our stay. The food was also stunning and despite being such a small island we were spoiled for choice with the various a la carte restaurant options including sea grill, teppanyaki, indian cuisine etc as well as a more casual dining experience for the daytime. A particular highlight for us was enjoying a cocktail at the beach bar looking out into the ocean before enjoying our meal.

My husband (gosh that still sounds so grown up!) were blown away by this little slice of paradise. We were met by the manager and his partner and given a refreshing cocktail as we stepped off the speedboat. We were staying in one of the ocean pool villas and we really can’t recommend them highly enough. With a private plunge pool, steps into the see and a glass walled bathroom, it felt spacious and luxurious. There were so many little touches that really make this resort stand out, from the waterproof GoPro they provide for snorkelling to the beach bag with frisbee and bat and ball included. As we were on our honeymoon we got a free 30 minute massage each, dinner on the beach by candlelight AND a champagne sunset cruise.

I stayed at Kandolhu the last week of May. Amazing! 5-star service, food, amenities, accommodations. I traveled alone, stayed in a beachfront Jacuzzi villa. Perfect. Very relaxing, but never bored! The weather was a bit cloudy and windy – so I chose to get PADI scuba certified. Top-notch water sports team that hooked me up with snorkel gear when not scuba…and great teachers to get me 18m under! Absolutely beautiful house reef and dive locations. The food was outstanding. Moreover, I am a “sauce on the side” orderer – and the chefs made every accommodation to cater to my desires. Perfect vacation. Incredibly welcoming, over-the-top service
