Where can I start with this review of Kandolhu! It is just perfection in the middle of the Indian Ocean! It all begins being dropped off by a sea plane on a platform by a neighbouring island then in a James Bond style, a speed boat appears to pick you up to take you to

Amazing island, brilliant staff, incredible food, fabulous snorkelling and great hosts. If you are looking for some relaxed luxury, this is the place to come. Laura and Marc are great hosts of this tiny resort (only 30 villas) with staff who cannot do enough to make for a

Having enjoyed a wonderful stay in December 2017, albeit with mixed weather and associated tedious delay at Male, we decided to return at a time with optimal weather. This time we were very lucky with the transfer to island with no waiting in Male. Upon arrival at the island we

Hi there. We completely understand your concern. We do try very hard to discourage the use of drones as we are very aware of the disturbance these can cause when not used respectfully. There are times when we are contacted in advance and we allow them, but explain clearly they are to be used only from the end of our watersports jetty, are not to be flown close to villas or low over the island to ensure privacy is respected and noise disturbance is not an issue. In the example of media visits we do allow these but again ask that they are only used from the jetty There are unfortunately times when guests bring drones without informing us, however as soon as we notice this we speak with them immediately and explain the conditions to avoid any disturbance. We hope this helps and if you have any further concerns or questions please do not hesitate to let us know Thank you Kandolhu Maldives

Hi, How bad are the insects in the Maldives in Feb/Mar and April? Thanks Alex
0 Votes Hi there We typically do not experience many mosquitos during the dry season (Nov - end of April) as there is little rain water for them to breed in. We also fog the island once a week to help reduce their population further and can happily spray your room whenever required Best wishes Kandolhu Maldives

"The beach villas with pool are great with a lovely breeze."
