WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: In the North Ari Atoll, the island of Kandolhu is just 25 minutes by seaplane from the Maldives capital, Male.

Services: With only 30 rooms, service is not only world-class but personal, hands-on and tailored to guests’ requirements.

History: The natural elements used to build and decorate Kandolhu resort speak to the indigenous culture of this island paradise.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Amidst the turquoise waters of the Indian ocean, to the northern end of the sparkling white string of pearls of the Ari atoll, tiny Kandolhu Island glitters especially brightly. Less than 45 miles from Male, the island can be accessed by seaplane in a matter of 25 short minutes. Yet, from the first barefoot step onto the pristine white sand, visitors feel totally secluded in a peaceful paradise, setting the scene for the perfect relaxing getaway, romantic holiday or unforgettable honeymoon. In all of the distinct five accommodation options over 30 villas, guests are enchanted by authentic local architecture and pampered by modern comforts and attentive service. From the wide range of wining and dining options, to the sumptuous Varu spa, contemporary design meets laid-back luxury across the resort for the perfect balance. Every whim is attended to, with exhilarating aquatic excursions including some of the best diving and snorkeling in the Maldives, while wine lovers are catered for with an optional all-inclusive package featuring an in-room wine fridge stocked with 30 bottles.
