Overview

A decidedly contemporary and stylish holiday resort overlooking a stunning lagoon, the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma is a top choice both for relaxing getaways and high-octane water sports. Located on the island of Kandooma Fushi in the South Male Atoll of the Maldives, it takes just 40 minutes to reach both the Velana International Airport and the capital city Male by speedboat. Known for its modern design and superb facilities, the resort is ideal for those who want idyllic surroundings without having to compromise on creature comforts.

There are a total of 160 villas at the resort, all of which feature a pleasant nautical theme with white-washed timber and bright splashes of turquoise. The beach and garden villas have floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the beach and gardens, respectively. The two-story ‘beach houses’ offer more space, and the ‘family beach houses’ provide generous accommodation for families and larger groups. For something a bit different, the ‘overwater villa’ and the larger ‘overwater pavilion’ are both set over the crystal-clear sea waters and offer a private sun deck and even a partially submerged hammock. All accommodation options offer a range of convenient amenities such as complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, a flat-screen TV and complimentary bottled water.

There’s a large infinity pool overlooking the lagoon, a well-equipped fitness centre and a superb activity lounge which houses a billiards table, several Mac computers and a selection of magazines and books. There’s also a huge variety of sporting pursuits on offer from table tennis, football, volleyball and surfing, to underwater hockey. The Aqua Life Discovery Centre is certainly worth a visit as it educates guests about local marine life and has an aquarium full of exotic species. For quiet time, there's the on-site spa, which offers a range of massages and pampering treatments all in a beautiful natural setting, plus there are plenty of excursions to choose from including trips to Male, night fishing cruises and island hopping.

Dining options at the resort are plentiful, with several restaurants serving an array of international and local cuisine, as well as appetising light snacks throughout the day. There are also a few bars serving up refreshing drinks to enjoy alongside evening entertainment.

The resort is very child friendly, with a babysitting service available on request and a kids club for those over the age of four. There’s a varied program of events and activities so that younger family members have plenty to keep them occupied. The kids club has a good selection of games and toys, and some of the activities include snorkelling tuition and face painting. Parents are reminded that children must remain under adult supervision at all times.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
