Exceptional 10.0
Kandolhu is perfect. Small. Amazing house reef and loads of great diving nearby. Beautiful (modern) design. The ocean villas are stunning - the most gorgeous bathroom I’ve ever had (even if it gets a little warm with the sun streaming in through all the glass). Fabulous food - amazing to have 5 restaurants on a teeny island. Lovely staff all around. Fab wine list and all inclusive programme is great (we don’t usually go for that kind of thing but it works here). We were absolutely delighted with everything about our stay and can’t wait to return!! Thanks Laura and Mark and team for an amazing stay!
