    This is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed! It is quiet and relaxed. The island is small so this is the only resort on it. You can walk around the island in 20 minutes. I loved how quiet this place was, and I didn’t see any kids there. In spite of its small size they had five restaurants serving different types of food. Some of the reef is damaged, but we still saw plenty of fish of varying sizes and colors! I would go back in a flash!

    The best in Maldives

    This is one of the best resorts in Maldives : the island is small and quite with amazing views, the rooms are very comfortable and supper clean, restaurants offer verities of selections, the service is amazingly good! In a few days, we saw big turtles, stingrays, manta ray, many, many colorful fishes just by walking around the island. We enjoyed the eco friendly environment. Thanks to Laura, Cai, and all staff numbers, especially the restaurant manager and owner who made our 30 years anniversary more special! See you next year! Thanks to all, again!

    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!

    Fabulous Small Resort with Outstanding House Reef

    This resort is fantastic. The architecture is great, the rooms even better than they look on the website, the service outstanding, the people incredibly friendly and helpful, the house reef superb, the food delicious... We can't say enough good things about Kandolhu and our experience there. We picked it out because it seemed excellent and it was even better than we hoped.

    Snorkeling paradise

    The staff at Kondolhu were very professional and went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. The small island is quiet and private with an amazing house reef and excellent food. Went on a manta ray excursion one morning and saw about 10 mantas, but spent most days exploring the house reef. This was our second trip and we hope to visit again soon.

    Magnifique petite île qui offre une un calme unique vu sa taille, nous avons passer un merveilleux séjour, le personnel est merveilleux, les infrastructures excellentes, les restaurants vraiements excellents, nous avions vraiment d'avoir notre propre île privée. Les sites de snorkeling sont just très riches et facile d'accès et j'ai également pu proviter du la navigation avec catamaran. Tout ce que l'on peu rêver de vacances sur une île tropicale. Bref ce furent nos meilleures vacances jusqu'a ce jour.

    具有美麗生態與景色的飯店

    小型礁島但相對遊客量也較少,景色優美,每個地方都是景點,海洋生態豐富,水上房屋價格不斐但很值得一住。人員親切,食物雖然也貴但基本上都好吃,除了日本料理全部都用同樣三個調味料,口味單一,需要加強。

    조용하고 아름다운 섬, 최고의 수중환경

    자쿠지 비치빌라와 듀플렉스 비치빌라에서 7일을 보냈습니다. 거의 모든부분 만족했지만 조식은 조금 아쉬운 부분이 있었습니다. 칸돌루는 꼭 다시 가고 싶을만큼의 아름다운 섬입니다. 특히, 뛰어난 수중환경 (스노클링만으로도 나폴레옹피쉬, 거북이 6마리, 이글레이 3마리를 봤어요)이 특히 장점이고, 조금 짧은 길이지만 투명한 라군과 너무 아름다운 바다의 모습이 있습니다.
