Kandolhu is a rare gem in the Maldives.  This stunning island may be small but it has 30 villas with 5 styles, a number of dining options and has the facilities of a much larger island.  Yet it remains pristine with lush gardens and wide sandy beaches plus one of the most pristine, colourful and lively house reefs in the Maldives.



Our Opinion


The opening paragraph we wrote pretty much captures what this island is all about. It is a 5-star island that has something for everyone but only a few get the privilege as there are only 30 villas. It is run by Universal Resorts (not the Movie/Theme Park company!) which also runs Baros, Kuramathi, Velassaru, Maafushivaru and Kurumba.  All of these islands are superbly run so you are in good hands.

And an amazing house reef too!




Located 70 kilometres south west of Male in North Ari Atoll, the island is reached in 25 minutes by seaplane.





Kandolhu offers 30 villas in 5 different styles, each style is distinct in design. All villas feature Maldivian architecture with modern interiors, King-sized beds, Air conditioning & fan, an iPad for guest use, an iPad & iPhone sound dock, a Flat-screen TV with varied channel list and on-demand movies, telephone, mini-bar and mini in-villa wine cellar, espresso machine / kettle, hairdryer, bath and beach towels, bathrobe, bathroom slippers, Voya bathroom amenities, plus complimentary Wi-Fi.
