"Place beyond words"
The minute you come out of airport, beautiful colors of water in Maldives pleasantly surprise you. Hotel is close to 40 minutes from airport. Place is very beautifully maintained. Staff is always ready to help. Stay in a water villa is must, but try to stay in the ocean side of villas and in the first couple of villa as water recedes in the night and you might find your villa over the rocks with no water !! Complementary snorkeling trip is a must do item. Food is expensive, but you can manage on a reasonable price if eat in the a-la-carte restaurant.
"A hotel with an incredible culture of warmth and friendliness"
This hotel far surpassed our expectations of a good hotel - it is in fact deserving of a 6 star rating, even though it is advertised as a 4 star hotel. It has provided our family a holiday which has been so incredibly pleasant, and we would like to give them our thanks for this. This is our 4th trip to the Maldives, but our first to Kandooma. We travelled with 2 kids - one is aged 9 and the other aged 2. Kandooma is a fairly large resort, with a full range of facilities including kids club, swimming pools, spa, fitness center, watersports center, dive center etc. Although the target group may be families, there are still a lot of guests who are on an adults only trip, and are still happy to be there. The resort is large enough to provide you with quiet spots if you choose to have alone time, or if you would like to join in the activities, you will find enough people to share the activity with. The rooms are large, very spacious, and thoughtfully designed with a wash area just outside the door to get rid of sand. A few other details we appreciated - reading lights on the beds (I have not successfully been able to read in the rooms of other Maldives resorts as lights are too dim), huge beach bags, ample and wonderful beach and room towels. Rooms can be quite a distance from the main facilities - a common problem in many resorts but Kandooma has solved this by providing a buggy service. You just need to give them a call, and a buggy will swing by in 10 - 15 minutes to pick you up. Kandooma has a large stretch of a main beach - though not every part of it is suitable for swimming, but these are marked out very clearly. Some parts are for surfing, while others are for snorkelling. The sand is clean, fine and great for kids to play on. There are many pockets of quiet areas if you prefer to keep away from the crowds. For those who find wifi to be crucial, Kandooma is way superior in this aspect compared to many many island resorts. Connectivity is top notch - not just in the rooms, but even on the beach. No dropped connections, and very strong connectivity in every part of the resort. Snorkelling - unfortunately Kandooma does not have a house reef, though if you would like to snorkel, the area where the water bungalows are do provide quite a good variety of marine life, but not with good visibility. Its akin to muck diving in a very shallow, sandy area. But you do see sting rays, lion fish, morays, butterfly fish, trigger fish, gobies, and more. Snorkelling equipment is free (this is a huge plus for this resort), and they run free snorkelling trips every morning. We went on the trip to Turtle Reef (this one is chargeable), and we did see some turtles, but do note that this is in open sea, and do get some snorkelling experience before going to fully enjoy it. The resort does snorkelling lessons, which is great for those who have never done it before. Diving - we dived with Euro Divers who operates the dives at Kandooma. It was such a pleasant experience diving with them - great dive instructors who are careful with safety yet exuberant and enthusiastic and equipment which are new and in great condition. Dive sites are very near (usually in the 10 minute range) and all within easy reach. Kids Club - one of the best Kids Club we have ever seen. 2 floors, brightly lit with natural lighting from the windows, done up like a wonderful home for children. Books and toys were good and relevant, they even had an infant section that could be closed off so that the little ones could sleep in peace, play slide, ball pit, swings, video games, tv. Which by the way, in all 5 days our kids were there - the TV was hardly used to keep them entertained. We travelled with a 2 year old, who has never been left in a Kids Club before. We did not plan to leave her there, but we met Chinnu, one of the Kids Club staff on Day 1 and we felt comfortable with her. We were right. For the rest of the days we stayed at Kandooma, both our children asked to go to the Kids Club. The kids were kept entertained with craft and games, and they were totally at ease with all the Kids Club staff. Food - we ate daily at the Kandooma cafe (the buffet area). There isn't a massive amount of food (which honestly we are glad to see as it usually amounts to huge wastage), but what they do have, they do well. The Indian food was top notch, the noodles and teppanyaki live stations were great, salads were kept fresh and interesting, home made sorbet was to die for. And water is free. This is an incredibly annoying thing we have experienced in other hotels in Maldives, where we get charged for water but not in Kandooma. If there was one thing I would improve - it would be the food for kids. It is unfortunately limited to sandwiches, waffles/pancakes, nuggets and fries/wedges - I do wish that more options could be provided or more variety introduced on a daily basis. What many many hotels do not understand or achieve and Kandooma does, is that it is not just the hardware that keeps the guests coming - it is the heart and soul of the hotel and Kandooma has an incredible culture of warmth and friendliness that radiates from every staff we met. I applaud management for what they have done as the staff all seem to be empowered and encouraged to do what they can for their guests. In many hotels, this is limited to perhaps the front desk/guest relations - but in Kandooma, every single staff have no qualms of providing what they can for the guests. We were met by Akira who did our check in process in our room as we arrived very late. But what was impressive was how she could greet us by name when we were around the resort and she somehow managed to appear on a constant basis during the week we were there to check on how we were doing. In Kandooma Cafe, waiters are not only attentive and pleasant - they provided random items that they made from coconut leaves and balloons to our little ones. When they noticed that our toddler was upset, they appear with what they know is her favourite drink - apple juice. They noticed me standing around looking for crayons - they guessed it in seconds and crayons arrived. The waiters always looked out for our kids, chatted with them and we had our 2 year old who is usually shy, going up to them and following them around. The Chefs are friendly and took pride in their food. Many were happy to chat, and obliged food requests. Somewhere along the line, the chefs found out we were from Singapore and lo and behold, we had nasi lemak appearing on our table for breakfast (thank you to Executive Chef for this). The Kids Club - these ladies are top notch. I do not know how they do it, but their friendliness, enthusiasm and love for children completely blew us and our kids away, and thanks to the Kids Club, we got to dive. Our dive instructor said, don't worry about leaving your kids there, in no time, they will be banging on the door waiting for the Kids Club to open every morning. He was absolutely right and that is exactly what happened. A special thanks to Chinnu and Alka who were just super. Thank you to Winston who was warm and friendly, and who discovered we would miss the shark feeding session (do not miss this - it is every Wednesday evening) and arranged one for us. There are actually many other staff we would like to thank. While we may not know their names but literally every one played a part in making our holiday wonderful. The buggy drivers who happily offered us rides if they see us walking to our rooms and who would remember details like which room we stay in and that we have 2 kids (they saw only one, and asked where is the older one?), the staff who cleans our room who was always polite and always asked if everything is ok, the staff at the bar who always greets us as we walk past, the maintenance crew who on the day there was a thunderstorm, miraculously paved the water logged path with sand, making it a completely dry path for us to walk on. Thank you to Maxine, Vince and Oscar from Euro Divers, for helping us get reacquainted with the wonders of diving after having not dived for many years. It is great to dive with instructors who take safety seriously and yet display an enthusiasm for diving that is very infectious. Every resort in the Maldives has access to the incredible waters and marine life. Some resorts have even better reefs and marine life than Kandooma. But this hotel has something special - a whole team of staff who all work together at making your holiday a wonderful one.
"Awesome Experience "
I went to Holiday Inn, Kandooma with my wife and kid and returned with memories for lifetime. The entire crew at Holiday Inn is extremely friendly and they ensured we have a relaxed stay. The beaches were clean. I also tried scuba diving at the Euro club and it was one of the best experiences of my life. We are vegetarians and we don't take egg. The chef made special efforts to ensure we get some food to our liking. Anyone visiting Maldives with family, I would say Holiday Inn is the place. As they say children below 12 stay and eat for free.
"Beautiful Island, what a great hotel!"
I am full of praise for the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma. The highlights of my review are that it excellent and you should definitely go! In more detail the whole stay was a great success. Bear in mind you have to pay an extra $100 per person to get the speedboat from Male (the airport) to the island. This takes 45 mins but fun as the boat crew are friendly and in the dark show you jumping fish! That fee also gets you back to the airport. They have a person at the airport who greets you and gets you onto the speedboat and away you go. Very warm welcome at reception. They explain all the areas and varying food options. You can add a food package onto your stay the options increasing on variety and price. We decided not to in the end eating mostly at the Kandooma cafe. Simple food like pizza, burgers, pasta and more affordable than the buffet. Those foods costing from $20-30. The buffet was $80 per day per guest. We did enjoy the BBQ evening trying the beef and lamb, it was delicious. $5 for an ice cream thru the day (BOGOF 3-4pm). There are island taxes added on to all food and drink it is not at all cheap but I think people are well aware when they book to come. We were upgraded to a beach villa as IHG Rewards Club members and it was stunning. Literally a 20 second walk to the sea across the beach. Our balcony had a lovely view onto the beach. A super comfy big bed in the lovely room. Really top notch and the shower is actually open air. A really god touch. There are lots of water sports you can do at the resort, from diving to windsurfing. We only did the wonderful complimentary snorkeling which was great over the reef. The snorkel equipment is available for free and you can do as much as you want around the island. Spent quite a lot of time doing that. You can get a kayak for free too! The island is pretty much exactly a mile around, I ran it a few times and that was great when it cools early or late. Great viewing spots for both sunrise and sunset. Well worth catching. The beaches are pure white sand, the water is so warm, clear and full of life. A little slice of paradise. Thank you for a wonderful stay in a great place and we will be back!
