This newly opened resort combines contemporary luxury with the intimacy of a small island.


With just 30 villas scattered across the lush island and azure lagoon, Kandolhu Resort is a tiny tropical haven offering the ultimate in secluded experiences. The limited number of exclusive villas and the size of the island ensures guests feel almost as if it were their own personal slice of paradise.

Kandolhu is blessed with raw natural beauty, including an abundance of verdant vegetation and a wide beach of powder-soft white sand. Fringed by a vibrant coral reef that completely encircles the island, the resort is home to various tropical species, including parrotfish, anemonefish, and baby sharks. The coral reef is within easy reach of the shore for snorkellers.

Kandolhu’s natural charms are enhanced by luxurious facilities and amenities to ensure that every guest feels completely pampered. The stylish design fuses contemporary ‘island chic’ with traditional Maldivian elements such as thatched roofs made from coconut leaves. Luxury in-room amenities include personal iPads, espresso machines, and Voya toiletries.

There are four à la carte restaurants and a bar to choose from, as well as private beach-dining experiences and in-villa dining. The restaurants offer delicious and varied menus comprising Mediterranean, Japanese, seafood, and international fare.

Secreted in the heart of the island is the Varu Spa, comprising four treatment rooms surrounded by leafy jungle. The spa offers an array of treatments fusing local traditions with international practices.
