A haven of tranquillity and serenity in North Ari Atoll, Maldives

An exhilarating seaplane journey from Malé takes you to Kandolhu Maldives, an exclusive resort of just 30 villas, some with private pools. This tiny private island has a beautiful white sand beach and a lively coral reef. With beach and over-water villas, five great restaurants, a spa and a wealth of non-motorised water sports, this could be your temporary Maldivian home.

Choose between beach villas or over-water villas, some with a Jacuzzi and others with a private plunge pool. All have daybeds, a sundeck and sun loungers to make the most of the outrageously beautiful sea views. Grab your complimentary snorkelling gear and discover Kandolhu Maldives' house reef, encircling the island and teeming with abundant marine life.

A diver’s paradise, Kandolhu Maldives provides both day and night dives. Swim among turtles, Napoleon wrasse, parrotfish, snappers and jacks through caverns and overhangs. Take sailing lessons, or enjoy hours of pampering in the spa. Go on a champagne sunset cruise and return later for Mediterranean cuisine in the Olive Restaurant or fresh seafood at the Sea Grill, right on the beach.
