From the moment we landed at Male international airport, the staff of Kandima was there to greet us and made the connection from Male to Kandima seamless. Kandima if far more beautiful in person than any picture we had seen! The food, staff, and room we stayed at (aqua villa with jacuzzi) were excellent! We truly can't wait to be back!

Great places, I stayed there with my fiancé at the Aqua Villa Jacuzzi. Breakfast is amazing but limited menu, dinner great as well also limited selection. I want to give special thanks to Wasa at the Pool Bar. He was amazing, down to earth. The General Manager was there and not friendly, he was on bis cell phone the entire time as opposed to the other managers who came by and introduced themselves with a big smile on their face and actually engaged with people who stayed there. Leadership starts from top to bottom, the general manager should definitely practice that. We did some excursions and please make sure you do it with Koko. He’s a great guy with smile on his face even in the water with you smiling. I work in Banking and if you would ask me key component question from NPS and how likely would I recommend them, I’d say an 8/10 And if they ever have a contest going on to enter a free entry and you’re American. Don’t even bother wasting time joining the contest. They only select and pick people from India and Russia as their bosses who control the panels are from India and bias.
