Travel to Malé


Kandooma, The Maldives

20 February 2016

Words: Tom Kane / Images: Kandooma Resort

Kandooma resort exists as an homage to all that is indelibly appealing about the Maldives. It harnesses everything that you’d expect from a private island set in the classic picture-postcard environs, and couples it with enough activities and attractions to satisfy all holiday expectations with ease.

While this Holiday Inn Resort includes the typically Maldivian overwater villas, you can, instead, opt for sea-facing beach houses offering a stellar hybrid of beach living and home comforts. Planted on the water’s edge, they’re built over two floors, one outside and one in. The spacious bedroom and balcony quarters are up top, with a large adjoining bathroom and, in a nod to the convivial, a suitably well covered outdoor shower. Continuing the alfresco trend, the designer furnishings of the downstairs area are all laid out on the island’s white sand carpet, meaning that the beach doubles beautifully as your temporary living room.
