Kandolhu Maldives named amongst world’s best hotels for romance
Kandolhu Maldives has been named amongst the most romantic hotels in the world by TripAdvisor.
At the 2018 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, Kandolhu secured the 19th spot in the list of the Top 25 Hotels for Romance in the World.
The resort was also included in several regional lists: the Top 10 Hotels in the Maldives, Top 10 Luxury Hotels in the Maldives, Top 10 Hotels for Romance in the Maldives, and Top 10 Hotels for Service in the Maldives.
Ringed by an intricate yet stunning coral garden teeming with colourful reef fish, Kandolhu is a patch of paradise hidden in the North Ari Atoll and accessible by a 25-minute scenic seaplane flight. The resort offers just 30 villas in five different styles — Jacuzzi Beach Villas, Pool Villas, Duplex Pool Villas, Ocean Villas and Ocean Pool Villas — that feature local architecture with modern interiors.
Kandolhu, a small island resort of only 30 villas, is cleverly arranged to offer maximum privacy yet all within the space of only 200 square meters. It is also home to four gourmet restaurants, boasting the highest restaurant-to-room ratio in the Maldives.
Presenting four unique dining experiences available to all Kandolhu guests, the ambience and menu of each restaurant varies greatly: be entertained with a live show in Banzai, the Japanese teppanyaki, delight in an array of fresh seafood on offer in Sea Grill, sit back and gaze at the sparkling Indian Ocean from the Market or enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner in Olive with modern Mediterranean dishes on the card.
The intimate island resort also has a spa, and offers a range of recreational activities, including diving, snorkelling, water sports and excursions.
