Celebrate this Eid in style with a well-deserved family vacation creating some oh-so kool memories. Take part in a live performance of the ‘Bodu Mas’ (big fish) - the most anticipated celebration of the day in the Maldives. The traditional dance named ‘Maali Neshun’, based on ancient folklore of islanders struggling to catch the big fish and the accompanying evil spirits and ghosts, paired with delicious Maldivian short eats, piping hot teas and coffees, is sure to make Eid Al Adha a day filled with celebrations and stories to last a lifetime.

End the day in style with a mouth-watering Eid Buffet at our buffet restaurant, or a feast from the specially curated set menu at our Smoked restaurant with your loved ones. Planning your Eid escapade later this month? Our Eid Eskape offer is valid for stays up to 31st July 2022!

Kandima Maldives

Jumeirah Vittaveli

Best Experience:   Family, Activities, Beach, Nightlife, Value

Kandima is a "new look" of the Maldives combining wild parties in the beach club, extensive dining options and even a chance to see the dolphin from the bathroom. It's about genuine hospitality with a human face and clever solutions that use the latest innovations, not to mention the playful spirit of a private island. Kandima was a late-comer to the Maldivian tourist market and is markedly different to the classic honeymooner resorts. It's aimed at sports-loving, party-going groups as well as couples and active families, and has a range of accommodation options, from affordable studios to luxury pool villas.

Located on a lush tropical island in Dhaalu Atoll is just a 30-minute flight from Velana International Airport, Kandima offers a choice of 266 stylishly designed studios and villas, with 11 different categories to choose from. The four-star plus resort has first class facilities, boasting the largest pool in the Maldives, tennis courts, an art studio, a marine biology school, a kids club, a game room, a library, a gym, a yoga studio and a spa.
