Best Family Resorts in The Maldives
05 July, 2021
Wanderlust is so last season! It’s all about living your best life and where better than our tropikal paradise on earth. Kandima is not just the hottest (desti)nation in the Maldives; it’s also one of the koolest.
Sure, we have pristine Instagram-ready beaches lapped by warm blue waters. But do you know what else is on the menu? Everything you can possibly imagine! Did we mention that Kandima is for everyone (and we mean, EVERYONE), so get ready to feast your eyes on what we have in store for you foodies, newly-weds, couples, friends, families and solo adventurers.
Honeymooners and those looking for proposal-worthy destinations, we are the resort for you! Jaw-dropping villas, Maldivian massages for two, private plunge pools, castaway private island experiences and intimate dinners await.
Are you head over heels in love, travelling with friends or a family wanting the ultimate trip of a lifetime? We have plenty of space to bicycle around the 3km long island with one of the longest pools in the Maldives, heavenly wellness options including an award-winning SPA, enough mouth-watering restaurants and water activities like no other to keep you all entertained for at least a fortnight.
As well as multiple private dining options, a resident acclaimed live-band or world-class DJs spinning tracks every night and the koolest kids club. With added safety norms, it’s the perfect escape for any kind of celebration or just a thought of a perfect vacation! Go ahead, book the vacation of a lifetime, and #JustPlay!
SPICE UP YOUR LIFE
This is not a drill; we have one of the largest dining options of all the atoll islands with ten different bars and restaurants to choose from. Make sure you eat at our incredible Sea Dragon restaurant and Forbidden Bar where our newly joined, uber innovative Chef Pairote Pimswat and his talented team create flavourful, tantalizing and authentic Asian dishes with a modern touch. There’s freshly caught fish from the waters of Dhaalu Atoll to juicy lobsters and crabs up for grabs! After you’ve eaten, make your way to the super kool adults-only Forbidden Bar via a psychedelic tunnel where live DJs play long into the night.

And now for something a little bit different. There’s snorkeling; then there’s night snorkeling! Ah-yes! Watch the underwater world light up as the sun goes down for an experience that’s unlike any other. Grab your snorkel, mask and a waterproof UV torch and watch nocturnal sea creatures come out to play. Keep your eyes peeled for a lionfish, lobster or an octopus and create your own galaxy of glittering bioluminescence or simply immerse yourself in the magical disco vibe as bioluminescent corals and anemones illuminate the sea with their bright, mesmerizing neon colors!
Discover the incredible range of aquatic activities here on our oh-so-kool island (desti)nation!
CALLING ALL THE KOOL KIDS!
Grown-ups keep out…. Kandiland is for the kool kids only! Our multilingual Kandiland Krew is not only fully certified when it comes to childcare but is also bursting with ideas and activities to keep our littlest VIPs entertained all day long. Did we mention that our outdoor pool is one of the the longest in the Maldives? There’s plenty of room for all the family to splash and play around. From kid’s menus, family rooms, babysitting service, carefully crafted Kandiland, daily activities maintaining the highest safety & health stadards, private pools, etc., we’ve thought of everything to keep the little ones happy so that you can relax, unwind, #justplay and have the best time together.

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.
