Slip into island life

You don’t need us to tell you the Maldives & the Mentawai Islands are surfing nirvana. So what could cast a shade? Private breaks & crowds? At some point, Kelly Slater tweeted: “If there was any question as 2 whether we’ve ruined the Mentawais, the sobering reality of 16 boats @ 1 average break tonight confirmed it.” The Maldives private surf resorts are a solution to crowds but who wants private surf breaks. Uncrowded surf is pure luxury for the happy few. On the other hand, resorts bring more tax and jobs to the locals. Anyway, for a couple with kids, Kandooma, is pretty much perfection. Happy wife, Happy Life. It’s your call.

Let speedboats ferry you across the turquoise waters from Male International Airport,  in just 40 minutes. Slip into island life from the moment you arrive at Kandooma, with world-class diving and surfing facilities at your doorstep.

“With limited numbers at the resort, we can now guarantee that all surfers on Kandooma Island will be able to enjoy one of the best right-handers in the Maldives uncrowded every day. We believe that there is no closer accommodation to take off zone in the world. You barely have to walk 30 metres from your villa to the paddle out point, and you literally lie in bed and watch the hollow and highly rippable waves peel down the point.” perfectwave

Beach villas ooze style and boast elegant touches like outdoor showers and iPod docking stations. Grab a coffee and wood-fired pizza from the Bokkuraa Coffee Club beside our sparkling infinity pool, or unwind with a good book and enjoy views over the peaceful lagoon.

You can indulge in a soothing Thai massage and other beauty treatments at our Kandooma Spa and book the Spa Suite’s private garden with plunge pool for a romantic afternoon. As a child-friendly Maldives hotel, your children will be kept entertained with face-painting and fun games, while parents can unwind with a game of tennis or a workout at the gym. Top off a perfect day with a Maldivian seafood feast and breathtaking sunsets at The Kitchen restaurant.
