Kandooma Island is 13 hectares in area (32 acres) or roughly about a 20 minute walk around the perimeter. It is located two thirds down the south eastern edge of the south male atoll and is neighbours to resort islands Cocoa in the north, Biyado in the west and local island Guraidhoo in the south. For a sampling of Maldivian life, visits to Guraidhoo can be arranged.
The resort has 160 villas in four main categories of beach and garden villas, Duplex villas, family villas and water villas. With the exception of the garden villas, all the accommodation has been built around the edge of or on the water. Each villa type has been designed with cool clean lines with white washed timber providing warm texture to the unshod foot. Large picture windows mean that you are only a glance away from the great blue outdoors.
The connected I-pod generation need not fret as the island is completely covered with wi-fi broad band. Didn’t bring your pod? No worries, our resident dj’s have about 40 of the things for loan that will be programmed with the kind of play lists you tell them you like. Serving “Med-Asian” cuisine Restaurants and bars at Kandooma will offer a fresh new approach to resort dining as it seeks to provide choice in menu, service, environment and price.
Guests coming home will be able to tell tales of margaritas in the lounge, villa side barbeques, wood-fired pizzas by the pool, sunset garnished Mojitos on koimala roof bar, take out fish and chips, Kandooma café buffet, castaway picnics, cappuccino’s at the coffee club and sitting at the kitchen range at Koimala restaurant offering advice to the chefs.
