How to get to the kool island

Everything about the island is spelt with a “K” as much as they can as that is their signature mark. There are two ways of getting to the island located about an hour from the Male International Airport. From Dubai or Riyadh, the best way to fly is through Beond Airlines, the latest carrier which started off operations, as it is a premium experience, which cater to a selected number of guests and all seats are business class.  Their personalised service excels in standards and the product quality of utmost importance.

Seaplane experience

From Male International Airport you are escorted to the special seaplane pier, which is also a specialised airport. It was the first time to experience a sea plane ride, with a male and female pilot taking us through the beautiful, picturesque islands of the Maldives, landed on a pier and to be taken by a speedboat. The ride itself lasted 50 minutes, its compact but a quick way to get to the island of Kandima.

Surrounded by natural beauty

Coming from an island destination itself in my native land, I was not entirely sure what to expect, but lo and behold! The moment I got off the seaplane and saw that we were literally in the middle of the ocean gave me a sense of adventure and a spirit for exploration. When you step on the pier, you are surrounded by water and then see an island at one end of it, which brings you into private island. At the reception you are warmly greeted by the staff who also speak Arabic language, which is comfortable for the Middle Eastern travellers as they explain every detail of the stay.


The types of accommodation available vary from luxurious villas overlooking the sea with your own swirl pool, garden, own private beach space, a day bed and an amazing jacuzzi to water villas for those who prefer a dip in the sea. For families from the Middle East, there are villas that can accommodate two or more families in the bigger villas with space for staff as well.

Haven for aquaholics

It is certainly a haven for aquaholIt is certainly a haven for aquaholics, whether you are a beginner or professional there is something for everyone and every member of the family. From platform snorkelling to scuba diving, glass boat kayaking to adrenaline driven jet ski riding, it is a must visit bucket list destination for all aquaholics in GCC nations.

The courteous staff at the hotel will tailor make, or bespoke as you want to call it any experience. I believe they have got the longest pool in an island with a private beach of three-and-a-half kilometres, remember it is a private island. The gigantic sperm sharks that rest on the lagoon to crabs running around their own little sand pit at the bay is quite interesting to watch and observe. Their entire concept of embracing nature has literally taken a step ahead of the rest.

Leave your shoes behind
It literally means so, “get off your shoes and walk on the sand and feel the paradise under your feet”. The island is your own playground, no matter where you walk, you can either walk barefooted to experience natural sand underneath your feet or wear flipflops. The island is only for the resort hence safety is guaranteed, and you can cycle around the island or wait for the hop on hop off bus service as they call it—a mini-van, which could take 20 passengers at a time and is available every 20 minutes, can take you from one end of the island to the other. And the beauty is that its all open, hence you can get your insta friendly photo opportunities there.

All inclusive concept

The all-inclusive concept is a great way to enjoy your space and spare time. All you need to do is ensure that you select to experience every single restaurant, café, beach bar across the island, which provides you with an array of food of drink that would literally take you to different parts of the world.

Exciting ventures

From swinging on the swing within the water of the sea, to sunset yoga on the beach, a beach party by night with guest DJs or sometimes if you are lucky you get to witness Arabian nights where a renown magician and his crew takes over with belly dancers as well. The offerings in the island are remarkable and worth it every step of the way.
