Kandima Maldives Experience
A great anniversary trip. Greater by hotel at airport with sign. If taking water plane, make sure luggage total 20kg per person. Additional charges may apply. Over the water bungalow just like photos. Limited food and drinks were great with DAI package. Tropical area. May rain a little but weather was still 80 plus degrees. This was a trip for the books!

6/10 Good

The place was ok. It more of a 3 star property than 5*. Staff do there best to accomadate and the chef. I hated the beach. It not smooth at all. It was rubbish. It had to much shells. Yes it was white. Pic from far make it look amazing. But close up not that great. All insclusve drink are all water down juice. Not the real thing. Pools are nice and bar area good. Restaurants are good with plenty to choose from. Another I had was the swirl pool are cold so I difficult to use at night time. It was ok but the best.
