After having stayed at more high end resorts, including St Regis Maldives and Waldorf Maldives, I can say that the Holiday Inn Kandooma is the best value for money resort in the Maldives. Despite the closeness to the airport, the location and water is brilliant. The villas are top notch. What makes the place superb is the staff, nothing is too much for them. The dining team in particular, was exceptionally helpful, even with restrictions and customisations. The pre arrival communication was prompt. No one should hesitate booking here, especially at the prices they offer.

We were three from family (11 yr old son) and were very happy to stay at Holiday Inn. From the time we reach Male airport to hotel room, all is well organized and smooth. It takes 45 mins on speed boat to reach resort. We were three and room was so well organized that we didn't had to call reception for extra bed, extra towel etc. unlike other resorts we stayed earlier. Food option is good and were happy to see Indian food counter. We would find at least 4 to 5 options and especially good for my wife as she is a vegetarian. However my son could not manage food :-( as he is tasting salt less and spice less food for the first time. Staff is good and polite. Luckily we took 3 time meal option, otherwise food is expensive (converting to INR of course). Especially beverages were super expensive, never paid $7 for coconut water. One time they gave ala-carte option as guests were few, then we realized the difference in quality and taste, ala-carte is much better compare to buffet. Rides they offer is good and again price is bit higher. On overall, our stay was wonderful and we rate it as must visit place....

If you go to the spa, I highly recommend the therapist Purni who is just incredible. Her kindness, her professionalism, her desire to please the client really deserve to be highlighted. I spent a fantastic moment of relaxation in her company, and I will return without hesitation. Do not hesitate :-)

We had an absolutely excellent stay in Kandooma. We cannot thank you enough for our experience. I went scuba diving each day with Shakeeb and Nihaan and had the absolute best time underwater. It could not have been better! My partner did the Perfect Wave surfing and had an amazing time with the surf guides. Finally, to all of the other staff, Lucas and I want to say thank you! Madeh, Lynn at the surf shack, Yusef, etc etc thank you so much. We will be back!!

It was such a pleasure to say at Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma. It was a special occasion to celebrate our wedding Anniversary. The resort crew was fantastic and started put in lot of care in organising the whole experience and to make it the best memorable trip & marking our 90th country visit right from the reservation day. To start with Mr Sreeju from F&B, such a lovely staff who puts guest care at heart of everything, from greeting to paying attention to guest dietary details was amazing. Being a Diamond Elite member with IHG was a perk :-). Mr Sreeju and team looked after the whole family’s F&B throughout our stay and the best part was the Anniversary event (today, 24 Oct) that they put up, we really appreciate all the effort and care Mr Sreeju showed towards the special day. It is such gesture that makes a huge difference in hospitality industry. I’m very confident that the Management team from Kandooma Holiday Inn Resort will pass this feedback to Mr Sreeju and appreciate him & team in making the whole experience a memorable one. Our kids were so comfortable and never missed any of their favourite dish, so a big thank you on their behalf as well to entire F&B crew and Mr Sreeju. Next to F&B, it was guest experience team. Ms Akhila paid special attention to make sure their guest are at ease and every need is taken care. She made sure that she visited, greeted us and enquired about our stay to keen to take feedback everyday. I would like to say a special ‘thank you’ to her for resort tour and accommodating our request. Next in line was the house keeping team, small things make a big difference and house keeping lives up to it. Everyday the rooms were made up really well and for the special occasion they made it very memorable. Overall, being a seasoned traveller and travelled from Hawaii to Fiji and all top properties in the world including paradise places, I will very strongly recommend Holiday Inn Resort, Kandooma to all type of travellers. They have everything from Kids club to water sporting (complementary activities too), best F&B and best talented staff like Mr Sreeju, Ms Akhila and team. Thank you Holiday Inn for everything and we will certainly come back as you delighted us through your guest experience and have best talented crew. Keep up the great work!! Highly highly recommended property from a loyal IHG Diamond Elite Member & Mrs Diamond Elite too!!
