Home Away from Home at Kandolhu, The Maldives

If you have a soft spot for paradise, The Maldives is the place to visit at least once in your life. Kandolhu is a secluded island just a short 25-minute flight from the capital Male. The island is so small, you can easily explore all corners in a 15-minute walk. Kandolhu is quiet and feels more authentic from other resort in the Maldives. We would like to call it our home away from home, and here’s why.
