My first trip to the Maldives, and the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives pulled out all the stops in making sure it was a memorable one. A 5 Star experience from the moment I was picked up at the airport, I sped across the ocean with the team repeatedly checking if I was ok, as we made the journey to the resort.
The hospitality, kindness and attention of the staff immediately heightened my experience. Free of covid and all safety precautions in place, one would forget that the world was in the midst of a global pandemic. The resort has ensured that your stay will make you feel that no other world exists other than that of the resort, a truly memorable experience.
A villa on the beach was everything I had ever dreamed of. White sands and crystal blue waters, I was waking up and going to sleep in heaven. Spacious rooms with a terrace and hammock for those afternoon reads, the ambience created by the resort is beautiful.
The outdoor shower allows you to be one with nature and truly adds to the experience of the resort.
The luxury of having a villa on the beach meant that one could star gaze every evening, falling asleep under the beauty of the stars with the sounds of the gentle waves washing against the golden sands. The thrill of being able to see a harmless Reef shark hammered home the beauty of nature but also the serene environment curated by the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives.
A large selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner allowed me to fully mix up my palate and cater my meals to my mood.
The ambience was calm and relaxing as you ate overlooking the pool and Indian ocean, one would strongly recommend that this is the only way to truly enjoy a meal.
Ensuring I utilize my time, the team organised a detailed itinerary. As a natural born explorer, I truly wanted to maximize my time at the resort. Management went over and beyond in organizing a schedule so that I could experience so many memorable moments. From a packed lunch sunset cruise to snorkeling with turtles, the trip was one of many exquisite firsts.
I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives for a truly five star experience that will not break the bank but make you feel that you have.
