Kandooma Island is blessed with white sands, azure skies, lush tropical greenery and clear turquoise waters. To complement this, Kandooma Resort has created services intended to satisfy, engage, entertain, inform, educate and….. luxuriate.

 

Kandooma Island is 13 hectares in area or roughly about a 20 minute walk around the perimeter. It is located two thirds down the south eastern edge ofthe South Male Atoll, only 45 minute speedboat ride from the capital Male. Kandooma has beautiful white sandy beaches around a third of the island for those with kids who love to play in beach sand; or those prefer working on their tans on the beach rather than on the sun loungers around the pool.

 

With limited numbers at the resort, we can now guarantee that all surfers on Kandooma Island will be able to enjoy one of the best right handers in the Maldives uncrowded every day. We believe that there is no closer accommodation to take off zone in the world. You barely have to walk 30 metres from your villa to the paddle out point, and you literally lie in bed and watch the hollow and highly rippable waves peel down the point.

 

Join us for an unforgettable experience to practice yoga at the resort, one of the world’s most breathtaking locations. Weave together the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your holiday to transcend you into complete wellness and relaxation!

LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

THE MALDIVES, SOUTH MALE

 

Sitting in the Indian Ocean the Maldives are a group of coral islands straddling the equator southwest of India and west of Sri Lanka. There are about 1,200 islands and roughly 200 of those are inhabited. These low lying islands, isolated reefs and sand spits make up part of a larger formation of 26 atolls that formed around the edges of sunken volcanic peaks.

 

Ring shaped and situated atop a submarine ridge that runs from north to south, the atolls cover an area of approximately 90, 000 square kilometers. The average size of the islands is only one to two kilometers in area and most are flat with white sandy beaches, crystal clear reefs and deep blue lagoons. They sit just 1.5 meters above sea level, and with the highest point being only 2.4 meters above sea level, the Maldives are considered the flattest country in the world.

 

Climate & Seasons

The Maldives have a warm, year round tropical climate and is influenced by two monsoons courtesy of the Indian subcontinent to the north.  The southwest monsoon from May to October, called “halhangu”, will tend to see more wind and rain, while the northeast monsoon, called “iruvai”, from November to April is the dry season with little or no wind.

 

But due to the Maldives location on the equator, the monsoons are mild and do not always conform to the monsoon patterns of the Indian subcontinent.

 

The temperatures range from 25°C (77°F) to 33°C (90°F) throughout the year and there is an abundance of sunshine in this tropical paradise. That being said, the tropics can see its share of foul weather and tropical storms are rare but not unheard of during the summer months. The water temperature remains at about 26°C (80°F) all year round.
