    Restaurant they own two main restaurant for dining and other several bars , but there is one very interesting with Chines touch but mainly for seafood where the fish , Lobster ,crab all are alive and can choose to cook for you.
    Cousin i nice and delicious
    At resort there is GYM, Yoga Club, Diving and water activities,and the most important for family that there is one of the biggest Kids club in Maldives with professional Nanny.
    So Parents may take a rest at the resort by keeping their kids at the kids club.
    As well there is one of the biggest swimming Pool 100 Mt very close to sea, furthermore a very nice long beach where sport and walking lover can walk and run along more than 1,5 kilo meter in front of sea and wonderful view.

    Остров располагается на Даалу атол, что в 30 минутах перелетом местными авиалиниями и 20 минут на скоростномс катере. Дорога нас не утомила..приятно что дельфины сопровождали нашу лодку и по приезду, и когда мы выезжали из отеля..Действительно дорога до отеля и обратно может превратится в легкую такую вот дельфин-экскурсию.
    Остров большой 3 км. Есть где разгуляться , инфраструктура так же балует, два больших бассейна, множество баров, спа, вотер спорт ,детский клуб, местный « старбакс» с продукцией отеля. ( конфеты,кофе, гамбургеры, чизкейки), ну и разумеется аля карт рестораны с меню налюбой вкус. Особо примечательно что в отеле очень экономичная ценовая политика, для Мальдив это очень низкие цены.
    По номерному фонду хотелосьбы отметить что номера сзамысловатыми названиями Beach Studio и Sky studio, представляют из себя двухэтажный блок на 4 номера, два на первом этаже этобич студио,два на втором этаже это скай студио. Не всем может понравится наличие соседей,Но с другой стороны если большая семья,можно купить 2 бич и 2 скай студио и жить комфортно как в одном огромном доме.
    Отдельностоящие номера уже идут как виллы.
    Персонал очень вежливый, говорят практически на всех языках.
    Сам остров очень живописный, зеленый, ухоженный и никаких комаров!
    Рекомендуем как для семейного отдыха, молодежным компаниям ( На острове есть клуб, проводится дискотека!) Это не мешает остальным отдыхающим так как клуб на воде…музыки не слышно для других гостей. Для молодожен кому нужна тишина и романтика..точно не сюда, а тем кому хочется провести отдых весело и активно-Добро пожаловать!

    Kandima – новый современный, динамичный отель, открылся в марте 2017 года. Расположен на самом крупном острове атолла Даалу, в 150 км от международного аэропорта Велана . Трансфер занимает 45 минут на гидросамолете, либо 30 минут на самолете внутренних авиалиний + 20 минут на лодке.
    Отель отличается широкой разнообразной инфраструктурой , так как размеры острова, в принципе, позволяют.
    Гостей ожидает один из самых длинных бассейнов на Мальдивах, разнообразные водные виды спорта, самый большой пляжный клуб, теннисный корт и баскетбольная площадка. Гости могут посетить центр изучения морских видов животных и художественную студию, принять участие в кулинарных мастер-классах.
    На территории отеля открыто 10 ресторанов и баров. В ресторане Sea Dragon подают блюда традиционной китайской кухни. Также, внутри данного ресторана имеется огромный аквариум с разными живыми морскими деликатесами, гости могут быть уверены, что ужин будет подан из самых свежих продуктов. В баре для взрослых Forbidden по вечерам звучит живая музыка, по пятницам караоке. В ресторане Aroma можно заказать прохладительные напитки и чудесную выпечку.
    В распоряжении маленьких гостей отеля есть детский клуб, профессиональные сотрудники которого говорят на нескольких языках. Каждый день для детей развлекательная программа, имеется кухня детских размеров где проводятся занятия по кулинарии , комната гле дети спят в обед, детский санузел и душевая. На территории острова , также, есть детский бассейн, расположеный отдельно от десткого клуба, где обязательно сопровождение родителей.
    Одним из неотъемлемых преимуществ отеля, также, является хороший домашний риф, который доступен с платформы , расположенный в 500 метрах от берега, но есть бесплатная лодка которая доставляет туда туристов 6 раз в день (3 раза утром и 3 раза вечером). Остров большой, красивый и ухоженный. Выдаются на прокат велосипеды и курсируют багги без остановок. За цену , что предлагает отель, очень достойный выбор для туристов ищущих нескучный рай на Мальдивах.

    Kandima is a new and modern hotel, opened in March 2017. Located on the largest island of Daalu Atoll, 150 km from the International Airport Velana. The transfer takes 45 minutes by seaplane, or 30 minutes by domestic flight + 20 minutes by speedboat.
    Due to the big size of the island the infrastructure of the hotel is also very rich.
    Guests can enjoy one of the longest swimming pools in the Maldives, a variety of water sports, the largest beach club, tennis court and basketball court. Guests can visit the marine center, an art studio, and take part in cooking classes.
    There are 10 restaurants and bars on the island. Sea Dragon’s restaurant serves traditional Chinese cuisine. Also, inside of this restaurant there is a huge aquarium with various live seafood delicacies, guests can be sure about the fresh dinner or lunch. The Forbidden Adult Bar offers live music in the evenings, karaoke on Fridays. Aroma Restaurant provides with refreshing drinks and wonderful pastries.
    At the disposal of the youngest guests of the hotel there is a kids club, where professional staff speaks several languages. Every day there is an entertainment program for children, there is a kitchen for children where cooking classes are held, where children can sleep in the afternoon, also children’s bathroom and a shower room. There is also a children’s pool on the island, located separately from the children’s club, where parents are required to accompany their kids.
    One of the important advantages of the hotel is also a good house reef, which is accessible from the platform, located 500 meters from the shore, but there is a free boat that takes guests there 6 times a day (3 times in the morning and 3 times in the evening). The island is big, beautiful and well maintained. Bicycle rental and non-stop buggy service is available on the island. For the price that the hotel offers, it is a very worthy choice for tourists looking for a not bored paradise in the Maldives.
