7 nights full board from £1,650 kandooma maldives

A speedboat ferries you across the turquoise waters from Malé International Airport to this contemporary resort hotel in just 40 minutes. Slip into island life from the moment you arrive...

Kandooma offers world-class South Malé Atoll diving and surfing on your doorstep. The funky beach villas ooze style and boast luxury touches like outdoor showers and iPod docking stations.  With cool, contemporary island design, this innovative Holiday Inn managed island resort brings a funky vibe to the Maldives. Experience utter relaxation but with myriad entertainment and activity on hand.

Grab a coffee and wood-fired pizza from the Bokkuraa Coffee Club beside the sparkling infinity pool, or unwind with a good book and views over the peaceful lagoon. You can indulge in a soothing Thai massage and beauty treatments in the Kandooma Spa, and book the Spa Suite's private garden with plunge pool for a romantic afternoon.

Learn to sail on a catamaran trip around the region's sandbanks and take it easy with alcohol-free cocktails on a sunset cruise. It's just 5 minutes by boat from Kandooma for diving and snorkelling among colourful tropical fish on the reef.

Face-painting and fun games keep the children entertained in the Kids' Club, while parents unwind with a game of tennis or a workout in the gym.

Dine on Western and Asian cuisines at the poolside Kandooma Café, recline on lounge pillows enjoying tapas and the perfect sundown location at The Deck, or experience live show cooking before a grandstand ocean view at the fabulous The Kitchen restaurant.  In the evenings, there's live music and movie nights and even crab racing!

Yoga classes are available in resort at a charge of $30 per hour for a private class.
