With festive gifting season well under way, now is the perfect time to consider gifts that will well and truly ‘wow’ loved ones. For many, this year has been far from what might be considered ‘normal’ with plenty of disappointments surrounding cancelled travel plans and the postponement of once-in-a-lifetime events. Now is the perfect time to surprise  loved ones with a gift like no other; the chance to make memories on the sand and in the depths of the stunning Indian ocean.

The ultimate seclusion and privacy

With many couples across the GCC region postponing weddings and honeymoons, now is a best time  to book a romantic getaway for that special someone. Many resorts in the Maldives feature full seclusion, if guests so choose. Kandima’s beach and ocean villas overlook nothing but the beach and ocean, with no fellow guest in sight.

Myriad of marine life

No trip to Maldives would be complete without a dip in the waters that are brimming with rich marine life. The Maldives is world-famous for its crystal clear waters and is considered to be one of the best snorkeling and diving locations in the world. Kandima Maldives has two house reefs which makes it exceptionally attractive as a destination, adventure-seekers can swim and bathe in the Indian Ocean amongst colourful corals, sea turtles, reef sharks, stingrays, and a multitude of other underwater species.

Live on the ocean

Kandima Maldives has a total of 79 overwater villas, with four unique designs that sit above the vast expanse of Indian Ocean. The island resort has 59 aqua villas, 28 of which house their own swimming pool for that extra special in-room treat. A further 18 of the overwater villas have their own private swimming pools, overlooking the ocean. The resort’s two exclusive Aqua Honeymoon villas are located at the tip of the jetty and are in a prime spot for watching stunning Maldivian sunsets. What makes these two villas extra special is that they feature a huge infinity pool each.
