After crazy year 2017, we were finally able to keep our vacation with my wife. And of course, we headed to the best place to relax, Maldives. This was our third time in Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma
and it will not be the last.
I contacted the hotel in advance, due some booking issues I had. The guest services answered very quickly, every time and we were able to finish booking as planned, although wit two separate bookings. Again, this was no issue at all.
Our relaxation started right away as we arrived to Maldives. The hotel staff took care of our arrival and made sure that our travel to the hotel went fine. Guest services were able to fulfill our requests about accommodation perfectly, thanks for that!
The hotel is in good condition and surroundings are clean and well maintained.
Room was in good condition, clean and fresh. AC is working fine and also the wireless worked very well too.
We had daily lunch in Bokkuraa and dinner mostly in The Kitchen. This was good solution for us. Food was great every day and I can highly recommend The Kitchen to everyone. Have dinner there, you will not be disappointed! We also had dinner once on the beach, due the good offer for Valentines day. It was very well organized and the dinner was perfect!
If I need to make one negative comment, it is about the Dine In event in The Kitchen. The food and service were great but the DJ with loud music was strange. I would rather listen to the ocean and the wind in this kind of unique place than popular music by DJ. Music I can hear in mass tourist places around the Mediterranean Sea..
But the absolute best thing is the staff. Everyone was always smiling and doing their best to make our vacation perfect. Everyone greeted and helped us when needed. Kandooma has the best hotel staff that I have ever met. Special thanks goes to Joby and his team in the Kitchen. You do wonderful job and made our dinners perfect. Special thanks to Retheesh and his colleague and team. He always greeted us with smile, asked how we were doing and made personally sure that our lunch, or any visit at the restaurant areas were great. Thanks my friends, keep up the good work.
I can highly recommend Kandooma to everyone. We sure will return to this resort as soon as we can. The helpful staff, good service and outstanding location makes this place magical. [Less]
