Kandima resort in the Maldives prides itself on providing the perfect holiday setting for all of its guests. There’s the luxurious perfect isolation for honeymooners and couples, as well as family-friendly activities and venues for multi-generational travellers. But let’s be honest: children (and adults) need time out from each other – even in paradise! So, we’d like to tell you about Kandiland, Kandima’s fantastic kids’ club that has its own impressive facility in the resort, on the ocean-side of the island.
Kandiland is run by a team of dedicated multilingual fully-qualified staff. The building is bright and impressive. Had we spent longer on Kandima, Millie-Mae and Toby would have loved to spend some time here. But we did make time for a tour of the facilities.
The indoor space is open-plan, with zones depending on age and activity. It’ all very brightly coloured. Play mats, activity tables, ball pits, ride ons, play tunnels, reading rug … surrounded by lots and lots of storage filled with craft materials.
Around the corner you find a flat-screen TV, comfy sofa, beanbags and games console.
Perfect for a chill out session or some light competitive gaming! I also spot a wooden train set and LEGO wall.
The activities continue outside. This amazing space has so much going on. The central feature is a huge pirate play ship with climbing walls, tunnels, slides and cannons. It is actually a water feature; I can’t think of a better way to keep cool!
Sunken trampolines, table tennis, another climbing wall and exercise bars are balanced out with seating areas and picnic tables to relax and socialise at.
And all this overlooks the ocean.

You can access the daily activity schedule on your TV in your villa or apartment. It’s a very comprehensive timetable! For instance, while we were staying on Kandima the following Kandiland activities were offered …
Day 1 – Friendship bracelets ♥ water games ♥ rock painting ♥ tattoo and henna ♥ craft making ♥ society games

And I also spotted activities that included hair braiding, yoga, flower making, kite flying and beach volleyball. To be honest – your children might not actually want to spend much time with you on your family holiday!! Oh, and did I mention that they can collect your children from your villa?
There can’t be many kids’ clubs in the Maldives that come close to what Kandiland offers. And … it’s all complimentary! Your children can dip in and out of the activities. What a great way to make new friends. Very Kool 🙂
