Welcome to the K’News

September is almost here and the K ’adrenaline is at its peak! We are ready to Bring It On! We can’t wait to welcome you back again to the place where (almost) everything is possible and boredom simply does not exist!

In this issue of K’ News, it’s all about your active lifestyle @ Kandima! We’re super excited to share the launch of our green sustainability initiative ‘The Fresh Labs’. We also take a closer look at the fantastic wellness offerings here at Kandima and the specially tailored mind & body sessions at the Eskape Spa! After that, explore and dive into the blue with Kandima’s unmatched water activities for the slow Kayaker to the shark seeker! And while you browse through some krazy deals, it’s also time to meet the Krew who promises to make your vacay a treat for the mind, body & soul!
We hope you enjoy the read and assure you of a Lifestyle Reimagined at Kandima, Maldives.

Tropical Regards,
your Kandima Krew


At Kandima, we believe in being environmentally responsible and take sustainability very seriously. Why import something from thousands of kilometers away when with a little extra effort it could be produced locally at almost the same cost and by doing so bring numerous benefits to local communities and the environment?

We proudly present to you ‘THE FRESH LABS’, a Kandima farm to table initiative to get the freshest local Maldivian produce sourced from the green island farms located at Kandima & our surrounding islands. Our aim is to reduce our dependence on imported produce and instead support local producers to ensure we always have the greenest and freshest salads on our table.

Our local green initiative makes us one of only a few island resorts in Maldives to take a serious yet critical step towards local sustainability and all-round wellness of our guests.

Tune in for more news on #TheFreshLabs soon!
