PUBLISHED March 06, 2023 | updated March 06, 2023 05:11

The Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is offering an egg-stra special program to welcome families this Easter. Families can enjoy a choice of accommodation options that include two- and three-bedroom villas located on the beach, within the garden landscape or overwater. The IHG’s Kids Stay & Eat Free program is also available for children under 12 who share the same room with their parents and use existing bedding.

Located in the South Male atoll, the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is a great choice for short breaks due to its easy accessibility. The resort has its own marine department that maintains and operates a fleet of boats that provide arrival and departure transfers to and from Velana International Airport, which is just a 45-minute speedboat ride away.

According to Mark Eletr, the General Manager of the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives, the resort's marine department is a valuable resource for guests who have questions about how to get to the island after arriving at the airport. He noted that unlike many of the outer-lying islands accessible by sea plane, the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is just a short boat ride away. Often, guests can secure complimentary boat transfers if they extend their stay or select one of the special offers such as the 4-night Easter Family Getaway that includes airport transfers.

The 4-night ‘Family Getaway’ package starts from US$1,038++ per night and includes accommodation in a 2-bedroom Family Beach House on a half-board basis with daily buffet breakfast and dinner at Kandooma Café, return speedboat transfers from Velana International Airport per villa, a beach barbecue once during the stay, Kandoo Kids' welcome amenities, a complimentary babysitting service for 3 hours per stay, and a “Kids Stay & Eat Free” program applicable to under 12s. Additionally, guests will enjoy complimentary laundry service per stay, complimentary Wi-Fi in the villas and public areas, and a minimum stay of 4 nights is required. Terms and conditions apply. To make a reservation, guests can email or visit

Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives offers several outlets to satisfy guests' culinary cravings, including poolside all-day dining at Kandooma Cafe with its international buffet, Bokkuraa Coffee Club & Bar offering an a la carte menu, BAR-AVeli Beach Bar for refreshing drinks and snacks throughout the day and into the evening, The Kitchen beachside a la carte dinner restaurant that is famed for its Seafood & Grill Thursday weekly promotion, and the must-visit Sunset Deck & Bar for sundowners with a view. Guests who prefer privacy will appreciate the in-villa dining menu, which can be conveniently ordered over the resort’s Smart Phone App for tech-savvy guests or by phone.

Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives offers family-friendly escapes that create memorable experiences for everyone. Children will enjoy the team at the resort's Kandoo Kids’ Club, which has a dedicated water zone and paddling pool, and all of the activities on offer, including an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday 9th April. The resort also offers complimentary pool snorkeling lessons for anyone who hasn't snorkeled before or just needs a refresher to build confidence. All snorkeling trips are supervised, and life jackets are encouraged for the little ones or less confident swimmers, so they can enjoy the experience with the rest of their friends or family.

Guests who prefer relaxation can take a short walk from their accommodation to the exquisite Kandooma Spa by COMO Shambhala, which offers luxurious treatments and massages designed to help them unwind completely
