Kandooma Surf Resort in the Maldives offers the best surf holiday in the world hands down, and right now we are offering 20% off all bookings.

Former WCT touring professional Sean Holmes has travelled the world extensively. Sean took his family to Kandooma last September and said, “I can thoroughly recommend Kandooma as the ultimate family surf holiday destination. It has something for everyone. The waves are incredible, the food, diving, accom and everything else was all time.”

Even better news is the fact that we have an epic, exclusive special to offer all clients who book before April 30. The Perfect Wave are offering – 20% off all accommodation and 50% off airport transfers.

Here are the top 10 reasons why Kandooma is the #1 family surf holiday in the world:
a

  1. Easy to get to:
  2. Located in the South Male Atoll, Kandooma Island is a relatively short and very safe 45-minute speedboat ride from the capital Male. After your flight, you’ll be out of the airport and jumping in the pool or paddling out for a surf in under an hour.

  3. Minimum surfer numbers:
    We cap the number of surfers who stay at Kandooma. There are always enough waves to go around, even for the younger or less experienced surfers in the family. There’s also 6 other waves in the area that cater for all levels – lefts and right. Riptides rights are highly rippable and Foxy’s lefts are super hollow.

  4. The Family Beach House option is epic:
    With sleeping space upstairs and living and dining areas below, these comfortable, 2-bedroom family villas are big enough for everyone to have their own personal space to relax inside or out on the front deck in the sun.

  5. The closest accommodation to the surf:
    Kandooma Right is barely 30 meters from your villa. Check the surf from your bed. Paddle out for a quick session while the rest of the family sleep in, grab a bite to eat our your spouse takes a yoga lesson.

  6. Room to move:
    It takes about 20 minutes to walk around the perimeter, so Kandooma Island is big enough for guests to find their own little corner of calm and serenity under a palm tree, with plenty of pristine, beautiful beaches for those with kids who love to play in the sand.

  7. The Perfect Wave surf guides, instructors and surf centre:
    It’s not just a surf trip for surfers. These trained professionals will find a wave for every skill level, to make sure the whole family can get in on the action. You can learn on the sandbar, go for a SUP at Riptides, take a dhonni to Foxy’s, so many options and so much variety wave wise. Also, don’t stress if you run out of room in your surfboard bag or forget some surf gear at home. Purchase or hire every kind of surfboard imaginable, leashes, wax, board shorts, reef-boots and surf hats. The Perfect Wave Surf Experience Centre stocks anything and everything you need on your surf holiday.

  9. Swimming pools, spa and fitness facilities:
    Nothing beats a few laps in the infinity pool overlooking the lagoon, or enjoy an after surf sunset session in the Jacuzzi pool, or let your young ones tire themselves out for early bedtime in the Kids pool.You can also unwind with a therapeutic massage or spa treatment at the COMO Shambhala Spa with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, or keep your muscles toned in the fully equipped Fitness Centre.

  10. There’s a real variety of surf set ups in the region.
    Yes Kandooma Right is straight out fron, but there’s also a cool sand bar for learners. You can also grab a dhoonni from the wharf and take a pleasant 10 minute ride to Riptides which is a super eippable right for all levels, or Foxy’s a super hollow left and a bunch of other set ups too.
    a
  11. Extra Services and tropical island activities:
    To list everything you can do on or around Kandooma Resort to make your family surf holiday a memorable one is almost impossible. But for a start I can highly recommend the dolphin cruise, ocean kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving, castaway picnics on deserted atolls, fishing, beach volleyball and football, nature walks, hermit crab races, campfire tales, and just enjoying a drink and a snack with your loved ones while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. The Perfect Wave also runs yoga classes for all levels at the resort with an experienced instructor. The vinyasa-style yoga class will help combine the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your holiday to transcend you into a family full of complete wellness and relaxation. Visit the aquarium for a close up look at marine life you’d have a hard time catching a glimpse of in the wild. The resident marine biologists will be more than happy to answer any of your families questions or provide information about the plentiful Maldivian sea creatures. There’s also free wireless Internet In your accommodation or the activity lounge, and Kids Club “Kandoo” for ages 4 – 12 complete with an indoor air-conditioned play space, with a library, an arts & crafts are, a ball pit and interactive gaming zone will keep the little ones entertained for hours. There is also a babysitting service for when Mum and Dad want a romantic night out alone.
