Universal Resorts is expanding its global portfolio with a new property on Kandolhu Island in the Maldives.

 Set to welcome its first guests on 11 January 2014, Kandolhu is a small lush island, ringed by an intricate yet stunning coral garden. Intimate and bare, this tiny gem is encircled with wide beaches that are veiled by the emerald green ocean that Maldives is known for.

Following an investment of US$ 12 million, the island will feature just 30 rooms in 5 different categories, both on land and over the water.

Located in the heart of the Maldives, in North Ari Atoll, the island can be reached by a 20 minutes seaplane.

Though it is designed to 5-star levels, the island will focus more on giving its guests an “island experience” instead of a typical stay at a hotel.

Guests can walk around the island barefoot in just minutes and snorkel one of the best house reefs in the Maldives, rich in both coral and fish life, and easily accessible from the island.

Guests can choose to go on bed and breakfast, and plan your day as you go, or you can book full board and have access to various à la carte restaurants on the island – or indulge in luxury, Kandolhu style, by going all inclusive where you will be set for your entire stay.

Facilities available on the island include 4 restaurants, 1 bar, spa with 4 treatment rooms, diving, non-motorised water sports, excursions and a fitness room.

General Manager, Abdul Latheef describes Kandolhu as “...something very unique for the Maldives, where islands of this size is very rare. This will be an experience that will offer a Maldives, that is not typically seen by the numerous tourists that visit our island nation. Kandolhu is the perfect combination of “small island Maldives” and affordable luxury. It is an island that will make you feel like Robinson Crusoe, just with several luxuries at your disposal. It is an island where you go to find quietude and peace, and it is an island on which you will have absolute time alone with your loved one.”
