Arriving at this cosy new resort and being personally greeted by managers Marc and Laura makes for a super-sunny welcome. Kandolhu is great for fans of water-based activities.

The island boasts a very lively reef, with an array of exotic fish, sharks and turtles. Take a morning snorkelling expedition with Adam, one of the resident watersports team, and you're guaranteed not to miss any of the marine life, while paddle-boarding later in the day is a great way to enjoy the sunset. Head to one of the resort's four restaurants for dinner. Check out the catch of the day at Sea Grill - the red snapper is exquisite.
