Absolutely fabulous

Snorkeling paradise
The staff at Kondolhu were very professional and went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. The small island is quiet and private with an amazing house reef and excellent food. Went on a manta ray excursion one morning and saw about 10 mantas, but spent most days exploring the house reef. This was our second trip and we hope to visit again soon.
