LOCATION

It is in the Maldives, at the crossroads of the Indian Ocean and the Laccadive Sea, that you will have the pleasure to discover Club Med Kani ****. A true little Eden, this absolutely sumptuous hotel on the island of Kanifinolhu, surrounded by turquoise waters and bordered by fine sandy beaches, is simply breathtaking.

Its idyllic location makes it a paradise for surfers in search of sensations, couples looking for a cocoon of calm, and families wishing to spend an extraordinary holiday on a paradise island. Palm trees, coral reefs, deckchairs… what more could you ask for?

To reach this extraordinary establishment, all you have to do is take a seaplane or a boat (30 minutes) from the international airport of Male, the capital of the Maldives.

 

DESCRIPTION

Imagine bright sunshine, long sandy beaches, turquoise sea as far as the eye can see… Welcome to Kani! Specially designed to welcome the most demanding families, this luxurious establishment is divided into two parts: the beach where the top-of-the-range bungalows are set up and the sea itself where the incredible La Manta houses on stilts spread out like tentacles.

Combining comfort, practicality and tailor-made services, Kani offers its guests the guarantee of a heavenly stay on an island designed to meet their every need. Dine with your feet in the white sand watching the stars, dive into the Indian Ocean directly from the private terrace of your suite, fly over the island and its surroundings by parasailing… No, you’re not dreaming, all this and much more is possible at Kani.

The all-inclusive formula includes: Kids-Club from 4 to 17 years old, all meals at the restaurant, drinks at the bar, entertainment, sports and other activities!

With its 153 rooms and 75 suites, the Kani offers a wide range of accommodation options. All rooms were renovated in 2017 and now feature modern, colourful and attractive decor. The hotel offers its guests:

  • Superior rooms, Deluxe, and Suites on stilts
  • 3 restaurants
  • 4 bars
  • 1 outdoor infinity pool with children’s area
  • 1 fitness room
  • 1 football pitch
  • Countless activities and excursions for young and old alike
  • Many courses: yoga, fitness, flying trapeze, sailing, water skiing, surfing, scuba diving, etc… adapted to all levels.
  • 1 spa MANDARA
  • 1 kids-club (from 4 to 10 years old)
  • 1 teen-club (from 11 to 17 years old)

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

The rooms of the Kani are like the garden island that shelters it: sumptuous!  From the beach, you will have only a few steps to reach your bungalow which, decorated in the blue lagoon and coral red tones reminiscent of the surrounding nature, offers all the comfort and space necessary for families. If you prefer to live with your feet in the water, opt for a house on stilts. Clad in teak and exotic wood, it extends over 70 sqm and features a private terrace with direct access to the lagoon. The hotel offers different categories of rooms and suites, here are a few examples:

The Superior Beach Room. Installed on the ground floor or the first floor of a bungalow, this air-conditioned room of 29 to 42 sqm offers a breathtaking view of the lagoon and has a capacity of 4 people. It is therefore perfect for families. With its outside space (balcony or terrace), its double bed, its bathroom with double basin and its separate toilet, it offers all the necessary comfort. In addition to the possibility of adding a baby bed in the room, it is also possible to connect it to another room via a connecting door!

The Deluxe Room and its 38 to 42 sqm. From this incredible room, you will only have to cross your wooden terrace to reach the ocean, with your feet in the sand. Double bed, terrace furnished with deckchairs, sitting area arranged around a comfortable sofa, not forgetting the bathroom with double washbasin… here, life is beautiful. Bonus: the open-air outdoor shower to relax out of sight, in complete osmosis with nature. Note that it is possible to add a baby cot to this room, which was originally designed for 3 people.

For a truly exceptional stay, opt for the Suite on Stilts and its panoramic view of the lagoon and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Accessible to children from the age of 8, this palatial suite with its false air of a fisherman’s hut is absolutely incredible. Thanks to its double bed, directly facing the bay window, you will wake up facing the sea and will only have to take a few steps to dive into it, directly from your private terrace. Icing on the cake, the suite is equipped with a bathroom with shower, double washbasin and above all… an extraordinary bathtub offering a panoramic view on the ocean.

 

GASTRONOMY

The Velhi offers international cuisine and traditional Asian dishes, as well as a daily selection of dishes adapted to a lighter diet. Let yourself be tempted by the original recipes concocted by chef Samantha Gowing. In addition to a terrace for outdoor dining, Le Velhi has high chairs for babies.

For a taste of local specialties, head to Kandu! Situated above the lagoon, in the shade of coconut trees, this restaurant serves food at any time of the day. In the evening, however, you will need to make a reservation to enjoy one of the two menus on offer.

The Kaana will delight finger food lovers. Asian soups, tapas, sandwiches… perfect for eating on the go.

In addition to its restaurants, Kani also has 4 bars, including the Sunset Bar next to the swimming pool, where you can comfortably admire the sunset, and the Iru Bar, nestled on the edge of the lagoon, which offers a breathtaking view on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, all with your feet in the sand.

The Manta Exclusive Collection Beach Bar is the latest addition to the Kani. This new beach bar will welcome you all day long for a breakfast, a pancake or an aperitif at the end of the day.

More exclusive, the Manta Exclusive Collection Lounge is a panoramic bar on stilts offering delicious cocktails. Champagne is served every evening from 6pm.

FOR THE CHILDREN

A true paradise for all, the Kani knows how to pay special attention to its youngest guests. The two kids-clubs (for children on the one hand and teenagers on the other) are the most convincing example of this.

From 4 to 10 years old, the children have 3 activity rooms at their disposal; books, musical instruments, adapted games and colourful footstools make them happy. The activity leaders compete in inventiveness to offer them varied and fun activities: sandcastle competitions, treasure hunts, puzzles to solve, etc.

From 11 to 17 years of age, your teenagers will be able to take part in sports tournaments (football, beach volleyball, badminton, etc.), games of skill and logic as well as creative activities and excursions on and around the island, always under the benevolent supervision of the hotel staff.

In addition to these exceptional kids-clubs, the Kani offers a lot of activities for children of all ages. There are singing, dancing and circus shows, baking workshops, snacks on the beach, but also sailing lessons, water polo matches and many water activities (jet-ski, surfing, catamaran and much more.)

FAMILY EXPERIENCES

As you can see, your children will have plenty of thing to do on their own. However, if you wish to share good times with them, rest assured, Kani has everything planned. On the program: parasailing, kayaking, sea scooters, towed buoys, catamaran trips, scuba diving and many other surprises.

The crystal-clear waters of the Maldives are teeming with marine life. To discover the wonders of the deep, book a snorkelling trip! During this exciting adventure you will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of colourful fish, as well as sea turtles, sharks and various types of corals.

Do you want to gain height while enjoying the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean? Take off on a flyboardadventure. This unique activity propels you up to 15 meters in the air before plunging back underwater, adrenaline guaranteed! Far from being dangerous, this activity is suitable for the whole family. While mom and dad will be able to fly on their own, children from 5 to 12 years old will be accompanied by an experienced instructor. Those over 12 years old will be able to launch on their own, under the supervision of a dedicated instructor.

After the sport, a bit of relaxation! Under the guidance of the hotel biologist, you will have the unique chance to create your own coral habitat. The principle is simple: choose the size of the metal frame you prefer, attach the coral of your choice to it and place it in the sea to create a new reef for the fish to explore. You will then be able to follow the evolution of your coral thanks to photos published regularly online. In addition to contributing to the preservation of one of the most beautiful places in the world, this activity is sure to offer you an incredible moment of sharing with your family.

Because holidays also rhyme with culture, Kani also offers several excursions organized around the habits and customs of the region. Discover Male, the capital, become a master of traditional Maldivian angling or embark on a sunset cruise, the choice is yours.

FOR PARENTS

After entrusting their children to the hotel’s babysitting service, parents will be able to go to the spa by MANDARA! In the heart of the idyllic setting of the island, discover one of the oldest Asian rituals, between beauty and exotic luxury. Combining Balinese traditions and European techniques, the spa team will be able to satisfy your every desire.

If you are a sports fan, you will make the most of the cardio-training room at your disposal but also of the various sports fields (football, beach volleyball, badminton) and the numerous courses offered by the Kani staff. Yoga, fitness, flying trapeze, meditation… there’s no lack of choices for a good workout.

Finally, to end the day on a high note, treat yourself to dinner on the beach and party all night long at parties organised by the hotel. Start the evening with a white dinner on the sand to enjoy a choice of barbecued seafood, Indian specialities or French dishes, then as the night progresses, enjoy a wild party to the rhythm of live music.
