Enter the incredible Kandima Maldives Resort. 

Le Specs had the pleasure of exploring the country that is made up of over a thousand coral islands off the southwest coast of India. Maldives is a dream destination for obvious reasons of the golden sun, the whitest sand, clearest turquoise seas and amazing coral reefs. 

So really, what could be better than a few days on a tiny coral island in the middle of paradise? We're drawing a blank!

Switch off your minds and just completely, totally and utterly relax while we take you on a visual diary of Kandima Maldives and all that is on offer. Plus we want to show you how our jet-setting influencers are styling their holidays and travel tips from our very own creative, Hamish Tame.

How would you describe your holiday style?

Casual, yet festive. I love a good printed shirt to get into the holiday spirit! 🌺🍍

What’s your best tip for the plane ride?
Get yourself an Aesop face masque to stay hydrated on the plane. I apply it as soon as I’ve boarded, so I don’t feel dried up when I arrive.  

Where can we find you as soon as you arrive at your destination?
Walking around to get my bearings if it is a city, or diving into the water if there is a beach 🌊

Where can we find you on your first night on holiday?
Getting into the local cuisine. I always like to ask the hotel for their food and restaurant recommendations, because they’re generally more low-key and local than the top restaurants on ratings websites.

What drink are you ordering at the bar?
A spicy margarita or a whiskey sour please! 🍹 🍸

What are three packing essentials?
✔️Noise cancelling headphones – they make such a huge difference to having a peaceful flight.
✔️The Daily Edited phone charger – so I don’t stress when my phone is on its final 2%.
✔️A travel wallet – to keep your passport and tickets all together.

Who’s your current style icon?
Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Romeo & Juliet’ during the day, and Dickie Greenleaf from ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ in the evening
