Dining at Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma

At Kandooma Café, greet the new day in the "Big Barnacle" in the company of sunshine, atoll waves and Radio Kandooma's breakfast show.

At The Lounge order up a cup of coffee or tea and settle back and listen to the diving stories told by the divers who hang out here.
