A great holiday in Maldives

This is my 1st stay at Club Med kani, it was a great experience. You will never get bored with the activities. The Club Med crew are generally friendly and nice, they come from all over the world.
Overall stay was pretty good. Club med  provides everything in the package (accommodation, food & activities)
They have 2 restaurants
VELHI - International cuisine and traditional Asian cuisine buffets.
Club Med crew will dress up in the theme of that day and greet you. The specialties of the day (e.g. tuna sashimi, roast beef, grilled chicken, squid salad) are displayed near the entrance.  There are several live stations where staff are preparing and dishing out food on individual plates for guests. There's always a great selection of western, chinese, japanese, indian food.
KANDU - A fine dining restaurant.      
This fine dining restaurant also part of the package but requires reservation the day before. Chef-on-duty runs the restaurant excellently with top notch food and well-trained service staff. Sit near the edge and you can watch baby sharks, crane, reef fish, stingrays, and eels as you dine. While you don't get the same variety as you do at VEHLI  buffet restaurant, the quality of the food is extremely good. They also provide snack service during the day.
Sunset Beach Bar and Iru bar
Sunset Beach Bar open in the late afternoon and evening. You can watch the sun go down and the starry night sky in this setting striaght out of paradise.
Iru bar gives you a magnificent view over the turquoise waters of the lagoon. Drinks are all inclusive in the package. So enjoy yourself.
I'm having fun with all activities because they are all great and professionally executed. I'd recommend you setting aside time to try every one!
Zumba - this high energy fun workout by the beach is taught by the "GO", great guy who is a great dancer.
Scuba diving - Sign up at the dive centre, operated by Euro Divers, that opens from 4-6pm daily. They conduct two dives, one in the morning to slightly further sites and one in the afternoon. The dive team is very professional and  safety conscious.
Dance lesson - It was taught by the "GO" by the beach. For the two times we were there, he was teaching salsa.
Sailing - Sign up at 9.30am daily because the afternoon slots get booked up fast. They have four sail boats. If you don't know how to sail, you can sign up for free lessons.       

Aquarobics - Held once a day just before lunch, the GO got us laughing and having lots of fun!                                                                  

Yoga - The GO does more stretching in the morning and relaxation during the sunset yoga. Come in flip flops because sometimes they have it out on the beach.

Nightly show - After dinner each night, the GO's put a great effort into the evening show. Amazed they can have so much energy to perform Michael Jackson dances each night and power-packed too! Gets a little mundane cause it mostly dancing. Different themes each night. We missed the comedy night - too tired to stay up after a whole day of activities! But kudos to the team for their hard work, after working the whole day to attend and serve the guests, they still need to entertain us. They are great and thank you for their excellent service.
