England Rugby star Piers Francis takes k’ool Kandima Break


The Kandima krew are having a ball working out al fresco this week with special Beach Rugby Fitness classes taken by rugby star Piers Francis.

The English Rugby Union player jetted to the resort situated on the Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives with girlfriend Amanda McClatchie, after being given a rare week off by his club.

“Kandima is above and beyond anything I had hoped for, ” says Piers. “It’s incredible! It’s like nothing I’ve experienced before and having soaked up some sun for a few days, I am looking forward to enjoying some of the many activities available.”

Like all sportspeople, Piers has to pay attention to his diet and he’s in the right place. There are 10 restaurants and bars at Kandima Maldives and each offers a range of delicious, healthy options.

Piers, who has regular kicking sessions with Jonny Wilkinson can continue with his fitness regime at the resort’s fully air-conditioned gym Burn, but he can also chill and enjoy a soothing deep tissue massage at the awesome esKape spa – at Kandima you get to hear the ocean crashing on the beach during your massage!

Piers and Amanda are staying in an over water Aqua Villa with a Jacuzzi that has stunning views of the Indian Ocean.
