Komandoo Maldives Island Resort

Komandoo island resort is set within a crystalline lagoon and offers the laid back sense luxury that can only be found in the Maldives. The island is full of rich, tropical green vegetation and towering palm trees which provide welcome respite from the endless sunshine. Days can be idled away on immaculate white sandy beaches, or floating languidly in the tranquil lagoon, while the freshwater infinity pool offers up views over the sparkling ocean.

Water lovers can relish in a selection of watersports, from adrenaline boosting parasailing and windsurfing, to paddleboats and canoeing. The award winning Dive Centre will take you to some of the world’s most impressive dive sites, or you can choose to snorkel if you want to stay closer to the surface.

Komandoo’s award winning Duniya Spa will pamper and relax you with a tempting menu of holistic and therapeutic treatments. Cocktails are served up from one of two beach bars and delectable dining options are available.

Holiday at Komandoo

The best vacation ever. A beautiful place with fantastic food, friendly staff and clean beaches. The "best" side is the one with jacuzzi villas. The other side have a local Island across the sea and not as good wiew. However, it doesnt matter because overall its just great. I will go back and I recomend everybody to visit Komandoo.

We've said it before: We LOVE Komandoo ❤️. From the moment we step off the seaplane we feel at home. We have just enjoyed our 11th holiday on this magical island and hope to return again and again (we've already booked our next one!) We describe each visit as "perfect" and yet we are surprised every time by subtle changes which we hadn't previously noticed as necessary, yet continue to enhance the holiday experience. This year the rooms have been updated to provide better lighting and international power-points so there's no need to take an adapter. Sun parasols are installed over the sun beds outside each beach villa. The Thundi Bar has been extended to provide additional relaxation space and "Aqua Restaurant " now opens as a sundowner bar for drinks each evening regardless whether you are eating there (but don't tell anyone - we enjoyed having the deck to ourselves at sunset!) Over recent years erosion has been a major problem particularly around the Thundi Bar. This is being addressed with additional installations and repair of existing breakers around the Lagoon. These are successfully manipulating tides and currents to naturally deposit additional sand on the beach. The area is being restored to its former beauty without the need of sand-pumps which might have had a negative effect on the surrounding house reef. Congratulations to whoever instigated this. Previous reviews and the website describe the island. Believe it all. If you love peace and (child-free) quiet, excellent cuisine, first-class snorkelling/diving, friendly staff and fellow guests in an extremely beautiful, comfortable environment, then you will probably enjoy Komandoo as much as we do.
