It really is Paradise!

United Kingdom

We visited Komandoo at the start of February. From the minute you get off the sea plane we knew it was going to be a holiday to remember. We walked down the jety to be met by a welcome song sung by the staff, some fresh coconut juice and coconut ice cream! We choose the all inclusive package in a water villa. The villa (Eagle Ray 6) was beautiful and exceptionally clean. Every day you wake up to the views of the blue sea and it is breathtaking. We also loved the nespresso machine in the room and the jucuzzi bath! You are assigned a staff member for housekeeping and we got Ibrahim. He was so polite, friendly and kept our room spotless for the time we were there. Everyday he would make a different towel oragami on our bed which was a nice touch. The food in the restaurant as part of the all inclusive is cooked fresh and there is so much choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every night they have a different theme which I really liked E.g Greek , German etc, which meant there was a good variety of food for the week we stayed. Our waiters Nadha, Hussain and Wahhab were so attentive and made us feel so welcome to the resort! Also thank you to Arun who took us for a Curry class which was interesting and tasted delicious! Every day we went snorkelling on the house reef. The wildlife was incredible , we saw lots of turtles, a porkupine ray, an octopus, lobsters, small black tip sharks, moray eels and lots of different types of fish! The resort manager, Solah, was so friendly and even came out snorkelling with us two of the mornings , showing us the best places to go in and pointing out different wildlife within the corals that we would’ve missed! We also paid to go on the Manta Ray snorkelling boat trip and we swam with two mantas which came within about 2 metres of us. I would highly recommend this trip. If you don’t want to pay for a boat trip, the sunset cruise is free if you are all inclusive and we did it one evening. We managed to see a large pod of dolphins which swam around our boat. Again another incredible experience I won’t ever forget! The bars at Komandoo are great, with lots of choices on the all inclusive package! Would recommend the Passion fruit martini or the strawberry daquari. Thanks to Asifa and Vipin who always ensured we had a drink in our hand! I also used the spa whilst we were there and got a 90 minute aromatherapy massage. The ladies were very professional and my massage was so relaxing. In summary, we loved Komandoo so much we are already looking at dates for when we can come back! Thanks again to all the staff who made our holiday unforgettable!

Dream vacation at Komandoo!

Stockholm, Sweden

Our stay at Komandoo exceded all of our expectations! We celebrated a 50th birthday, wedding ceremony and honeymoon under our 11 day visit. The team at Komandoo made us feel very special and did above and beyond to make our celebrations memorable for life! The staff is friendly and service minded and were very keen to make sure we were satisfied and accommodated any requests we had. The food is fantastic, the best all-inclusive we’ve ever had! The mini-bar in the room was included and filled every day. We had our own personal waiter throughout the whole stay and Amar took well care of us. We opted for a wedding package & photographer and it was a dream wedding come true! The package included a wedding planner, his & hers spa, make-up & hair, wedding ceremony, candle light dinner on the beach and champagne breakfast at our villa. It was amazing! My husbands birthday lunch was spent at the 5.8 restaurant at the sister island. It was a once in a lifetime experience! The restaurant is 5.8 meters below surface and to see the fishes that surrounded us while enjoying a wonderful lunch and great wine pairing was outstanding! We are thankful we got to experience paradise at Komandoo and hope to visit the island again in the near future!
