A small, idyllic island with lovely beaches, great snorkelling and beautiful coral gardens.  Komandoo is a resort for adults, no children under the age of 18 are allowed on the island.  It is a peaceful island with a very laid back ambience and natural Maldivian character.  The food is excellent and staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful.  A popular island with our clients, many of whom return year after year for this impressive package at a reasonable price.

Komandoo is a small island measuring just 500 meters long and 100 meters wide, with a total of 69 room (14 of which are Water Villas).

It boasts a beautiful turquoise lagoon, a magnificent house reef with superb snorkelling and idyllic white sand banks at each end of the island.  The vegetation on the island  is tropical with a beautiful 40-year old coconut plantation being the highlight.  The Public areas are all built in picturesque Maldivian style, with thatched roofs and exquisite furniture.

Komandoo is perfectly situated in a channel opening, which makes it very interesting for divers and snorkelers.  Expect to see Turtles, Mantas, Sharks and Rays.  Sitting on the “Kandu Bar” terrace, it is often possible to see a school of dolphins playing as they pass by. The reef is easily accessible from the beach and has some of the finest coral gardens we have seen in the Maldives.

Accommodation is all detached, with the beach villas dotted around the beach perimeter and the cluster of water villas in the turquoise lagoon accessed by a decked walkway off one end of the island.  Villas are built of wood and have a natural, stylish décor with modern amenities.  Our particular favourite is the Jacuzzi Beach Villa which has a wonderful open private garden with jacuzzi tub.  All villas have a comfortable wooden deck area with furniture to relax and admire views of the Indian Ocean.

Being an adults only island, this is an ideal choice of resort for couples looking to relax in privacy or for Honeymoon couples.
