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.
Komandoo is located at the top of the Lhaviyani Atoll, about 130 kilometers north of Male’ International Airport. The transfer is a scenic 40 minute seaplane flight over the North Male’ and Lhaviyani Atolls.
This offers breathtaking views of reefs and lagoons and their multiple shades of blue and aquamarine, before bringing you to the landing platform at Komandoo.
