Komandoo is located in the Lhaviyani Atoll, 130 kilometres north of Male and is a charming, elegant tropical island and home to a 40 year old coconut plantation. It measures just 100 metres wide and 500 metres long, with white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoon and a magnificent house reef providing excellent snorkeling and diving - a great place to see mantas, turtles or rays.
The island's luxury accommodation is in Beach Villas, Jacuzzi Beach Villas or the romantic Jacuzzi Water Villas. The wooden Beach Villas are attractive and spacious with a large, furnished wooden terrace overlooking the beach while the Jacuzzi Beach Villas have secluded tropical gardens, a wooden deck and a Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi Water Villa is on wooden columns in the beautiful south lagoon with a large furnished terrace and sundeck with steps down to the water.
The bar, restaurant and spa are all housed in Maldivian in style with thatched roofs. There's a romantic open-air restaurant on the water, serving gourmet cuisine or you can, of course, enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach at sunset with a glass of Champagne. The new a-la-carte restaurant, Aqua, is built on stilts above the water and offers a variety of dining options from bed and breakfast to Gold All-inclusive which is designed to offer guests the very best cuisine. There's a small Internet café and a well-stocked shop selling handicrafts, clothes and everyday items too.
The experienced staff at Komandoo ProDivers (5-star PADI Dive Centre) will guide you around the Lhaviyani Atoll using modern equipment, offering a variety of dive courses with no extra charge for Nitrox diving. There are more than 40 dive sites around Komandoo all within a 45 minute boat trip with day, early morning and night dive excursions, alternatively you are free to dive at the house reef close to the beach.
Discover total wellness at the Duniye Spa - simply choose one of the treatments on the spa menu and totally relax into your holiday. When all the pampering becomes a little too much (if that could be possible!) set off in one of the canoes and paddle round the island or if the wind picks up try your hand at windsurfing. - both are complimentary to guests. Swim a few lengths of the infinity pool with its wonderful ocean views, tone up at the gym, play a game of badminton, table tennis or volleyball – the options are endless.
In addition Komandoo offers a good range of trips & tours - play Robinson Crusoe for a day on your very own desert island, take a snorkel safari or set sail aboard "Britt", the island's luxury sailing yacht, for a sunset or day time cruise - it's up to you!
