KOMANDOO ISLAND RESORT & PRODIVERS, MALDIVES


Komandoo Island Resort and Spa from the air (Komandoo Island Resort & Spa)

Approximately 152km of Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, the tiny jungle-covered island of Komandoo rests in clear blue water that shades from the palest turquoise to the deepest ultramarine. The island is just 500 metres by 200 metres and benefits from a sheltered position just inside Lhaviyani (or Faadhippolhu) Atoll. The channel opening into the atoll offers terrific diving, with Manta Rays, sharks and turtles passing through. The magnificent house reef, probably the finest in the entire Maldives, is an easy dive and a great place to snorkel too.

Wooden villas are built along the perimeter of the island, with a choice of Beach Villas or Jacuzzi Beach Villas. A number of luxurious individual over-water bungalows were built in 2005: the Jacuzzi Water Villas. All the villas are individually built of local wood and have air-conditioning, in-room safe, telephone, refrigerator and tea and coffee making facilities. Beach Villas have a large wooden terrace overlooking the ocean with sun loungers for those relaxing moments. The attractive and modern bathrooms are partly open air and have walk-in showers. Jacuzzi Beach Villas overlook the Indian Ocean and are built on the eastern beach. These villas have spacious bedrooms with a four poster bed and a sitting area. They each have a secluded garden area and a wooden deck with a jacuzzi, as well as the same facilities as the Beach Villas. The fabulous Jacuzzi Water Villas are built on stilts above the ocean. Each villa has a screened sundeck with steps reaching down to the water below. The partly shaded terrace has a double sun lounger and a day bed so you can enjoy fantastic views of the ocean or watch the fish life below the water. The very spacious, romantic bedroom has a four poster bed and a sitting area close to patio doors that open on to the veranda and reveal panoramic views.

The 2 bars and 2 restaurants are built in local Maldivian style with thatched roofs. The restaurant deck extends over the water and is a great place to dine under the stars. For a truly romantic evening, chef will prepare a special meal and serve dinner ‘a deux’ on the beach!

Watersports enthusiasts are well catered for here, with canoes and windsurfing equipment available as a complimentary service. There is a small gym and facilities for badminton, table tennis and volleyball.

The sophisticated Duniye Spa (‘World Spa’ in Dhivehi, the language of the Maldives) offers an exquisite range of treatments by Thai, Balinese and Indian therapists. Massage and complimentary therapies are offered by highly trained professionals.

ProDivers are a PADI 5* Centre and are well known for their professional and efficient diving management. With almost 50 dive sites located within a 10-60 minutes boat ride there is a superb selection of top quality dive sites available. Dives are available every day and full day dive excursions are offered. House reef diving is available from four exit and entry points and from two jetties on either side of the island. Take a short walk along the jetty and you will find yourself right over the reef edge. Dive boats leave the island two times every day. There is no additional charge for Nitrox divers who are certified.
