Practically perfect in every way
Like many, we return to this paradise island time and time again. This was our 7th visit, and we are already planning our next visit. So many places you visit are somewhat disappointing - they do not live up to expectations. But not Komandoo. Every year, it exceeds our expectations. Beautiful beaches, colourful corals, which are starting to regenerate, thanks to the work of the Champions. Fantastic snorkelling, both in the lagoon, and the house reef. And turtles. Solah and all the Champions go out of their way to ensure that all visitors have a memorable time - from the fantastic food in the restaurants, fabulous spa treatments, and the wonderful cocktails while watching football in the bar. But most important - the wonderful warm smiles that greet you wherever you are. Now - if only I could persuade Solah to switch from Arsenal to Liverpool (ha ha) A truly exceptional place.
Our 3rd visit says a lot and booked again next year. Just as most of the reviews we really enjoy our hols here and have only praise for this resort and it’s staff. Led by Solar with his infectious leadership and amazing team who ensure we all enjoy our stay-they take nothing for granted. We were particularly impressed by Ricardo The chef-so visibly and enthusiastically producing some amazing food ably supported by some likewise incredible staff with such superb results. So many of the Champions made a real effort to ensure our stay was memorable including Salim,Wahid our room attendant-amazing, Ali our waiter-such a guy! Also in the Restaurant Shamil another talented waiter along with hostess Shefza-so welcoming! Also the great bar staff and front of house and a special mention for Hoque who has been keeping the beaches clean for 15 years and always has a smile. Also the ladies dressed in green who rake the leaves and keep the paths tidy. Not forgetting the champion who grows some amazing food and plants in the greenhouses And many more who always have time and a smile! We were on the west side which we prefer sunset side but it’s all great as others say Can only praise Solar and team for ensuring such unprecedented standards here-see you again next year
This is paradise!
Oh my oh my! What an island and not to mention all the Champions, with Mr Solah as Manager, that made our stay even greater! Just coming home from Komandoo (and Kuredu) celebrating our 25th anniversary. Komandoo is really paradise, its almost hard to describe with words, you need to experience it. White sandy beach, clear crystal blue water with fantastic sea life, so bring your equipment, or hire on Komandoo, so you can say hello to the fab world under the water. We stayed in a fantastic and big Jacuzzi water villa, next time we will stay in beach bungalow that really looks fantastic too. We were most surprised over the very good service and all the good food that was served, have never eaten so much in my life! So, if you are adults and really want to have a calm, warn, nice, friendly stay in the Maldives this is the place! We will be back for sure, soon we hope! A special thank you to the best waiter Shilaam, Mr Solah, Shifzna and Saeed who everyday surprised us with his fab art on the bed. Ps! Leave your shoes at home, you will not need them at Komandoo. Because if you need them you are overdressed:-). Ds. All the best Bessie & Kaj in villa EGR 02
As beautiful as ever
Our seventh trip to Komandoo and once more it did not disappoint. There have been a number of improvements since we last visited in 2018; an improved AIP package , refresh of JBV’s (much lighter now) and extended seating areas at the Thundi and Kandu bars; In addition Aqua the a la carte restaurant which we ate at three times during our stay has in our view reached new heights both in terms of food quality and personalised service providing a great venue for special occasion dining. The island was also looking particularly lush and colourful and clearly a lot of effort has gone into this There is a also a new (for us) executive chef Ricardo whose Italian dishes were sublime much to the detriment of our waist lines. All else remains as we remember and often dream about. Amazing staff/champions fantastic reef, sublime spa ,wonderful food and totally laid back vibe. It was lovely to see our Komandoo friends ( now very aptly named Champions) again who without exception went out of their way to welcome us back. Special thanks to our waiter Riza for taking the time to take us snorkelling to show us the best spots. Hopefully will be with you all again soon x
We just ended a week @ Komandoo and we have had a fabulous experience. The Champions do their utmost to make you holidays dream and this starts with the efficient transfer and arrival. The villas are lovely and very clean (as the whole island is) particularly when on the water as you can go fish spotting straight from your terrasse. The island is small with 65 accommodations so you easily get the Robinson Crusoe feel and the plants are very well taken care of. Food is great with a large variety and always good quality. You get a few activities to do which obviously includes diving but if you are in for all the water motor sports fun, this is not the best place. Friendliness of staff really makes you feel your are part of something. Looking forward to be back soon.
