Define "a problem"?

You can see it, hear the call to prayers, eh, and that's all I remember ...

It also provided a commuting opportunity for local female workforce - hadn't come across female Maldivian staff on any other Maldivian islands.

Kom is a lovely island. No, the adjacent local island didn't bother us (and we are going again), but we had a JBV on the sunrise side so we had an open, beautiful view.

It didn't bother us in the slightest, and we stayed on the side facing it twice.

Been 5 times and if we weren't in a watervilla we always chose the sunset side from which you see the neighbouring island of Hinnavaru - Karla is right, you sometimes hear the call to prayer but I think that's quite exotic!

Didn't bother us either didn't even notice it after few hours and the breeze on that side is a welcome relief from the heat,

Thank you all. The reviews are great. It's just some if the photos show the island and there seems to be sandbanks built all around. We have been to kerudu and olhuveli. So it's nice to get feedback for this island too

Any suggestions which side us best. We have booked a JBV

Sandbanks?

Request the sunrise side - which has only JBVs - if you want to face away from the local island. There are only a few JBVs on the sunset side (facing the local island) anyway.
