“Amazing Honeymoon destination”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We reached the resort to an amazing welcome of song and dance. The resort is extremely well-kept and the staff is helpful and friendly. We were staying at the water villas and the rooms are better than what they look in the pictures…trust me. The restaurants are on the other side of the water villas so it is a good 10 minute walk and the food was quite nice I must say. They had a different spread every day and the restaurant staff are well trained. A few things to note:
1. Set your watches the moment you arrive at the Resort to the timings they tell you else you will miss your buffets…We did. (If I remember correctly there is a time difference of an hour between Male time and the resort time)
2. Try and experience all the water sports they offer. It’s a lot of fun.
3. Water villas are worth it
4. Travel from Male to the resort is in a shared sea plane so be prepared to wait for other flights to arrive before you all are taken to the resort.

Room Tip: Take the sunrise room as the view is amazing with no obstructions. On the sunset side there is anoth...

Congratulations on your recent marriage and it was great to read how well you honeymoon went.

Komandoo is one hour ahead of Male time to give you one extra hour of sun during sun set time.

This was our second visit in two years. The Island is wonderful, as is the location, accommodation, staff, food and diving. Nothing is too much trouble. If you want to get away from it all then this is the island, no children just a complete rest.

It was great to read that your return visit was just as good as the first

We do keep adding little goodies to our guests and this year made some nice changes to the AIP package. This also also why we have a large amount of returning guests as we just keep adding additional goodies.

The food, the room, the view, the weather, the silence, the fish, the water, the snorkelling, the service, the drinks, the smiles, the all-inclusive packet, the cleaning - I wouldn't change a thing. I hope it is all the same on our next visit. We have to return to Komandoo!

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side: sunrise, more quiet- but no cooling breeze at this time of the year. West...

Well where do I start?? We booked Komandoo for our honeymoon as I've always wanted to go to the Maldives and my husband was more than happy! Komandoo seemed like the ideal island for us as it was small without all the hustle and bustle of larger islands and best of all over 18's only (we have two children ourselves but if we weren't bringing them we didn't want to be sharing our honeymoon with other people's children!)
Komandoo met and completely exceeded all our expectations. The service there is amazing, every member of staff is polite, friendly all of the time. Our waiter Amarjith was unbeatable, giving us such a personal service and making our restaurant visits run smoothly, we couldn't have asked for anyone better :)
The food, oh the food! I was never once hungry during our stay. 3 courses every meal time, and the taste was just amazing. 2-3 different dishes cooked fresh for you to your taste as you wait by funny and friendly chefs at the cooking station as well as at least 3-4 other main dishes to choose from. The desserts were yummy and there's always plenty of fresh fruit if you just can't squeeze one in!
On to the cocktails, we managed one or two before lunch and again before dinner and then even a couple more in the evening! Always perfect, always nicely made and presented. My best cocktails were made by Vinod and Sanwar who always served us with a smile and personal welcome.
Our Jacuzzi Beach Villa was perfect. Room service is great and you have everything you need - mini bar, safe, seating and comfy bed, mosquito nets, plenty of storage and wardrobe space and of course the outdoor bathroom complete with toiletries, day bed and Jacuzzi bath. We were perfectly placed next door but one to the beach front Thundi Bar.
Then there are the ladies who keep the paths and area around the villas free from leaves etc, and the man who rakes the beach after high tide keeping it free form seaweed. The beach is beautiful, and from bed to beach it's barely 10 paces!
The sea is full of stunning fish as well as the odd baby shark and although we didn't see them, also turtles. We were lucky enough to see dolphins passing by on our last evening.
The pool is just perfect with plenty of sunbeds and parasols and of course the bar is a few steps away.
Every part of the island is kept in fantastic condition and we both appreciated the hard work and maintenance that goes into keeping it that way. Thank you to each and every one of you. We shall be back!!

Sunny Greetings from Komandoo and thank you so much for your excellent review called
Unforgettable Honeymoon :)”

Many congrats on your recent marriage and thank you for choosing to stay at Komandoo for your honeymoon.

It was great to read how well your holiday went and that "Komandoo met and completely exceeded all our expectations"

As you say we are one of the only Adult Islands which makes for a relaxing child free holiday.

We take great pride to offer down to earth good service and great food coming from the kitchen. We have added many new cocktails to the AIP list and it sounds like you enjoyed them very much. Yes the bar staff are very good.

It was good to read your home away from home was kept clean and that you enjoyed the location. I agree the ladies in green do amazing job day in day out.

As you mention the sea life is amazing with lots of fish and other creatures and coral to explore.

We wait for your return till then safe travels

It has taken me almost a year to get round to writing this review, but hopefully better late than never! Komandoo was our first trip to the Maldives, chosen as the destination to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I had read many reviews on all the resorts before choosing Komandoo and feel that I made the right decision in our choice. Komandoo is simply superb!
Apart from the obviously idyllic environment it is the ethos and attitude created by the staff under Patrick's supervision that make this a truly exceptional experience. All the staff we encountered, without exception, were pleasant, helpful and seemed determined to make sure you had a wonderful holiday. On the occasion of our anniversary we had hoped to have a romantic dinner on the beach. Unfortunately the weather was against us that night - so instead we were given exclusive use of the fine dining Aqua restaurant for the evening with our own chef and waiter! A truly unique experience with a menu that matches any of the fine dining experiences we have had elsewhere in the world - so much so we returned to Aqua for a second time before we left despite being AI!
Our accommodation was a JBV on the sunrise side (Dolphin 5) about 6 steps from our front door to the ocean. We enjoyed all the flora and fauna of the island - enjoying a daily stroll around the island after breakfast before a busy day of snorkelling, sunbathing and eating. The food at Falhu restaurant was delicious - a huge choice and varied menu with many locally inspired dishes to try. I also experienced the spa on two blissful occasions - highly recommended!
Both our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday were celebrated with complimentary fruit platters and wine, and my husband received a birthday cake and was had 'happy birthday' sung to him by the restaurant staff at dinner.
It was a truly memorable, exceptional holiday - we met some lovely people and it was truly a holiday to remember. Fantastic!

Greetings from Komandoo and thank you for your “Sublime holiday” review

I agree with you it is better later than never and plus I understand the pace on Komandoo is a little different than the big old world most of you live in ;) .

It was great to read how my team looked after you and that you special 25th anniversary dinner went so well in Aqua. I now have many friends you have just about managed to stay together for 25 days so a big congratulations its lovely to see.

I am glad you enjoyed you room so much as you say the rooms are 5 steps for the sea and the wild life at Komandoo is like an underwater safari.

It was nice to read you enjoyed the little extra goodies and we very much hope to see you soon on Komandoo. Till then safe travels.
