With pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear warm azure waters, and year round sunshine, Komandoo Maldives is a special place to escape, you’ve been waiting for. A holiday at the intimate adults-only boutique resort of Komandoo Maldives allows you to relax, reset and simply ‘be’.

Be as busy (or chilled) as you please, at Komandoo you can follow your own pace but although it’s likely you’ll be happy to simply soak up the barefoot romantic ambience on the island. Although travel restrictions have not been fully lifted for all globetrotters yet, we’re sure it’s not going to be too much longer and planning ahead for the holiday is the next best thing to being on the holiday! 

If you’re needing a boost for the 2021-22, here are ten reasons to choose a romantic escape at Komandoo Maldives.

1 A Safe Haven for Guests in Covid Times

Pampering Yourself at luxury Spa

If you need a vacation more than pretty much anything else in the world right now, but are concerned about travelling amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, you can count yourself among countless others, but what many don’t know is that it’s still possible to have a covid-safe holiday where you can leave your worries and endless news updates at home. Komandoo Maldives is a safe haven for adults who wish to enjoy all that the Maldives has to offer from the comfort of a small friendly boutique resort where nothing is too much trouble and, above all your safety is paramount.

The unique Maldives set-up of a ‘one island, one resort’ destination lends itself perfectly to staying ‘Covid-safe’. Once you arrive at Komandoo you will be in the resort bubble and even before you arrive, your journey will have been planned by the airline, airport team and seaplane team in accordance with strict covid protocols – all you have to do is relax and enjoy the moment.

2 Plannig Ahead: Travel Inspiration for Rest of the 2021 and 2022

Komandoo Maldives provides the perfect antidote to months of not being able to travel – the escape you’ve been waiting for. With half of 2021 still remaining and the whole of 2022 beyond, there’s ample time to fit in an indulgent trip to Komandoo and if you need some travel inspiration, here are just some of the things awaiting your arrival:

  • Child-free summer getaway – Komandoo’s adult’s only policy means you can travel in the school holidays knowing you’re heading to peace not chaos!
  • Autumn encounters with manta rays – manta season kicks off in October with dive and snorkel excursions enjoying regular sightings – this is a bucket list item waiting to be ticked.
  • Escaping the northern hemisphere’s winter will feel like real treat knowing that grey cold days prevail at home. Swap the winter blues for Komandoo’s blues – the sky, the ocean and bright blue reef fish!
  • A tropical Christmas will make the festive season extra special and a lot less work than one spent at home – put a trip to Komandoo on your Christmas wish list and let us spoil you.
  • New Year in the Maldives – what better way to mark new beginnings and say goodbye to what has been another difficult year than by being at our island retreat?
  • Relaxation, ocean adventure and cocktails at any time of year – Komandoo’s intimate atmosphere lends itself perfectly to days of lounging under palm trees, snorkelling the house reef and enjoying cocktails as the sun dips below the horizon.

3 Escape the Kids Holiday

Kids are great, but admit it: sometimes you just need a break, a carefree week away to let your hair down and reconnect with your partner. No need to feel guilty if you’re convinced that nothing but a holiday in the Maldives would cut it! A charming little all-inclusive island where there are no mini-people throwing tantrums around and all you have to worry about is how many hours you’ll devote to floating in the sea, which cocktails you’ll have and… no, that’s about it.

Komandoo, the Maldives’ only true adults-only resort (18 years+) is the perfect setting for your escape. Here, every day is easy like your pre-kids Sunday mornings used to be. The island oozes romance and relaxation, with lounging by the pool, spa treatments, snorkelling on the fabulous, easily accessible house reef, diving with turtles, dolphin-watching and exquisite dining being the main activities. There’s even an undersea restaurant nearby if you want to take your rendezvous game up a notch!

On the activities front, in addition to the sunset cruise, you can join group snorkelling and windsurfing lessons, and keep fit in paradise by using the gym, tennis court or go windsurfing and kayaking in the lagoon.

4 Excellent-Value All-Inclusive Resort is All You Need

With worries and schedules of everyday life left behind, the barefoot freedom of tropical island with a choice of all-inclusive plans makes your stay carefree. We believe you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more intimate, positive vibe-y Maldivian island with a better value-for-money all-inclusive. Komandoo’s all-inclusive doesn’t skimp on any of the essentials for a perfect holiday in the Maldives!

When opting for Komandoo’s all-inclusive, you get to enjoy buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner at Falhu restaurant. From unlimited house-brand bottled water and soft drinks to draught beer, coffee and all the house wines and house brand spirits, there is no such thing as not having enough to drink at Komandoo. The minibar contents are also included – and refilled every day!

Coral reefs are one of the Maldives’ top attractions, only rivalled by the astounding scenes brought about by the complementing islands, sandbanks and lagoons that make the scene picture perfect. Snorkelling or diving are all the more enjoyable and convenient when there is the option of embarking on underwater adventures steps away from your villa.

At Komandoo, we’re blessed with a fabulous, shallow and easily accessible house reef that allows you to don your gear, turn on your ‘exploration’ mode and be wowed by the variety of creatures that reside there. 99 percent of the time you can spot a hawksbill turtle and a moray eel, alongside just about every reef fish from your fish ID book! Those who want to make the most of your evening can even explore the house reef on a night dive night to find out how the ambience changes and how Komandoo’s house reef is an interesting place at any time of the day.
