Komandoo is an adults-only resort occupying an island measuring just 100 metres by 500 metres, located in the Lhaviyani Atoll, 130 kilometres north of Male. The charming, elegant tropical island is home to a 40 year old coconut plantation with white sandy beaches, surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and a magnificent house reef providing excellent snorkelling and diving - a great place to see mantas, turtles or rays.
The island's luxury accommodation is in beach and water villas. The wooden Beach Villas are attractive and spacious with a large, furnished wooden terrace overlooking the beach while the Jacuzzi Beach Villas have secluded tropical gardens and a wooden deck with a Jacuzzi bath. The Jacuzzi Water Villas are set on wooden stilts in the beautiful south lagoon with a large furnished terrace and sundeck with steps down to the water, while the Jacuzzi bath is inside with views out over the water.
Guests can stay at Komandoo on a full board, all-inclusive or all-inclusive 'gold' basis with the latter including a greater range of beverages, dining options and other benefits. All meals are served buffet-style in the beachfront Falhu Restaurant, while Aqua Restaurant is a fine dining venue which is built on stilts above the lagoon with glass floors revealing the marine life below. Guests staying on an all-inclusive 'gold' basis can dine here once per week. There are also two bars at the resort - poolside Kandu and beachfront Thundi. Guests can also dine at Komandoo's sister restaurant, Hurawalhi, which is home to the world's largest all-glass undersea restaurant.
