Picture Perfect Paradise!

Komandoo is the perfect Holiday/Honeymoon get away! My husband and I visited Komandoo for our Honeymoon and stayed 6 Days/5 Nights. Which was way too short! Komandoo is a true adults only resort and is truly a piece of Heaven on Earth. The whole island is shoe and worry free! Travel/Arrival: The Champions (staff) welcomed us with music and welcome tea and took our bags to our room. We arrived with 5 other couples and check in still only took about 5 minutes. They went over details of our departure and everything that was included in our stay so we could have a worry free Honeymoon. Accommodations: We stayed in an Over the Water Villa. The Villa was large and spacious with a very large deck. We had our own steps that lead right into the ocean which was great. There was a mini bar that was restocked 2x per day. We loved our villa! Staff: This was our favorite part of the island! The Champions are some of the most amazing humans you will ever meet! All of them work hard to keep the beach clean and feeling like royalty. Amar was our waiter who by the end of the first day new we like mimosas with breakfast and wine with dinner. He always kept our glasses full and always knew what we had done that day and made suggestions on other excursions we should try. Our favorite Champion was Salim! From the second we met him he was fantastic. Always making sure we were enjoying our stay, giving us tips on where to find marine life we were looking for. He also answered all our questions about the Maldives, joked with us, and even danced with us on Maldivian night (which was our favorite part of the stay)! Salim is the main reason we will come back! We left with a new friend! Salim you are the MVP and we are so thankful for you! Food/Drinks: We did the all inclusive plus package. We didn't have to carry cash or a card anywhere. The selection at the buffet everyday was above average with many options. We never had a bad meal! We also did a candle light dinner from Aqua and it was fantastic! Marine Life/Excursions: Weather it was snorkeling, walking the beach, or the board walks there was marine life everywhere! We saw squids, rays, turtles, sharks, and beautiful fish! We did big game fishing and a sailing trip and were beyond please with both trips. There were more options we just didn't have time to do them all. Overall: The best experience we have ever had! You will not be disappointed for choosing the Komandoo. Thank you Champions for making our Honeymoon fantastic!

Honeymoon in paradise

Absolute paradise from the moment we stepped off the boat (after the seaplane). You don't need shoes at any point, the lagoons and ocean give off over 5 different shades of blue, and for most of our walks along the beach we seemed to be the only people there. We spent 1 week in the beach villa and 1 week in the water villa, each has its positives, the former lets you walk straight onto the beach and the latter gives you complete privacy on your decking. The service was outstanding, our waiter Amar learnt our names and favourite drinks immediately and made meal times feel special and welcoming. This level of service extended to any staff we asked for assistance. I think the food had something for everyone and i couldn't believe the variety day to day (i ate fish every day but it was almost always a slightly different take on the dish). While snorkelling in the lagoon we saw rays, fish and a tiny shark but if you are able to scuba dive on the house reef and beyond you'll see incredible amounts of wildlife. We're going back and it will be to Komandoo!
