Amazing stay in a difficult time

Canterbury, United Kingdom

This was our sixth visit to the Maldives and first to Komandoo arriving in mid-March three days after the travel ban was implemented. On arrival at Male you have use of the Komandoo lounge with air conditioning, comfy seats and complimentary drinks. After a 40 min sea plane journey you arrive at the Island and are checked in with a homemade ice cream and a drink. We stayed in a beach bungalow with allocated sun loungers only a few steps from the lagoon. The accommodation was great with a very well stocked mini-bar including wine, crisps and chocolate along with the usual soft drinks all included in the AI package. There is also a TV with a load of satellite channels should you ever wish to stay in and watch it. The room was always cleaned to a high standard and little treats such as chocolates or biscuits left in the evening turn down which was a nice little touch. The food in the buffet restaurant was outstanding. There seemed to be slightly less dishes prepared than other Islands but what there was was well thought out and cooked superbly. It seemed to be quality over quantity. Chef Ricardo's home made pasta was some of the best I have had anywhere and all the food was delicious. One of the main reasons we come back to the Maldives is the snorkelling. The house reef here was great and there was an abundance of the "bigs" sharks, turtles, eagle rays etc. There were huge numbers of fish and we were even lucky enough to have Manta's on the house reef on one of the days. What really sets Komandoo apart was the guys who worked on the resort known as champions. The manager Mo Solah really leads from the front and he was always around for a chat checking to make sure you were ok and if there was anything you needed and if you did he would move heaven and earth to try and get it for you!. The champions professionalism, kindness and cheerfulness really shines through and made what was a really stressful and worrying time as we weren't sure we were getting home a lot easier. There is nowhere I would have rather been than at Komandoo during that time as I know that Mo and the champions would have done their utmost to make sure we would be OK and there is no greater praise I can give them!

A ray of sunshine in a time of uncertainty

Canterbury, United Kingdom

We have just returned from our 12 night stay in Komandoo, we can only give this island a wonderful review. We knew going that this was not going to be a usual holiday, as the day we were leaving the UK ramped up its response to Covid-19 and daily checking the Maldivian government website checking we would be allowed entry made for an uncertain time anyway. So anyway, landed into Male and shown into the lounge, free tee, coffee and soft drinks while you wait for your sea plane departure, lovely and air conditioned which is a lovely welcome when you’ve melted in the arrivals hall! Check in on the island is swift and met with a lovely drinks and ice cream, already on a winner here, and shown to your room and round the island quickly. We stayed in a beach bungalow, bathroom was probably one of the smaller ones we’ve had in the terms of open air bathrooms in Maldives, but think this is the only ‘negative’ I can find. The rooms are clean, comfy and if your spending time in your room you are not doing the Maldives right anyway! The minibar is included in all inclusive so plenty of refreshments and really nothing bad to say here. We were coral 5 on the sunset side, lovely little room with a good bit of beach outside. All the champions on the island are incredible, go out of their way to help, make your stay comfortable and do what they can to ensure you enjoy your holiday. Munaaz, Vinod, in general all the staff and the management team are incredible here and really showed their excellence with the ever changing coved situation. We started out in the buffet restaurant, probably the smallest selection of food going from previous islands, but everything was cooked perfectly and always found something to eat, and when it came to the last few days when there was only 12 of us left on the island we had all 3 meals in the Aqua restaurant, where they went above and beyond with food, it was all lovely. Reef, both side of island good snorkelling, sunset side saw consistently more than sunrise side. Rays, sharks and turtles most days and even one day had a manta on the house reef! I can’t really say much that others haven’t said before me, but Komandoo seem to treat their champions really well, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. I truly hope in this awful worldwide situation you all remain safe and well as do all your families, and I’m fairly confident in writing, Komandoo, we will return, mainly so we can see what the island is like with more than 40 people on it! Thank you Komandoo for everything to ensure our safety over our stay. Your dedication was something spectacular and truly appreciated. X
