A small, stylish resort with a hint of luxury – Komandoo really is a gem! A beautiful turquoise lagoon, accessible house reef and numerous dive sites nearby, makes it perfect for divers.

Komandoo is a small, oval shaped island tucked away in a remote corner of Lhaviyani Atoll – just 500m long and 200m wide with beautiful white sandbanks on both ends. The interior contains a coconut plantation and is rich and green, whilst the wooden villas are all located just a few steps from the beach. The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxed with low key entertainment. Dining is casual with gourmet flair.

Perfectly situated in a channel opening, Komandoo is a great island for keen divers and snorkelers. It has an excellent house reef and superb dive sites nearby that can be easily accessed by boat.

Note: Guests staying at Komandoo must be over 18 years.
