Komandoo, the Perfect Place for a Digital Detox

With idyllic villas, white sands, turquoise waters and exquisite dining under the stars, Komandoo Maldives Resort is a perfect place to let go of modern life distractions and to focus on the meaningful things in life.

Leave work-related stress and constant notifications on your phone behind for a week or two, and let the lapping of the waves and dolphin spotting be your only distractions. Treat yourself to a digital detox: search for clown fish and turtles rather than for Wi-Fi coverage and feel zero guilt to take time to yourself, to switch off, reflect, pause and observe the natural wonders and the romance on the island. Notice the warm and beneath your feet, how beautiful the sun’s rays are as they sparkle through the water and cast mesmerising patterns on the sand beneath, take a deep breath and simply be – it does wonders for the soul.

Swap your smartphone for snorkel gear and spend your days exploring the reefs of Lhaviyani Atoll, or sipping cocktails next to the resort’s infinity pool or on your villa sundeck. To indulge in pure relaxation, a visit to Duniye Spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated and recharged, and put your body and mind into a state of complete calm. Sign up for that yoga lesson you’ve been meaning to do for years or choose from the rest of the array of experiences that promote your wellness!

The excellent culinary offerings available in both Falhu and Aqua restaurants, as well as the exquisite private dining events, allow you to spend time savouring the flavours, smelling and aromas, and taking in the views of the ocean while doing so. Dine under the stars with your loved one to really unplug and rekindle the sparks in your relationship that might have been pushed aside due to the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.

The slow pace of the days, combined with the favourable climate, beautiful natural surroundings and romance, make Komandoo a stress-free, a shoe-free and a traffic-free, adults-only holiday retreat that allows you ditch the digital leash and connect with yourself again.

If you can’t quite bear to ditch the mobile entirely, make a pledge with yourself to simply leave it in your villa, set yourself some screen time restrictions, turn off notifications and maybe just take it out for photo opportunities once in a while – better still, make use of our professional photographer for stunning ‘Instagram-worthy’, ‘likeable’ and ‘loveable’ shots that will be the envy of all when you post them upon your return!

It’s worth noting that we do have a Mobile App which is a great planning tool where you can book lots of incredible experiences before you leave home – these can be changed once you’re here and if you prefer to go phone free, our team at reception can help you with that!

Celebrate Komandoo’s Turtles

The Maldives is renowned for its amazing marine life, and Komandoo is no exception, boasting a diverse and abundant population of fish and aquatic animals that make their home around the island. What we are especially proud of is that the island has become a known hotspot for sea turtles. Thanks to the ongoing partnership with the Olive Ridley Project, we have a great insight into our resident turtle community and so far 30 individual hawksbill turtles and 3 green turtles have been identified on Komandoo’s reef.

All turtles have unique scale patterns on their heads, so photos can be compared to images in the national databases to help track movements and population changes across the Maldives and your holiday snaps can help! If you have a photograph, taken in the Maldives, of a sea turtle that is new to our database, or one that is yet to be named, you can choose to adopt this turtle if you wish, and name it too. We need one clear image of each side of the turtle’s face. And of course, we also need to know the time and the location of the sighting.

Submit your photos by email

This research will help us develop and evaluate conservation strategies aimed at saving sea turtles threatened by extinction. Six out of the seven species worldwide are listed as ‘Endangered’ and they need our help.

When encountering sea turtles during your holiday, either by swimming, during the Turtle Tour, snorkelling or scuba diving, it is extremely important to be respectful and not to threaten their natural behaviour in any way, you will have a much more rewarding experience if you keep your distance and allow the turtle to simply do what turtles do – feed, rest and breathe!

Please familiarise yourself with the Olive Ridley Project’s Code of Conduct for how to swim with sea turtles.

We know how excited you are: having regularly visited our webcam for quite some time now, you are raring to go and experience paradise pure and simple in real life.

The treatment begins with the heat of Thai herbal poultices to warm and relax tensed muscles, followed by a medium to strong pressure massage, focusing on the area most commonly affected by travelling – the back. As the therapist gets deeper into the muscles, releasing the tension, allow yourself to drift away to the thoughts from your inspirational Balinese happy stone and the soothing sounds of the music that surrounds you. Once you are woken by the tropical rain from the African rain sticks, you will feel revitalized and ready to move your relaxation mode into fifth gear.
