2019 was a fantastic year on Komandoo, a year where we got to welcome many new faces to our island paradise, as well as seeing many residents for the second third, fourth or even 24th time. Here are 5 of our highlights from the past 12 months on Komandoo.
Perhaps our proudest achievement of 2019 has been the steps we’ve taken to reduce our environmental footprint. Living in such a fragile environment we get to see first-hand the impacts of human activity. Reducing single-use plastics, recycling greywater in our gardens, using solar power as much as possible and educating our team, partners and guests on ways they can also make a difference, we know we are moving in the right direction.
Komandoo is family, we’re delighted to have such an amazing team based here on our island, working hard to make Komandoo Resort as close to paradise as possible. However, it is our residents that really help make Komandoo special. Whether it is your first visit to the island or your 24th we love to hear your stories and help you to create memories that last a lifetime.
The amazing marine life of the Maldives is no secret, and the last 12 months have provided plenty of great experiences for our residents. Regular sightings of turtles, dolphins and manta rays have wowed guests throughout the year. The team at Prodivers have enjoyed fantastic encounters with schools of sharks and eagle rays, as well as finding strange little critters on our house reef. But, the real treat of the year has been the Whale sharks, although not usually seen close to Komandoo in 2019 we were lucky to see the worlds largest fish on numerous occasions close to the island – hopefully, they will stay around for 2020 too.
Food, glorious food – the restaurants on Komandoo always impress, and in February 2019 Komandoo welcomed new Executive Chef Riccardo to the team. Under Riccardo’s guidance, our culinary team have lifted the cuisine to new heights, with fresh menus in both Falhu and Aqua restaurants.
2019 has also seen a change in the way we categorise rooms. Offering residents more choice over their room location, and enhancing Komandoo’s All-Inclusive packages, gives Komandoo’s guests more control over their stay and makes it is easier for you to plan your dream Maldives holiday.
Whilst 2019 was a fantastic year, a year where we feel Komandoo has grown and developed into an even better resort, we also know that 2020 will be just as exciting, and hope that we get to welcome many of you back again, as well as meet new guests who will have the opportunity to fall in love with Komandoo for the very first time.
