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!
