Message from the General Manager – April 2023

Dear Guests,

Sunny greetings from Komandoo Maldives!

As is usual at Komandoo, we have had another fantastic month, with many of you enjoying your much-deserved holidays here with us. There have been no surprises with the weather; it’s been warm and sunny, with water temperatures to match. Those who embarked upon diving and snorkelling adventures were treated to the magnificent underwater realm lying just off the beach and at reefs nearby – you never quite get used to the abundance of marine life right on our doorstep!

The holiest month in the Islamic calendar, Ramadan, commenced on March 22, and many of our Champions are fasting from sunrise until sunset when they break the fast each day with the Iftar meal. Guests staying with us during Ramadan will get the same impeccable service throughout; it’s only on local islands where cafés and restaurants close during daylight hours; at the resorts, the holiday vibe goes on, and it smiles as usual!

Guests staying at Komandoo on March 25 joined us in celebrating Earth Hour as we hosted ‘The Lighting of Candles for Earth Hour 60+’ and switched off the lights for one hour. Earth Hour is marked by millions of people worldwide at 20.30 local time, creating a spectacular wave of darkness with the common goal of raising awareness of the plight of planet Earth. Seeing the pristine natural beauty of the Maldives really does bring home the need to do everything we can to protect the future of our planet. At Komadoo, we constantly strive to minimise our impact on nature, and all our Champions play their part in the resort’s environmental endeavours delivering our sustainability plan.

The final preparations for Komandoo’s Easter celebrations are taking place, and there are lots for our guests to look forward to, including the much-loved Easter Egg Hunt – both on land and in the lagoon with great prizes to be won. If you join us and participate, we wish you the best of luck!

Our small, friendly, boutique resort is a ‘go-to’ destination for couples, solo travellers and friends who seek exemplary service in paradise. Within a couple of days of arriving, you’ll find your favourite tipple already being poured as you enter the bar, and by the time you leave, you’ll count our Champions as friends! If you’d like to join us and can’t wait to write ‘Komandoo’ across a couple of weeks of your calendar, visit our special offers page, where you will find an array of deals, all currently offering a generous 25% discount for stays that include this month, the upcoming summer season, following winter and even summer 2024 – don’t leave it too late though, bookings are coming in quickly!

Sun, Sea & Sand Regards,

Ali Navaz
General Manager
