3 Must-Do Iconic Maldives Moments

A holiday in the Maldives is as special as it gets when it comes to dream travel destinations so once you arrive you’ll want to make the most of it and see the best of what this idyllic nation has to offer. Our small boutique style island resort of Komandoo Maldives, with secluded villas tucked away along the beach or perched atop the ocean, is a haven that you’ll probably never want to leave, and the sumptuous all-inclusive buffets will please the the most discerning of foodies BUT there’s more than all of this! The following three iconic Maldives moments will showcase the very best of what the Maldives has to offer and Komandoo has many more incredible experiences for you to enjoy too.

Romantic Beach Dining – there’s nothing quite like sitting at a table directly on the beach under a blanket of stars and with the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore serenading you. Komandoo’s private dining events include the Private Beach BBQ where your very own chef will prepare a la carte dishes to start with and then cook to perfection a wide selection of BBQ, including both seafood and meat items – barbecues at home will never be the same again! Athiri Dining offers a delicious and carefully prepared 5-course menu on the beach with bubbly – it’s a candlelit dinner experience you’ll never forget.

Marine Adventures – with 99% of the nation of the Maldives consisting of ocean and just a tiny amount of land, it’s not surprising that the ocean plays a big part in everything Maldives! Beneath the surface of the Indian Ocean lies an enchanting world full of the world’s most incredible marine life – fish of all colours imaginable, inquisitive sea turtles, eagle rays that fly past in formation, impossibly huge napoleon wrasse, graceful manta rays and many different species of sharks. Embark upon snorkelling and scuba diving adventures to glimpse the treasures of the Maldives’ coral reefs and you’ll have stories to tell all who will listen once you get home.

Dolphin Spotting – the waters around Komandoo are home to a vast number of dolphins and if you’re lucky you can spot them during any boat trip, and sometimes even from shore. For the best chance of seeing dolphins join the Sunset Cruise onboard a traditional Maldivian style ‘Dhoni’ boat and whilst watching the glorious sunset colours keep an eye out for dolphins – they are seen frequently during this excursion. By day, join Komandoo’s Water Sport Centre for an exciting, 1-hour Dolphin Cruise on a speed boat in search of pods of playful spinner dolphins. Although dolphin sightings are very common, we are unable to guarantee sightings on any of our trips.

We look forward to sharing these iconic Maldives’ moments with you soon!
