Komandoo Resort is paradise. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean lapping on the white sandy beaches, combined with the excellent service offered by the team at the resort make it the perfect place to relax and unwind at any time. However, as many in Europe are experiencing the winter blues, and the cold dark months drag on, the Maldives enters its “high season”, when the great conditions become that little bit better, and make it the perfect destination for a winter escape.
The Maldives high season is characterised by stunning conditions. This means that guests who visit Komandoo during this period will often enjoy clear blue skies, dotted with just the occasional white fluffy cloud and flat seas which make it perfect for spotting dolphins jumping in the distance, or turtles poking their head above the surface before they dive back down to the reef. The calm conditions also bring stunning clarity to the water, allowing divers and snorkellers to look into the deep and marvel at the breath-taking underwater landscapes and get a full appreciation for the shear abundance of life that call the reefs around Komandoo home.
The great underwater visibility also makes it one of the best times of year to spot some of the rarer ocean inhabitants. The team at Komandoo have recently enjoyed spotting large pelagic species such as tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks on their dives, and snorkellers have had plenty of manta ray encounters. These majestic giants are known to inhabit the waters around Komandoo from November through to March, and provide a highlight to any stay.
Whilst these conditions can often be experienced at other times of the year it is during the months of February, March and April when conditions are at their most reliable, and when we feel it is the perfect time to visit Komandoo.
