Message from the Resident Manager – April 2022


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 and long-awaited 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! Our guests staying with us at the end of March joined us and millions across the world in celebrating Earth Hour, highlighting the need to protect the planet by switching off the power for one hour and creating a wave of darkness across the globe. Seeing the pristine natural beauty of the Maldives really does bring home the need to protect the planet in every way we can.

The start of April saw the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, Ramadan, commence and many of our Champions are fasting from sunrise until sunset when they break the fast each day with the Iftar meal; Ramadan 2022 is expected to come to an end on the evening of May 2nd. Guests staying with us during Ramadan will get the same impeccable service throughout, it’s only on local islands where café’s and restaurants close during daylight hours, at the resorts it’s ‘business as usual’.

Komandoo’s Easter celebrations were enjoyed by all, with champagne being won in the beach Easter Egg Hunt, and diving and snorkelling prizes won in the ocean egg hunt. The Easter chocolate making class was a lot of fun and the guests who booked the Easter Beach BBQ told us it was delicious. If you want an Easter holiday away from the crowds and with no children allowed, come to Komandoo – the place where adults get all the fun!

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! Bookings are coming in quite quickly now that the requirement for PCR testing has been dropped so if you want to experience Komandoo this year, don’t leave it too late. We also have a new special offer for winter 2022/2023 season, offering a generous 25% discount but it must be booked by the end of May!

We look forward to welcoming you to Komandoo very soon.

With very best wishes,
