Small but perfectly formed, only 200 metres wide and 500 metres in length, Komandoo is only a 40 minute scenic seaplane transfer from the airport but you arrive in a different world.
A lagoon of crystal clear water surrounded by tropical vegetation and a kilometre of white sand beach, this is a true romantic hideaway, especially as it is over-18’s only. But the best feature is the house reef, which is accessible by simply stepping off the beach, donning your snorkel and discovering an amazing underwater paradise turtles, dolphins, mantas, sharks and rays have been spotted here frequently. In total there are over 50 dive sites within a 10 to 40 minute radius. Over-water or land accommodation, a full range of land and water sports, complimentary Wi-Fi in all guest rooms and most public areas, the Duniye Spa and two restaurants plus two bars complete this island hideaway.

The Maldives is a destination of dazzling tropical beauty that offers the perfect recipe for relaxation and rejuvenation! A country of more than a thousand islands spread over 90,000 square kilometres of the Indian Ocean. Endowed with a dreamlike beauty, the Maldives welcomes you to enjoy its natural splendour and charm. For most holidaymakers, great sunny days with deep blue skies, clear lagoons with pleasing shades of blue, moonlit nights, the soothing sound of little waves lapping soft white sands, the ruffle of palms and powdery white beaches are the basic ingredient for a tropical island holiday – few places offer these in greater abundance than the Maldives.
Maldives offers a variety of resorts catering to the taste and budget of most travellers. All resorts are located on their own private island, making their beaches idyllically crowd-free. From Robinson Crusoe style escapes to those offering a more conventional style, your Maldives resort is your haven from which to spend your days relaxing with a cocktail or two, diving in the spectacular ocean, or taking advantage of the spa facilities, water sports, or activities the resort has to offer. Maldives is barefoot luxury at its best.
The warm seas of the Maldives have high visibility throughout the year; with water clear enough to see the passing fish as far as fifty metres away at times. Over a thousand species of fish and other underwater creatures inhabit the Maldivian waters. Enjoy your holiday, snorkelling, diving, deep-sea fishing, or cruising at sunset.
CLIMATE IN THE MALDIVES
The Maldives has a hot tropical climate and the temperature remains remarkably consistent at around 30°C year-round – and that’s on the beach and in the water! The sea in the Maldives is warm all year round and the water temperature is an average of 29°C (yowzers!)
TIME DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALDIVES AND SOUTH AFRICA
The Maldives is 3 hours ahead of South Africa.
International flights arrive at Male's Hulhule airport, which is on an island of its own. Transfers from the airport to your resort island are either by boat, seaplane, or domestic flight, depending on the distance. If your Maldives resort requires a seaplane transfer, be aware that seaplanes only operate in daylight hours. The seaplane journey in itself is an experience, as you get stunning views of the atolls - make sure you get a window seat and that you get your camera out before boarding. The seaplane will usually land next to a floating platform, from which you will be picked up by boat to be taken the remaining few metres in shore to your resort.
Electricity supply is 220V to 240V, 50Hz AC. The standard socket is the UK-style three-pin, although there are some variations, so an international adaptor will be useful.
The language of the Maldivians is Dhivehi and is very similar to several other languages from Sri Lanka, South East Asia and North India. English is also widely spoken in the Maldives.
DIVING IN THE MALDIVES
If you are a certified diver, travel with proof of your certification and discover this miracle of nature called Maldives - a true diver’s dream. If you are not certified - well there’s no time like the present! Take the plunge while on holiday in the Maldives - with its shallow lagoons, the Maldives offers ideal conditions for beginners. Maldives is one of the most coral rich regions in the world, here you are spoilt for choice when it comes to diving. With over a thousand different species of coral and fish, every dive is a fascinating experience. While boat diving is more popular, shore diving to discover natures little wonders in the house reef off the island is also amazing. Diving options in the Maldives include drift diving, wreck diving and night diving.
