Komandoo Island Resort, Maldives
Small but perfectly formed – 500 metres long by 100 metres wide – Komandoo is only a 35-minute seaplane transfer from the airport but you arrive in a different world. A lagoon of crystal clear water and surrounded by tropical vegetation, this is a truly romantic hideaway, especially as it is over-18’s only.
