Villas feature tasteful decor, four-poster beds, private verandas and views of the Indian Ocean. In addition to the air-conditioning, ceiling fans, free WiFi and flat screen TVs included in all rooms, guests also have the opportunity to select villas complete with a jacuzzi or private stairs leading down to the lagoon.

The waters surrounding Lhaviyani Atoll offer biodiverse coral reefs and ample opportunities for drift diving. Look out for butterfly fish, angelfish, barracuda, lionfish, oriental sweetlips, white tip reef sharks and lagoon trigger fish. Sea turtles can grow up to 1.5m and it's not uncommon to see mantas.

Explore diving around the Komandoo Maldives Island Resort

What to see

Amongst the caves and overhangs you’ll see different species of moray eel, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, and orange, nocturnal soldier fish with big, black eyes. They can be seen swimming upside down in the dark overhangs.

The soft corals are colorful, and some of the hard corals look like a French horn's bell. Expect reef sharks, turtles and rays, but the wet season is more favorable for manta sightings.

As with most of the Maldives – the variety of marine life in Lhaviyani will keep you busy. Add a shipwreck to your experience, and you might need a spare pencil to complete your dive logs.
