Komandoo is near Kuredu but I don’t think you can see it from there. It is much smaller though, there is no volleyball or five-a-side and everything is on foot. The seaplane drops you on a pontoon and you get collected by boat. Nothing nasty like wristbands and staff pretty soon get to know what meal/drinks deal you are on. The ‘villas’ have open air bathrooms but we weren’t really bothered by any bugs – we preferred a beach villa to over-water, and suggest the east/sunrise side is best.

There seems to be a lot less marine life within the lagoon but the house reef is still good. If you go with the (gentle) current of the day, you can easily drift along the reef without much effort.

The cheapest way we did it was through Kuoni as a package but last time we went with Qatar in business from Rome for a bit over £3k and booked the resort direct.
