COMO Maalifushi, Maldives
COMO Maalifushi in the Maldives is the only resort in unspoilt Thaa Atoll — a 60-minute seaplane journey from the international airport in Malé — surrounded by Indian Ocean vistas.
This makes it the ultimate away-from-it-all destination with white strands of beach, inland tropical greenery and a safe, cobalt lagoon flanked by a healthy house reef. The resort provides numerous opportunities to explore the region with instruction in sailing, diving and seasonal surfing, using a fleet of boats for fishing and a nearby white-sand island where guests can enjoy a private island picnic experience. But while activities are numerous, this is a luxurious resort designed with relaxation front of mind. Each room’s décor is designed to bring the colours of sea, sand and sky into the heart of the residence, be it an overwater villa or a beach house set among garden palms. COMO Maalifushi has three restaurants: ‘Thila’, for easygoing food, such as wood-fired pizzas and salads; ‘Madi’, which serves a mix of local, regional and Mediterranean cuisine; and ‘Tai’, which ranks among the finest Japanese restaurants in the Maldives, featuring a sushi bar serving freshly caught seafood, and an enviable, overwater location. Guests can fully embrace the range of holistic Asian therapies available at the award-winning COMO Shambhala Retreat at COMO Maalifushi, which also offers yoga, a fully-equipped gym and a range of holistic wellness therapies. The guest experience at COMO Maalifushi is defined from beginning to end by COMO’s exacting, passionate service.
