COMO Maalifushi is the only resort to open in the Maldives' Thaa Atoll, nestled in the archipelago's southern reaches just a 60-minute seaplane journey from the capital, Malé. It is the ultimate away-from-it-all destination for families, couples, surfers and divers, with some excellent breaks nearby, seasonal whale shark and manta ray sightings as well as Lavadhoo, Maalifushi’s uninhabited private island perfect for a castaway experience.
Our Maldives resort accommodation references indigenous architecture while remaining elegantly pared back to reflect the island's calming setting. Our over water suites and villas are built off wooden walkways that stand above the shallow lagoon. Each has its own private terrace for slipping into the sea, while our garden rooms benefit from being set in the island's tropical heart. The views are consistently spectacular: either lush gardens, where children can play, or directly out to the watery expanse.
At COMO Maalifushi, we rely on the same principles: local seafood that’s so fresh, we serve it as sushi and sashimi at our Japanese restaurant, Tai, as well as organic produce rendered in healthy, all-day dining at Madi, Thila, and on our COMO Shambhala menus. Flexibility is key, our chefs always aim to accommodate food intolerance, the preferences of children, and discerning palates full of expectation.
Our COMO Shambhala Retreat at COMO Maalifushi in the Maldives goes hand-in-hand with the private island resort experience. Eight double treatment pavilions are set over the water, with doors that open wide so you can relax on a massage bed or in our over-sized bathtubs listening to the sound of the waves and the ocean breeze.
We have steam, sauna and Jacuzzi areas, as well as an open-air yoga pavilion located on the sunrise side of the island, with views of the Indian Ocean. We have a state-of-the-art fitness center, as well as expert instruction in yoga, meditation, and core connection.
Treatments are based on Asian traditions, from Thai Massage, Taksu and Indonesian Massage, to Foot Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. Our retreat also offers classic beauty treatments, including Sundari Facials, Guinot facials, manicures and pedicures.
