COMO Maalifushi

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Set in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean in the speckled string of islands known as the Thaa Atoll, over 130 miles southwest of the Maldivian capital of Male, the Maalifushi by COMO is truly a secluded desert island.

History: Opened in 2013, this hotel has already won awards from Five Star Alliance and Best New Hotels, thanks in part to the way it beautifully encapsulates the rich culture brought by its first African settlers in the eighteenth century.

Service: The welcoming and multilingual staff are deeply committed to creating an unforgettable experience for their guests; for the height of attentive service, a dedicated butler is available in select suites. 


In addition to the resort’s gorgeous pool, there is the COMO Shambhala Retreat at Maalifushi, which boasts the same attention to quality as its counterparts around the world. Offering a range of treatments and therapies, a full spa, not mention yoga pavillion and gym, guests’ well-being is the very top priority. 


The COMO Shambhala Retreat features a fully-equipped spa, complete with steam, sauna and jacuzzis, separate for men and women, in which guests can relax and unwind.


Whether in the resort’s three restaurants - Madi, Thila and Tai, delivered directly to your room, enjoyed in the spa or packed for a desert island picnic, the food at Maalifushi is defined by healthful, fresh and organic ingredients, lovingly and artfully prepared. 


The resort’s all-day seafood restaurant, Madi’s ingredients come fresh from the abundantly populated waters that surround it. The menu is packed with light, healthy dishes that make flavorful nods to Thai and Indonesian cuisine as well as COMO Shambhala cuisine, a unique and healthy dining option rich in living enzymes and nutritional vitamins


One of the best Japanese restaurants in the Maldives, Tai delivers sushi fresh from the ocean, presented to guests seated around the bars by entertaining chefs. Meanwhile, on the decking outside, infused and marinated meats are sizzled to perfection at the table on traditional yakiniku grills.


Perfect for the whole family, Thila is a laid-back, open air spot, perfect for al fresco eats by the pool, boasting ocean views and breezes. Guests congregate here to snack on pizzas and salads between dips in the water or games of billiards, sitting back, relaxing and listening to music.
