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. 

DETAILED DECRIPTION

COMO Maalifushi is the only luxury resort in the pearly white and otherwise undeveloped Thaa Atoll in the southern part of the Maldives. Accessible by a 35-minute domestic flight to Thimarafushi Airport followed by a 25-minute speedboat ride, this is a truly remote and gorgeous getaway. Designed by Japanese architect Koichiro Ikebuchi, the 65 villas and rooms are tastefully decorated with a combination of cultural authenticity and chic modern style. Built with New Zealand pine, floored with teak and artfully thatched, the accommodation options cater to all guests from honeymooning couples in search of peace and romance to families seeking adventure and fun. In the three restaurants, guests can take their pick of dining options to suit their mood. Crystal clear lagoon waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, treatments at COMO Shambhala Retreat are sure to relax and rejuvenate,while a range of watersports and a fully-equipped gym are available for more active guests.
