A Place to Live The Life

Maalifushi by COMO was the first luxury resort in the Maldives to open in the pristine Thaa Atoll in the archipelago’s southwest. Among Maldives island hotels, Maalifushi stands apart with its understated style, encapsulating the spirit of the Indian Ocean and the barefoot chic of a COMO private island resort. A 50-minute seaplane flight will take you there from Male.

With overwater villas and beach suites, Maalifushi is the ultimate away-from-it-all destination for families, couples and watersports lovers. Most villas have a private pool and they all offer an iPod docking station, DVD player and coffee machine. The marble bathrooms with large bathtub and rain-shower give you that luxury feeling.

There is a wide range of experiences to enjoy, from water adventures to cultural experiences. There are some excellent surf breaks nearby as well as a string of uninhabited private islands, where there are seasonal hammerhead and manta ray sightings. Tailored experiences, like private charters to remote surf spots, are catered for on request. For the youngest, there is the ‘Play by Como’ space to inspire and encourage creativity.

Indulge during bbq’s, romantic and family picnics or beach dining. Local seafood that’s so fresh, is served as sushi and sashimi at the Japanese restaurant, Tai. Or you can choose from the organic produce rendered in healthy, all-day dining at Madi and enjoy a sunset cocktail at the Thila bar. COMO Shambhala Cuisine is a unique nutritional concept that incorporates organic ingredients rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals.

The luxuries are all here, including a COMO Shambhala spa with eight overwater, ocean-facing treatment rooms and steam rooms. Asian-based therapies, nutrition, exercise and yoga with a results-driven agenda are managed by experts in holistic health.
