The Island

COMO Maalifushi is the first and only resort to open on the unspoilt Thaa Atoll, in the archipelago’s southern reaches well regarded for its diving and surf breaks. Its culturally appropriate architecture includes low-lying garden and overwater villas, with views of white beach, tropical greenery and colbalt lagoon. Guests can also enjoy yoga and holistic Asian therapies at the COMO Shambhala Retreat, with the entire guest experience defined by COMO’s exacting, passionate service.

The Pleasures of Staying at COMO

Families are well looked after at COMO Maalifushi. Children can explore and make new friends in the secure environment of this relatively large island. The lagoon is safe to swim. COMO Maalifushi’s choice of landed suites and villas, many with private lawns, are ideal for families with younger children. Child minding and babysitting services are provided. Menus for infants and children include healthy, delicious choices. A number of family-friendly excursions are available, from beachside picnics on a picnic island to dolphin spotting on a sunset cruise.

At COMO Maalifushi, there are also some very good surf breaks in and around Thaa Atoll. COMO Maalifushi has one particularly good break located on the atoll’s southwest side, which can be experienced on guided surf trips. The surfing season runs from April to October. The fact that COMO Maalifushi is in Thaa Atoll makes it stand apart, with exceptionally pristine waters.
