The first luxury resort in the south west Thaa Atoll, COMO Maalifushi boasts impressive levels of remoteness and seclusion. Surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, this private island resort treats guests to understated style, barefoot elegance and, above all, a relaxing atmosphere.
Dotted over water, suites and villas are built off wooden walkways, with light and airy living spaces that lead on to decked terraces with a private pool and direct access to the shallow lagoon below. On land, soft elegant rooms, suites and villas are set within lush gardens, with direct or easy access to the beach and in many cases, private pool and alfresco dining areas. Spacious two bedroom accommodation options over water or on land offer private lawn or beach access and own pool.
Sophisticated yet relaxed cuisine can be found on all of the menus. Whether by candlelight or simply by the pool, the Japanese flavours at Tai, Maldivian and Mediterranean fare at Madi, light dishes at Thila Bar or a barbecue on the private picnic island each cater to every taste. At the COMO Shambhala Retreat Spa, the over water treatment rooms, pool and open-air Yoga pavilion provide an idyllic place to unwind, while the excellent snorkelling and diving opportunities will keep active guests enthralled. With excursions to uninhabited private islands and a Marine Biologist on hand, you are sure to discover the colourful nature of the island’s surrounding waters.
