Maalifushi by COMO Thaa atoll

Our Opinion
A super new resort from COMO in the Thaa Atoll, with bright, airy, well-appointed suites and villas. Service and dining are good quality.

Some good snorkelling to be found at the edge of the inner lagoon - some way from the beach, but a walk along the jetty gets you close to the reef.

Maalifushi is a new island resort from COMO Hotels and Resorts. The island, located in the southerly Thaa Atoll (a 50-minute seaplane ride from Male airport), features a mix of 66 land and over-water suites and villas.

Guests have three dining options; Madi restaurant serves all-day international, Maldivian and healthy Shambhala cuisine, while Thila pool and lounge bar will specialise in salads, pizzas and wood-baked seafood. There is also Tai, a Japanese-inspired restaurant for sashimi and sushi.

A COMO Shambhala Retreat provides holistic wellness and Asian-inspired therapies including signature massages, facials and Ayurveda. There are 8 treatment rooms, some of them double, set over-water with views across the Indian Ocean.

Maalifushi is also a 50-minute seaplane flight from Cocoa Island, COMO's original property in the Maldives, providing the opportunity for a two-centre holiday split between the two resorts.
