COMO Maalifushi is the only resort to open in the Maldives’ Thaa Atoll, nestled in the archipelago’s southern reaches. With overwater villas and beach suites, COMO Maalifushi is therefore the ultimate away-from-it-all destination for families, couples, surfers and divers. There are some excellent breaks nearby as well as a string of uninhabited private islands, where there are seasonal hammerhead and manta ray sightings.

As we console ourselves that today is our last day at COMO Maalifushi, we’re overjoyed that the last eight days have been truly amazing from start to finish. Before arriving, communication with the staff was pleasant and responsive. They addressed our questions and assisted us with a few special requests. This fostered a strong sense of confidence and set the tone for what was to be an outstanding experience. Upon arrival (by seaplane), we were greeted warmly by the management team and our butler, Joy. After introductions and some pleasantries, we were whisked to our overwater villa, where we wrapped up check-in and reviewed the activities schedule with Joy. Over the course of our stay, Joy was a godsend. When I tweaked my ankle, he was there to drive us to dinner and offer the services of the on-call doctor. He helped arrange a sea turtle snorkeling excursion, coordinated a candlelit dinner on the beach, and set us up with a high tech telescope in our villa, when he heard of our love of stargazing. Joy was instrumental in ensuring we got the most out of our stay. The accommodations were stellar. All fit and finishes exuded quality, without being gaudy. The COMO ethos of casual luxury suited us perfectly. Our villa was very private and quiet, and the only sounds we heard were the ocean, the pool, and an occasional seaplane. The food was exemplary. Breakfast by the pool each morning was something to look forward to, with a nice assortment of buffet and à la carte offerings. Everything was fresh and perfectly made. Dinner was equally, if not more, impressive. In particular, the on-site Japanese restaurant, Tai, was a standout. All-in-all, this was hands-down the best vacation we have ever taken. We’re already planning to return later this year or early next. Thank you, COMO Maalifushi! - Mark VanKirk
Dear Como Team - thx for the execellent stay at your Resort ! Especially we have to name Mr. Purna - our buttler !!!! He was brilliant! Friendly , always there , very fast in fulfillingl our wishes ! 2 points to have perhaps eyes on : The waiting period from Male to Como was too long- 3 1/2 hours waiting on the airport for the seaplane! And one minor point were the stairs to the sea from our Water Suite - why is the last part to the sea so onerous? But the whole Team, the food including the breakfast, the water suite, the housecleaning , the special event on tai Beach - simply WONDERFUL , EXCELLLENT and UNIQUE 👍❤️ We‘ll hope to see you/us again !!!! Warm regards S and H
I was super lucky to be taken here by my husband for my significant birthday. The Maldives have always been on our bucket list so it was safe to say I was excited! I’d read many reviews and kept a close eye on Como’s social media so my expectations were high! The bar had been set! But what I wasn’t expecting was for my expectations to not just be met but to be far exceeded! From the moment we were greeted off the seaplane by our hosts we knew we had come somewhere special. Not only is the island breathtakingly beautiful, it’s intimate and serene and so very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and the care and attention taken by the staff is quite simply 110%. The accommodation is beautifully furnished, our own little oasis amongst the tropical trees overlooking the sea and reef. I favoured using the outdoor shower listening to the birds and looking up at the blue skies whilst inhaling the most amazing smelling aromatherapy products! It’s hard not to relax here. You can do as little or as much as you like. We loved taking each day as it came starting with a leisurely breakfast- so delicious and enjoyed chatting to the staff who all clearly love working here and delivering such a high level of service. The food is second to none and we enjoyed both restaurants and the themed menu evenings. I’m not sure we’ve ever been anywhere quite like it and feel hard pushed to think we find anywhere better in the Maldives( in fact we were told so on many occasion by other guests who had previously been to other islands)! We loved everything about our stay that’s for sure and I really hope that one day we will get to return. What Como Maalifushi gave us was so much more than just a week on a beautiful island. We literally found paradise and a chance to step off the treadmill that is life and for that it will always have a special place in my heart. Special mention to Zayan our helpful butler, the super lovely Maria and her team in food and beverage- always smiling, Riki the marine biologist for her expertise and the wonderful therapist who gave me the best Indian head and reflexology treatment( apologies I forget your name) Thank you all for making our stay the best!
