Resort Description

COMO  Maalifushi  in  the  Maldives  is  the  only  resort  in  unspoilt  Thaa  Atoll, surrounded  by  Indian  Ocean  vistas.

Crystal clear seas and abundant, diverse marine life makes Thaa Atoll a world-class diving desitnation. Look out for dolphins, turtles, macro life and reef fish throughout the year. White tip reef sharks are often spotted between May and November, with manta sightings reported between December and April. 

The resort is an ultimate  away-from-it-all  destination,  with  white  sand beaches,  tropical  greenery  and  a  safe,  cobalt  lagoon  flanked  by  a  healthy  house  reef. Each  rooms  décor  is  designed  to  bring  the  colours  of  sea,  sand  and  sky  into  the  heart  of  the  residence.  

COMO  Maalifushi  has  three  restaurants:  Thila͛,  for  easygoing  food;  Madi͛,  which  serves  a  mix  of  local,  regional  and  Mediterranean  cuisine;  and  Tai͛,  which  ranks  among  the  finest  Japanese  restaurants  in  the  Maldives.

 Asian  therapies  are  available  at  the  award-winning  COMO  Shambhala  Retreat  at  COMO  Maalifushi,  which  also  offers  yoga,  a  fully-equipped  gym  and  a  range  of  holistic  wellness  therapies.    

 The  resort  provides  numerous  opportunities  to  explore  the  region  with  instruction  in  sailing,  diving,  fishing  and  seasonal  surfing  available.

What to see

Whilst mantas are only occasionally seen around the atoll, you’ll have plenty of eagle rays to watch instead. Nurse sharks rest in secluded spots, turtles feed on the coral, and reef sharks track their prey.

The healthy, soft corals are like an artist’s palette covered in mixed paint. The reefs are covered in sponges and the sea fans are grand to the point of being baroque.

If you’re a photography fan, there is plenty of macro life amongst the small coral bommies. The felt-like textured nudibranchs are ready to pose for your shot, but the crustaceans may retract from your lens if you're not fast enough.

Your dive log will be as big as the Napoleon wrasse after you’ve finished exploring the atoll’s many sites.
