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.
COMO Maalifushi is an island resort from COMO Hotels and Resorts. Located in the sparkling turquoise waters of the Maldives’ southerly Thaa Atoll, COMO Maalifushi features a mix of 65 land and over-water suites and villas. COMO Maalifushi is the perfect combination with COMO Cocoa Island, COMO’s original property in the Maldives, providing the opportunity to island-hop between the two resorts.
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 cobalt 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.
Our Maldives resort accommodation references indigenous architecture while remaining elegantly pared back to reflect the island’s calming setting. Our overwater suites and villas are built off wooden walkways that stand above the shallow lagoon. Each has its own private terrace for slipping into the sea, while our garden rooms benefit from being set in the island’s tropical heart.

At COMO Maalifushi, we rely on the same principles: local seafood that’s so fresh, we serve it as sushi and sashimi at our Japanese restaurant, Tai, as well as organic produce rendered in healthy, all-day dining at Madi, Thila, and on our COMO Shambhala menus. Flexibility is key, our chefs always aim to accommodate food intolerances, the preferences of children, and discerning palates full of expectation.
COMO Shambhala Cuisine is a unique nutritional concept that incorporates organic ingredients rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals while still delivering on flavor. Food is raw, steamed or grilled for maximum health benefits. Chefs also make ample use of the tandoor, a type of Indian oven that allows for fat-free cooking whilst introducing a wonderful charcoal flavor. COMO Shambhala Cuisine is served at Madi, in-room dining, and private dining located at nearby uninhabited islands.
‘Tai’ (Japanese for red snapper), which is a celebratory fish in Japanese culture, showcases sustainable caught seafood from the Indian Ocean. There is also a cocktail bar offering stunning views of the Maldivian sunset. Tai is open six days a week except Fridays, when a seafood BBQ is offered on the beach between Madi and Thila.
Thila is named after rock formations in the Maldives that are covered with abundant marine life. As a place to congregate, it inspires our informal Maldives restaurant and pool bar where guests can come to chill out. Food at Thila is easygoing and family-friendly, with salads, freshly cooked seafood and pizzas. Laid-back music, pool tables and an open-air pool bar with ocean views make Thila the relaxed and vibrant heart of island life on COMO Maalifushi. Pizza Cabana is open daily from 12.00pm to 6.00pm.
At COMO Maalifushi you can find a place for the most memorable of meals, from intimate gourmet meals on the deck of your villa to picnics and candlelit dinners on the beach. The nearby uninhabited islands can be yours as the sun sets and rises, with chef-prepared meals served by private butlers.
Our COMO Shambhala Retreat at COMO Maalifushi in the Maldives goes hand-in-hand with the private island resort experience.
