COMO Maalifushi, Thaa Atoll, Maldives
Set in a wide lagoon on the south west of Thaa Atoll, Maalifushi, COMO’s latest divine offering, is endowed with so much lush vegetation, you may be forgiven for thinking the island is uninhabited.
In fact, it’s only the overwater villas extending beyond the island’s 800 metres and the odd tell-tale thatched roof piercing the island’s jungle canopy that give hint to what awaits.
Sixty-six luxurious-yet-uncomplicated rooms, suites and villas are equally split overwater and within the tropical island interior; with three Beach Villas complete with private pools and secluded gardens that are particularly family-friendly.
Organised activities and a ‘tweens’ lounge mean a break for grown-ups to go diving or head to the overwater COMO Shambhala Retreat. And to top it all off, there’s great food
inspired by the ocean setting – from sushi and Teppenyaki to wood-fired pizza
and seafood, all to be enjoyed as you wish.
