Press release from: COMO Hotels and Resort

‘Maalifushi by COMO’ will be the Thaa Atoll’s first luxury resort - a secluded island retreat with a uniquely private location.

COMO Hotels and Resorts has announced it will open an exclusive new property in the Maldives this October. Maalifushi by COMO, an eight-hectare private island in the southerly Thaa Atoll, will be the company’s second resort in the Maldives. Its sister property, Cocoa Island by COMO, located further north in the South Malé atoll, opened in 2002.

The 66-room property will be the first luxury resort on the unspoilt Thaa Atoll where it will offer away-from-it-all seclusion and an abundant underwater experience. The island’s pristine white sands and bright turquoise lagoons are neighboured by a string of uninhabited islands – perfect dashes of powdery sand and lolling palm trees – including another island belonging to the resort that can be booked for castaway picnics and romantic private dining.

On the main resort island, tropical vegetation featuring exotic birdlife provides lush curtains for private rooms, suites and villas, as well as Maalifushi’s ‘Madi’ restaurant, ‘Thila’ pool and lounge bar. Overwater accommodation, including a number of exclusive luxury suites and villas with private pools, as well as ‘Tai’ restaurant, can be found on the west of the island, all offering uninterrupted views across the ocean. Interiors throughout this luxury resort in Maldives are by Japanese designer Koichiro Ikebuchi; they will bear the hallmarks of COMO’s signature, pared-back style, with locally sourced materials, natural light and open vistas taking centre stage.

Underwater, the Thaa Atoll boasts a range of unspoiled corals, attracting a whole host of colourful reef fish and sea creatures. Opportunities to spot magnificent Hammerhead and Whale Sharks also offer a rare environment for dive enthusiasts.

Other key highlights of Maalifushi by COMO will include:

Three expansive, two-bedroom overwater COMO Villas
‘Madi’ restaurant featuring all-day international, Maldivian and healthful COMO Shambhala Cuisine
Overwater ‘Tai’ restaurant and bar serving Japanese-inspired cuisine incorporating fresh, locally-sourced fish and seafood
COMO Shambhala Retreat spa with gym, eight overwater treatment rooms and yoga pavilion
On-island Dive Centre and guided diving excursions including a Marine Biologist and PADI instructors
Activities and excursions including dolphin cruises, fishing, snorkeling and sailing
Maalifushi by COMO will be reached by a 50-minute seaplane ride from the Maldives’s main airport at Malé.
