Travelers' Choice
Maalifushi by COMO is the first luxury resort in the Maldives to open in the pristine Thaa Atoll in the archipelago’s southwest. With overwater villas and garden suites, 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 whale shark sightings are common.

Como is a fantastic resort, the island and location is beautiful, the villas are beautifully designed and spacious, staff are excellent and food was mostly excellent. My wife and I had a great time, making the most of the spa, snorkelling and even went out on their boat which, whilst expensive, was an amazing experience. However there are some things you should be aware of when booking: 1) this is not a new resort, the villas are older and starting to show it - we had to have a few things fixed during our stay which we would not expect given the pricing 2) the resort has a lot of families, this didn’t bother us both those wishing to avoid children may want to look elsewhere 3) the staff are excellent but seemed a little stretched at the moment. Butler experience depends on who you get. Our first butler wasn’t great but was then changed to Joy who was excellent. We were probably just unlucky.

Some pros and cons. The island and resort are beautiful with lovely beaches, excellent snorkeling, and friendly staff. We stayed in an overwater bungalow that was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful outdoor area and plunge pool. We loved the homemade bath products which smelled and felt great. Our one issue with the bungalow, which was a big one, was that the air conditioning didn’t work properly. We had it on the highest/coolest it could go and were still sleeping without covers and sweating during the night. They came several times to “fix” it and they always left saying it was working correctly, but it was never repaired. We were extremely disappointed by this given the amount we were paying. The food was hit and miss. There were some delicious dishes and some bad ones. We had a $22 chocolate mouse that was essentially two spoonfuls of chocolate jello pudding. The fish dishes were excellent. The restaurants always felt extremely crowded and the food/drink service at beach and pool was very poor. They offered some fun tours, but we sadly weren’t able to do any of them. We actually chose the resort because they offered a whale shark excursion that looked fun, and we even messaged the resort a month in advance to try to book it, but were told we could only book upon arrival. On arrival we were put on a waiting list and, despite the tour operating nearly every night (sometimes twice), we never got called to do it (despite checking in with them daily). Similarly, we tried to do a turtle snorkeling tour that was also full and were again put on a waiting list that never materialized. While we definitely enjoyed a relaxing time on the beautiful island, we much preferred the first resort we stayed at, which was less expensive with better service, food, and amenities.

It was our First time visit to Como Maalifushi and Maldives with Wife & my 4 year old Kid. It was an incredible place, we stayed here for almost a week, a good summer holiday for my Kid and also far from daily hustle for Me & my Wife. I reached island through seaplane, they picked us up in the sea-boat, it took less than 5mins to reach the island deck. The island is magnificent, as soon as you arrive at Como Maalifushi, you will get a warm welcome from staff. They greet you out of love with a tasty coconut water. You will be assigned a butler who will take care of your stay from beginning till the end. The staffs are very friendly. Food was fresh and well prepared. If you want something just ask and they can make it. As i was on a veg side I was having too less selections in the menu, I requested Mr Ramesh who was personally taking care of my food all 3 times without any hesitation he was getting my tasty food ready. I had a good meal each day and used to relax in the pool in my villa or on the beach. The entire property is clean and tidy, they manicure the sand regularly. I was staying first 4 days in Beach Suite with private pool. The room was pretty big it can easily accommodate 4-5 in a family, clean & neatly arranged, a bath tub and a private pool, access to the beach directly. My 4 year old kid she just enjoyed the pool+beach daily. You will get a good relaxing sleep listening to the rippling sound of the sea water & its cool & calm breeze at night. In the mornings you will get crippling of birds which was so soothing, will clearly feel you are far from daily tension life. If you are going with your kids, take Beach villa with pool the kids are going to enjoy a lots. They will enjoy the beach and play on the sands all day. There are 3 restaurants - Madi for Breakfast & Dinner, Thila Bar, Japanese restaurant. All 3 are excellent. You will also get to see a shark at Japanese restaurant on the water deck. The island has so much greenery in and around surrounded by plants and trees. You can ask for a bicycle at the reception which is free of cost, you can cruise entire island easily, I had got a small cycle for my kid she was happily cycling & learnt cycling on her own. They also provide buggy service on the island for easy access from one corner to the another. I had also stayed on over Water villa on the sunset side, it was fabulous. You can easily get down to the sea from your villa and swim or snorkel, you will get a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean. Room, pool and walk around areas of both Beach villa and Water villa are one at the same just a copy. In beach villa outside you will get plants & trees, In over water villa you will get directly sea. One should stay at both the villas on their stay and experience the stay. My kid was little afraid of the night breeze and noise from the ocean on the water villa room. Refused to walk at nights on the wooden bridge too. But for couples the water villa will be thrilling. Their Spa is really awesome, Spa rooms are again on the Water Villas, you will experience a nice feeling. There are lots of sea activities in and around the island, just pack your beach needs prior. They also have a kids play area, you can leave your kid to play there & you can head on to the pool or beach for relaxing. The staff there takes care of the kid with a great supervision. From Maldives Como Maalifushi staffs helped our arrival & dropped us off at the Sea Plane lounge. From there took a Seaplane, it took me 50mins to reach the island. Sometimes Seaplane operators pick up/drop off other guests en-route to your destination, thus some extra time added to you travel, however the pilots make sure the turn around time will be less than 10mins, You will be cruising around 5000 feet from sea level, you will get the beautiful glimpse of other Maldivian islands. You will be little disturbed from the loud noise of Seaplane's propellers. But it will be a unique experience. You can build a lovely memory on Como Maalifushi island, We loved the entire stay, My kid still remembers the beach villa and pool & wants to get back there. It was our wedding anniversary on the 1st day and My Birthday on 1st May, we celebrated both the occasions on the island. A special thanks for the entire team for making a memorable holiday for us. Your hospitality was excellent. I thank Mr Fillipe, Mr Purna (My Butler), Mr Ramesh, Ranna, Eta, K Tei and many other staffs for making our stay wonderful. Will surely come back again......With lots of love thank you once again....!!

Como Maalifuschi is a unique property in Maldives. The layout is perfect for families with everything you need in very close proximity. The grounds are well maintained And constantly manicured. You will be assigned a butler liaison to communicate all your needs. Food is fresh and well prepared with a nice variety. If you want something just ask and they can make it! We stayed in a deluxe over water villa on sunset side. It was huge and partitioned well for a family of 4. One of best layouts I have seen in water villa anywhere. Spa is beautiful with solid practitioners. Other highlights are well appointed kids club with yard and friendly staff, whale shark and sea turtle snorkeling and sunset cruises. Tropic Surf Co is also on island to cater to surfers in the falimy and take you to uncrowded waves. They are a first class service. All around service on island is good. There is a quiet relaxed vibe at Como. Some may mistake this for slow service. I did not interpret it that way. If you have needs you just need to communicate it and staff will accommodate. Otherwise you will be left alone to relax in paradise. A true 5 star resort on more remote Maldives with exceptional 100 foot ledge deep drop snorkel or dive reef straight off the pier on the resort. Best snorkel set up I have ever seen in Maldives. As soon as you enter the water you can see sharks rays and variety of fish with easy access. Requires an additional sea plane ride from Male which is an incredible view of the atolls

The second time at COMO Maalifushi. Sobah and his crew make an excellent job. We felt 100% well treated without missing a thing! If you like to take off your shoes and your daily hustle and leave by side any dress code, COMO Maalifushi is the no. 1!

First time visit to Como maalifushi, having been to maldives a number of times expectations were high as previous resorts had delivered a very high level of service. The management and staff at Como Maalifushi follow very carefully every aspect of the guest experience and the result was a very special experience for my wife and 12 yr old twin daughters, who had some wonderful memorable excursions, especially swimming with a whale shark. The breakfasts had everything you would expect and as with the other dining experiences the standard was high in the quality of food and service. The Japanese restaurant was really very good with an amazing Toothfish dish that was outstanding. I can only praise and thank all the management team and the other members of staff for a wonderful time and I hope to return in the near future .

What an incredible place, without exception it is perfect. The staff throughout are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food, as you would expect from a Como is outstanding, with attention to detail added at every stage. The water villa was perfect. The diving team made the whole experience personal and ensured I was well looked after. Tip, book the whale shark experience as soon as you get off the boat if its an option...I wish I had! The spa is sublime and worth a visit.

We had the most amazing vacation at Como Maalifushi in the Maldives. The pavilion was beautiful. Our backyard was an aquarium and the beauty of the property was beyond our wildest dreams. Each meal was a feast and the floating breakfast in the pool was super cool. Angie was at our constant contact and very warm and helpful as was everyone at the location. We highly recommend this trip
