It is the ultimate away-from-it-all destination for families, couples, surfers and divers, with some excellent breaks nearby, seasonal whale shark and manta ray sightings as well as Lavadhoo, Maalifushi’s uninhabited private island perfect for a castaway experience.

Nearby Attractions

  • World-class dive sites: The abundance of marine life combined with clear waters make this area of the Maldives one of the world’s best for diving. Thaa Atoll’s status in the dive world is assured by seasonal sightings of whale sharks, hammerheads and manta rays—all within easy reach of COMO Maalifushi.
  • Surfing: There are very good surf breaks in and around Thaa Atoll, and COMO Maalifushi has one of the best. Located on the atoll’s southwest side, this break can be experienced on guided surf trips. The surfing season runs from April to October.
  • Island BBQ: Head underwater to explore exceptional snorkelling points, trek across the uninhabited island through lush vegetation, or simply relax on the beach with your every need catered to. At lunchtime, our chefs serve a delicious island BBQ, from fresh fish to succulent meat.
  • Family Castaway Picnic: Swim, sunbathe, nap and make memories as a family with our castaway picnic. Waiting for you on the shoreline will be a gourmet picnic prepared by our chefs. A selection of different snacks can be found, with sweet treats for younger ones and a minibar for the adults. 

Activities

  • Private Yacht Charters: ‘Cameron’, our 68-foot Hatteras ‘sport fisher’ yacht, with full crew, can be used for game fishing trips, opening up the archipelago’s best waters for tuna, wahoo, marlin and sailfish, and diving itineraries to ‘off the grid’ spots.
  • Fishing / Sunset Cruise: Resort guests wanting to go fishing have access to the expertise and equipment of experienced boat captains. Those who just want to take in the views of the open ocean can opt for a sunset cruise instead aboard a local ‘dhoni’ fishing boat.
  • Romantic Beach Dinner: Make memories under a canopy of stars. Our team can set up an intimate dining table either on the deck beside your private pool or on the secluded beach. In complete privacy, your butler will serve a three-course meal—tailor-made by our chefs to your requirements.
  • Candlelight Dinner: Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, on your honeymoon, or just want to create a memorable occasion, our team is on hand to help. We can set up a table on the sand, or on your own pool deck, and illuminate it with candles as dusk falls. Dine together on a menu that you’ve requested, or choose from the à la carte menu at Madi.
  • Whale Shark Experience: Visit COMO Maalifushi for the possibility of getting close to whale sharks. From the resort, we take you out by boat, where you can swim alongside them or simply watch from the deck. At our destination, crystal clear waters allow for an aquarium-like view. The docile whale sharks usually ignore snorkelers while busy feeding, leaving guests feeling as though they’re silently entering the whale sharks’ world.
