The Maldives has a consistent temperature of about 86°F (30°C). The tropical islands have two distinct seasons, or monsoons. April, a transitional time between the monsoons, is known for the clear water, which is appealing to divers. The iruvai (northeast monsoon) is hot and dry and runs from December to April, making this the official high season. Rain is more likely from May to November (during hulghangu, or southwest monsoon), making this the official low season. However, this is also a time when underwater visibility on the western side of the atolls is at its best. Surfing is particularly good during the official low season, from May to November.


This is the first boutique hotel in the Maldives by Japanese architect Koichiro Ikebuchi, whose sensitive approach to nature and respect for cultural authenticity is reflected in COMO Maalifushi's uncomplicated, succinct design. Accommodation includes 33 overwater villas and suites and 32 rooms, villas, suites and residences amid lush tropical vegetation. All are built with New Zealand pine with Kajan thatched roofs. Floor-to-ceiling windows open to substantial decks. Décor further brings the sea, sand and sky into the heart of every room, which have high-raftered ceilings and teak floors.
