About COMO Maalifushi
COMO Maalifushi in the Maldives is the only resort in pristine Thaa Atoll — a 60-minute seaplane journey from the international airport in Malé — surrounded by Indian Ocean vistas. This makes it the ultimate away-from-it-all destination with white strands of beach, inland tropical greenery and a safe, cobalt lagoon flanked by a healthy house reef. The resort provides numerous opportunities to explore the region with instruction in sailing, diving and seasonal surfing, using a fleet of boats for fishing and a nearby white-sand island where guests can enjoy a private island picnic experience. But while activities are numerous, this is a luxurious resort designed with relaxation front of mind. Each room’s décor is designed to bring the colours of sea, sand and sky into the heart of the residence, be it an overwater villa or a beach house set among garden palms. COMO Maalifushi has three restaurants: ‘Thila’, for easygoing food, such as wood-fired pizzas and salads; ‘Madi’, which serves a mix of local, regional and Mediterranean cuisine; and ‘Tai’, which ranks among the finest Japanese restaurants in the Maldives, featuring a sushi bar serving freshly caught seafood, and an enviable, overwater location. Guests can fully embrace the range of holistic Asian therapies available at the award-winning COMO Shambhala Retreat at COMO Maalifushi, which also offers yoga, a fully-equipped gym and a range of holistic wellness therapies. The guest experience at COMO Maalifushi is defined from beginning to end by COMO’s exacting, passionate service.
 
About COMO Cocoa Island
COMO Cocoa Island is a private island in the Maldives. Wrapped in white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, the resort is in close proximity to some of the best dive sites in the world. Yet it is also accessible, for the resort is located in South Male’s coral atolls, a 35-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport. The tranquil setting is enhanced by the understated elegance of COMO Cocoa Island’s rooms, which resemble local dhoni fishing boats and feature direct access to the shallow lagoon. All have a private outdoor sun deck, as well as spacious living and sleeping areas decorated in flowing white muslin. The pale colours contribute to the overall feeling of quiet, contemporary design. Ufaa, the resort’s restaurant, serves fresh local produce and seafood cooked in the Keralan style, while Faru bar overlooks the pristine infinity-edge pool. COMO Cocoa Island’s spa, COMO Shambhala Retreat, offers rebalancing treatments, including Ayurveda, massages and facials.
