The Maldives - Maalifushi by COMO

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 there are seasonal whale shark sightings.


Water Villa with private pool

These stunning Maldives water villas are designed by Japanese architect Koichiro Ikebuchi and are located on their own jetty to the west of the island.

Each villa has its own pool, sundeck and full-length windows overlooking the Indian Ocean. The large and airy sitting area can double up as a sleeping area for kids.
