Stayed at COMO Maalifushi and it was amazing! The hotel offers great structure of restaurants, bar, pool, overwater and beach villas, wonderful spa, water activities and boat. Bikes are available for all rooms and it's a wonderful way to move around the resort. Food is outstanding and so is the services, everybody is so kind and attentive.
Recommend for both couples and also families, as they have a great kids club and activities.
As close to perfect as possible. The experience begins with the beautiful lounge where guests await their seaplane and continues to the stylish, understated rooms overlooking a perfect lagoon. We loved the small size and private feeling of our stay. The seaplane transfer adds a bit to cost, but the incredible views from the plane make it well worth ti
We stayed at COMO Maalifushi in June 2018 and it was an unforgettable stay. From start to finish everything was perfect. Starting with being greeted at Male airport, transferred to a very nice hotel lounge at the waterplane terminal, to the 55 minutes inter island flight. The trip to the island was one of our most breathtaking experiences we’ve had recently. The view from the seaplane was unique, crystall clear water and all the small islands, never saw something before. Our stay was so well organized. In all three restaurants the food was excellent. Our first night we had dinner at Tai where you can order a wide range of Thai and Japanese dishes. The second night we were at Madi for an amazing seafood barbecue with a big selection of salads, sides and all kind of seafood and fish you can imagine. At Thila we had lunch, pizza and burgers are always a good idea.
The island offers so many activities. We went for a turtle snorkeling to a beautiful outer reef by a 10 minutes boat ride and saw a lot of turtles, other reef fish and some corals. Two times a day you can join a Yoga class. The morning Yoga was fantastic and our teacher was super helpful, even if you're a beginner.
One of our highlights was the private island where you can go by kayak. It’s such a peaceful, quiet place. We highly recommend to go there for one or two hours to calm down and relax. The other perfect spot the relax is the wellness by Como Shambal.
One really positive aspect of the island are the bikes, they’re soo comfy, easygoing to ride and you get from A to B super quickly.
The rooms are very comfortable in every way, leaves nothing to be desired for example the infinity pools or the outdoor showers.
The staff ensured that our house was immaculate on a daily basis and the receptionist was very friendly and also extremely helpful.
The truth about the COMO experience is that you will find nothing like it, no matter where you search. Their attention to detail and aim to please goes beyond any service you will ever encounter. COMO Malifushi and Cocoa Island are both luxurious and welcoming. Their lavish taste in all aspects of your accommodations matched with the inviting nature of the way the islands are set up make for an unparalleled voyage that must be experienced.
Our trip to the Maldives could not have been more enjoyable. Both Malifushi and Cocoa Island are equipped with a spot on staff that takes pride in their work and wishes to please. We spent more time in Malifushi and had an opportunity to meet with the Executive Asisstant Manager, Rico Haus, during a social hour. Mr. Haus runs the island in a superb fashion and manages to be there for everyone when they need him. I have traveled the world and interacted with leaders of many different calibers, none of them compare to Rico. His ability to ensure your needs are met go beyond that of any luxury establishment. We met Mr. Haus as we first stepped foot on the island and we felt as if he was at our service until the moment we stepped off. After meeting other guests on the island, we were ensured that Rico's professionalism and devotion to excellence was witnessed by all. As we got to know staff members who worked for Rico, we were assured that his kind-heartedness and compassion did not only stretch between the guests, but with his employees as well. This ability, as a manager, to balance the satisfaction of the customer with the importance of your staff's morale is a very impressive. As a result of Rico's talents, COMO Malifushi is a dreamland you can experience while awake.
Benjamin Kreuz, the General Manager at Cocoa Island, also displayed an incredibly well balanced care for his guests and their needs. Sadly, we were unable to really get to know Benjamin, as our time on Cocoa was limited. Nevertheless, our stay there was above the average standard of luxury. Both of these islands belong in a category of their own, as nothing could possibly compare to their sophistication.
We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to meet such considerate and selfless individuals. Life is filled with things, and things can be beautiful and magnificent. The things we surround ourselves with can reach a state of perfection and extravagance, giving us a sense of exclusivity, but nothing can compare to great people. Luxury can be found anywhere, but the true luxury is found within the people. COMO reaches a level of physical luxury that may be achieved by others if they so desired, but their people will always only be found there.
Thank you for all you do,
Two satisfied guests
My wife and I went to the Maldives to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We were seeking both a location and accompanying accommodation beyond the ordinary. In choosing the COMO Maalifushi (CM) from the plethora of Maldivian offerings, we went through the usual – tripadviser, blogs, talking to friends. Conde Nast had a top 10 Maldive resorts feature that included CM as one of those 10; describing it as a resort that had been recently opened, a bit more out of the way and delivering understated luxury. For a destination that we were travelling 14 hours to and staying at for 8 nights, we had high expectations. And we ended up getting more than we had bargained for. CM delivered on all fronts. The over the water room, bedding, bathroom were indeed luxurious and the food was genuinely exceptional all of the time, particularly considering virtually everything is brought in other than a few herbs and veg that are grown in the island’s quite considerable garden. The island itself is beautiful, rich with natural vegetation and exquisitely laid out. While small, it is large enough. Indeed, bicycles are the preferred mode of transport, which adds a touch of adventurous spirit to the days tempo and is very practical on hot, balmy days. A meandering sand-pathway runs the length of the guest side of the island from which little side pathways lead to enchantingly positioned bungalows as if they were made to be there. The common areas of the resort are beautifully architected accompanied by a notably large – verging on palatial – bathrooms. The main dining area is covered with an expansive, swirling ceiling that incorporates a beautiful light and rain well. A fully equipped gym, yoga room with an excellent instructor from Goa, and wonderful spa treatments means days are not wanting for things to do. However, where the resort truly excelled was in the culture of service that was experienced in virtually all aspects of our ‘island life’ there. Nothing was ever a bother, no matter how large or small the request. The rooms were refreshed to ‘day 1’ standards every day! Everyone smiled and welcomed you like old friends be it at breakfast, bicycling along the pathway or simply serving you a complementary bucket of iced water and sun cream within minutes of landing on the thick, towelling covered loafers fastidiously lined up on the beach. While the 350+ staff (3-to-1 ratio to guests) comprised a melting pot of cultures, they all appeared to have been indoctrinated into the Maldivian way of being…who must be some of the friendlies, most welcoming people on the planet. We left our slice of paradise – quaffed to its palm tree tips – having felt genuinely cared for by the staff, and this was the magic ingredient to the place. Though I do note that the resort was c 40% occupancy and might suggest that paradise becomes a bit busier when that doubles to 80%+. The only gripe on the entire trip was that of other guests ignorantly blah, blah-ing on their mobiles in the restaurants...to create true paradise CM, ban the mobile at least where we eat! While living island lux is not a free exercise (at least not in the Maldives), I thought CM offered value for the dollars spent. It really did seem to strike a rarely found balance with elegance par excellence and the closest we have come to a 10….
