Discover this barefoot get-away, unlike any other. Nestled in the Thaa Atoll archipelago in the Maldives is the luxurious Maalifushi by Como. This is where we discovered that not all Maldivian stilted sea villas are created equal. This is the newest addition to the Como hotel group known for providing five-star havens with a steer towards wellbeing. The natural scenery and high-end but low-key rustic decor is enough to induce relaxation, but there is so much on offer in the way of unwinding as well as adventure...

The accommodation is sublime and simple, making the most of the crystal clear waters, each room sits on stilts above the Indian Ocean, made from beautiful natural materials and decorated with a minimalist touch, its the best form of indoor-outdoor living. Private steps allow you to dunk straight into the ocean and snorkel with your friendly neighbours, the rays, turtles and fish, or you can plunge into your private infinity pool. 

The resort offers a plethora of both calming and adventurous activities from an on-site dive centre, nearby swell for surf-lovers and boat trips to nearby uninhabited islands, as well as a schedule of wellness and relaxation at the onsite yoga pavilion and of course a state of the art Shambhala spa with an extensive spa menu to luxuriate in.
