Facilities and activities

  • COMO Shambhala Retreat at Maalifushi Spa

    COMO Shambhala Retreat at Maalifushi offers holistic,
    Asian-inspired treatments with views of the Indian
    Ocean. It is the embodiment of a philosophy for healthy
    living that COMO Shambhala has successfully refined
    at its award-winning Retreats all over the world.
    There are eight overwater, ocean-facing treatment
    rooms, steam rooms, a pool, and an open air yoga
    pavillion–all enveloped by blue horizons and gentle
    sea breezes.
  • Water Sports

    The Maldives’ calm, shallow waters provide the perfect place to learn sailing while the open water can offer challenges for the more experienced.

    The dry season sees light to moderate winds from the northeast. The wet season sees moderate southwesterly winds. There is very rarely over 25 knots of wind, making the Maldives a year-round sailing destination with the seas at their calmest during the high season (roughly November to April).

    At Maalifushi, catamaran sailing is available. Charges apply for lessons or for when you wish to be accompanied by a captain, or for guided snorkeling expeditions on a catamaran.
    For those who don’t dive, there is no need to miss out on the spectacular marine life of the Maldives. With just a mask and flippers, there is plenty to see around each resort and in the lagoon, with Maalifushi’s undisturbed waters making for some excellent opportunities. Children also much enjoy snorkelling, with complimentary gear provided to guests of Maalifushi.

    Snorkellers, who can enjoy a scheduled complimentary snorkel trip with Maalifushi’s trained staff, will see an abundance of marine life such as Moray Eels, Trumpet Fish, Needle Fish, Soldier Fish, Lion Fish, Grouper, Snapper, Cod, Anthias, Cardinal Fish, Bluefin Jack, Sweetlips, Emperors, Butterfly Fish, Banner Fish, Angel Fish, Amemone Fish, Parrot Fish, Powder Blue Surgeon Fish, Convict Surgeonfish, Unicorn Fish and Puffer Fish. Occasionally Fusiliers are spotted here, as well as Trigger Fish, octopus and turtle. *Ride the Waves at Maalifushi

    The Maldives are rapidly becoming popular among surfers, with some great long curving atoll reef waves. ‘Farms’ break is 25 minutes away on a guided boat trip with Tropicsurf. The waves here are medium-sized while more challenging barrels are also available within reach of the resort. Best of all, crowds are few.

    *Maalifushi by COMO and Tropicsurf

    Maalifushi works with luxury surf pioneers, Tropicsurf, to offer easy access to some of the Indian Ocean’s most sought-after breaks.

    The resort has a resident Tropicsurf guide from April to October, working with guests of all abilities — from lagoon training, where fundamental skills such as balance are taught, through to expert instruction when tackling some of the toughest breaks in the Maldives. As part of the surf programme, equipment can be hired and boat transfers arranged — including to the famous ‘Farms’ break on the resort’s southwest side.
  • Diving

    Maalifushi benefits from being brilliantly placed for diving. While around 15-25 sites in the Thaa Atoll are already chronicled, there are still numerous unexplored channels and reefs, with the waters here offering something for all levels of competence.

    The resort’s expert dive instructors will guage ability levels carefully. All divers are required to hold an International SCUBA diving license, which you will be asked to provide together with your logbook. Local regulations mean that guests must dive in buddy pairs; for safety reasons, a guide will also be provided at each dive for those staying at Maalifushi.

    Divers may be required to partake of an orientation dive, where an instructor will ask you to demonstrate three key skills necessary to ensure safety (regulator recovery and clearing, mask clearing and alternate air source breathing). Orientation dives are not necessary if you have proof of diving within the last three months and have proof of over 30 logged dives.

    Although stunning, diving in the Maldives is a fragile beauty. Maalifushi is committed to preserving the reefs and will provide expert advice on diving with minimal environmental impact.
  • Fishing

    Both trolling and casting are employed to work the reefs. Large reef fish such as grouper, wahoo, giant and bluefin trevally, red snapper and dogtooth tuna are the prize catches.

    At COMO Maalifushi guests can experience the thrills and frustration of fighting a true champion of the reef with excursions that include fishing equipment, water, soft drinks, beer, tea and coffee.

    Half-day trip (4 hours): US$1,000
    Full-day trip (8 hours): US$1,500

    **Please note that all prices are subject to change without prior notice. COMO Maalifushi’s friendly and helpful crews are on hand to assist you with bottom fishing. If you are lucky enough to get a bite, we suggest that the fish is cooked for you, as fresh as possible in your preferred way, for your next lunch or dinner.

    We ask that you only keep enough for your own enjoyment and return all other fish to the sea.

    All hand lines and bait are provided.

    5.30pm to 7.30pm
    Per person: US$120
    Private fishing: US$500 per boat charter

    **Please note: For private charters, if you would like your fish cooked at the restaurant there is an additional charge of US$25 per person (no surcharge on group fishing trips).

    **Please note that all prices are subject to change without prior notice.
  • The Whale Shark Experience

    Visit Maalifushi for the possibility of getting close to whale sharks. From the resort, we take you out by boat, where you can swim alongside them or simply watch from the deck.

    Once you have signed up to this excursion, we will call you when there has been a whale shark sighting — anytime between 6pm and 10pm. Our boat will take you 20 minutes north towards Fahala, the Maldives’ biggest island. At our destination, crystal clear waters allow for an aquarium-like view. The docile whale sharks usually ignore snorkellers while busy feeding, leaving guests feeling as though they’re silently entering the whale sharks’ world. You may also spot the occasional pod of dolphins.

    Snorkelling with the whale sharks is priced at US$250 per person. Observing them from the boat costs US$150 per person. The excursions takes around two hours and is only available from December to April.

    For more information or to book, please contact [email protected]

    Please note: This activity is dependent on the whale sharks’ behaviour; we cannot guarantee they will appear. Prices are subject to tax and service charge. We take a maximum of six people snorkelling and six people observing on any trip. The minimum age of observers is six years old; to snorkel, you must be aged over 12.
