Water Villa

A dream destination for lovers the world over, the Maldives delivers six-star romance – and the newest dot on this far-flung Indian Ocean seascape is Maalifushi by Como.


Villa pool with sun loungers

Designed by Japanese architect Koichiro Ikebuchi, this intimate private island resort features 66 beach and overwater suites and villas, a luxe COMO Shambhala Wellness Retreat, two restaurants including the overwater Tai restaurant and bar, and world-class diving opportunities.

The island’s pristine white sands and fabled turquoise lagoons will entice even the most camera-shy couples and the digs are seriously luxe too. Our tip? Splurge on a two-bedroom overwater COMO Villa. These Villas sits above the lagoon and have a large private pool. They also come with their own private butler, making them Maalifushi’s ultimate luxury experience, with two large bedrooms suitable for two couples sharing or just having a little extra space to stretch out.
