COMO Shambhala Cuisine is a unique nutritional concept that incorporates organic ingredients rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals while still delivering on flavor. Food is raw, steamed or grilled for maximum health benefits. Chefs also make ample use of the tandoor, a type of Indian oven that allows for fat-free cooking whilst introducing a wonderful charcoal flavor. COMO Shambhala Cuisine is served at Madi, in-room dining, and private dining located at nearby uninhabited islands.
A super resort from COMO in the Thaa Atoll, with bright, airy, well-appointed suites and villas. Service and dining are good quality.
Some good snorkelling to be found at the edge of the inner lagoon - some way from the beach, but a walk along the jetty gets you close to the reef.
If its understated elegance, healthy living and beautiful surroundings you are after then this little piece of paradise is worth a visit

Laid-back music, pool tables and an open-air pool bar with ocean views make Thila the relaxed and vibrant heart of island life on COMO Maalifushi.

Madi (meaning Manta Ray in the local Dhivehi language) serves light, flavourful food that takes its inspiration from the region’s fresh, tropical produce and abundant seafood. The menu boasts a range of local, Mediterranean and international dishes served throughout the day, from breakfast to late evening.
Madi also holds three themed nights each week. On Monday night the 'Taste of the Indian Ocean' explores the area's characteristic sweet, sour hot and salty flavours, with traditional Maldivian Boduberu dancing and drumming. Wednesday dinners are Thai, showcasing a culinary journey through the region's most popular dishes. The week ends with a seafood barbeque on Friday night, dining beneath the stars to the sound of live music from local musicians

Thai Massage unblocks trapped energy and increases vitality.

Each of our peaceful spa suites offers panoramic views across the Indian Ocean while also guaranteeing complete privacy as you enjoy your COMO Shambhala experience. In every suite there are two treatment beds, a changing area and access to a private sundeck. These spaces suit treatments for both individuals and couples. All COMO Shambhala experiences include one of our signature therapeutic juices, designed to target specific areas of health and wellbeing.
