FROM VISIT TO A CASTAWAY ISLAND TO A LUXURY SUNSET DOLPHIN CRUISE, THIS IS HOW I SPENT MY DAY IN COMO MAALIFUSHI


If you were to have just one or two days in the wonderful resort of COMO Maalifushi in Maldives, you’d want to read this guide on how to have the most amazing time and leave the place with plenty of unforgettable memories. I did just that and here they are.

VISIT TO LAVADHOO


If you were into books like Robinson Crusoe and TV series like LOST, you’d be thrilled to visit a deserted island just 10 minutes away from COMO Maalifushi. It’s an amazing feeling to be standing on a tiny castaway island in the middle of the ocean without anyone else there. Of course, if you want to you can turn it into a luxury experience, by having a BBQ or a romantic picnic for two there.

LUNCH AT THILA RESTAURANT


We were back from Lavadhoo just before lunch and headed straight to Thila where I had a meal that I still think about: an insanely good ceviche followed by fish tacos. A little disclosure: I had the exact same lunch two days in a row, because once I find something I love, I want to have it again and again. And look at the pictures, can you blame me?

 

To continue your fun packed day at the resort, you can take an afternoon to try out various water activities offered  by COMO Maalifushi. I, personally, don’t do any (and feel quite ashamed about it) but it is literally a water sports paradise there. Luckily these aquamarine waters allow people like me to see all the beautiful exotic fish without going snorkeling and just by looking down from the jetty or standing in the shallow bits of the ocean.

SUNSET DOLPHIN CRUISE


At around 5pm we were all changed for an exciting and luxurious evening and headed to a sunset cruise on a beautiful super yacht ‘Cameron’ with the hopes of seeing wild dolphins. And we saw plenty! I think there were few dozens of them following our yacht and playing in the water. We were observing them with a glass of champagne and canapes in our hands. I actually had to pinch myself to make sure that this was really happening as it looked and sounded too good to be true.

 

DINNER AT TAI


Back on the land and straight to TAI – a Japanese restaurant – for some sunset cocktails and dinner. But first there is another must activity that you don’t want to miss. It’s the feeding of the fish and the presentation by a marine biologist on all the various species of sea life that can be found around the island.

TAI restaurant is in the best location for sunset viewings which is a whole separate activity in Maldives. And once it gets dark you are ready to indulge into the finest Japanese cuisine.

BREAKFAST


As you can imagine, the breakfast in COMO Maalifushi is pretty spectacular too. I strongly recommend you to be up early in Maldives, to experience it’s sunrises. You can do it by cycling around the island or practising yoga. Then head to MADI restaurant for some fresh pastry and fruit. And voila – you are ready for another day in paradise!

Oh… In a Paradise like place such as this one, it isn’t hard to come up with the ways to completely let
our hedonist nature out and enjoy the day to the max.
Amazing photos, everything looks so surreal and food super delicious!
