Our View

Como Maalifushi is an enchanting secluded island sanctuary that offers an array of luxury accommodation, a wide selection of aquatic adventures, and embraces the Shambala cuisine and wellness ethos.

Best Time to Travel

Whilst the weather is consistently warm all year, the northeast monsoon occurring from December to April is the driest season and hence high season at Como Maalafushi. The southwest monsoon occurring May to November brings possible rain but ideal underwater visibility and surf swells. The best time for diving is during April, in between the monsoons when the water is at it’s clearest.
