Maal­i­fushi by Como

India Today - - TRAVEL -

The last thing on your mind dur­ing your stay at Maal­i­fushi would be travel. It’s the kind of place you’ll never want to leave. When the sea­plane pulls up at the un­spoilt Thaa Atoll in the far south, there is no choice but to be stunned into si­lence. The ex­cep­tion­ally lux­u­ri­ous re­sort is sur­rounded by soft-as-flour sand, ideal as a jump-off point for surf breaks and scuba div­ing. That’s only if you can leave your over­wa­ter villa or the Sham­bala Re­treat where Asian holis­tic heal­ing of­fers nur­tur­ing mas­sages and well­ness treat­ments. De­spite nu­mer­ous din­ing op­tions on the is­land, you’ll find your­self be­ing drawn to Madi, a restau­rant that of­fers food an­chored around the re­gion’s or­ganic pro­duce of trop­i­cal fruits and veg­eta­bles with am­ple fresh seafood. A pri­vate mid-is­land meal for a ro­man­tic can­dle-lit din­ner tops the list of mem­o­rable mo­ments on this fan­tas­ticn is­land re­sort.

Tar­iff Rooms start at $750 plus taxes in­clu­sive of break­fast Reser­va­tions: www.co­mo­ho­tels.com/maal­i­fushi; +960 678 0008
