Offering some of the best dining in the Maldives, our menus are modern, light and steeped in the nuances of South Indian cuisine. We also offer contemporary interpretations of other Asian and Mediterranean classics, as well as old favourites like pastas and salads. Our healthful COMO Shambhala Cuisine is always popular.

The relaxed atmosphere of Ufaa, our main restaurant, belies the sophisticated flavours behind each dish. Dine casually beside the infinity pool and the sea, or eat like a castaway, with meals delivered to your private villa or to your very own private table at the beach. And Faru, our bar, is where to relax with fine wines, tasteful cocktails, healthy juices and light snacks.


Unique among restaurants in the Maldives, our talented, New Zealand-born Executive Chef Shane Avant draws inspiration from the Malabar Coast’s rich gourmet heritage and local seafood. He also creates modern interpretations of Southeast Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. The kitchen’s tandoor oven allows for fat-free, flavour-rich grilling of meats, vegetables and fish.

With our COMO Shambhala Cuisine, we present health-conscious alternatives at every meal. And three times a week Ufaa offers a set Indian, Thai and Seafood Barbecue dinner menu.

Faru bar

Faru Bar is an easy, foot-in-the-sand Maldives’ resort bar where our artful bartenders put together refreshing cocktails and mocktails. Fine wines, classic cigars and light snacks also feature, alongside some easy beats at sunset.

COMO Shambhala Retreat, our island wellness centre, is the embodiment of our philosophy for healthy living. We draw our inspiration from our surroundings, with treatment pavilions that combine natural wood, traditional Maldivian coral walls and thatched roofs. Our treatment rooms – two double and one single – have commanding views of the turquoise lagoon, while our couple’s pavilion overlooks tropical foliage. We also have one of the only hydrotherapy pools in the Maldives, where guests can relax in the heated water, with purpose-built high-pressure jets to target different areas of the body.

At this nurturing island retreat we offer Asian-based therapies, physical fitness classes and a new Pilates studio, as well as a fitness centre and airy yoga studio, where you can practice mindful exercises with views of the island. To complement the wellness experience, we have crafted a daily schedule of activities, including yoga and Pilates alongside a range of other wellness pursuits.

The therapeutic use of water can be traced back over 6,000 years. Our nervous system reacts to the pressure exerted by moving water, while warm water soothes the body, calming the nerves, heart and lungs, and releases tension in the muscles. Hydrotherapy has been effectively used in the treatment of chronic pain, as well as to aid recovery from surgery and injury.
