The Arrival


In a delectable fusion of Tuscan traditions against the breathtaking backdrop of the Maldives, COMO Maalifushi is set to host a gastronomic COMO Journey from December 4th to 12th, 2023. This exclusive event will be led by Chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro, the Executive Chef of COMO Castello Del Nero, COMO’s sister property in Italy. As the only luxury lifestyle resort in Thaa Atoll, COMO Maalifushi provides the ideal setting for this immersive and sensual gourmet experience.

Throughout the week, guests will have the unique opportunity to learn from and indulge in the culinary creations of Chef Di Pirro. The events include cocktail conversations, Chef Tables, and Beach Barbecue dinners, where Chef Di Pirro will share his culinary experience and ethos, infusing a unique Tuscan twist to the flavors of the sea.

A highlight of the COMO Journey is an unforgettable morning fishing excursion with Chef Di Pirro, allowing guests to catch their own fresh seafood. Following the fishing adventure, guests will be treated to a captivating cooking demonstration and a sumptuous lunch prepared by the chef himself.


Chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro’s cooking philosophy is a harmonious blend of three unique culinary backgrounds: Romagnolo by birth, Abruzzese by descent, and Tuscan by residence and adoption. With decades of culinary training and experience in prestigious establishments, Chef Di Pirro’s passion for cultures and traditions related to food and local products shines through. Under his leadership, La Torre at COMO Castello Del Nero was awarded a Michelin star. His cooking philosophy, rooted in Tuscany, emphasizes using local produce to highlight the purity, quality, and freshness of flavors for each season.
