Mahi-Mahi Resort is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon and Splatoon 3. It takes place inside a swimming pool next to a large hotel. After ninety seconds, the water level changes, opening up additional turf and modifying the height of certain platforms.


Mahi-Mahi Resort is a series of platforms located in a squid-shaped swimming pool next to a large hotel. It features a plethora of grates and inkable surfaces of various elevations and is surrounded by water. Mahi-Mahi Resort is unique in the fact that when a round is halfway over, the water level recedes and a large section of the stage that was previously inaccessible is uncovered by the receding water. Some platforms also rise during this time. All of the floating platforms in Mahi-Mahi Resort can be found here in the center. They get lower in elevation as the water recedes. There are three high platforms in the center, providing higher points to attack from, and can be used as an easy way to quickly reach the enemy team's base at the beginning of a match. Two towers become visible once the water level lowers, providing a little more cover from attacks and a place to attack from. Side platforms can be found close to the center, surrounded by water. When the water recedes, two platforms rise, creating more vantage points and area to cover.

Ranked Battle terrain

In Ranked Battles, specifications for the terrain or placement of objects are different between the modes; these changes create new paths or new objects to take cover behind.

Splat Zones

In Splat Zones, the block in the center has been removed and a platform covers the moat and acts as the Splat Zone. Once a team's meter reaches sixty points, the water level drops, revealing the many platforms under the water's surface, creating some cover and more area to move about. A few walls have been added to provide cover and space to move and attack.

In Splatoon 3 the Splat Zone is located in the center of the map, taking most of the center. The center raised area in the middle is removed and the other raised areas now have an inkable wall to get up to. Some barriers near the center have been removed. The water level drops when the team's meter reaches 60.

Tower Control

The Tower in Mahi-Mahi Resort starts in the center of the stage, on top of a block that can only be climbed on two sides. When activated, it goes to the enemy's base around floating platforms and higher ground. The water level automatically drops at the beginning of each game.

In Splatoon 3, the Tower starts in the center, going left then straight to the opponents' raised area. It then goes right then straight to the goal. The three raised areas in the middle are removed and the ground underneath the Tower path is removed and filled with water. The water level drops once a team has passed the second checkpoint. The ground underneath the tower path is filled after the water level drops.

In Splatoon 3, checkpoints have been added:
Checkpoint Location Timer (Seconds) Progress Amount
Before After Total
1 The first checkpoint is located immediately to the left of the tower's starting location. 5 94 84 10
2 The second checkpoint is located just before the opponents' raised area.
After clearing this checkpoint, the water level drops.
6 63 51 12
3 The third checkpoint is located towards the front of the opponents' base. 4 24 16 8


The Rainmaker in Mahi-Mahi Resort starts in the center of the stage, on top of a large crate. Each goal is located in their respective team's base, on the level immediately below. A few floating platforms have been added and some boxes have been placed to aid the player carrying the Rainmaker to proceed to the goal. A row of balloons has also been extended to block Rainmaker shots. Once the Rainmaker's meter reaches forty points, the water level drops, revealing more platforms, walls and a ramp to make traveling into the enemy's base easier.

In Splatoon 3, the Rainmaker starts in the center of the stage. The center of the stage has changed drastically. Ramps have been added to the left of the Rainmaker starting position, allowing easier access to the opponents' raised area. Obstacles have been slightly changed and the raised islands at the center of the stage are removed entirely. The checkpoints are located in the opponents' raised area and the normal entrance to the opponents' base. The water level drops after clearing a checkpoint. The pedestal is located near the back of the opponents' base. The right side of the pedestal has been extended a bit and a block allowing access to one of the islands is replaced with a ramp.

Clam Blitz

The Clam baskets are located in the raised area of each team's side. The layout is similar to the Rainmaker layout. The water level drops when one team scores 40 points.

Mahi-Mahi Resort underwent a major renovation starting with version 5.1.0. The changes serve to make the stage larger and more open (though still not to the degree of its Splatoon counterpart), particularly when the water level drops.

Changes include:

  • The immediate spawn area has been pushed backward, and the platform one level down from spawn has been extended to the right
  • An Inkrail now leads out of spawn.
  • The central area is significantly wider heightwise.
  • More ground is present when the water level drops.
  • Another "island" has been added, allowing entrance to the center of the stage.
  • Grates are now present in certain areas.
  • Tall, inkable columns have been added that allow access to the tops of the raised platforms from the central area.
  • Due to the stage's increase in size, the central platform now has grate platforms on either side to prevent it from becoming inaccessible.

Version history

Version Adjustments
  • Fixed an issue in Tower Control mode where an area impassable to players would appear midair when the water level dropped.
  • Fixed an issue in Rainmaker mode where in certain locations the score count would not change as intended.
  • Fixed an issue when playing Splat Zones mode that prevented players from properly placing a Tacticooler in certain areas and prevented the player who tried to place it from being able to properly stand on the stage's terrain.
  • Changed the terrain for some modes and reduced the impact of weapons shooting from far away.
  • The terrain in Mahi-Mahi Resort has been changed in all modes.

Presumably Mahi-Mahi Resort's name.
  • The Inkling text on one of the buildings loosely resembles the words "MAHIMAHI RESORT & SPA", its full name in Japanese.
  • The surrounding buildings are similar to those at Aulani, a Disney resort and spa.
  • In Splatoon, two jellyfishes getting married are visible at the edge of the stage.
    • Later, in Splatoon 3, they are seen celebrating their child's birthday at the same spot.
  • The changing water levels gimmick is also used for the Shifty Station variant Furler in the Ashes in Splatoon 2. Mahi-Mahi Resort itself, however, is absent from the game.
  • In Splatoon 3, a jellyfish band near the stage can be heard playing What's Your Style?.
  • The shape of the pool surrounding the stage is of a squid.


This stage is named after the mahi-mahi, a surface-dwelling fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical, and subtropical waters.
