COMO Cocoa Island

"Utterly chic"

At COMO Cocoa Island the style is deliberately restrained – a simple yet sophisticated mix of contemporary and indigenous accents. Just 33 rooms occupy converted dhoni, traditional Maldivian fishing boats. Each of the dhoni sits offshore on the lagoon. The inside-outside space merges on the horizon-side with floor-to-ceiling glass windows opening up to a substantial deck perfect for slipping in and out of the water. The same decks ensure privacy for lounging in the sun or a quiet place for alfresco dining.

Location:A 40-minute speedboat transfer from Velana International Airport on Malé.
Perfect for:Relaxation and wellness.
Why we love it:COMO Cocoa Island is situated in the opposite direction to most other resorts and therefore lies in a quieter, undisturbed area.

Food & Drink

The resort’s in-room facilities are decadent in the detail. Guests can choose between air-conditioning or overhead ceiling fans. Beds are draped in the finest Italian linen. Other features include flat-screen plasma televisions with satellite, DVDs & CDs, a minibar, and more.

The COMO Shambhala Cuisine is considered a crucial element of the Cocoa Island experience. Designed to maximise energy and wellbeing with the use of organic foods, these meals pair perfectly with the spa treatments for a holistic retreat. The wellness themes continue at the Shambhala Retreat where there is an open-air pavilion for yoga practice on the sunrise side of the island. In addition, guests will find four treatment rooms, steam facilities, and a hydrotherapy pool.

The house reefs, which encircle Cocoa Island, delineates a glassy-clear lagoon rich with sea life. It is a warm, tropical sea without dangerous currents, making Cocoa Island an ideal choice for families with young children.

The style and design of our 33 overwater suites and villas are like that of no other luxury resort in the Maldives. Uniquely inspired by dhoni boats—the gently curving wooden vessels used by local fishermen—COMO Cocoa Island’s rooms arc out from the island itself. Simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon connect them, forming a sinuous boardwalk pathway.
