Cocoa Island is the Indian Ocean outpost from COMO Hotels and Resorts, the company behind Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos. To hole up here is to discover escapism, or sweet serenity under a reliable sun. It is a special place, at one remove from the noise of modern living, where we nurture every need, attend to every detail, and soothe away the stresses which belong to another life. At Cocoa Island, indulge in nature's bequest, from dust-white sand between idle toes, to a warm blue sea that turns blush-pink with the falling light. Some guests find their own stretch of beach; others prefer to relax in privacy on their suite's hidden terrace, or lounge beside the resort's main swimming pool, melting into an empty horizon. There is a watersports centre (see Island Activities), a fully equipped Dive Centre, gym with yoga facilities, and a COMO Shambhala retreat offering a full range of treatments including massages, Ayurveda and facials. Our library features an extensive book collection; games are also available, which can be delivered to your suite. A hotel boutique sells a carefully edited selection of gifts as well as holiday necessities like hats and sun lotion. We also have a 24-hour concierge.

Cocoa Island is located in the Maldive Islands, each a perfect smudge of white. Here, in the quiet waters of the Indian Ocean the strongest winds are gentle breezes, and the highest points, leaning palm fronts. Each lagoon is a point of stillness, but the encircling reefs bristle with life. Our private island resort is found in the less developed South Male Atoll, a 30-minute speedboat ride from the international airport. On the west side lies the Kandooma Channel, considered to be one of the best dive sites in the Maldives; on the other side is a quiet reef for snorkelling flanked by a curl of rockless beach which tapers into a spit of sand. This is as long as the island, disappearing with the advance of the Maldivian tide.
Directions to Hotel
On arrival at Male international airport, you will be met by our hotel staff and transferred to the resort - a 30km journey south to Cocoa Island, locally known as Makunufushi. The speedboat transfer has a fee per adult return.
