COMO Cocoa Island
To hole up at COMO Cocoa Island is to discover escapism, or sweet serenity under a reliable sun. It is a special place, at once removed from the noise of modern living, where every need is nurtured, and soothe away the stresses which belong to another life.

At COMO 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 , 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.

The 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.

The island's serenity is reflected in the clean-lined, airy interiors combining whites and blues – more Hamptons beach hut than the usual rough-rustic aesthetic favored by other Maldivian hotels. The accommodations are reached by planked overwater walkways. Ufaa, the Cheong-designed restaurant with foot-in-the-sand space, seats 60 diners in both covered and uncovered areas and flanks the resort's infinity-edged pool, in natural wood and Kajan thatch.

Location Summary
COMO 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.

This 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.
Note Bene
Particularly popular are the beach drop-offs, dolphin and sunset cruises, allowing guests to indulge in the natural solitude of empty beaches and mirror-flat horizons.
Fine Dining On Site
At COMO Cocoa Island, eat like a castaway - fresh lobster, caught locally, cooked in the Keralan style. Dine feet-in-the-sand at the main restaurant, Ufaa, beneath an alang-alang pavilion and huge Maldivian sky. Menus change daily, blending Indian and Sri Lankan traditions with an emphasis on seafood, tandoor and organic, locally-sourced produce. Spicing is used with a lightness of touch. Choice is always tantalising, promising simplicity in the tropics, and sophistication for the more demanding gourmand. There is also a hotel bar, Faru, open from 10am until midnight, serving fine wines, exotic cocktails and energising juices.
Child Programs
Children are welcome at COMO Cocoa Island, however due to its over-water accommodation children should be proficient swimmers and supervised at all times.
Pool Outdoor
25 meter infinity-edge swimming pool.
Spa Facility
Cocoa Island attends to guests' needs at a deeper level, courtesy of the COMO Shambhala Retreat. We offer healing traditions from Asia with natural therapies from the sea and earth, honed by international health consultants. It is a place where wellness is nurtured in simple wooden beach houses, aired by breezes carrying the scent of the ocean. This holistic approach is coupled with expert yoga tuition, which includes week-long retreat weeks led by world-renowned specialists. Couple with our signature health-giving cuisine, and feel the benefits of a complete return to real well-being. At COMO Shambhala, we believe in balance - of mind, body and spirit - and the inspiration of the soul, afforded by a place of beauty.
Fishing - Ocean
Deep-sea fishing
Scuba Diving
Diving in the Maldives is rated among the best in the world. Cocoa Island is located in a quiet atoll where the waters are undisturbed, ensuring extraordinary colour close to hand. We have an on-site dive centre staffed by PADI certified instructors catering to every level of experience. You can rent equipment, enrol on PADI sanctioned diving courses, visit the house reef or take part in night dives. Boat dives visit more than 20 different dive sites in the area. Our safari dives explore even further afield.
Recommended Rooms
Rooms are inspired by dhoni boats, as used by local fishermen, adjoined by simple wooden walkways built above the shallow ocean. Each is its own discreet fiefdom. From your room, walk out on to a private terrace; from your terrace, slip into a warm Maldivian sea. The view from the wide platform bed is directly out to the watery expanse. And the bathrooms, all with double sinks, a bath and shower, share the horizon views. Como Hotels and Resorts
