COMO Cocoa Island

Explore COMO Cocoa Island, a resort built amidst crystal clear waters and powdery beaches. Situated on its own island, Cocoa Island has 34 overwater suites modeled after traditional dhoni boats, the gently-curving, wooden vessels used by local fishermen. Simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon connect the suites to the hotel’s facilities. Each room has its own private terrace, allowing guests to effortlessly slip from the bedroom straight into the warm turquoise sea. The resort offers a truly luxury experience with a highly customized level of service. Dining options include the luxurious Ufaa, which serves cuisine inspired by the foods of south India’s Malabar Coast; COMO Shambhala, which features fresh, organic ingredients and an authentic, Indian-style tandoor oven; and in-villa and beachside dining. Guests can indulge in holistic wellness treatments and explore world-class diving sites. COMO Cocoa Island is a 40-minute speedboat ride from the international airport at Male.

Why We Love This Hotel

Location: The island on which Cocoa Island Resort is based is locally-known as Makunufushi, and is part of south Male’s coral atolls. The resort also offers guests a collection service via speedboat from the international airport.

History: The government’s efforts to monitor tourism to the islands of the Maldives and as a result, the luxury resorts have restored their sense of exclusivity of late, and the coral reefs have flourished.

Service: Here at Cocoa Island, they take their service seriously with all staff trained to the highest standard, providing energetic, enthusiastic and incredible attention to detail. If one is lucky enough to stay in a COMO villa, they’ll enjoy private butler service.
