cocoa island by como

7 nights from £2,950 cocoa island by como maldives

This stunning private island resort offers the ultimate in stylish simplicity, total relaxation and gourmet dining, just a 30 minute speedboat journey from Male airport.  The house reefs and nearby dive sites are amongst the best in the world for diving and snorkelling.

All 33 suites and villas at Cocoa Island are built over water with direct access from your private deck to the inviting, crystal clear waters of the lagoon.  Chic and uncluttered in design, they feature all the amenities you might need, in stylish, under-stated luxury.  We love the fact that the Dhoni Suites and Dhoni Loft Suites are modelled on local Maldivian 'Dhoni' fishing boats.  After all, Cocoa Island was voted the Indian Ocean’s Leading Boutique Hotel in the World Travel Awards a couple of years ago.

Resort facilities at Cocoa Island include an infinity swimming pool, a lovely beach side bar, and a delightful restaurant with daily changing menu drawing on South Indian and Sri Lankan influences and featuring an abundance of freshly caught seafood.  You can drop into the ocean for a swim or snorkel straight from your room or off the beach, and scuba divers will no doubt make the most of the resort's dive centre.

In addition, the holistic COMO Shambhala Retreat offers a wide range of Asian-inspired spa treatments, a daily complimentary Yoga class, and an indoor hydrotherapy pool.  For those who need a workout to balance out the hours spent relaxing on the porcelain white, soft sand, there's a great little gym on the island too.

Children are welcome.  However, there are no child specific facilities and, as all of the accommodation is over water, you would need to be sensibly cautious.


7 nights from £2,950 (low season) and £3,845 (high season).  Price is per person sharing a room and includes:

  • Return scheduled flights
  • 7 nights accommodation in a Dhoni Suite including breakfast
  • Return transfers

These guide prices are subject to change and are dependent upon travel dates and availability. Please call our travel specialists to discuss your preferred dates, duration, room type, departure airport and multi-destination options.
