Inspired by the Traditional Beauty of Maldives
Set in a lush tropical atoll in the Maldives, when you arrive at COMO COCOA ISLAND, you will feel relaxed, calm, happy and most importantly you will be astounded by the beauty of the island. A precious luxurious seclusion is what we would like to call the island. It’s not the kind of beauty that you encounter every day. Powder white sand, turquoise lagoon and underwater reefs all are what makes Cocoa Island irresistible and absolutely breathtaking. Being one of the coral-fringed islands in the beautiful Maldives, Como Cocoa Island is one of the simplest beauties in the Maldives.
The Overwater Villas at the Resort is inspired by the traditional Dhonis that are sailed by Local fishermen. Como Cocoa Island has to be one of the only resorts in the Maldives to preserve and be inspired by the traditional Maldives, long before the Maldives became the most sought-after travel destination. All 33 overwater suites have soothing white on the white interior with teak flooring to create a home-like feeling with a hint of Maldivian luxury. The rhythm of the island has definitely not forgotten when designing the villas.

Definitely loved by all yogis in the world, Como Cocoa Island naturally became our favourite place to meditate and practice yoga. The dedicated Yoga Pavilion at the resort surrounded by beautiful greenery and overlooking the shallow beach of Maldives is everything you wish for when practising yoga or even when meditating. How the island integrates the holistic practices to it’s playful and calming rhythm is quite astounding. If you’re a beginner exploring the wellness lifestyle, the guided and private yoga sessions with your yoga instructor will be the best way to begin your journey. One of the things we absolutely fell in love with was the hydrotherapy also known as aquatic therapy sessions at the island.

Nestled among the soft white beaches and crystal clear lagoons, Cocoa Island is the epitome of Barefoot, Chic, Rustic and Sophisticated yet Elegant Luxury. Once you step foot on this island, the barefoot yet elegant luxury and the simple yet laid-back ambience of the island will become a part of you. One of the things we loved the most at the resort is the Sunrise yoga sessions at the Sand Bank of the Island. Make sure to walk barefoot when you’re at the Island’s Sand Bank. Take time to connect with nature and feel the shallow water beneath your feet. Apart from the wellness activities, you can find many other local excursions at the island as well. Our favourite was definitely the diving sessions at the Island. On the eastern side of the island, the reefs are perfect for the ones who love snorkelling. The sunset cruises are also one of those things we do recommend to complete your picture-perfect vacation.
