    • Our Opinion

      COMO Cocoa’s recently renovated over-water villas are some of the most paradise-perfect in the Maldives.

    Reliably brilliant since its inception, COMO Cocoa Island is beautifully designed with local accents and use of natural materials giving it a warm and welcoming feel.

    Choose from Suites shaped like local Dhoni fishing boats for an authentic touch, and discover luxurious furnishings and private steps that lead right into the warm Indian Ocean.

    Recent additions include a number of Water Villas including the latest Cocoa Overwater Villa, featuring an impressive 10-metre private swimming pool with secluded terrace – for you to enjoy one of the best views of the iconic Maldivian sunset. Relaxation doesn’t come more blissful than this.

    The cuisine at COMO Cocoa Island makes full use of its ocean setting but created with an Indian/Sri Lankan twist – using the freshest ingredients such as mouth-watering tuna and lobster.

    For those that like to spend their time out on the crystal clear water – turn your hand to windsurfing or a spot of sailing, or venture below the waves for exceptional snorkelling and diving to explore the vast reef.  Or for the more adventurous try deep-sea fishing and island-hopping trips, or embark on a sunset cruise for an idyllic experience.

    In all honesty, life on COMO Cocoa Island is so laid back that you can easily forget where your shoes are and swimwear becomes your go-to outfit most days.  Sheer bliss for seclusion seekers.
