Cocoa Island is the Indian Ocean outpost from COMO Hotels and
Resorts, the company behind Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos.
To hole up here is to discover escapism, or sweet
serenity under a reliable sun. It is a special place, at one remove
from the noise of modern living, where we nurture every need,
attend to every detail, and soothe away the stresses which belong
to another life.
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.
The accommodation at Cocoa Island is laid out to
maximise privacy. For further advice on the room type best suited

At 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

At 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 – cobalt,
melting into an empty horizon.
There is a watersports centre (see Island Activities),
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.
Our library features an extensive book collection;
games are also available, which can be delivered to your suite.

well as holiday necessities like hats and sun lotion. We also
have a 24-hour concierge.

to relax in privacy, there are others who spend their time exploring
the local region – both above and underwater.

You can also go deep-sea fishing, or partake in watersports off
the beach, like windsurfing or catamaran sailing.
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.
