We have stayed here twice (family of 3, 2010 and 2013). The island is tiny - all accommodations are over water - and facilities are limited. But the pleasure of staying here is endless. The rooms - we stayed in a one-bedroom villa both times - are spacious, tastefully decorated and impeccably maintained. (I would have made the outdoor shower... More

It was just a short visit to rest and relax but it was more than I expected, truly a heavenly place, wonderful staff, amazing food, excellent snorkelling. Must try hydropool, snorkelling on housereef and walk to the sandbank.

We had our yearly visit to Cocoa in May 2015 and this was the 5th time we have stayed at this wonderful resort. We stayed once again in what we like to call our other home, villa 1002, and would recommend you choose this type of accommodation if you can afford it as these villas are slightly remote from the...

We just had an amazing stay at Cocoa by Como. The island is beautiful classic and a heaven on earth. On arrival management team greeted us with fresh cold towels and drinks. Had a quick check-in, tour round island and taken to our beautiful water villa. The villa is spotlessly cleaned and serviced twice daily. Every staff here are outstanding,... More

My partner & I stayed for 2 weeks in a dhoni loft suite in march this year. There is little I can fault about the resort. The staff were truly wonderful & nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent-although I have to say by the end of 2 weeks we were looking forward to a little more variety. Drinks... More

We couldn't fault our stay at Cocoa for anything. So often 'dream' holidays or destinations are over-sold, but under deliver. Not so with Cocoa. Our Dhoni room was simple, gorgeous, not overdone. A small number of guests/rooms - it has a boutique feel to it which we really enjoyed. The island is perfect: tiny, not far by boat from Male... More

Husband & I had such a great time. It's a special place for us, best resort holiday, great service. The resort has more than 80 staff working in shifts for guests in 30-32 water villas. That means on an average, there's more than 2 staff serving guests from each villa. It is a different level of service compared to resorts... More
