2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
COMO Cocoa Island has reopened on the 9th of January 2020 following a seven-month refurbishment. COMO Cocoa Island is home to 34-overwater villas inspired by local Dhoni boats, the accommodations have been recast top-to-bottom with clean-lined contemporary interiors created by Singapore-based Lekker Architects. The resort also gained an open-sided Pilates and yoga studio, which sits in an elevated position above the lagoon offering 360-degree views. A thrid of the private Island is occupied by the COMO Shambhala Retreat, the island's wellness centre, which offers Asian-based wellness therapies, nutritional advise and exercise in the resort's state-of-the-art new gym. A highlight is the hydrotherapy pool with high-pressure jets used for water-based treatments. COMO Cocoa Island is also providing activities to complement the holistic wellness offering, such as a PADI-certificate dive centre, reef diving, wreck diving, UV night snorkeling and whale shark expeditions.

We stayed at this wonderful Resort for 11 nights and from the first moment we arrived at Male 'airport until our departure the experience was excellent. The main feature of the resort is privacy and exclusivity. A special mention for the cuisine of the highest level. The island is a jewel of the Indian Ocean. A special thanks to the service in the villa and the restaurant, to the excursions and to all the staff, masterfully led by the General Manager Vincent Durier.

Everything we were looking for and more... Location: The hotel is 35-40min boat ride from Male. Something to note is that one side of the island (closer to the main resort swimming pool) is facing the transfer boat path. The other side of the island (villas 1001-1005) are facing the quiet ocean side and therefore felt more private. The pick up and transfer: We were greeted by the hotel staff at the airport exit gate. The lady has guided as to the waiting area. It took about 10min for the captain to pick us up and walk us to the boat. The speedboat was clean and comfortable and we were offered cold face towels and some cold water bottles (glass & NOT plastic). Arrival: As we arrived to the island, we were met by the hotel staff (including our most amazing Butler Nazeem) and offered fresh coconut water. From the moment we got off the boat we were in the holiday mode and knew that we will be well taken care of. Villa: During the course of our holiday we stayed at two villas: 1001 (1 - bedroom overwater pool villa) and 831 (2 bedroom overwater pool villa). Villa 1001 - we absolutely loved this villa! It was facing the quiet ocean part with very few passing boats in the far horizon. It had the most beautiful shallow lagoon with occasional sightings of manta rays or baby sharks. The villa had open plan living room + bedroom. However, you have the option to curtain off the bedroom from the living room for more privacy in case more than two guests were staying together. The villa has big windows and we loved leaving the curtains open during the night so we could enjoy the sunrise and the morning View of the ocean. Villa 831 If you are looking to add a luxury feel to your holiday villa 831 is the one to book. The villa is very spacious, with huge bedrooms and a masive living space. It also has a large private swimming pool and spacious outdoor lounge area. Butler Nazeem Nazeem is a super star! Cannot recommend him enough. He is very pleasant and kind. He was able to anticipate our needs in advance and come up with amazing suggestions to improve our experience during the stay at Como coco. I worked in a service industry for many years myself and I can surely say that Nazeem is the man to keep in your team! Restaurant: Before our stay at Como Coco we read many great reviews about the resort's restaurant. And oh my goodness they were all right. The food is to die for. Every day we tried something new and never felt disappointed with our choice. My favourite breakfast choices were waffle and dosa. My lunch favourites were soups, salads and Indian Dhal. Dinner favorites: jumbo prawns, reef fish and murgh makhani. Beach Super clean, enough space for everyone sunbathing or snorkeling. The island has a long sandbank where we loved taking long early morning walks. Spa: Last but not least important part of our holiday - spa experience. We had 2 x 90min signature massages and 1 x 90min facial. Wow! We had many massages in our life time and I can say with a lot of confidence that we had the best massage experience at como coco!!!!! It was soo good! Worth every penny! I should have booked one more before leaving the island... 😭

My wife & I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary & my 5oth birthday on the island last week ( 4days 7 3 nights package) and was really impressed with the welcome and friendliness of the hotel managers ( Vincent , Wissam, Cristian) and the nice restaurant and resort staff like Michael. The island is really good for travellers who are not looking for night life, extreme activities and are more happy with relaxed snorkelling, massages and quiet pool and beach time. They do offer island hopping or snorkelling or parasailing, kite surfing activities if you want to do more but otherwise this small island offers a really relaxed and peaceful vacation. The food was excellent and refined with the half board we got amazing healthy breakfast options and pastry , high quality & very tasteful full course dinners and Christian even gave us a free bottle of champagne and cake to celebrate my birthday & wedding anniversary, We stayed in a boat like cottage off shore which was really well designed and found the massage experience in the spa excellent with really good masseuse who gave a very relaxing 1 hour massage and also enjoyed their hydromassage pool facilities at the heated hydrotheraphy pool at the spa.

First and foremost, Cocoa Island is stunning. And the best part - it's so easy to get to from Male - a quick jaunt on a speedboat and you are in paradise. Once there, every room is an over water bungalow - exactly how you'd picture the Maldives - crystal clear water in every direction. Sunsets were breathtaking here.

The COMO Cocoa Island defies superlatives in every respect, from the moment we arrived till the Moment we left - 18 days later, the service, the facilities, the food and most of all the staff were superb in very way. We are discerning travellers and we would wholeheartedly recommend this resort to you. It is the hidden gem of the Maldives with great reviews which are well deserved. The food is amazing and truly 5 star with a world class chef (the menus change every 2 days) the management and the staff are all so friendly and happy it is difficult to single out anyone ....but special mention to Nazeem our butler who is also world class. There is a doctor on the island for just 30 villas - unbelievably! The Spa offers some of the best treatments we have ever experienced. If you want a quiet relaxing resort this is it, as despite the size of the island you don't see anyone most of the day. It is the most relaxing place we have ever been to. Also the wifi is brilliant and the wifi calls to the UK were better than we get from home! Everyone who goes wants to return and we certainly will. Stuart & Lisa Randall

I was at Cocoa Island for two days, and wish I had stayed for two weeks. As a solo traveller, I thought that I would experience some difficulties on my trip but the resort managed everything seamlessly from beginning to end. The service was fantastic and I enjoyed every single moment of my holiday. The airport transfer was efficient and comfortable and the ride was pleasant, about 30 minutes long. Vincent, Wisam and Zara went the extra mile to ensure that I was comfortable, and gave me useful tips to maximise my stay. I had wanted to learn how to dive, and Luca and Eddy made the entire process very enjoyable and not in the least bit initimidating. The people on Cocoa Island are very proud of their house reef, and rightly so - it is teeming with marine life and the corals are vividly beautiful. I managed to see turtles and eagle rays up close during my shore dive - it was a wonderful experience that I will never forget. I particularly liked the vibe and size of the island - as a small resort, everything was accessible by foot. The water villas are spacious and understated, with all the modern luxuries I enjoyed yet tropical enough to feel like the quintessential island getaway. The open deck area outside the villa was perfect for stargazing at night and the sound of breaking waves was very calming. The food at the restaurant was delicious and nourishing as well. I especially liked the resort's focus on wellness, which meant that meals generally felt clean and light (notwithstanding generous portions). The Cocoa Island staff provided some of the best service I have ever experienced. They were warm and friendly (yet unintrusive), and always seemed to know what I needed before I could even ask. I left Cocoa Island feeling more relaxed than I had been in ages, and will return the soonest chance I get.

From the moment we landed in Male, the trip was seamless. The boat transfer to the island was so easy, 30min tops. Cold water and towels were provided. When we arrived at the island, we were greeted by the friendly Cocoa Island team. Our room couldn’t have been more perfect for the 3 of us. Super spacious bathroom and living room, outdoor shower and large deck with comfy sunbeds in the back. Yummy complimentary snacks and the food was all so tasty and fresh and healthy! We especially loved their Indian dishes, but we did not have 1 bad meal. The snorkeling was a highlight too, we saw so many colorful fish and sea turtles when exploring the island reefs. The staff were all so friendly. They remembered our names, dietary restrictions, and Wisam gave us a great tip on how to find the guardian sea turtles while snorkeling. Thank you Cocoa Island team for the trip of a lifetime.

Como Cocoa Island is a wonderful resort catering to around 33 villlas. Each villa is an over water one. It is fair to say that our family holiday to Como was nothing short of heavenly - it was perfect in every way. Staff service is impeccable - the hotel is extremely well managed and customer service is at the forefront. No matter where you go, whether it is general management, restaurant staff, water sports staff , housekeeping , shop manager, spa, the service is fantastic. Second, the food is amazing. Almost every meal was second to none. The restaurant changes the menu daily so there are plenty of options. Big shout out to Saeed working in the restaurant for his wonderful hospitality. Snorkelling is brilliant - at Como you are spoiled by the proximity of the house reef and we took advantage of a sunset cruise where we managed to spot lots of dolphins. Housekeeping is super efficient. As this is a small resort with 1 restaurant with plenty of space, there is no stress about booking tables - you just turn up and a table is guaranteed. Spa - I had the Indonesian massage and I highly recommend it. I was sad to leave but can’t wait to be back.

We returned yesterday from a nine night holiday on the island. We are a family of 3 including our 14 year old son and we all completely enjoyed our time there. Very sad to leave. The restaurant on the island was excellent with frequent changes to the menu and served high quality food with the addition of occasional themed food nights if you wanted to go that route… we enjoyed a Thai food themed menu and an Indian one. The breakfasts offered a huge choice of food and all tables were indoor or outdoor as preferred. There are three house reefs on the island which are all excellent for snorkelling and we did a resort scuba dive on the reef. We particularly enjoyed the night snorkelling with ultra violet lights to give a whole different perception of the coral. The staff are all so welcoming, friendly, professional and enthusiastic about their roles. There was lots to do as well as snorkelling and diving… paddle boards and kayaks are available free of charge which our son really made use of and we arranged additional trips to see nurse sharks, whale sharks and other reefs. A brilliant holiday… can’t recommend the island highly enough. Bev x
