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.

7월 말 신혼여행으로 다녀왔습니다^^ 첫 몰디브 여행이라 비교대상은 없지만 소통이 굉장히 잘되는 리조트였어요. 떠나기 한 달 전부터 메일로 이것저것 조율하는 과정이 매우 신속하고 신경을 많이 써준다는 느낌을 받았습니다. 밤 10시 도착 비행기라 1박을 시내 호텔에서 했는데, 가능한 한 일찍 리조트에 들어가고 싶다고 요청하니 그 호텔에 미리 연락해서 저희 부부가 몇시에 체크아웃해야하는지를 얘기해놓았더라구요. 그래서 아침 8시반에 공항에서 리조트직원을 만나 스피드보트 타고 출발했습니다ㅎㅎ 리조트 직원 만나는 순간부터 천국이에요!! 모든 짐과 캐리어로부터 자유로워집니다ㅎㅎ 나중에 떠날 때도 리조트 직원이 공항에서 끝까지 에스코트해주시는데 감동입니다.. 검색대도 같이 통과하고 출입금지 구역 직전까지 캐리어를 올렸다내렸다 다 해주시더라구요. 아무튼 몰디브는 기대했던대로 아름다웠습니다. 우기라 걱정했는데, 비바람 몰아치던 첫날을 빼고는 흐린 날, 햇빛 쨍쨍한 날 다 경험하고 왔습니다. 날씨는 덥고 미치도록 습한 서울보다는 훨씬 다닐만했어요~ 모기있을까봐 벌레퇴치제도 챙겨갔는데 한번도 안썼어요ㅎㅎ 모기가 아예 없더라구요. 대신 엄청 큰 똥파리는 진짜 많았어요. 사람을 어찌나 좋아하는지 몇몇 사진에는 똥파리도 찍혀있을 정도ㅎㅎ 다른 몰디브섬들도 그런가요?? 아침/저녁으로 연기로 소독하고 식당에는 양초를 피워주는 등 대비책은 있었습니다. 네이버 블로그 글 보니 식당이 하나밖에 없고 HB 밀플랜만 있는게 단점으로 나와있던데 저는 오히려 좋았어요~ 레스토랑에 고정메뉴 외에 매일 바뀌는 메뉴도 있어서 5박 6일 동안 안먹어본 음식 도장깨기하는 맛이 있었네요ㅋㅋ 와인(글라스 1잔), 칵테일은 17~18달러 정도인데, 세금에 서비스차지 붙고 환율까지 생각하면 술 한잔에 3만원 생각하면 될 듯 합니다. 3박은 Dhoni Loft water villa, 2박은 one bedroom water villa with pool로 예약했는데, 저희 커플이 유료 액티비티도 꽤 하고, 팁도 적절히 했더니 비싼 방을 1박 늘려줬습니다. 비싼 방은 개인 버틀러서비스가 있고 냉장고 속 무료 음료 중에 맥주가 있어서 좋았습니다ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 버틀러 덕분에 아침에는 커피가 무료라는 것도 알았네요. 첫날 저녁에 물이 4달러 차지되어있길래 아침에 음료를 아예 안시켰거든요.. 3일차에서야 알고 아침마다 라떼 맛있게 잘 마셨습니다. 할 얘기가 너무 많아서 자꾸 길어지네요ㅋㅋ 제가 생각한 코모코코아 장점입니다. - 섬이 작아서 걸어서 다 돌아다닐 수 있음 - 아름다운 sandbank 매일 아침/저녁으로 산책했어요 - 일주일 리조트 액티비티 스케쥴이 있음. 무료 액티비티도 퀄리티가 좋고 할게 많음. (해양생물학자와 함께하는 스노클링, 15분 무료 마사지 체험, 모닝 요가 등등) 유료 액티비티도 좋았습니다. 저희는 sunset fishing, shark snorkeling, diving 했습니다. *선셋피싱: 낚시한 생선 하나는 다음 날 점심 or 저녁으로 choice해서 먹을 수 있습니다. 사시미/굽기/튀김 선택할 수 있는데 사시미 굉장히 맛있었습니다. *상어 스노클링: 해양생물학자와 배타고 나가서 스노클링을 합니다. 숙소 앞 바다도 예쁜 고기들이 많았지만 멀리 나가니 확실히 더 볼게 많았어요. 귀여운 상어들 많이 봤습니다ㅎㅎ *다이빙: 생애 첫 스쿠버 체험이었어요. 좋았습니다!! 남편은 수영을 못하는데도 전혀 지장없었을 정도로 친절히 잘 알려주시고 끌어주셔요. 굉장히 프라이빗한 리조트라 레스토랑말고는 다른 투숙객을 마주칠 일이 별로 없었습니다. 직원들이 굉장히 친절하게 투숙객을 챙겨주는데, 영어를 못하거나 극 I 성향이면 힘들 것 같다는 생각을 했습니다. 식사 때마다 스몰토크를 하러 오셔요ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Staffs of como cocoa island are all very kind and they did everything they could to make our honeymoon memorable. Special thanks to Vincent, Ravi, Zara and our butler Muru. We miss you very very much Muru!

A little late writing this review . It was quite Simply Perfect. Our 5 island visit in the Maldives and 2nd of this trip and joint favourite with Six Senses . Cocoa is that small intimate perfect Maldives island with the most beautiful lagoon and sand bank , . The food was top notch and the facilities of such high quality , the best massage in a spa I have had . We had an issue with the water in the room and as soon as I mentioned it it was resolved , just wish I had mentioned earlier as we left it until the 5th day as we just didn’t want to complain or upset anyone . The highlight of our stay was the quality of the snorkelling and seeking several turtles swimming around on the reef . Thank you to everyone for making this trip a very special one and memories we will treasure forever . Hopefully one day we will get to return

Como Cocoa rightly belongs to the league of the best among the best. We just returned from a 6-night stay of 3 friends. Our biggest hope was to rest and unplug from everything and we could not have chosen a better place! Como staff is excellent at providing the experience that symbolizes Maldives for us: mesmerizing beauty of the lagoon, great reef, privacy, amazing food, incredible staff, complete serenity and relaxation. The size of the island and the way the staff relates to the guests makes you feel like you are at your friends’ villa instead of a resort. We stayed at loft water villa which was specious and comfortable for 3 people with good size deck providing shade at the heat of the day. We loved the style, set up and clean colors of the villa. The view of Como lagoon is one of the best in the Maldives! We spent hours admiring the colors and the shades of the lagoon from our villa. Snorkeling was amazing, massages are beyond excellent - a must do! Hydrotherapy pool is a great place to spend time in when the weather is not cooperating. Food and restaurant staff deserve a special recognition. Chef Kadet and his team are not just providing meals but rather culinary experiences that always exceed your expectations! Even though there is only 1 restaurant on the island, you will never notice it: the ambience of the restaurant, frequent change of menu and ability to order off menu, and, of course, the staff - will insure memorable and enjoyable meal times. Como staff is what makes Como Cocoa such a special place: their high standards, genuine desire to provide the best experience for you, their warmth, excellent service and attentiveness are hard to beat. Especial great thank you to Faisal (can’t thank you enough!), chef Kadet, restaurant staff Sithin, Anura, manager Zara. Thank you to the general manage Vincent who is creating this unique (even for Maldives) atmosphere of warmth, privacy, luxury and serenity. Great job, Como team, we can’t wait to come back!

You reach there and just when you start to be mesmerized with the view, you feel warmth in your heart with the nicest staffs who would welcome you. And, needless to say, you reach the villa already stunned by the beautiful walk towards your own villa, you go inside your villa, its breathtaking - the turquoise water of Maldives, clean luxury villa with all amazing amenities, it's incredible. Then, you get a personalized letter from the manager on your name, you then truly feel welcomed and feel like Como Cocoa team wholeheartedly wants you to have the best time of your life. Then you go to the restaurant and staffs welcome you greet you in nicest possible way with your own name. Yesss, during whole stay of 3 days, it felt so personal when you keep hearing your name. Muru who attended us mainly during our meals, was extremely warm, nice and made us feel truly special, cared and looked after. There are really good options of breakfast for those who are vegetarian or vegan with many delicious healthier choices. Their Menu for the breakfast always have good option for vegetarian and vegan and it is mentioned in the Menu too. Our absolute favorite was Dosa and Maldivian Curry with Roshi. Room Service would come twice a day to make sure if anything is needed and always offer to clean the room or if we need anything. That was really nice too. There are many activities to do in the Island - Snorkeling is what I did everyday, sometime few times a day, jumping out from your villa to do snorkeling was amazing. I saw turtles, Sting Rays and many colorful fishes. Its really beautiful. First day we went Snorkeling with our guide Raya and she actually saw few waste around the sea and collected it back. There is also sea grass conservation area in the Island and Resort seems to actively care and work on environment preservation and be mindful in their approach. At the end being in the Hydrotherapy pool was extremely rejuvenating. I highly recommend doing it. Walking in the white sand bank or lying on the various hammocks and swings reading book or just watching trees and skies hearing sound of ocean, all of it is a relaxing experience. I also Did few works when I was there and took few video calls, internet was good everywhere. So, if you have some work to do in between your stay, it would not be the issue at all. Manger of the Resort Vincent was really warm too and he came to drop us off to the boat personally and whenever we would come across him during the stay, he always made sure if everything is alright with us. It was also really nice. I ended up writing really long review but this place definitely deserves all the accolades. My first time in Maldives has been amazing because of Como Cocoa and I can't wait to come back in the future. :) Thank you so much once again. Truly grateful for the most amazing time in Como Cocoa. :)

we traveled as a couple and have shortlisted resorts that are accessible by speedboat (not seaplane) , we had a number of options but we finally went with Como based on the reviews and im so glad we did this probably is the best hotel we have stayed at ever ;from the unbelievable food (variety , taste, portions) to how private the stay feels (you rarely bump into people) , to the incredible staff that work here who you feel are very genuine in making sure you have a great stay To Vincent who made sure we were well taken care of , Muru who attended to our villa and is an absolute gem magically popping up whenever is needed to the brilliant marine team that guided us through i say thank you !

All I can really say is: WOW. This was my second trip to the Maldives and my adult daughter’s second. We booked eight nights at Como Cocoa Island, splitting our stay between four nights in the entry-level dhoni water villa and four nights in the one-bedroom with pool. This island really hit the ball out of the park for natural beauty. Can you see local islands, including the local prison? Yep. You sure can. Is there some boat traffic? Yep. There is. I actually enjoyed watching the boats motor by and it’s not like it was a California freeway. The local islands are a little less scenic, and since we were there over Eid, they were very occasionally cheerfully loud—it’s the first time I’ve snorkeled and been able to hear house music with my head underwater, but it was also the first time I got to see a really nice fireworks display from my overwater bungalow (so much nicer than lugging the lawn chairs to a park and then getting stuck in a 100-car traffic jam leaving). Other than the minimal amount of Eid noise, it was super quiet, which is exactly the way we prefer it. The sandbank is even more spectacular in person than it is in the pictures. We walked up and down it several times a day. The sand is powdery soft, there are some interesting shells and lots of teeny crabs, and there’s something magical about the end where the tiny waves are breaking from left and right. We could also easily go around the island at an amble in 15 minutes, although it invariably took 30+ because we’d stop to look at the herons, the baby sharks, and the stingrays. The level of service and care at Como Cocoa is unparalleled in my experience. We absolutely loved the size of the resort (around 33 villas and all of them overwater), and the small number of bungalows seems to mean everyone knows your name. As introverts, this was occasionally a little startling (there is nothing like wandering without your glasses up the beach with an armful of snorkel gear and having three guys working on a catamaran turn around, wave, and wish you a good trip by name to set off the introvert “help, hide!” radar lol), but it made for a very warm, comfortable experience. Our very first night as we were sitting, completely jetlagged and fighting to stay awake at the dinner table, someone stopped by to ask “if there was anything he could do to make our stay better.” In my experience, this is usually a bit of an empty phrase and my cue to say “Everything is great! Thanks!”, but I was exhausted and had just realized that I’d left my Kindle on the plane in Male. Ergo, super sad me blurted out a ridiculous request to try and retrieve my Kindle. Honestly, I didn’t expect to ever see it again. Wissam and his team, however, made some calls and then, lo and behold, my missing Kindle arrived on the boat the very next day. I cannot begin to say how much I appreciated this. There were lots of smaller moments where we felt truly looked after and that the service was deeply personalized—the minibar magically adjusted itself to reflect what we drank, Fanny was happy to have the chef make us half-portions so that we didn’t waste food, the fruit bowl in the room magically started including all the exotic-to-me fruits that I fell in love with at breakfast. The snorkeling is excellent. The bulk of my snorkeling experience is in French Polynesia, so I’m fairly picky about my snorkeling. I also prefer an easy entry from shore, minimal currents, and to remain somewhat close to the shore. Because it was July, there was occasional rain and some chop, but there were several hours each day when visibility was outstanding and the water flat and calm. You can go in off the jetty by the overwaters to snorkel the drop off there, and despite the resort rating it for non-novice snorkelers, I found it quite straightforward as long as I picked a calm period. It’s a drop off with some nice corals and excellent “fish soup;” there were turtles and sharks each time I snorkeled it. I also snorkeled the drop off that runs from the pool up to the end of the sandbar multiple times. This was an even easier snorkel (I could snorkel either direction with seemingly no current) and a turtle was always obligingly present. There were schools of sweet lips and other fish to swim with as well. I also went out with the dive shop to snorkel multiple times and there are some nearby sites with excellent table top corals that are truly spectacular. The dive shop also lent gear (short fins, a ScubaPro snorkel, a carry bag) for the duration of my stay and the quality of the snorkel gear was excellent and far better than I’ve encountered at any resort. Food… Amazing. We had breakfast and dinner included in our stay. There is only one restaurant, but they let you order off the lunch menu at dinner if you want, plus the menu changed in part each night. There were also set meal nights that you could choose to partake in—Fanny arranged for us to do an off-menu Indonesian set dinner one night that ended with sweet potato dumplings in coconut milk and durian fruit ice cream! The breakfast menu was the best I’ve ever seen—pancakes/french toast/waffles with mascarpone and fresh fruit, frozen acai bowls, avocado toast… plus a mini-buffet with fresh pastries, juices, yogurts, and fruit. They also included the bottled water and coffee drinks with the breakfast, which was unexpected but always welcome. I had expected those to be chargeable. Likewise, we were able to order room service for dinner and the only extra charge was a $10 tray charge. The rooms… we actually have no idea what the entry-level dhoni villa looks like haha. They upgraded us to a dhoni loft water villa for those four nights and it was spectacular. We were one villa from the end (829) and loved the end-of-pontoon location. Because of the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, you get so much light in the room. The decor is very modern-farmhouse-meets-Maldivian-villa and we really enjoyed it. And then we switched for our last four nights to the one-bedroom with pool and… wow. The transfer was seamless—they told us what time to be ready, the butler (Fanny) and a porter showed up, and we were switched in 15 minutes (it would have been 5 lol but Fanny is a talker). We got to keep our excellent housekeeper too (Shiyam). The pool villas are truly, truly spectacular. We were in 1002, which is not typically the recommended villa on TripAdvisor, but it had amazing horizon views and the view of Como’s island from the bedroom was glorious. There were always baby sharks and stingrays swimming around the villa. There is seagrass; it did not bother us. On our last day, our international flight left Male at 11pm, so they moved us to a loft water villa until 7:30pm (our airport transfer left at 8pm, which was absolutely perfect). Because of the wooden privacy walls and the more middle-of-pontoon location, this room category felt a little less private and airy than our other two rooms, but we are still happily incredulous that the hotel moved us to such a nice room and didn’t just tell us to sit on the beach for eight hours. People… everyone at the resort was lovely. Luca at the dive shop arranged boat shares, Vincent the resort manager had managed one of my all-time favorite Bora Bora properties, Shiyam our housekeeper did an amazing job keeping us tidy and always had a smile no matter how much sand we’d tracked in, Wissam was the very much appreciated king of logistics, and Fanny our butler and ever-constant waitress in the restaurant managed to be insanely efficient while still being one of the friendliest, most joyful people I’ve ever met (her daughter Deepa is too darling and unfortunately for Fanny she reminded me of a dear friend, so I’m afraid I chattered her ear off). And then there are all the semi-invisible people… someone ran out and handed us cold, bottled water when we sat in front of the pool on the beach and there were blue coolers beneath the palapas near the sandbank with cold, bottled water. Como Cocoa Island is a truly special place—it now vies for our best ever vacation (and only loses out on top billing because flying to the Maldives from the United States takes a very, very long time). We look forward to returning in the nearer future.

Highly, highly recommended. There wasn't a single thing that I would have changed about this vacation, the resort, the island. It was truly epic. It was my first time staying at a COMO hotel and I am now a huge fan. It was perfect in so many ways. It wasn't overdone. It was so chill. The staff were kind and truly wonderful. You have your own little "boat" on the sea and it's simple yet elegant. Like a dream. A local stingray visited us on our dock in the morning to make it even more magical. The diving was the best I've ever experienced and my husband and I have dived all over the world. The coral reefs were spectacular and each dive was truly epic. The bar was lovely with board games and the bartender pours a mean Aperol Spritz and Margarita. The FOOD.... omg ... the food is healthy and delicious and just so good. So many good-for-you but totally yummy options. I lost weight on this vacation and I ate like a queen. Fitness and Massage -- Jaicob runs an incredible program and is so well versed in his craft. He bases his practice on science. His massages are the best in the world. This place is truly magical. We can't wait to return.

There are not enough words to explain this visit! I could cry just thinking about our stay, I did cry before we even left. My husband and I have traveled a lot, but there has been no comparison to our stay here. From the minute we got our feet on the grounds to the minute we left, we were treated like we were the only ones on the island, even though we were not. Everyone knew your name, everyone came up to us and said hi every day, there is no such thing as bad service here at all!!! To make this trip even more special,it was me and my husband wedding. I cannot express enough how every staff member cared so much about our day. We were not sure how the weather was going to be, but my husband and I did not care at this point because we were clearly on the most beautiful island ever. Every staff member expressed their concerns about the weather and they even had alternative plans in case. It turned out to be the best weather day yet! I felt like they were our temporary family. The ceremony and setting were breathtaking! We did not have our family come, but we did have our Como Cocoa family there. I don't think we will ever receive such care and hospitality as we did. We are from the USA and the trip was anything but close, but it was worth every minute of jetlag. The food was superb and our hut, well I can't even find the words to explain the beauty of it. We want to thank EVERYONE, EVERYONE- we felt like we were on a Fantasy Island that you only see on TV. A huge THANK YOU to Nazeem, our butler. Literally, he thought of everything to make our stay better. He knew our itinerary and we did not have to worry about anything, he just told us where to go and when. He will hold a special place in our hearts. I had the best Marguerita in my life there! Dolphin/Sunset Cruise with Kaia was breathtaking! And to all of those who made our wedding perfect, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!!! there was absolutely nothing that I would change about our stay, except I wish it was longer. A huge thank you to our photographer and my hair and make-up artist who came from Male just for our wedding-- an amazing job also! Thank you ,thank you, thank you Como Cocoa Island- our home away from home!

My wife and I had the most comfortable trip to Cocoa Island and the staff at COMO Resorts took wonderful care of us. Can't wait to schedule our return trip. The diving was amazing and so close to the island we did not waste lots of time on boat trips to and from.
