COMO Cocoa Island has reopened on the 9th of January 2020 following a seven-month refurbishment. COMO Cocoa Island is home to 33-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.

It was nice that the staff were kind and responded with a smile whenever we encountered each other. I had a lot of questions, and the Butler in charge answered kindly. I had a healing time in a place where the food was delicious and the sea color was really pretty

5 Stars is simply not enough for this paradise. In a stunning location, this is simply the definition of paradise. From the beautifully designed villas, stunning food, and the calming, relaxing nature of the island, it is just wonderful. However, it is the staff that make this stunning place so special. Their kindness is unparalleled, their smiles are so warming and not only will you have every need attended to, you feel like you leave with a wider family. With beautiful food, fresh local ingredients and delicious cocktails we can't recommend Cocoa enough.

There is a lot of hotel choice in the Maldives, but there is something quite unique about Cocoa Island and that’s the feeling of being somewhere with people whom love to live and work there. There is a real sense of community in the staff and as per some of the other reviews, several have been there for over a decade. Although we were first time visitors, it was clear that many people had stayed and returned time and time again and felt they had a relationship with the staff. This was really unique for a hotel we felt. By far the physical best element of the island is the snorkelling straight from your room onto one of 3 private reefs. From here we saw reef shark, sting ray and a huge array of fish, this felt like a special to have this the moment you wake up at your disposal. Cocoa island is small and has a boutique feel. If you want to escape the crowds and have your trip feel a bit more bespoke than mass tourism, cocoa is a good option for you. If you want busy evenings and endless activities or entertainment the maybe not. It does just have one restaurant and one bar, but that should not deter your choosing this hotel, the variety on the menu/menus are vast and changes everyday in some way, with the themed set menu evenings additional to this, there is no need to get bored of the food, quite the opposite. The staff and chefs are also very varied in their skill and accommodating to your needs. The food is high quality, and masterfully executed every night, we could not fault it along with the huge array of drinks options, far beyond what you would expect from a resort of this size. Some of the best cocktails we’ve had. Overall, we would echo other reviews to say don’t come at CNY or half term if you want total peace and quiet, but this isn’t a particularly family orientated place, so as long as you are out of those main seasons it should be beautifully peaceful. The 45 min transfer by boat is convenient and easy compared to waiting for a seaplane. We would highly recommend.

Such a special place - this is now my fourth visit to Cocoa Island and my mum and I absolutely love it here. Wisam and his team always look after us exceptionally well. The water villas are all so beautiful and stylish and the staff are so friendly. The diving centre is fantastic, especially Ali and Sharky! We also loved Kim, the physiotherapist at the spa. We will be back next year for sure and we highly recommend this hotel!

We have been lucky enough to stay at this resort for 10 days. Over this time I can honestly say that it was nothing less than perfection in every aspect. The room (with a pool) was impeccable as was the island and resort itself. However the main thing that I have never experienced before like this was perfection in service and the food. From the minute of waking up and going to breakfast to the supreme dinners which had a daily changing menu we tried to find fault but could not do so. Our butler, Fanny, was a genuinely beautiful person who also excels in her profession. This is what distinguishes The Como Cocoa Island from any other 5 star hotel I have stayed at. We had the tented dinner which was amazing and will never be forgotten and the best massages possible. Overall it was a once in a lifetime experience of which we hope to repeat. Thank you to all the staff involved which made it possible.
