Como Cocoa Island: find inner peace in the Maldives

Welcome to a place of total relaxation…. Here’s a little nugget from the COMO group. The Maldives is undoubtedly an exceptional destination , ideal for out-of-the-ordinary experiences. These heavenly islets lost in the heart of turquoise-blue lagoons are breathtaking. But when wellness is also part of the resort, shaped by the experts and enthusiasts of the COMO Group, your stay takes on a whole new dimension.

“The blue of the sky is not the blue of the sea…”

It’s hard not to dive into these hypnotic shades of blue. The Como Cocoa Island luxury resort is perfectly integrated into its natural Maldivian environment. Sober, neutral tones, wooden bungalows with slightly curved shapes inspired by “dhoni”, the local fishing boats. Visit pools plunge into the lagoonThe combination of New Zealand pine and thatched roofs, gleaming teak floors and high herringbone ceilings blurs the line between what comes from nature and what is part of the hotel!

The combination of white, blue and natural tones, and the resort’s open, flowing spaces, will let you experience the Maldives as you’ve always dreamed of them.

The Makunufushi atoll on which the resort is located is only 40 minutes by boat from Malé airport, so paradise is just around the corner!

Inspired by fishermen’s huts

Just 33 suites and villas, linked by a wooden pontoon bridge over the lagoon, welcome you to paradise.

Designed with respect for tradition, each home is unique, built in wood with thatched roofs and shiny teak floors. Raw materials play an important role in the resort’s authentic atmosphere.

The smallest villa has a surface area of 75 m². It boasts a large double bedroom, totally open to the living room, itself with direct access to the terrace above the waves. The bathroom also overlooks the lagoon. Everything is open and gives you the feeling of living with the sea breeze! The largest villas are up to 500 m² in size, with two or three bedrooms and a private pool.

The exterior really does give the impression of modest wooden huts, while the interior rivals elegance and refined sophistication to make full use of light and the environment. It’s sumptuous.

One of the only hydrotherapy pools in the Maldives

Like the rest of the resort, the Como Shambala Retreat wellness area is inspired by its surroundings, with open treatment pavilions combining natural wood, traditional Maldivian coral walls and thatched roofs. The treatment rooms – two doubles and one single – have breathtaking views over the turquoise lagoon, while the couple’s pavilion is nourished by the energies of tropical plants.

Thehydrotherapy pool is the highlight of our treatment programs. Thanks to the virtues of hot water and high-pressure jets, it offers deeper, more effective relaxation.
