COMO Cocoa Island is an understated private island resort in the Maldives, with 34 overwater villas allowing you to slip from your balcony into the turquoise lagoon to explore the sealife-rich house reef. We promise what few luxury Maldivian resorts can truly provide: peacefulness, privacy and the opportunity to do very little – very little, that is, aside from stroll on silk-soft sand, snorkel in a world of colorful marine life and simply relax, whether that’s on a massage table or on a daybed staring out at the hypnotic azure ocean.
From its personalised service and sophisticated cuisine to its distinctive design, authentic culture and calming spa, our Maldives luxury resort works hard to tailor the experience to your needs. We can orchestrate customised cruises to neighbouring islands and beaches; plan private dinners at secluded locations; arrange yoga, diving or snorkelling; and create adventures for families travelling together.
COMO Cocoa Island, known locally as Makunufushi, is located among South Malé’s coral atolls. Importantly, guests do not need seaplanes to access the island; it is just a 40-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport on Malé (the main island).
Dhoni Water Villa
Our split-level Dhoni Water Villas stand out for their unusual design: shaped like a traditional Maldivian ‘dhoni’ fishing boat, they make you feel like you’re floating on the ocean. The generous living room is a calming space to relax, while the overwater private terrace has a staircase that leads to the lagoon’s warm waters
Dhoni Loft Water Villa
Shaped like a traditional ‘dhoni’ fishing boat, our Dhoni Loft Water Villas have an expansive lower level living area and a master bedroom on the mezzanine, making them great for families. The design is about bringing the outside space in, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water, and a private terrace touching the ocean.
Loft Water Villas
In these villas, the horizon feels like it extends forever as you look out from your private sundeck or watch the ocean roll past the floor-to-ceiling windows. The elevated loft features a king-sized en suite master bedroom, while the lower deck’s large and airy sitting area doubles up as a sleeping space for families. There is also a secluded outdoor rain shower with steps directly into the ocean.
One Bedroom Water Villa with Pool
These light-filled villas sit on their own secluded jetty, each with a private entrance deck, surrounded by the aquamarine ocean. Outside, there’s a new private pool and a balcony with a daybed, where you can relax as the sun rises and sets on the ocean. Inside, the spacious living area with floor-to-ceiling windows provides plenty of space to unwind.
Two Bedroom COMO Sunrise Villa
Arranged with two separate wings, both featuring an en suite bedroom and a private terrace directly above the ocean. The wings are connected by the living and dining areas, with balconies on either side that let you step directly off the deck into the turquoise lagoon. There’s also a secluded deck, with a new private pool that almost touches the edge of the ocean.
Three Bedroom Como Sunset Villa
Our new Three-Bedroom COMO Sunset Villa features two villas connected by a wooden walkway (previous Cocoa Water Villa with Pool and COMO Water Villa). Ideal for families travelling together while keeping the luxury of independent space: a wooden walkway connects the spaces, but can also be closed off for privacy in either villa. The three-bedroom COMO Sunset Villa can accommodate six adults with three children up to eight adults with one child.
Offering some of the best dining in the Maldives, our menus are modern, light and steeped in the nuances of South Indian cuisine. We also offer contemportary interpretations of other Asian and Mediterranean classics, as well as old favourites like pastas and salads. Our healthful COMO Shambhala Cuisine is always popular.
COMO Shambhala Cuisine is a unique nutritional concept that incorporates organic ingredients rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals while still delivering on flavor. Food is raw, steamed or grilled for maximum health benefits. Chefs also make ample use of the tandoor, a type of Indian oven that allows for the fat-free cooking of meats and fish whilst introducing a wonderful charcoal flavor. COMO Shambhala Cuisine is served at Ufaa and is also available via in-room dining.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with flexible dining to suit guests’ preferences. Cuisine features European dishes in addition to a blend of Indian and Mediterranean traditions with an emphasis on locally caught seafood, fresh produce and COMO Shambhala healthful eating options.
COMO Cocoa Island offers a range of dining options at both our open-sided Ufaa restaurant and our foot-in-the-sand Faru Bar. For those who want a little extra privacy – whether a romantic meal for two or an intimate gathering with friends and family – our private dining experiences provide the seclusion you’re looking for, in dramatic spots around the island.
Faru Bar is an easy-going, foot-in-the-sand resort bar where our inventive bartenders put together refreshing cocktails (and mocktails). Fine wines, classic cigars and light snacks also feature, alongside some easy beats at sunset. Faru Bar is open from 10am until late, adjacent to the infinity pool and leading directly to the beach.
In Room Dining
In-room dining at COMO Cocoa Island includes salads, pastas and refreshing juices and is available from 7am until 11pm daily.
