Most of Cocoa Island’s rooms are uniquely inspired by dhoni boats, the style of vessel used by local fishermen. They are adjoined by simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon. From your room, walk out on to a private terrace and slip into a warm Maldivian sea.

The view from the wide platform bed is directly out to the watery expanse. The bathrooms, a bath and shower, share the horizon views. Interiors are quietly contemporary with a nod to local rusticity in Maldivian kajan roofing.

Ufaa, meaning happy in Maldivian, is a foot-in-the-sand space with covered and uncovered seating. It flanks the resort’s infinity-edged pool, in natural wood and Kajan thatch, and is presided over by Australian chef, Daniel Johnson.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with dishes showcasing the Malabar Coast’s rich gourmet heritage as well as modern interpretations of Southeast Asian cooking. The tandoor is employed to allow for fat-free, flavour-laden grilling of meats and fish.

Dishes might include tuna tartare with pomegranate dressing, avocado, tomato and cucumber salad or whole masala spiced lobster cooked in the tandoor with lacha salad, lemon pickle and mint raita. We also offer healthy COMO Shambhala Cuisine.

Our butlers can also serve a private dinner on your terrace, or in a silent space on the sands - lit by candlelight, under a simple tent, with the water lapping at your toes.
