Cocoa Island is a small, private island resort designed for those seeking an easygoing, foot-in-the-sand experience. The rich, warm waters and bountiful coral also promise some of the world’s best beaches, snorkeling and diving.
Wake up to an empty horizon from your over-water bungalow. As evening approaches, watch a tiny fishing boat ply the cobalt ocean. Cocoa Island offers indulgent therapies,Yoga, diving, gourmet cuisine and exciting excursions.
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.
Eight, split-level bedrooms have king-sized or twin beds. The spacious living area leads onto a chic private sundeck with two chaise lounges, a dining table and direct access to the lagoon.
A highlight is the sitting area with an outsize Balinese-style day bed. The bathroom is large with a double-ended tub backed by a mirrored wall.
