Discover the calming spirit

Encircled with powder white sand, it is the carefree, understated luxury experience


COMO Cocoa Island is an intimate private Maldives island resort with overwater suites allowing you to slip right into the turquoise lagoon to explore an exceptional house reef. Encircled with powder white sand, the carefree, understated luxury experience includes holistic wellness treatments at COMO Shambhala Retreat, South Indian-influenced cuisine and world-class diving.

Uniquely inspired by Dhoni boats—the gently curving wooden vessels used by local fishermen—COMO Cocoa Island’s rooms arc out from the island itself. Simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon connect them, forming an overwater boardwalk pathway.
