EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPES CLIENTS SAY

A huge thanks to your team for organising the most beautiful and relaxing holiday I have ever had. I came to you so very confused about where we should go and you did the most wonderful job matching the islands perfectly to what we wanted.

The two weeks we spent at Huvafen Fushi and Cocoa Island were divine. Everything ran so smoothly and you had organised everything down to my spa appointments.

Sheridan Turner, Sydney Australia

Hi Jodie, a quick note to say that you made my wife so happy with the holiday you planned for us recently to the Maldives. The two weeks were amazing and we didn't have to think about a thing, you had taken care of everything. The private sand bar picnic was quite literally one of life's highlights. Look forward to getting in touch soon for you to plan another holiday for us!

Tom Trenfield, Darling Point, Sydney

Cocoa Island was everything we hoped for and more! It was so relaxing and BEAUTIFUL! The service and food was amazing and we really enjoyed snorkelling around the Island the daily yoga sessions. The accommodation was fantastic and we didn't want to leave.

In terms of our experience with you that was also fantastic and I was so happy to come to someone who understood our travel brief from the beginning and placed us in the perfect accommodation.

Cocoa Island has the advantage of being a speedboat transfer from Male and is lucky enough to be blessed with an outstanding house reef and incredible marine life. On our last visit to Cocoa Island we saw a pod of dolphins frolic along the house reef only 25 metres from our Dhoni Suite deck.

Cocoa Island is a naturally beautiful island with perfect beaches and a stunning lagoon. While the island is not large in size, it has no land villas, leaving the island free for you to explore. It has a perfect untouched beach at one end of the island that is ideal for a heavenly walk, a romantic beach dinner or even a wedding.

Cocoa Island is a boutique resort owned by the COMO Group, who as an organisation, are focussed on luxury and healthy living with exceptional service. Cocoa Island is designed to relax you with its understated and simple luxury and beauty. It has only 33 over-water villas, creating a feeling of intimacy. The villas are designed in a Maldivian ocean theme, with natural timber and white being the feature colours.

SPA

Cocoa Island Resorts in Maldives Cocoa Island Resorts in Maldives Cocoa Island Resorts in Maldives Cocoa Island Resorts in Maldives Cocoa Island Resorts in Maldives

Must Do: The Spa is a must do in itself and we say multiple treatments would be ideal. Try the Spa designed Como Shambhala Massage or another favourite is the Hot River Stone Massage.

Cocoa Island Spa is a must for everyone to experience. It truly is amazing and has such a calming feel to it. It has only 4 treatment rooms so bookings are essential. The treatment rooms, like everything at Cocoa Island, are very natural and are made of timber and natural products.

If your treatment involves use of the outdoor bathroom, it is made of stone, shaded by overhanging frangipani trees. The Spa also has its own hydrotherapy pool and yoga pavilion perfect for a sunrise yoga session. This is the perfect spa sanctuary.

At COMO Shambhala Retreat at Cocoa Island, those seeking a spa holiday in the Maldives will discover Asian-inspired treatments, emotionally rebalancing holistic techniques, facials for restorative skincare and authentic Ayurvedic therapies.
