COCOA ISLAND RESORT| MALDIVES

see link

Cocoa Island is one of the smallest islands of the Maldives archipelago. It’s so tiny that it takes only 10 minutes to move from one end to another and two minutes across the island.

The resort is a creation of Christina Ong, the founder of the COMO Group, and hotels, such as The Halkin and The Metropolitan in London, and Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Even though this private island resort looks like a sunny turquoise piece of paradise, the truth is – apart from peace and meditation – it doesn’t have much more to offer. The accommodation consists of many luxurious suites – over-water bungalows, which resemble traditional fishing boats, named dhoni.

Essentially, the hotel is the only thing on the island. However, if you are looking for some Eden-like place for utter relaxation, look no further.

The villas are tightly fixed to the sea floor, and all of them have small staircases out the back door which lead directly to the ocean. All apartments look the same. They are positioned in line and in front of them you will find wooden walkways built above the water.

Generally, the ocean around Cocoa Island is very shallow – at low tide it comes up to your knees, and at high tide up to your thighs. Since the water is mostly very calm, without waves, and being so shallow and clean, this place is excellent for divers and water sports. But, you should be careful. Around the island there is a possibility of finding young blacktip sharks and triggerfish, which are considered dangerous species.

On Cocoa Island there is no nightlife, but at the base camp there is a bar and a restaurant where you can treat yourself with some quality wine and tasty dinner, prepared by an Italian chef. You can also entertain yourself in the COMO Shambhala Spa, at the swimming pool or practicing yoga.

So, having in mind all the things you can and cannot do at the Cocoa Island Resort, the only thing we can recommend for you is to bring a lot of money and interesting company. watch video below
