Cocoa Island is the Indian Ocean outpost from COMO Hotels and Resorts. With bristling reef life and long stretches of white sand beach, Cocoa Island is an indulgence not to be missed.

Kick back and relax on your sundeck, toes dipped into the island's peaceful lagoon. For those who want to do more, Cocoa Island offers an active island life. From first-time divers to Yoga devotees, from keen sailors to idle snorkellers – we've got the equipment, knowledge and expertise for a memorable stay.

The diving is exceptional, with our own team ready to instruct and guide. Explore our online Travel Planner to discover the full range of activities we have on offer, including deep-sea fishing, watersports, beach drop-offs and private full-day fishing charters.

The Maldives are made up of tiny dots strung out like turquoise ink spots. Many summits sit just below the surface of the water. The coral reefs are exceptional, creating a world-class diving destination. Like Cocoa Island, most resorts occupy their own private island.

The government has sensibly controlled tourism development. Outside the capital, Malé, where the international airport is located, there's no traffic. The only thing you might hear is the sound of fishermen calling to each other on the sea.

Cocoa Island, known locally as Makunufushi, is located among South Malé's coral atolls.

Our island is long and thin with sand snaking out into a perfect spit that disappears with the evening tide. The first thing to strike you on arrival is the welcome of palms, hibiscus and Kadjan/Coconut Thatching while the house reef, which encircles Cocoa, delineates a gin-clear lagoon.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   This place is absolutely stunning. 45 min speedboat from the airport. One of the smallest island resorts, gatorade blue, transparent water with small reef sharks, sting rays and manta rays right by the beach! What a sight! Spent 4 days, was just perfect. It only has 33 rooms.. Villas only in fact, so not crowded even at peak season I suppose. Snorkel and swim right in the 'backyard' of your villa, affordable snorkeling trips about 15 mins out by boat where you can see turtles and others, or complimentary guided snorkeling just in the house reef. Free use of kayak, stand up paddle and snorkeling gear. Just one bar and restaurant with great cocktails, food, wide choice of wine.. No fuss or pretention. Prices are okay.. Not cheap but not over the top. USD 15++ cocktails, 35 and above++ mains. Free morning and afternoon yoga sessions. And several other complimentary activities. Staff was very attentive and nice. 630pm check out without us having to ask... Maybe this is typical Maldives given the odd flight times but was a very pleasant convenience. Speedboat transfers to and from the airport are arranged without having to ask. A very relaxing and beautiful holiday!

Review:   Just had an amazing reunion with family in como cocoa island.5 stars aren't enough for this place. We stayed at the sunset villa which is way beyond our expectation. Every single staff is nice but shout-out to our butler - Binoy, who was definitely one of the highlight during our stay, and Jen-jen at the sports center who's super caring and professional, we were extremely lucky to have her going to the turtle snorkeling trip. I'll be back !!!
