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:   Pictures are probably the best way to convey the beauty of Cocoa Island. But beauty is something that you get in the Maldives anyway - what sets this island resort apart is the service. This was exceptional from the moment we landed in Male until they dropped us off at the airport. Every moment in between made us feel spoilt - the attention to detail is commendable. The accommodation itself is stunning and since there's only 36 of them, you never feel crowded in. Every single one has private access to the reef (hint - always have sunscreen on, even when sitting undercover. The sun reflects off the water). The food was amazing. Don't let the fact that there's only one restaurant here put you off - while there's no buffet, there's no shortage of culinary options. The Shambhala Spa menu offers some very healthy alternatives for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Review:   Idyllic. Amazing. Everything you would expect. Spent 5 days here and loved every moment - the food was spectacular, the activities amazing, the resort gorgeous. After 5 days we were ready to explore elsewhere but if you're the sort who likes to sit at resorts and relax forever, you'd like staying here longer. Absolutely worth the time it takes to get here.
