A private island, known locally as Makunufushi, it is located in the less developed South Malé Atoll, flanked to the west by a superb diving channel and to the east by a quiet snorkelling reef. Overhanging the water are a number of thatched Dhoni Suites in bleached wood with kajan roofs, along with a selection of one to four-bedroom villas and a number of enchanting white-finished Loft Villas featuring private sundecks and full-length windows overlooking the Indian Ocean.
The emphasis is on locally caught seafood at Ufaa Restaurant, where the chefs create delicate South Indian cuisine fused with European influences. Relax at the Faru bar by the infinity pool where bartenders produce refreshing cocktails and mocktails. Slip into the warm sea from your open deck, or venture to the scuba centre for a chance to see turtles, rays, tuna and much more. For utter rejuvenation the COMO Shambhala Retreat presents massages, yoga in the open-air pavilion, Ayurvedic treatments and a large hydrotherapy pool.
Guests at this luxurious nirvana can learn about and get involved in helping to protect the surrounding underwater environment. Through the resort's Coral Propagation Project, you can contribute to the reef's regeneration through sponsoring a frame - these encourage the growth of new coral and for the locals who build them, provides an alternative livelihood. Plant the frame in situ, view its progress online and return to check up on the coral growth on a guided snorkelling tour on your next visit.
Just 15 minutes by boat from COMO Cocoa Island lie a number of reefs where you can snorkel with whitetip and blacktip reef sharks. Though harmless to humans, their long agile bodies and lightning-quick reflexes make them a feared predator to smaller fish. A short talk on shark conservation in the local area will be given before departing for the reef. Private excursions can also be arranged by speaking to the Marine Sports Centre.
Whether you begin the day diving into the lagoon from your private deck or savouring a beach breakfast, days at COMO Cocoa Island are delightfully unhurried. Spot dolphins on a sunset cruise, join a yoga class at the holistic spa or encounter manta rays, butterfly and clownfish on a snorkelling trip.
