In 2019, the resort underwent a transformative renovation as part of COMO Cocoa Island's ongoing commitment to an award-winning reputation. Under the careful eye of Singapore-based Lekker Architects, the resort was reimagined adding private pools to both the One-Bedroom Water Villas and COMO Water Villas, creating a new airy Pilates studio, adding a two-floor gym and yoga centre, and completely redesigning the interior of every villa. Each of these 34 villas – which include eight Dhoni Water Villas, nine Dhoni Loft Water Villas, ten Loft Water Villas, four One-Bedroom Water Villas with Pool, a newly-added Cocoa Water Villa (only one of its kind), and two Two-Bedroom COMO Water Villas – sit offshore on the southern side of Cocoa, overhanging the lagoon. They are reached by planked overwater walkways. Structures combine New Zealand pine with Kajan thatched roofs. Natural materials are carried through to the interiors, with high raftered ceilings and glossy teak flooring.
The island's serenity is reflected in the clean-lined, airy interiors combining whites and blues – more Hamptons beach hut than the usual rough-rustic aesthetic favored by other Maldivian hotels.
As with all COMO Hotels and Resorts, cuisine is considered a crucial element of the guest experience. The restaurant is called Ufaa, meaning 'happy' in Maldivian. The Cheong-designed, foot-in-the-sand space – seating 60 diners in both covered and uncovered areas – flanks the resort's infinity-edged pool, in natural wood and Kajan thatch. Ufaa serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. An all-day dining menu is also available.
COMO Cocoa Island has a fully equipped watersports center offering kayaking, windsurfing and catamaran sailing from the beach. There is also a comprehensive COMO Shambhala Retreat. Beyond the island, a number of excursions are available, taking guests further into this compelling archipelago of coral reefs. Guests can visit Malé, the capital of the Maldives, visiting the gold-domed Islamic Centre, the Presidential Palace, Friday Mosque and the fish and fruit market, shopping among rows of colourful little stores. Maafushi, 15 minutes away from the resort is our local island tour for guest who wants to experience local culture and colors. Fishing is also richly rewarding – COMO Cocoa Island's kitchen can prepare the catch for your lunch the following day. But it is diving for which COMO Cocoa Island has its most formidable reputation. The team of staff – all PADI instructors, who can teach courses for all levels, from beginner to specialty certifications up to Divemaster, and in English, Japanese, French and Spanish – have in-depth knowledge of local waters, the coral reefs, wrecks and seasonal highlights.
Roundtrip airport transfers (speedboat), combined with other COMO Cocoa Island guests, is available for scheduled flights only.
