Cocoa Island, Maldives

COMO Cocoa Island, Maldives

In December 2002, COMO Hotels and Resorts opened its second private island resort, in the Maldives. Called COMO Cocoa Island, this landmark opening brought COMO’s vision of privacy and stylish beach living to the Indian Ocean.

COMO Cocoa Island Maldives, known locally as Makunufushi, is located among South Malé’s coral atolls. Importantly, guests don’t need seaplanes to access the island; it’s just a 40-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport on Malé (the main island). In addition, COMO Cocoa Island Maldives is located in the opposite direction to the majority of resorts (concentrated in the North Malé atoll) and occupies a quieter, undisturbed area.

Cocoa Island by COMO is an intimate private Maldives island resort with 33 overwater suites allowing you to slip right into the turquoise lagoon to explore an exceptional house reef. Encircled with powder white sand, the carefree, understated luxury experience includes holistic wellness treatments at COMO Shambhala Retreat, South Indian-influenced cuisine and world-class diving.
