Cocoa Island is a private island in the Maldives. Wrapped in white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, the resort is in close proximity to some of the best dive sites in the world. Even the house reef, which encircles Cocoa Island, delineates a gin-clear lagoon that's rich with sea-life, including ray and baby sharks. Yet it is also accessible, for the resort is located in South Male's coral atolls, a 35-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport. The island is long and thin—about 350 meters long. The tranquil setting, with the island fringed in wild sea grapes, hibiscus and palms, is enhanced by the understated elegance of Cocoa Island's rooms, which resemble local dhoni fishing boats and feature direct access to the shallow lagoon. There are 30 suites, two two-bedroom villas and four one-bedroom villas, each with foot-in-the-sea sun decks. Their clean-lined, white interiors and natural materials showcase the understated elegance of Cocoa Island's design with flowing white muslin around sleeping areas. Ufaa, the resort's restaurant, serves fresh local produce and seafood cooked in the Keralan style, while Faru bar overlooks the pristine infinity-edge pool. Cocoa Island's spa, COMO Shambhala Retreat, offers rebalancing treatments, including Ayurveda, massages and facials.
