YEAR BUILT - 2002 YEAR REMODELED - 2005 ADDITIONAL PROPERTY DESCRIPTION - ESCAPE FROM THE NOISE AND HECTIC PACE OF MODERN LIVING AT THE TRANQUIL COCOA
Cocoa Island offers restful, serene respite with a simplicity that will seduce lovers of intimate island hideaways .
This jewel-like private island Resort
lies among South Male's coral atolls, a 35-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport .
The island is long and thin - about 350 metres long . Natural landscaping has not been interfered with, featuring palms, wild sea grapes, hibiscus and alang-alang .
The house reef, which encircles Cocoa Island, delineates a gin-clear lagoon that's rich with sealife, including ray and baby sharks .
The resort' style is deliberately restrained, a simple yet sophisticated mix of the contemporary and indigenous . The majority of rooms are inspired by 'dhoni' boats, as used by Maldivian fishermen .
Each of the 33 rooms - which include eight Dhoni Suites, nine Dhoni Loft Suites and ten Loft Villas - sit offshore on the southern side of the Cocoa, overhanging the lagoon . They are reached by planked walkways .
Natural materials are carried through to the clean-lined, airy interiors, with high raftered ceilings and glossy teak flooring .
The inside/outside space merges on the horizon-side, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows opening up to a substantial private deck for slipping in and out of the water .
As with all COMO Hotel
s and Resorts, cuisine is considered a crucial element of the guest experience .
At the Ufaa restaurant, menus display a rigorous reliance on well sourced, seasonal ingredients, and the flavours of fresh produce are finished off with light-handed, contemporary flourishes .
Guests can also benefit from COMO Shambhala cuisine, designed to maximise energy and wellbeing .
The COMO Shambhala Retreat, designed for guests seeking greater health through yoga and related treatments, offers a range of Asian-inspired therapies including Reflexology and Ayurveda .
