Overview

This pristine, secluded white sand beach island oozes bare foot laid back luxury. COMO Cocoa Island has been voted by Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Awards 2015 one of the 'Top 25 Hotels in the World' for good reason. Get away from it all on this private island surrounded by superb undisturbed diving channels and snorkelling reefs. When you are not busy enjoying the abundant marine life you can indulge yourself at the COMO Shambhala Spa or find your zen in the open-air yoga pavilion with 360 degree views. In the evenings enjoy sundowner cocktails and mocktails followed by delicious locally caught seafood with South Indian flavours. 

When to go

Maldives has a consistent temperature all year round. There are 2 distinct seasons. December to April is the high season. Rain is more likely to occur between May to November. However this is the best time to visit if you are a keen diver.
