Cocoa Island, Maldives

8 days from £2,600 for 2022 per person

Located a 40-minute speedboat journey away from Male Airport, Cocoa Island is one of our favourite properties in the Maldives. Understated and private, this barefoot luxury resort offers access to some of the best dive sites in the Maldives as well as a fantastic house reef full of sea-life ready to explore. With aquamarine shallows for those whole like to paddle along with a beautiful beachfront pool, there are also plenty of spots to cool off from the midday Maldivian sun.

With only 33 guest rooms on Cocoa Island, the resort is known for privacy and intimacy. These elegant spaces have been created from dhoni-style thatched houseboats moored along planked walkways giving you a traditional Maldivian experience with a touch of fun. With neutral décor, spacious lounges and glass walls opening onto private verandas, the rooms really are understated chic. All rooms have direct ocean access with some also having the luxury of a private plunge pool. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in all guest suites and villas.

As a member of the COMO hotel group, delightful and relaxing spa treatments are guaranteed along with exquisite standards and styles of hospitality. Six days a week the resort hosts complimentary pranayama, yoga, meditation and Pilates classes and there is also a covered hydrotherapy pool. Should you wish to keep fit whilst away, there is also a gym with weights and cardio equipment.

For those who love to be in the water, there is a Marine Sports Centre which can provide snorkelling equipment as well as snorkelling trips away from the island (including night time and UV snorkelling), windsurfing and kayaking. Fishing trips can also be organized and Cocoa Island also have their very own COMO Yacht Charter for those who wish to get away on a romantic daytrip.

Food at Cocoa Island is also an understated affair. With one fabulous restaurant, Ufaa, and one relaxed bar, Faru, you won’t need to ponder where to dine or grab a midday cocktail. The main cuisine on the island is influenced by the Mediterranean where the focus is on fresh and healthy eating options. Should you like to have a private dinner, in-room dining is available as well as private dining set-ups on the beach.

 

We can organize your stay in the Maldives as a standalone trip as well as combining with various other destinations that we offer. One of our top combinations is Sri Lanka with the Maldives, a quick 90-minute flight from Colombo. India also combines well and there are direct flights from a variety of airports including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Cochin.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
