Cocoa Island Resort
Imagine barefoot luxury at Cocoa Island!
Cocoa Island means an enchanting and deserted beach, the most famous underwater world, a jungle full of natural beauty, lots of sunshine, delicious organic food, and a panorama of crystal blue lagoons as far as your eyes can reach.
Cocoa Island Resort offers excursions, yoga classes, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving, dolphin and sunset cruises, cooking classes, the best spa treatments, and romantic picnics on deserted islands. The staff from Cocoa Island is warm, personally involved and knows you by your first name.
For the diving enthusiasts among us, Cocoa Island is the absolute ultimate. The reefs surrounding the Cocoa Island Resort are famous for their strong currents, causing a huge concentration of large fish underwater. You dive in small groups with experienced diving instructors, and every dive you will be surprised by new marine fauna such as friendly sharks, giant turtles, Napoleon fish, stingrays and even whales from time to time. We were so excited that we could snorkel with eight whales. One of the most extraordinary experiences ever!
The villas are inspired by dhoni boats, the style of the boats used by local fishermen. They are all situated over water, connected by wooden walkways, and built above the shallow lagoon. You can choose from a Dhoni Suite to the most luxurious and large Como Villa. The overwater bungalows have private terraces hanging over the Indian Ocean with a huge lounge bed overlooking the beautiful expanse of azure water. The interior is minimalistic, contemporary decorated with a touch of Maldivian style.
The kitchen of the Ufaa Restaurant is modern, bright and inspired by South Indian and Sri Lankan spices. The fabulous restaurant Ufaa and the Faru Bar are located on the beach next to the pool. In Faru you can order the finest wines and taste the best cocktails. The restaurant uses organic vegetables and the food is absolutely a delight for your senses. We can say without any doubt that the food we tasted at Cocoa Island was by far the best we’ve ever eaten. If you like excellent food, forget all other options and book a stay at Cocoa Island Resort.
If you are looking for inner peace and physical wellbeing, then you are also in the right place at Cocoa Island Resort. There is an open-air pavilion overlooking the sea where yoga – and meditation classes are taught by a real Indian yogi. To recapture the balance between body and soul, Cocoa Island offers several wellness treatments, and there is a large indoor pool with hydrotherapy.
For couples, honeymooners and incurable romantics, Cocoa Island is heaven on earth. A better place to fully relax doesn’t exist, and for the ‘bare feet in the sand’ feeling, Cocoa Island is the ultimate destination.
