9.5 out of 10

This wonderful place was an early Maldivian resort, and since its lavish refit at the hands of COMO, Cocoa Island has consistently impressed with its style and service. Indeed, this is one of the very few resorts that manages to get everything so right with such little fuss: a combination of perfect beaches, beautiful rooms, excellent food and superb staff.

First of all, the small island has no rooms on it at all – they’re all built over water in a shape that mirrors that of the island itself. And what rooms they are – built in the shape of traditional Maldivian dhoni boats – all clean lines, white cotton and dark wood. Newer two-floor loft villas are clad in white timbers and are even more stunning. Other great touches include outdoor showers, direct sea access from the rooms, and gorgeous COMO Shambhala bathroom products.

On the island proper there is nothing superfluous. A large infinity pool, cracking beaches the entire way around, a gorgeous à la carte restaurant with a large range of dishes, a smart cocktail bar, a sumptuous spa, a gym, and the excellent and friendly dive centre. Everything is totally luxurious, but nothing is over the top. All in all, a great recommendation for unpretentious and low-key luxury that will keep even the most demanding guests happy.
