Sharks Beneath our Bedroom!Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Delightful staff all round. Special thanks to our 'butler', Fanny; our Dive Instructor, Hamza, and our Yoga teacher, who's name we never learned!
Cons: It was cloudy one day, and our butler was almost TOO attentive!
Location: Diving. Yoga. Hydrotherapy. Massage. Gym. Beach. Windsurf. Catamaran. Fishing. Peace.
I never believe people who say that holiday destinations are 'paradise', but Cocoa Island is as close as it gets. It's expensive, thats a fact, but frankly, worth every penny. The food is superb, the decor and facilities first rate. We came here principally to dive and the resort dive shop is, in my fifteen years experience, quite simply the best. The fifteen meter boat, with crew of three plus dive instructors was as often as not host only to myself and at most during our two weeks, to three other divers. The dive sites are amongst the best I've ever seen, with the greatest drift dive ever in 'Cocoa Thila'.The resort is built on the Island itself but the rooms are located on stilts above the ocean, and we really did have baby black tip sharks swimming under our bedroom, and around our ankles at times! Turtles, Manta, Sting Rays, Eagle Rays, White, Black tip and Grey reef sharks abound. The resort houses about eighty people but we felt we were almost alone there, and there's no fighting for space or sun beds. We hardly saw anyone during the day. There's no 'night life' as such, but who needs it when the days are so long and beautiful. We skipped lunch most days, too hot, and the complimentary fruit bowl more than sufficed! Wine with dinner went from pricey to ridiculous and breakfast being the only meal included in the 'rate' one is a bit hostage to their only being one restaurant but as I said before it is exceptionally good.

Sureal surroundings Heaven on earthPosted May 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Everything was just perfect. The location of the island is amazing especially at low tide, the sand is so white and the sea cristal blue. The breakfast is delicious and actually all the food could be rated 5 stars! The staff is very friendly but not too nosy. The service and the location make the stay very exclusive and romantic. The spa is wonderful. The only downside is the reef around the island is not the most beautifull but anyways the island proposes excursions to other reefs with turtles for example!

Special break maldivesPosted May 5, 2013
We had a fantastic four nights and couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough. It is expensive but you always feel its worth it. To be abe to snorkel straight out of your room was amazing. A true treat.

Relaxation!Posted Dec 20, 2012 on Hotels.com
Como on Cocoa Island is the only resort on the island. Staff is very friendly and they will get to know you. Food was excellent. Great spa services. Plenty of water activities to do.

Great Reef LifePosted Aug 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the local reef life outstanding! We sampled the spa during a rain shower and found the treatment sublime. This is a place to come for a few days as there is only one restaurant and so you soon work your way through most of the menu. Breakfasts are lovely with an extensive choice. Our only disappointment was our lunch experience on two occassions when what we were served did not match what we had ordered and it was not really rectified to our satisfaction on either occassion. In fact, on the second occassion we were charged for both the incorrect meal item as well as the correct one which was finally delivered after a further wait of at least 20 minutes!
