The style and design of our newly refreshed 33 overwater suites and villas are like that of no other luxury resort in the Maldives. Uniquely inspired by dhoni boats — the gently curving wooden vessels used by local fishermen — COMO Cocoa Island’s rooms arc out from the island itself. Simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon connect them, forming an overwater boardwalk pathway.  Some villas have private pools, and each has its own private terrace — all the better for slipping into the warm Maldivian sea, right from your room. Views from the floor-to-ceiling windows look across the watery expanse and horizon, as if you’re floating on the ocean.

8 Dhoni Water Villas (75sq m/ 807sq ft)
Our split-level Dhoni Water Villas stand out for their unusual design: shaped like a traditional Maldivian ‘dhoni’ fishing boat, they make you feel like you’re floating on the ocean. The generous living room is a calming space to relax, while the overwater private terrace has a staircase that leads to the lagoon’s warm waters.


9 Dhoni Loft Water Villas (110sq m/ 1,184sq ft)
Shaped like a traditional ‘dhoni’ fishing boat, our Dhoni Loft Water Villas have an expansive lower level living area and a master bedroom on the mezzanine, making them great for families. The design is about bringing the outside space in, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water, and a private terrace touching the ocean.


10 Loft Water Villas (123sq m/ 1,324sq ft)
In these villas, the horizon feels like it extends forever as you look out from your private sundeck or watch the ocean roll past the floor-to-ceiling windows. The elevated loft features a king-sized en suite master bedroom, while the lower deck’s large and airy sitting area doubles up as a sleeping space for families. There is also a secluded outdoor rain shower with steps directly into the ocean.


4 One-Bedroom Water Villas with Pool (125sq m/ 1,345sq ft)
These light-filled villas sit on their own secluded jetty, each with a private entrance deck, surrounded by the aquamarine ocean. Outside, there’s a new private pool and a balcony with a daybed, where you can relax as the sun rises and sets on the ocean. Inside, the spacious living area with floor-to-ceiling windows provides plenty of space to unwind.


1 Three-bedroom COMO Sunset Villa (590sq m/6,351sq ft)
Our three-bedroom COMO Sunset Villa features two villas connected by a wooden walkway and is named for its spectacular sunset views. The one-bedroom villa has a master bedroom, a large terrace, a 10-metre private swimming pool and a gym. The two-bedroom villa has two wings, as well as its own private infinity pool. Both villas are suspended over the ocean and have living rooms, a nanny’s room with an ensuite bathroom and a private study. The wooden walkway can be closed off for privacy.


1 Two-bedroom COMO Sunrise Villa (300sq m/3,229sq ft)
Our two-bedroom COMO Sunrise Villa has separate wings, each featuring an en suite bedroom and a private terrace directly above the ocean. The wings are connected by the living and dining areas, with balconies on either side that let you step directly off the deck into the turquoise lagoon. There’s also a secluded deck, with a new private pool that almost touches the edge of the ocean.
