STRANDED IN HEAVEN ON EARTH
Apparently heaven is a pristine and natural environment and a very easy walk, no more than 2 minutes across and 10 minutes from end to end. Como Cocoa Island is one of the tiny Robinson-Crusoe-like hideaways in the Indian Ocean, and numbers among the best diving destinations in the world. The above-water world is no less interesting, and guests sleep in suites and villas right above the water and accessible via small wooden piers. Leave yourself a backdoor open though, were a short staircase leads straight down into the ocean’s crystal clear waters. The interior design was inspired by local traditional fishing boats known as dhoni. It’s hard to imagine a better place to wash ashore and return to the simple life. Como Cocoa Island is the COMO Group’s first and smallest hotel in the Maldives, very authentic and wonderfully secluded.
