My wife and I are stunned after our honeymoon at Como Cocoa Island - the best holiday either of us has ever had. It's tough to describe the experience beyond saying that it's somehow exactly the right balance - simple but luxurious, comfortable but exotic, private but social (if you want it to be), relaxing but stimulating, and all in the most idyllic setting imaginable.
With so few rooms, you often feel like you have the 350m island and its sandbar all to yourself (whether lazing, strolling, snacking, snorkelling, or exercising). The Dhoni loft villa was stunning, spacious, well-equipped; the food varied and excellent; the beaches and reefs breathtaking.
It takes quite an operation to craft this outwardly seamless experience; the staff are all wonderful and make it pleasant from the moment you land until the moment you reluctantly enter security for your return flight. Thanks esp. to Nawal for looking after our room, Mode, Zayan, and Kai for the epic onsite snorkelling/scuba, Nok for the yoga/meditation, and Wasim, Christian, Muru, Sithin, Fang, and Faisal for the restaurant/bar experience.
We hope to be back soon (and noticed that many guests are long-time repeat visitors).
