After staying and loving Maalifushi which is also owned by Como Hotels on our way back we stayed at Cocoa island for one night,we were slightly to say the least disillusioned by Cocoa Island .
We stayed in an Overwater Villa which was ok, the placement of the AC over the bed should be in my opinion re thought as the cold air blows down directly onto your head and shoulders.
The Villa's balcony doesn't get any sun shine until 12 pm which for some sun lovers can be a real disadvantage.The internet wifi access is extremely poor ,once we complained about it it was resolved immediately bty placing a router in the villa,but the resort needs an update / renovation.Also there are constantly excursion boats and local boats passing in front of the villa rudely reminding you of civilization and ruining your peace.
The marine life just in front of the villa is breathtaking .The food and staff also excellent. In my opinion its way too expensive for what it is .

Ufaa, the resort’s restaurant, serves fresh local produce and seafood cooked in the Keralan style, while Faru bar overlooks the pristine infinity-edge pool.
