Explore These Dhoni-Style Villas At COMO Cocoa Island

Tuesday 14th of March 2023

COMO Cocoa Island sits tucked away in South Male’ Atoll, a short speedboat ride from Velana International Airport. As the cosy, chic resort comes into view, guests will immediately be dazzled by its eye-catching overwater villas and suites, appearing from a distance to be moored across the lagoon. A dash of innovative architectural designs defines these villas, aimed to capture the local essence of traditional Maldivian fishing boats called ‘Dhoni’.

With all its 33 elegantly furnished accommodation units sitting overwater, COMO Cocoa Island offers guests a unique stay that cocoons them in blissful privacy while providing uninterrupted views of the famed Maldivian horizon. The majority of villas are gently curved to depict the ‘Dhoni’ shape with spacious interiors exuding a charm of homely comfort and luxury. The expansive deck areas with inviting step ladders allure guests to step right into the sea from their terrace.

A winding boardwalk connects all villas to the resort island where other bespoke facilities such as dining spaces are featured. COMO Cocoa Island houses several different categories of accommodations on its premises. Some of the unique villa styles include:

Dhoni Water Villa

Celebrated for its unique Dhoni design, the split-level villas create an illusion of floating over the ocean and feature one bedroom. A private overwater terrace extends outwards from the main living area, where loungers and a dining table are placed for guests to enjoy. A staircase leads its way down to the turquoise lagoon where guests can get in for a quick soak. A bathtub and separate shower stall are also included in these types of villas.

Dhoni Loft Water Villa

Slightly bigger in size than Dhoni water villas, these villas come with a voluminous lower-level living area and an elevated master bedroom on a mezzanine, making them a great pick for families. Floor-to-ceiling windows capitalize on bringing the outside into the indoors while overlooking the shimmering waters. A private outdoor deck area provides direct access to the waters here as well. Dhoni Loft villas also host separate shower stalls and bathtubs.

Loft Water Villa

Time stands still in these villas, as the ocean waves continuously roll past the windows and the horizon infinitely stretches ahead in the sunshine. The main highlight of these villas is the secluded outdoor rain shower with steps directly descending into the ocean. A raised loft leads guests into the en-suite master bedroom while the airy lower deck can double up as a sleeping space for families at night. A private shower stall and bathtub are also featured in these villas.
