Cocoa Island is for people who want nothing more than to wander along extraordinary, blindingly-white beaches, or to participate in morning yoga ahead of a long day snorkelling aside the coral reefs.
In an effort to preserve the extraordinary beauty of this tiny island surrounded by miles of startlingly white sand, the guest accommodation was constructed in the shape of the traditional boats of the Maldives - Dhonis - so that from a distance it appears as if fishing boats have docked at the island.
From a distance, they appear like Dhoni, the traditional fishing boats of the Maldives, but inside they are more like a modern Swedish cabin with their white walls and pale wooden infrastructure.
The view from almost any angle is worthy of a postcard, particularly at low tide. The long stretches of white sandy beaches and their organic swirling shapes are quite extraordinary.
The natural wood and Kajan thatch restaurant flanks the resort's infinity pool. Guests can also be served a private dinner on their terrace or under a tent in the sand.
The bar is adjacent to the swimming pool and maintains the prevailing style of the resort; it's simple and unpretentious.
