Pure paradise continued when we took a short boat ride (10 mins) to visit a breathtakingly beautiful, holistic wellbeing retreat in the Maldives’ South Male Atoll, Cocoa Island. Part of the COMO Hotels and Resorts Group (The Halkin, The Metropolitan, Parrot Cay, Uma, and Como Shambhala Estate, Bali), Christina Ong does it again with her sense of cool chic style and minimalist zen design.

Cocoa Island, Maldives

This is truly the place for romantic lovebirds and honeymooners. We snorkelled, ate delicious food, and admired the reef activity right outside the villas. There is the fantastic spa Como Shambhala and yoga every morning free of charge. On this tiny island, even at full capacity when we visited, we hardly bumped into a soul. So if you’re looking for that magical getaway, then look no further at Cocoa Island.
