COMO Cocoa Island, SOUTH MALÉ ATOLL, Maldives
As picture-perfect island hideaways go, Cocoa Island takes some beating.
A tiny speck of land lapped by the warm waves of the Indian Ocean, studded with tropical vegetation and fringed by sugary-white sands, it's quite simply the ultimate spot to pull up a lounger, open a book and kick back in style.
And while the island is tiny, your privacy is guaranteed thanks to your very own bungalow, all wooden rustic charm on the outside but sleek, modern glamour inside.
Unlikely as it is that the charms of waking up to sparkly sea views and chilling by the infinity pool will start to wear thin, there’s always the expertly-equipped Dive and Watersports Centre to enjoy or the sensational COMO Shambhala retreat – dedicated to renewing the body’s energies, overseen by master therapists and a resident yoga teacher.
Blissful days are rounded off with your feet in the powdery sand, dining on the freshest of seafood and drinking in the idyllic views. Sheer heaven.
