A boat stay

When do you think of staying somewhere for a vacation do you picture yourself in a luxury hotel room overlooking the ocean or a beautiful landscape, a garden? How about being on a boat?

Welcome to Cocoa Island!


This is the floor plan of the space:


Most of Cocoa Island’s rooms are uniquely inspired by dhoni boats, the style of vessel used by local fishermen. They are adjoined by simple wooden walkways built above the shallow lagoon. From your room, walk out on to a private terrace and slip into a warm Maldivian sea.The view from the wide platform bed is directly out to the watery expanse. The bathrooms, a bath and shower, share the horizon views. Interiors are quietly contemporary with a nod to local rusticity in Maldivian kajan roofing- description on Cocoa Island’s website.

Isn’t the wood gorgeous? A love the feel of the room – calm, relaxing, the crisp white linens, the textured wallpaper on the ceiling. Did you see the size of the bathroom? Would you stay here if given the chance?




  1. Looks very relaxing! If given the chance I would be there in a heart beat. I like the design of the cottages, they feel warm and cozy.

    Thanky for the dreams.

  2. I would like to go on a vacation to this place. I like the idea of staying on a little boat in nice warm water where i could go swimming in the middle of the night. Looks great.


  3. That is a little slice of heaven... really would love to stay in one of those.


Thank you for your comments. I do read them and appreciate them. Have a wonderful day!
