Cocoa Island, The Maldives
Secluded Cocoa island lies in the South Male atoll of the Maldives, part of an undisturbed archipelago where centuries of tides have sifted porcelain-fine sands into a dazzling, cushion-soft white.
Perfect for a honeymoon, rooms are inspired by local dhoni boats in bleached wood with alang-alang roofs. From your platform bed, watch fishing boats sail the Indian Ocean. The COMO Shambhala Retreat offers yoga and Asian-inspired treatments, while Cocoa Island’s restaurant features seafood and organic vegetables cooked by an award-winning chef. Diving here is among the best in the world with two private house reefs.
Seasons (01244 202 000; www.seasons.co.uk) is offering seven nights at Cocoa Island for the price of five from 1 May to 15 October, 2011. From £2,115 per person (saving £1,670 per couple) including flights with British Airways, transfers and B&B accommodation in an over-water Dhoni Suite. Honeymooners also receive a bottle of Champagne on arrival, a complimentary sunset cruise with wine and antipasto, and a private yoga class for two.
