Discover the Path to Rejuvenation, Relaxation and Revitalization
at award-wining COMO Cocoa Island on this Villa Sundeck

COMO Cocoa Island, the pre-eminent private island in the Maldives, is pleased to have recently won a number of influential travel and wellness awards intrinsically linked to the beating heart of the resort- the COMO Shambhala Retreat.

COMO Cocoa Island’s recent wins include World’s Leading Private Resort 2016 by the World Travel Awards; Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the World by TripAdvisor Travellers Choice 2016; and Maldives’ Best Wellness Retreat and Indian Ocean Best Wellness Retreat by the World Spa Award 2017 as well as Romantic Resort of the Year by AsiaSpa 2015.

Guests at COMO Cocoa Island are now invited to discover their own holistic path to wellness through three options available at the COMO Shambhala Retreat—the Rejuvenation Path, the Relaxation Path and the Revitalization Path.

The Rejuvenation Path is a 5 hour 15 minute treatment that begins with a 60-minute private Hatha yoga session. A COMO Shambhala bath follows, cleansing and gently exfoliating skin before a COMO Shambhala salt scrub is applied to the body, before a relaxing 60-minute COMO Shambhala Massage. 

After a light lunch from the COMO Shambhala Cuisine menu, the path is concluded with a 60-minute deep tissue massage. The Rejuvenation Path is priced at USD545 per person.

The Relaxation Path is a 5 hour and 45 minute treatment which begins with a 60-minute Indian head massage that reduces tension in the head, neck and shoulders and includes a gentle facial. A 60 minute COMO Shambhala Massage follows, using our signature blended massage oil calm the mind and rejuvenate the body. 

A 60-minute reflexology session follows to create a state of deep relaxation while stimulating the body’s healing processes. The treatment concludes with a 60-minute facial and a nourishing manicure and pedicure which includes an aromatic soak and scrub. The Relaxation Path is priced at USD 650 per person.

The Revitalisation Path is a 3 hour and 15 minute treatment that begins with a 60-minute aqua therapy session, using the pressure of warm water as a way to massage and relax the body. 

This type of treatment has been effectively used to treat pain and to recover from surgery or injury. Next is a 75-minute COMO Shambhala Massage which uses our signature blended massage oil to calm the mind and relax the body. The treatment concludes with a 60-minute Sundari healing facial, designed to restore even the most sensitive of skin.  The Revitalization Path is priced at USD390 per person.

About COMO Cocoa Island

COMO Cocoa Island is a private island in the Maldives. Wrapped in white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, the resort is in close proximity to some of the best dive sites in the world. Yet it is also accessible, for the resort is located in South Male’s coral atolls, a 35-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport. The tranquil setting is enhanced by the understated elegance of COMO Cocoa Island’s rooms, which resemble local dhoni fishing boats and feature direct access to the shallow lagoon. All have a private outdoor sun deck, as well as spacious living and sleeping areas decorated in flowing white muslin. The pale colours contribute to the overall feeling of quiet, contemporary design. Ufaa, the resort’s restaurant, serves fresh local produce and seafood cooked in the Keralan style, while Faru bar overlooks the pristine infinity-edge pool. COMO Cocoa Island’s spa, COMO Shambhala Retreat, offers rebalancing treatments, including Ayurveda, massages and facials.
