Jet Set: Cocoa Island Resort by Como
Hello LDV readers! Brendan here of (BAD) Blog About Design. For this Jet Set post I decided to take us to a warm location! The Cocoa Island Resort is located in the Maldives. When I first came across this resort I was amazed by its design. It looks like such a fascinating and relaxing place to stay. The ability to simply walk right into the sea, and be hundreds of feet from shore is amazing. (ABOVE) The suites are connected to a center island and each other by simple wooden walkways. The center island houses a spa, pools, and many other amenities. I would love to go snorkeling around the resort to see all the coral. (BELOW 1) Each suite is housed in a boat on the sea. I love the natural roof, and blue moldings. I can just picture myself sitting on the front deck and relaxing in a wooden armchair. (BELOW 2) The suites have a very clean and light design. Wood is one of the key materials used in each suite. I love how the dark wood looks against the white drapery and furniture. To add some spice to each suite, pops of color are brought in through the pillows and rugs. The low seating is very relaxing and adds for an intimate conversation. (BELOW 3) The one bedroom villa features a wonderfully deigned Master bedroom. Warm wood tones, earth toned patterns, and gentle white fabrics create a relaxing environment. (BELOW 4) If you book the larger two-bedroom suite, you will have the luxury of a large outdoor terrace that hovers over the sea. It's attached to the main suite by a simple wooden walkway. The two-bedroom suite also comes with a 24 hour butler, so you can sip a Pina Colada and not move for anything! 1 2 3
