That’s the spirit of the place, Cocoa is a proper desert island retreat, and it has been ever since the German photographer Eric Klemm decided to ditch his life and imitate Robinson Crusoe in the Maldives. The book that chronicles his struggle to turn a bit of shrub on a patch of sand into a place people would want to stay is hilarious and fascinating. I have pm’d you my email address, send me an email and I will send you my Maldives file with all contacts and itineraries. Might save you a little time! This is one of the most beautiful islands in Maldives, close to the famous dive site, Kandooma Channel. The secluded rooms, calm chirping of the birds living in ever green tropical trees, pleasant staffs and breath taking sceneries are some of the basic elements that make your stay in Coco Palm an unforgettable and treasured one.
