Coco Privé in the Maldives, one of the world’s most exclusive-use private islands, comfortably sleeps 12 adults (or eight adults and six children) and is yours to rent in its entirety.
There’s nowhere in the Indian Ocean quite like Coco Privé; an entire 1.4-hectare island, with 14 permanent staff, that is dedicated to you, your family and friends. Located on Kuda Hithi Island in the North Malé Atoll, Coco Privé is a unique retreat in the Indian Ocean with six separate luxury villas (six bedrooms and seven bathrooms – six of which are ensuite) surrounded by lush vegetation, white-sand beachfront, and an amazing coral reef.
Designed by award-winning architect, Guz Wilkinson, in partnership with Coco Collection resorts, the six-villa layout has a touch of the James Bond about it. The split-level 465 sqm Palm Residence (the main residence) offers spacious living and dining rooms filled with bespoke furniture and decorative pieces, library, cocktail bar, wine cellar and gym, and indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi, all wrapped around by a 60-metre-long pool and gardens coloured with hibiscus and bougainvillaea. There are also indoor and outdoor showers.
A natural colour scheme upstairs in the 54 sqm master suite enhances a feeling of light and space that is replicated in the other villas. Intricate wooden carvings and a super-king bed combine with the latest in-room gadgetry, and everything from the temperature to the Bose music systems is controlled by iPads.
The five guest villas are all beachfront and range from around 37 sqm to 175 sqm. The living areas are spacious and tastefully decorated. Guests have their own private bathrooms and sleep in comfortable double bedrooms that can be transformed into twin bedrooms.
Three of the guest villas, Starfish (72 sqm), Heron (78 sqm) and Turtle (37 sqm), open onto pool decking. Villas Manta and Gecko (each 175 sqm) are a little more remote from the other residences and have private pools.
There are no menus, no wine lists, no reception (although calls are answered within three rings, day and night). Every preference is carefully noted in advance, and your dining choices simply involve a conversation with the one of the highly trained chefs who can prepare traditional dishes, international food or healthy options 24 hours a day. Butlers are on hand at any time of the day to look after your every need and the on-site staff (there are around 30) at Coco Privé are happy to create bespoke and tailor-made experiences for guests.
A few other surprises include a wrought-iron chess set, dolphins carved from driftwood, a giant wicker nest hanging from a palm and even films in your own jungle cinema. Total Area of facilities: Gym, Steam Room & Powder Room 65.36 sqm / Kitchen 55.36 sqm
Thanks to the reef that surrounds Coco Privé, the island cannot be seen by paparazzi, making it a favourite with European and Middle Eastern royalty, A-list celebrities and highly successful entrepreneurs. Vast underwater mountains make it a magical place for diving and the in-house marine biologist is on hand to provide guided snorkelling experiences where you’ll meet the resident sea turtles as well as a plethora of marine life.
Kuda Hithi Island lies around 30 km northwest from Malé International Airport and is reached in approximately 40 minutes by speedboat or luxury yacht.
The Maldives is blessed with year round sunshine and average temperatures of 28°C, rising to 32°C during March and April.
Golden beaches and mangroves form a dividing line between sparkling blue waters and a verdant island interior - the diversity of plant and animal life has earned these atolls UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve status.
The pace is relaxed, but there is plenty to do on both land and water. Clear waters and rich marine life make for exhilarating diving and deep sea fishing, whilst water sports ranging from kayaking and catamaran sailing to wakeboarding and kite surfing are available in abundance.
