The Cocoon Collection is expanding its portfolio of luxury properties in the Maldives with the addition of Joy Island.

The property will be the latest jewel in the Cocoon Collection’s crown. It joins their esteemed collection of luxury resorts worldwide. Spanning over nine hectares, the island will feature a total of 151 rooms, comprising 100 villas and 51 suites.

The new property, situated in North Male’ Atoll, is just a short 40-minute speedboat ride away from Velana International Airport. It boasts an enchanting butterfly shape and is adorned with a wide expanse of pristine white sandy beaches. The resort is also embraced by a stunning turquoise lagoon.

The resort’s four dining venues include a multi-cuisine restaurant, an Italian pizzeria, and two bars. The main restaurant, named The Market, offers diverse cuisines, while the pizzeria, Il Basilico, will transport diners to the romantic streets of Venice with its authentic Italian dishes. For those seeking a memorable dining experience under the starry sky, Chiringuito offers delightful BBQs, according to information released by the hotel group.

The property will have a spa, kids club, and water sports and PADI dive centres with top-of-the-line equipment. The resort boasts a vibrant reef just a short swim away, and daily excursions provide opportunities for island exploration and snorkelling amid the majestic reefs that encompass this haven.

Being a family-owned brand, the Cocoon Collection has garnered decades of experience and a strong commitment to providing exceptional service to its guests. The Azzola Family, pioneers of the brand, inaugurated their first property in Sri Lanka in 1980. Since then, they have ventured into other remarkable destinations such as Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania, and the Maldives. Currently, the brand owns two properties in the Maldives: You & Me Maldives and Cocoon Maldives.

Joy Island is scheduled to welcome its inaugural guests on September 1, 2023.
