Cocoon Maldives island resort has been nominated for the prestigious 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Awards. The World Luxury Restaurant Awards incentive celebrates excellence in the field of gastronomy, from hospitality and tourism properties all over the world.

The World Luxury Restaurant Awards doesn’t solely look for the best cuisines. They also keep an eye out for the most memorable experiences, outstanding atmosphere, and top-notch services. Cocoon Maldives, designed by Italian-based LAGO, is competing for the award from the Luxury Interior Design/Architecture category. Guests of nominated hotel properties and industry professionals vote based on their personal experiences.

Cocoon Maldives is in Lhaviyani Atoll, a 30-minute seaplane ride away from the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. Located on its very own island of Ookolhufinolhu, Cocoon Maldives is developed with an elegant and modern look that compliments the surrounding tropical vibrancy. The interiors reflect the mesmerizing beauty of the marine world in the Maldives, and an earthy ambiance is provided by furniture hewn from 200-year-old Wildwood. The resort features an expansive reception pavilion, three restaurants, two bars, dive center, spa, lounge, library, gym and kid’s club.  Cocoon Maldives houses 150 villas on the beach and over the turquoise lagoon.

The fantastic interiors at Cocoon Maldives certainly deserve the award for the chic luxury they offer. The South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) recognized Cocoon Maldives as South Asia’s Leading Design Hotel on 28 October 2017, so chances are Cocoon Maldives’ impeccable decor will once again get a prestigious recognition.


The Maldives grabbed several World Luxury Restaurant Awards for 2017. The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort, of course, won accolades for Global Restaurant of the Year, Luxury Unique Experience, and Luxury Resort Restaurant. Another notable achievement for the Maldives last year was the recognition by World Luxury Restaurant Awards of Samsara Asian Fusion at Hideaway Beach Resort and Spa, which sits on stilts over the island’s heavenly lagoon. Samsara Asian Fusion got accolades for their mouthwateringly scrumptious Asian Cuisines. Last year’s award for Fine Dining Cuisine went to Trio at Sun Siyam Irufushi, and the best Luxury Seafood Restaurant accolade went to Thila at Kurumba Maldives Resort.

The 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Awards will be announced at a Gala Ceremony on 22 August 2018.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed, wishing for a hearty success to Cocoon Maldives! If you’ve stayed there, you can contribute to the polls as well. If not, why not head over to the Maldives for a unique luxury experience?
