Como Cocoa Island, the Maldivian private island resort in South Malé Atoll, will reopen to guests on January 9th after a substantial renovation.
The resort – which is also the location of some of the Caribbean’s finest private estate homes – underwent a number of renovations over the summer months, ahead of the reopening for the winter season.
The accommodations offer private apartment-style accommodation adjacent to the hotel on Brick Street, in Mayfair’s historic heart and opposite leafy Hyde Park, with easy access to all major rail links.
The 740-acre, historic estate is situated in the world-famous Chianti wine region of Italy, just a 30-minute drive from the Renaissance cities of Florence and Siena.
In this role, Tibble will be based in the Turks & Caicos, overseeing Como Parrot Cay, as well as sister property Como Metropolitan Miami Beach in Florida.
Como Hotels & Resorts has appointed Javier Beneyto as the new general manager of Como Metropolitan London, the 144-bedroom contemporary hotel in Mayfair.
COMO Hotels and Resorts has announced it will open an exclusive new property in the Maldives this October. Maalifushi by COMO, an eight-hectare private island in the southerly Thaa Atoll, will be the company’s second resort in the Maldives. Its sister property, Cocoa Island by COMO, located further north in the South Malé atoll, opened in 2002.
Reflecting its growth as a brand for discerning travellers, COMO Hotels and Resorts is unveiling an updated brand identity along with a new website. COMO’s nine properties will keep their individual logos while underpinned with “by COMO,” conveying the company’s distinctive personalised approach to hospitality.
