COMO Cocoa Island is an intimate private Maldives island resort located in the South Malé Atoll (or South Kaafu Atoll).

Encircled with powder white sand, the carefree, understated luxury experience includes world-class diving, fishing trips, as well as sunset cruises offering a chance to watch dolphins at play. COMO Cocoa Island, known locally as Makunufushi, is located among South Malé’s coral atolls.
The style of COMO Cocoa Island is like that of no other luxury hotel in the Maldives. With a uniquely local aesthetic, the resort’s 33 suites and villas are inspired by the gently curving wooden forms of the local ‘dhoni’ fishing boats. Each bungalow, connected by a sinuous planked walkway, sits offshore and overhangs the lagoon. Built of New Zealand pine with Kajan thatched roofs, each suite has high raftered ceilings and glossy teak floors. Floor-to-ceiling windows open to substantial decks, blurring the line between inside and out. Blue and white décor further brings the sea, sand and sky into the heart of every room.

Hotel Akti was founded in 1932 by our great-grandmother, as the very first Hotel on Skiathos.
Ever since, four generations have been taking over the business, modernizing and giving it part of their own touch, always remaining true to the original traditional philosophy..
Founded in 1932 under the name “Hotel Akti” (meaning coast) by Maria Pana-Bogiatzi, it operates constantly until August 1944, when it is burnt down by the german occupants, just before their departure.
Back then, the Hotel is basically “sitting” inside the water, overlooking the east. Its capacity is 6 double rooms and it is the only hotel on the island.
In 1949 it is rebuilt from scratch, by the couple Ourania Vogiatzis-Lazos and Dimitrios Lazos. It is completed in 1952 and operated under the direction of Ourania Vogiatzis-Lazou as a “third class” hotel, with a capacity of 10 double and 2 single rooms.
The couple’s (Ourania and Dimitrios Lazos) 4 children are born and raised inside the hotel. The family uses the ground floor of the three storey building as a residence and the upper two floors serve as the hotel.
Renovated by the owner in 1960, 2 WC’s and a bathroom are added on each of the two floors, while all bedrooms are equipped with wash basins.
In 1988 it is reerected entirely by the new owners, Maria Lazou-Tsomou and Angelica Lazou-Prevezanou, as a new four-story building, designed by architect Yiannis Tsomos. In 1991 it is reopened as a hotel with its original name “Hotel Akti”.
Today the hotel is still in its original location within the town of Skiathos, directly facing the new promenade, the sea and the harbour on the east coast. It has 13 double rooms and a fully equipped 2-bedroom apartment suite with kitchen and living room. The Hotel undergoes its latest transformations in 2011 and 2012 with a major renovation of the interior design of the guestrooms.

Canvas Boutique Hotel Philippines - the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Trust us, you’ll need more than a moment to take it all in. Canvas is exactly what it’s called—look up to lights that mimic the stalactites of the Underground River, look down to intricate Machuca tiles, look left and right and center as hand-painted wall art narrates stories of the island, live and in color. All the visual imagery will make you want to soak it up—whether it’s as you kick your feet back in your spacious room, share plates of dishes at the vibrant restaurant, or take a dip in the outdoor pool. Whatever you choose, keep your eyes wide open and your heart set to experience adventure — it’s how we do it at Canvas.
STORY OF THE WALLS
If walls could talk, what would you want it to say? The walls at Canvas speak volumes, and—quite literally—every storey has a story. Weaving that narrative into life were a team of visual artists who rendered Palawan culture, life forms and mythology onto colorful, vibrant reverbs of the island's most celebrated cultural traits. The result is a refreshing surge of life, breathed to perfectly weave into the hotel's contemporary fixtures. To wit, the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Start from the ground up and allow the Canvas walls speak to you. The first floor, dubbed Underworld, is painted with otherworldly elements that'll leave the observer daunted. As you reach the second landing, drown out in awe as you explore Under The Sea, teeming with water creatures floating in colorful concrete. Trek the steps to Land at the third floor, as you imagine yourself at a hike through earthy ground and rich soil, and bask at the summit in the top and fourth floor, aptly called Sky and Mountain, where airy explorations await. See, your adventure has already begun—and you've only just arrived at the hotel.

Ecclesia is the unexpected blend of a 6th Century church, a modern spa, 22 luxurious suites and a contemporary beach bar. The very word 'Ecclesia', deriving from the Latin word meaning 'church', suggests history - and there's certainly that! The central courtyard houses the ruins of the Church of St. Demetrius dating back to the time of St. Paul.
Ecclesia is the realisation of almost 50 years of the owners’ dreams. Its concept: a fusion of the very old and new - a unique hotel in keeping with the spirit of an ancient church without compromising luxury. Guests of Ecclesia can expect a bespoke retreat filled with subtle detail. The use of all-natural materials (stone, mosaic, marble and linen) reflects elements of the church whilst creating an intriguing contrast to the modern rain showers, designer fixtures and fittings, contemporary art and luxury accessories.
Each of the 22 rooms at Ecclesia has been thoughtfully placed to make the most of the views of St. Demetrius. Each has a private balcony or terrace overlooking the central courtyard. A few even boast sea views. Ecclesia's location, a stone's throw from Oludeniz beachfront, nestled behind the family’s award-winning bar and restaurant, provides guests with a wide range of activities on the doorstep.
Visitors can choose to relax and enjoy Ecclesia's timeless surroundings, or can head over to Buzz and take in the panoramic sea views, sip world class cocktails, and enjoy the fine dining and Mediterranean cuisine that earned Buzz five star ratings and the enviable title of one of the top 5 beach bars in the world.
