For the food-lover, the resort offers a selection of contemporary restaurants and bars; the more energetic can use first-class land- and water-sport facilities; and a portfolio of expertly crafted Uniquely Coco experiences an overnight stay on a desert island, for instance is on offer.
If sun, sea and luxury arent enough, the Coco Spa is there to help the winner and guest relax still further, offering treatments from Thailand, Indonesia and India.
The prize includes breakfast and dinner daily; one spa treatment per person; one Movies Under the Maldivian Sky Uniquely Coco experience; a wine appreciation session in the Wine Room, followed by dinner; return economy flights from London Heathrow; and return speedboat transfers to and from the resort.
