The Cocoon Collection Family

Our Story

The Cocoon Collection is a new luxury brand that gathers forty years of life, work and passion of the Azzola family in the Indian Ocean. From the first resort created in 1980 by Enzo and Maria Rosaria in Sri Lanka, to the four hotels founded between Zanzibar and Maldives by Attilio, Alessandro and Andrea; up to the tour operator Azemar founded and developed by Maria Rosaria, who distinguished herself as the main female entrepreneur in the Italian touristic industry.

Unique locations, contemporary design, informal but elegant hospitality and gourmet cousin come together to create products deeply rooted in the local culture and natural beauty.
The Cocoon Collection philosophy aims to reconnect man to the earth, to gestures and smiles of different cultures that turn in long lasting memories.

Since the very beginning of our story we got deeply involved in the local communities that welcomed us on their territory. The final stage has been the creation of the Sofia Luna Azzola Foundation in Zanzibar, a non-profit organization founded in 2016 with the aim of providing different opportunities to improve the life of the local communities and support other realities of discomfort on the island.
