Dinner under the stars with citizen astronaut Sara Sabry at COMO Cocoa Island

Luxury lifestyle resort COMO Cocoa Island will be hosting a dinner under the stars with citizen astronaut Sara Sabry, the first Arab woman in space. This event will be the culmination of a series of Space Camps at the COMO Hotels and Resorts’ island properties in Thailand, Bali and the Maldives for young explorers.

Taking place on August 7th, 2023, this one-night only dinner will have the space star sharing her experiences and stories of outer space. The evening will feature a five-course menu inspired by the five elements of matter. The space-themed menu, has been specially designed by Executive Chef Kadek and his team and paired with specially crafted cocktails and mocktails. Due to limited seats, advance reservations are required.

The proceeds from the evening’s meal will go towards the MantaTrust Ocean Women’s initiative to train Maldivian women as swimming and snorkelling instructors, who in turn will hold routine swimming and snorkelling classes to empower more women to feel confident in the sea. Established in April 2022, the Ocean Women initiative aims to empower women worldwide to access the ocean for recreational activities such as swimming, snorkelling, diving, and surfing.
