Best for: A luxurious holiday getaway
A blink away by speedboat from the Malé airport (40 minutes to be precise), Coco Palm Bodu Hithi will take your breath away. The resort promises the ideal Maldivian getaway with contemporary, five-star amenities amidst verdant greenery and sparkling azure waters.
The resort comprises four types of villas, each one equipped with a private swimming pool. The Island Villa, which has direct access to a secluded beach area and a giant circular bathtub in the middle of the room, is the resort’s biggest option, giving an impression of a luxurious penthouse. The Water Villas are triballooking retreats stilted upon the lagoon. Each has a balcony with an infinity pool, an ideal spot for watching the sunset with, of course, a glass of champagne. For utmost exclusivity and privacy, the Coco Residence sits in a secluded wing and actually requires a short trek to get to. The walk, however, is enjoyable and includes a walk across a wooden bridge over crystal-clear waters.
The resort doesn’t only spoil you with top-notch facilities; Coco Palm Bodu Hithi offers one of the most diverse and appetizing culinary experiences in Maldives. Air churns out casual international bites, while Tsuki whips up an array of Japanese dishes ranging from simple sushi and nigiri to exquisite kaiseki meals. Mediterranean-inspired dishes are given fine-dining touches and served at Stars restaurant. Wine lovers will be enticed by over 200 selections of old and new world bottles provided at Wine Loft.
Aquatic activities are on offer to keep sports buffs active during their stay. Couples can go on a romantic Champagne sunset cruise in the evening or indulge in a brief escape to a private sandbank for some alone time. Friendly service, combined with some of the most luxurious and beautiful impressions of the Maldives, will have you wishing that you won’t have to leave.
