“A Truly Amazing Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was privileged to stay at this amazing resort which exceeded our expectations and you can say we have been treated as a royal family. A calm island with absolute beauty and super luxury a truly oases. First Thanks goes out to Ms Mominna & Mr Hilmee and also my old friend Panduka (Marketing Manager of Blue-chip (Pvt) Ltd.

The Island Villa which we stayed was fantastic and the in-room amenities were beyond your expectation . The private pool in the Villa and the beautiful ocean view from the other side, definitely helps you relax and unwind at your leisure.

The food was super great. The buffet and a la cart menu at air restaurant had many varieties of food to choose from. We certainly had a sumptuous feast. The staff are extremely friendly and hospitable specially SAHEED (Maldivian) and the Pastry Chef Fernando (Sri Lankan). They indeed made us feel like we are home with their outstanding service at all times.

Also Sanjaya (Front office Manager) was always helpful with my busy shedule.

I am bit sad as This is a truly paradise for HONEY-MOONERS and I missed my Honey moon here. :-)
We [ My Lovely wife Thilini and 2 Kids (Manu & Vinu)] enjoyed to the max.......

We left this place with so many wonderful memories. A big big THANK YOU goes out to the most friendly staff who made this holiday retreat a super doper and an unforgettable one for us.

All in all, we LOVED our first ever Maldivian leisure holiday and lucky to have Coco Bodu Hithi, and are looking forward to going back there again.

Please try to add more activities for Kids (Eg; Play area to put kids and then couple can enjoy the water sports activities as well. Then this will be more attractive for families as well.

Once again A BIG THANK FOR Sanjaya , Fernando , Saheed , Jonathan & the staff..... ALL THE BEST AND MAY MORE Travellers visit the COCO BUDU THITHI

Room Tip: For Families Island Villas are the best and for Honeymooners Water Villas are the best!!!

Stayed here in 2009 for my Honeymoon. All I can say is that it was fantastic. It is a little bit of heaven on earth. Everything about this resort was brilliant, the food was nice and the staff were very friendly even bringing watermelons and wet towels to the pool to help you keep cool. The rooms were huge and we had an upgrade for our first night which was nice. We stayed in the over water villas and to be able to wake up looking at the ocean was amazing. No hesitations recommending this resort and hopefully some day ill be able return

Room Tip: If you can afford it upgrade to the water villas

An absolutely stunning Maldivian resort. Elegant and spacious over-water villas and a choice of restaurants, all serving excellent food. Stars restaurant is a real highlight being over water at one end of the island. The atmosphere throughout the resort is relaxed and friendly. Staff are universally friendly and courteous. We were made to feel extremely welcome throughout our stay. Be advised that men must were long trousers for evening meals and nudity or topless sunbathing are strictly forbidden.

Room Tip: The escape water villas have stunning views and offer more space, definitely worth the higher price.

Just a short not to say thankyou to all the staff @ Coco Bodu!! We arrived on the 8th July for a week for our Honeymoon and was the best experience of our life's!!!! Staying in the escape water residence room 324 views of sunset and sunrise.. And easy access to snorkelling right outside our escape water villa! From the day we arrived we were made to feel very special.. Our host Claire was so friendly and made us feel relaxed! The island is beautiful .. The food by the pool and in all the restaurants was yummeee! Cocktails at the pool were so refreshing!! !! Plenty of water sports and loved the snorkelling out at the well developed house reef where we seem 2 giant turtles a ray and a million different types of fish! Our personalised name plate on the outside of our villa and champagne on arrival were just little extra touches that we made it more special!! And we won't forget our housekeeper Sobre who had our villa kept in pristine condition and run us a bath every night .. First night with lots of bubbles and rose petals so romantic!! ❤❤I couldn't fault this hotel one bit.. It was modern but rustic at the same time! The only thing that maybe needs a little attention was the beach at some parts as waring away slightly!! Loved feeding the two jack fish outside stars a few pieces of bread the huge jack fish was there religiously everyday! All in all 5 star and would recommend the escape water residency for sheer privacy and luxury! If on a budget would go for the normal water villas as they look nice when we past them!!

We were also so lucky with the weather as it was in the 30's every day and not any rain!!☀☀☀

Hopefully we get back for our anniversary in years to come!!

Big love Connie & Graham xxx

A relatively seamless forty minute speed boat transfer to a really beautiful island within the Maldives North Malé Atoll. Lush tropical rainforest across the island and really good quality snorkeling / coral gardens with lots of marine life right from the beach. Would suggest the Island Villa over the Water Villa simply due to the privacy and larger room type. We were upgraded on arrival and requested to be moved back to the Island Villa for the privacy factor. The Island Villas include your own pool and direct beach access with dedicated sun loungers. After staying at a number of hotels across the Maldives you will not be disappointed with choosing Coco.

If you are looking for the most relaxing, breathtakingly beautiful, truly welcoming resort in the Maldives then look no further.

I stayed at Coco Palm Bodu hithi last August with my mother and it was truly the most amazing place we have ever visited and we love to travel. The staff were amazing and could not do enough for us especially Sanjay.

I will be returning very soon and cannot wait! It is without question the best place we have ever stayed. Paradise on Earth!

Amazing....great service, excellent food, beautiful location. Stayed in an island villa, not disappointed. It was spacious and comfortable. The snorkeling was fantastic. Weather was mostly great which was lucky. We just loved it and would come back. The staff were all outstanding. Thank you for helping us to have a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: We had room 319 which was a lovely location.
