TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This was our 5th Maldivian vacation and I can honestly say that Coco Palm was the best hotel. Fabulous island, great rooms, terrific food and exceptional management. The house reef is not so good. For those who seek for more details. We've spend two weeks on the island and changed three room types - Water (Lagoon) villas, Sunset villas and Deluxe Beach Villas. Lagoon villas have a very good size, plunge pool, jacuzzi. Everything was perfectly working and we enjoyed it a lot. Try to get the ones close to the 'edge', they offer more privacy. We stayed in 98 and it was great. Sunset villas. They all are good, isolated from each other (as almost every villa on the island). They do not have a plunge pool despite of some web-sites information. Initially we wanted to spend the second week in Sunset villas but decided to switch to Deluxe because they provide more 'Maldivian' feeling. Sunset villas face the busy lagoon site with more people, dhoni ships, cargos, seaplanes coming and going. This site is not that picturesque. Also the water is not clear at lagoon because of water plants Deluxe Beach Villas were fantastic. It is the same as Sunset ones + plunge pool and small outdoor bathtub. The eastern site was great. The snorkeling side is also there Sand and beach erosion. Yes they do have it. It is hard to predict where you'll meet it as the sand is moving around the island. In our case there were many sand bags on lagoon site. House reef - very average by Maldivian standards with most of the corals dead. But you'll find there all the species you're going to meet - turtles, sharks, eagle rays etc. Diving - we did an Advanced course with Dive Ocean center. Everything was really professional and well organized. Their dive spots I would rate as 4 out of 5 Food at the restaurants is exceptionally good, with a perfect variety of fish meals. My best complements to the Chief! Island is green with terrific garden and jungle-like paths. Overall impression of the hotel and island is very positive. They gain from quality and not quantity of villas. Hotel is very well managed and maintained and I can definitely recommend it

We selected Coco Palm for family time away from the craziness of Dubai, and we were not disappointed. From the transfer off our Emirates flight across to the sea plane transfer into the private lounge, it set the tone very quickly and solid impression of warm well rehearsed hospitality. A short sea plane ride found us being skimmed across the ocean to the warm welcome of the Island team, headed by a fabulous Irish gentleman & recently arrived GM, Brendan. He introduced us to his team, one by one and each member of the team from Front office Leaders and Food & Beverage Manager (you'll have to excuse me, i can't recall all of their names) giving us wonderful over view of the island, activities and dining opportunities. While we only stayed 3 days/nights a few extra days would have great to do. Books, beach, excellent F&B really made this a balanced place to recharge the mind and soul. First day we shared a local Dhow with another couple and excursions team for an Indian Ocean snorkelling adventure. 2 seperate locations and several hours of bobbing in the ocean watching turtles, and the kids spotting 'Nemo' and dozens of 'Dory' Angel fish made the trip a memorable one. The journey back to dry land, we were presented with an onboard picnic lunch, completely unexpected, but fully appreciated. The room/villa looked directly onto the beach, private access, but generous space, balcony, plunge pool and beach chairs and within 50 steps from the villa door, we were immersing ourselves into the Indian ocean. There has been attempt in the past to build an artificial reef, and would be great to see this regenerated, as the sea life would certainly benefit. Again plenty of Turtles and a few Manta Rays floating past, to fill the view of our snorkelling endeavours...! Back to land the family sauntered down to the sunset lounges on the far side of the island, kids checking out the baby sharks swimming close to shore and bottle of champagne for the grown ups to enjoy the final rays of an excellent day. Again the GM, Brendan was meeting and greeting each guest, chatting and listening candidly about the snorkelling, and us passing thanks to his fabulous activities team, who made the kids feel super welcome. Food and Beverage in the resort was of a very high standard, given almost all of the fresh foods come transported by boat, the creativity of each meal and buffet was very good. Dishes were well seasoned and prepared. We ventured into a staff lunch celebrating the end of Ramadan, and were warmly welcomed to join and take part in the in the local food on offer. Having lived in Sri Lanka, it was exciting to see some very familiar and similar dishes we had enjoyed whilst living in Colombo. A rare treat to share a a meal and was a special part of the stay. To round off the stay we took dinner on the beach, where the F&B teams had set up a Beach BBQ, lobsters, Prawns, Steak etc... Again, some wonderful Champagne, wine and stars galore, with the kids using a start tracker app on the phone to identify the stars and planets moving through the skies at night... The chefs did a great job. Utilised also the Coco Spa - 90 Minutes Deep Tissue Massage... Excellent. The resort is 20+ years old, but the maintenance and upkeep has kept this hotel resort in great shape, and is a credit the GM Brendan and the Engineering teams to keep this standard very high and Wifi recently added just enough outside contact to remain in touch... I would recommend this hotel, I would stay again at this hotel. It was the right balance for the mind, body and soul... Thanks to the GM Brendan, and his fabulous team for the making the stay wonderful, Thank you...

We did enjoy our 9 days at Dhuni Kolhu. Friendly staff, good variation in the restaurant. We also enjoyed playing tennis, kayaking and walking around the island. We had a sunset beach villa, and I would choose that also next time. Beach was better on that side (more sand). Villa was good for the 3 of us, good size, clean.

My partner and I spent a week here in July and had a wonderful time. There are a few things I will point out in the review that mean I don't think that I can give this five stars but for the Staff I would give 5* every day. Without exception all of the staff at the bar, the restaurant and around the resort where always welcoming, warm and willing to have a little chat - this resorts staff are incredible. I apologise for the length of this review but hopefully it will help someone. THE ISLAND The island is no doubt beautiful and peaceful but suffering badly from erosion in places which make walking around the perimeter of the island tricky at some tides. Much has been said about the sandbags and they honestly are an eyesore at many locations but you can always find a part of the island to swim without them in your view, they will bother many guests but after the first couple of days I just ignored them. There is a lot of nature on the island, lots of birds, crabs, lizards and a couple of resident Bats. The sand is perfect for a bare foot holiday and mostly the island is clean. THE SEA/REEF The sea was much rougher than I had expected. Some of this is seasonable but the lack of breakwaters allows the waves up to the island. Some people will not like this and for young kids its not calm enough to leave them alone in the water. We stayed up near the sandbag breakwater and it created quite some current. A work of warning, when the tide is going out do not swim up to the breakwater, I got washed out through one of the gaps in the wall and the rip current was very very strong. Couple with the exposed metal rods this is dangerous for a less than good swimmer. The reef has collapsed near to the wall and frankly the snorkelling on island is woeful which is a shame. The resort snorkelling trip was amazing but this is the Maldives and you would expect a good house reef within an easy swim and there isn't really one to speak of. F&B Food at the buffet and Conch Bar was always fresh, always decent variety. If you are on all inclusive you are limited to non-Premium spirits for cocktails but this is a minor issue in my opinion. For some it will be a problem but I typically had a beer with lunch and a few glasses of wine and a G&T in the evening. ROOMS We stayed in a deluxe beach room and it was lovely. It has an outside bathroom so be careful to spray for insects but the room was quiet, aircon was cold, supplied daily with water and really comfy bed. Really nothing to complain about. DIVING I went on a few diving trips and the on-island dive centre is good. Some nice divemasters and the diving was OK. Actually saw more on the snorkelling trip which I really do recommend if you are a good swimmer. So, in short I would recommend a visit here but if you want a really good house reef and calm waters this may not be for you.

We recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing holiday at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu. We stayed in a deluxe beach villa which was spacious, clean and just a few steps from our own section of beach. Albeit narrow, our own stretch of beach was stunning and it felt like we had the whole island to ourselves! Our villas were adjacent to the Olive Ridley Project, where rescued turtles are rehabilitated before being released back into the ocean. It was great having the opportunity to see the turtles everyday; Clare, the vet, and her assistant Batts were extremely friendly and very helpful. It was a little breezy whilst we were there in early July, but this just made the heat more comfortable. It only rained a couple of times and tended to be late afternoon or evening (umbrellas are provided in the room). The food was consistently delicious at the main restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed the beach barbecue. The evening entertainment is low key, which was perfect for us. We enjoyed the film show on the beach, and the local band that played in the Conch bar were very good. This was our seventh visit to the Maldives, but the first time to Baa Atoll and Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu; I wouldn't hesitate to go back again!
