Reviews for Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, Maldives
We stayed in October for 2 weeks (late review because itâs been hectic since we came home). This was our third time at this island and fifth holiday in the Maldives. We went all inclusive in a sunset beach villa. We love this island and keep coming back. Its best points for us are that it is small and has the âprivate islandâ feel, the staff are all very friendly and welcoming, the food is excellent and very varied, and the snorkelling is very good. With only 98 villas on the island it often looks as if there is no one else on it. Guests and staff get to know each other very quickly and the staff are always very friendly and helpful. Nagis was our housekeeper again this year and was just as friendly and helpful. We stayed in sunset beach villa 14 and then moved to 16 (our favourite because of the location â halfway between the beach bar and the north beach snorkelling). The quality and variety of food in the restaurant is excellent thanks to Faiz, the head chef, and his team. Faiz is very friendly and lovely to chat to. I need good snorkelling to keep me entertained and Coco Palm DK has 2 main areas to visit the colourful tropical fish, the turtles and black tip sharks etc. The first area is off the north beach by the lagoon villas beyond the sea defence wall where the reef drops into the deep sea. As with anywhere else in the Indian ocean fins are essential to swim against the current. The second area is off the east beach out to the reef edge. Both areas offer a great variety of marine life to see while floating in the warm tropical sea. Several times we exchanged our lunch in the main Cowrie restaurant for a delicious a la carte lunch in the Conch bar where Raj always gave us a friendly welcome. The turtle sanctuary is up and running this year where turtles injured in fishing nets are nursed until they can be released again. Itâs fantastic to see these wonderful creatures close up. We took 2 trips while we were there. The first was a sunset fishing trip which was great fun line fishing over the side of the boat. The second was a jet ski tour over to an uninhabited island to snorkel around the reef and see turtles, dolphins and endless tropical fish. With 3 nights left of our holiday the staff were kind enough to upgrade us to a lagoon villa for the rest of our stay. Not just A lagoon villa but the largest one, No. 101, right at the end with large decking area with sunken pool, big bedroom, TV lounge and study! The steps into the sea are idea for instant access to the lagoon and at night the lights attract stingrays and small black tip sharks as evening entertainment. We loved staying in this villa and would like to thank Coco Palm for treating us before we, regretfully, had to leave.

The island is made of magic â„ïž Beaches were out of this world (and I've visited many beautiful tropical beaches; these are in another league), relaxed and peaceful energy, wildlife and jungle and the feeling you have really escaped the real world. The only thing we found disappointing was the vegetarian selection at dinner. I'm not being unfair in describing it as very poor. Every dish was either meat or fish, and even things like fajitas already had chicken mixed in with the vegetables, which meant they couldn't be amended to veggie! One night I asked the chef what we could have, he said 'pasta, rice, or mashed potato' (!!). I asked what they could make us as this wouldn't suffice and give them their due, they did make us two omelettes which was appreciated. What we did eat was very good quality, however we would highly recommend that vegetarian options are not an afterthought as we dreaded dinner every night worrying about having to ask for something 'special' and having limited choice (and missing out on all the delicious Maldivian curries!!) Other than that this place was a dream come true. Yes the sandbags may be an issue for some, but we understand they are necessary due to climate change/erosion and they didn't impact on our stay at all. This place is really a tropical paradise and I would recommend it to anyone wanting peace, privacy and romance â€ïž

Cocopalm is a small and beautiful Island. We had a greatful stay and a lot of privacy. Everyone was really nice and the food was lovely. The lagoon Villa No 91 was comfortable and clean. We had no Problems with Moskitos or other animals. In the evening we have seen stingrays and sharks. For us the stay was perfect and we would go back immediatelly.
This is a beautiful, small island, made more interesting by the creation of small, winding, tree lined and secluded pathways that lead you to your very own private view of the dazzling Indian Ocean. The food was lovely, varied and plentiful, and the staff friendly and helpful. Nagis (our room cleaner) was always cheerful and did a great job for us. The dive centre was professional and there was a good variety of dive sites on offer. The turtle sanctuary are doing great work with rescued and damaged turtles and is well worth a visit.

Me and my wife decided to make our 6th visit to the Maldives, and after a "bit of choosing", opted for Coco Palm DK, a good looking mid-price resort. Arrived Sunday morning with Air France, our sea plane transfer was booked by mistake with an Emirates flight, arriving in the afternoon ( a booking error from the resort ); after a while it was sorted and we proceeded to Coco Palm. On arrival people were kind as expected, and we were taken to the reception were we, first of all, paid our all inclusive bill; after that we were taken to our room. Internet wifi was provided and throughout the week it was excellent; fast and available all around the island. We stayed in Lagoon Villa nÂș 91, an exceptional room; simple, old style, very comfortable. Nice wide bed, comfortable mattress and mosquito nets around it; efficient air conditioning made it an even nicer retreat. Mini bar available ( drinks highly priced as expected and out of the "all inclusive meal plan"; 375ml of Bombay Gin costed 40 USD, as an example ). 2 bottles of local water, coffee ( Nespresso ! ) and tea were available free everyday. Regarding the room, and knowing we were in a tropical island, the only thing we can point is a couple of cockroaches we spotted around and had to kill; but, apart from that the room was well kept and clean. Outside the room, the ladder accessing the sea should have been replaced because it was in a very poor condition. Our first meal was at Cowrie's restaurant, the main one; and we had most of our meals there for the rest of our week. In TripAdvisor people commented food from poor to excellent; our opinion is that it was regular, with a lot of good and not so good dishes, nothing that bothered us. One common complaint is that if are on an "all inclusive" plan, and if you order wine, you don't get a bottle to your table, instead you keep asking for wine glasses; it was true, but it did not really bothered us. Some of the waiters and cooks are nicer, some are not; but, that is true for all around the world, and again, it did not bother us. Next day, Monday, we had a pretty nice day, doing some snorkelling and straying at the beach. The best, although poor, snorkelling, is at the eastern part of the island; most of the coral is dead, and there is not much of sealife to see. There is a snorkelling excursion available but we did not took it. I would not recommend a beach bungalow at this part of Coco Palm for two reasons; "sand erosion" is much more noticeable here than other parts of the island, and from these it is not easy to have a "simple" sea dive because in front of many of them, there are just rocks and coral. Drinks and finger food at Conch bar were not disappointing, as were drinks at he Beach Bar; although drinks included in the "all inclusive plan" could easily be much better than offered. Later on the week we dinned at Cornus restaurant, the only dinning alternative; it was ok, meaning average. One really great thing is that we had the impression that the island was almost empty; this opinion was also shared by some of the guests comments I've read before on Tripadvisor. Tuesday morning, my wife woke up to realise she looked as she was bitten by some kind of bug during the night, and she had a bit of an exacerbated allergic local reaction. I am a Surgeon, but as we were going to a resort Idid not bring along a lot of medication; so, I had to look for further medical attention. At Coco Spa there is a Nursing facility were the staff nurse gave us some antihistaminic pills and a steroid cream; I thought it would be sufficient as my wife did not get worse, and the rest of the day was uneventful. Next morning she woke up completely swollen, from her face to the feet; I realised that we urgently needed some other medical facility than the nurse office at the island, and we walked to the nursing facility for guidance. During this short walk from Lagoon Villa 91, my wife had some shortness of breath, a sign of "SERIOUSNESS" OF AN ALLERGIC REACTION. Immediately after meeting the staff nurse we were transferred by speed boat to an island just in front of Coco Palm, were we received medical attention, in a facility called the "Baa Tulhaadhoo Health Centre"; after a brief medical consultation some intravenous steroids and intramuscular antihistaminics were administered, and slowly, she starting breathing better. After a couple of hours, by noon, we returned to Coco Palm, by speed boat; my wife slept for the whole afternoon, while I was keeping an eye on her. Until dinner time no one from management contacted us in order to know if we needed anything further. Around 7.30pm I asked to see the general manager, Brendan Corcoran, that we have not met before. After finishing a Welcome Cocktail he was attending, Mr. Corcoran came to have a word with us; he then explained that during the night, if my wife's condition worsened, the only option the resort was able to provide us was a 30-40 minute speed boat transfer to another island, supposedly better equipped than this first one, because sea planes do not fly during the night ( they "don't have radars" and fly "on sight", as Mr. Corcoran explained us ). There are no other means of urgent transfer available, Mr. Corcoran stated. Other option suggested by the manager was a next day transfer to another resort, closer to MalĂ©. So far we felt we've had no support from hotel management, and, if further needed, the options we were provided with, could be life-threatening in case my wife's allergic reaction worsened, The next day she was better, and thankfully, our next days were uneventful. So, our overall impression is: - the Lagoon Villas are very nice - Internet connection is fast and everywhere - we had the feeling of being almost alone in the island, although there were several other guests - service is median; "all inclusive plan" could easily be better - amongst other possible comments on the management we believe that the care taken in some small details is not in some rather more important ones. Would we come back ? - perhaps, but only if there were a full time medical facility in the island and if a more efficient health rescue plan was established. Best regards, Joao & Joana
