TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 week ago

My wife and I booked the Lagoon villa for 6 nights. We were very excited to visit coco palm for our honeymoon and it was an amazing experience with a few unfortunate let downs. On arrival to the local airport we were taken to our island on a speed boat. Once we had reached the island, we saw a person standing on shore to welcome us and take us to the reception area. However he seemed to be in a rush and did not wait for us to get off the boat, as a result were left behind. We eventually found out that this person was actually the general manager named Anthony. Once we found our way to the reception we were greeted by a member of staff who briefly gave us an overview of the restaurants and facilities, I advised her that my wife was pregnant. We then got escorted to our lagoon villa. We were impressed with our water villa, which was large and had its own pool, it was picture perfect and had unique touches for honeymooners. One downside to having booked one of the most expensive rooms on the island was that is was the furthest away from the restaurants or bar area and it took 15mins on average to get from the room the ‘all inclusive’ food and drink area. The resort has 3 restaurants, first one is the 'Cowrie' where buffet is served 3 times a day. They have different cuisines daily so you won't feel like you're eating the same food everyday. The second restaurant is Thai, nice food but expensive. The last one is the 'Conch bar' where you can drink and eat, again food was very good standard with great service. Now, if you're 'All inclusive' you are entitled to food credit for the last two restaurants mentioned which we did not know until we were advised by the staffs at the Conch bar. We also did not know until 2 days into our stay that coco palm was 1 hour ahead to Male, which again we were advised by a member of staff in the bar. We felt like such information should have been made aware of on the day of our arrival. The island was beautiful, had a relaxed atmosphere, the staff in the restaurants and conch bar were caring and always ready to help. One of the chefs (Krishna) knew my wife was pregnant and not eating much so he proactively cut up fruits and brought it to our table, which was very thoughtful. The boys in the conch bar, too many to name again were very kind. On one of the days my wife stayed in the room as she was feeling sick, asked after her. We spend most of our time at the Conch as the staffs were very accommodating. Conch bar manager Raj and the bar tender Shan are real credit to this resort. However we did also have a negative experience on our nearly perfect trip On the day of arrival we tried two different types of waters, one maldivian bottled water (which we were given on the speed boat to the island) and the other local cocopalm dhuni kolhu water (seawater refined at cocopalm) which was supplied in our rooms and the restaurant in glass bottles. I could taste that there was a difference to the mineral water we are used to in UK i.e it has a slight bitter after taste but this did not bother me and I was happy to drink during our stay. However as mentioned earlier, my wife was 3 months pregnant and with a heightened sense of taste and smell did not tolerate the two water options given as it made her feel unwell. Since we were ‘all inclusive’ and my wife was pregnant, not tolerating the water options and obviously not drinking any alcohol, I kindly asked the supervisor Marija (Maria) whether we can get a discount as were planning on buying at least one bottle of $9 evian mineral water (750ml) a day for my wife. Her response to this was that she apparently had to ask the ‘beverage department but she knew what the answer was going to be already and replied nothing can be done’. We were taken aback by her attitude. For a person in charge she wasn’t warm or welcoming and her abrupt response was as though we asked her for free water. We tried to not let this affect our stay and carried on with our day. The following day she did get back to us when we walked through reception and her response was, I quote, “We can not do anything, Evian is the most expensive bottle of water and we ALL drink this Maldivian water and it is fine for us, ” I was obviously angry and insulted, not only at her but the person above her , Anthony the GM whom she said had the authority to make these decisions. I realised, it was pointless talking to these inconsiderate people in charge and bought the evian water bottles regardless as I can not let my wife be dehydrated in such circumstances. Overall the management is a letdown to this beautiful place, but the local people (staffs in restaurants and bar) are amazing, always smiling, caring and welcoming.

We flew with Ethiad from Manchester to Male in the Maldives via Abu Dhabi and everything went smoothly. We uprgaded to a sea plane and our 7 day holiday at Coco Collection Dhuni Kolhu in the Baa Atoll, Maldives was a dream. We uprgaded to a sea plane transfer and our 7 day holiday at Coco Collection Dhuni Kolhu in the Baa Atoll, Maldives was a dream from start to finish. The food was excellent and we could not fault the service. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all excellent - lots of choice and thankfully, no chips in sight. Loads of fresh fish, salad, fruit etc, healthy and tasty food and the cocktails in the bar were fabulous too. Our accommodation was stunning and in a superb location. We paid to upgrade to a beach villa, but were very kindly upgraded to a Deluxe Beach Villa which had it's own plunge pool (as shown in the picture) and it was just steps away from the sea and the house reef. The outdoor bathrooms are incredible and I loved nipping to the loo in the middle of the night and watching all the Geckos take cover as soon as the light came on. We loved the Olive Ridley sea turtle rescue centre located in the centre of the island, and loved seeing the turtles at feeding time and finding out more about their unfortunate injuries caused by ghost nets. We were left slightly disappointed by the diversity of the house reef which (compared to my previous trip to the Maldives) was not as good as I've experienced before, so I'd rate the house reef as good rather than great. I spent hours snorkelling every day, and did a dive with Dive Ocean on the house reef too. The dive was great and over the course of the week I saw reef sharks, stingrays, a Moray Eel, Lionfish, Parrotfish, Butterfly Fish, Lagoon and Titan Triggerfish...plenty of stunning marine life. The waves crashing just outside of the lagoon did result in some pretty strong currents close to the shore. I'm a hefty lass and a few steps into the sea, the waves although very small were much stronger than I remember them being last time I was in the Maldives (different island). My partner who isn't a strong swimmer only felt confident swimming near the water villas where the waves were much more gentle. It's worth noting while we were there Cyclone Francis was only a few hundred miles away, so we think this could have been the reason. The weather was stunning between 30 and 32 degrees every single day. We had some rain on the second night overnight and that was it. Blue skies and very hot every day - perfect! We'd not hesitate returning to the Maldives at that time of year, despite it being the Monsoon shoulder season. Whilst I had hoped to swim with Mata Rays (and I chose Dhuni Kolhu precisely for that reason), but when I booked my dive at Dive Ocean on the island, I was told there had been no Mata Rays spotted for a month, so I didn't expect to see one at all. When we went on the sunset cruise however we heard a shout of "Manta, Manta, Manta!" and the boat engine cut off and there in the water right beside the boat was a stunning Manta Ray. It was literally one of the most magical moments of my life. As well as the marine life, I loved seeing giant fruitbats flying around. They are so adorably cute, so seeing them in the trees was a real bonus and watching crabs dig their little nests on the beach every evening is also fun to watch as they fling sand out. The holiday was absolutely wonderful, perfect in fact. I would thoroughly recommend Coco Collection Dhuni Kolhu. My only complaint is that we couldn't afford to stay there for longer than 1 week! A huge thank you to the whole team for making it such a fantastic, stress-free holiday.

We have just returned from 2 weeks on the Island. Firstly the food was very good, the best All inclusive buffet we have had in the Maldives. The drinks that were included in the All Inclusive were also very good. Thanks to Abul and Anis at the beach bar for keeping us topped up once it was Beer o Clock. My first impression of the Villa left me a little disappointed as we were looking at dozens and dozens of sand bags stacked outside the villa trying to keep the sea from washing away the beach and gardens. But in the end I grew to love our little Villa which was in a good position to snorkel. That brings me to our only disappointment - The House Reef was very poor compared to other islands we have stayed at. While we did see most of what you expect to see in the Maldives they were very rare sightings indeed (2 Turtles in 2 weeks) and it is for that reason that we would not return to this resort. If you don't want to snorkel but just want a peaceful holiday with a really good All Inclusive package then don't hesitate to book this Island however, if you really want to enjoy the wonderful Sea Life that the Maldives offers then I would suggest that you choose another resort.

It was an excellent stay. We had spent some time planning our trip to Maldives/ Coco Palm and it did pay off. After being to several nice islands and beaches before we have become fussy when it comes to tropical holidays. We were probably those more demanding visitors coming with high expectations, but I need to say we were not disappointed. The island is beautiful, the eco resort is well managed, and our many requests were well attended to. Big thanks to Maria and Anthony for doing great job and making sure customers are happy. Our favourite activity was going to a picnic island for a day. It's great snorkeling there besides relaxing time on our own. We had great weather, like we prayed for, even though we went at the beginning of wet season. We have already recommended this place to a few friends.. and we will be back too :)
