A magical island hideaway

Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is a Maldivian island resort that rests in the warm waters south of the Baa Atoll. Arriving by seaplane from Velana International Airport, you’ll see a white sand beach and lush greenery unfurl beneath you. Here you can relax by the edge of the startling blue lagoon, take a drink in the Conch Bar or treat yourself to a massage at Coco Spa. Couples will love the sense of being adrift from the world.

There’s plenty at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu to satisfy your lust for adventure, with water sports like power boating, diving and fishing available. Four bars and restaurants provide plenty of variation for mealtimes and sundowners. You can also spend a night on Embudhoo, your very own desert island. This tiny strip of sand and palms is home to single hut where you can live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasies. The resort’s chefs will pack a picnic to enjoy as you watch the sun set on a perfect day.

Top Tips from our Experts

Tina

Destination Specialist

"Wild dolphins are really easy to spot from most areas of the island, but especially at morning as the sun is coming up. Morning cruises are also available on selected days to go and see the Spinner dolphins."

Superb holiday

Lichfield, United Kingdom

Having just returned from Coco palm what a fabulous time we had. The food was excellent as were the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a Ocean beach villa and this was perfect for us. We were so sad to leave this beautiful place. On looking at two reviews left recently I have to wonder if they stayed at the same place. Anything you needed the staff went out of there way to assist. From Abul and staff at the beach bar to the numerous excellent staff in the Cowrie restaurant. Our cleaner came twice daily to our villa and always asked if we needed anything. This place to us was simply amazing and did not disappoint. We met some lovely people who equally enjoyed the place. Thank you all so much for making our holiday truly amazing ❤️

Good, bad, ripoff, beautiful.

Dymchurch, United Kingdom

Where to start. The good and beautiful. The island is a real desert island with amazing beaches, and views. Probably the best we have been to. Now the sad part. Man got involved and decided to overpriced everything in sight. You book all inclusive, but turn up and find it's not quite true. Very basic local drinks are, but want anything better than that, watch out. See the images of there drinks menus. Food, you have one restaurant included that has 5 varieties of food each day and you have a restaurant that you pay extra for, a lot extra. You are not aloud to take drinks from the bar to your room and you only get 6 soft drinks and two bottles of water between 2 every 24 hours in your mini bar. You can of course buy alcohol for your room, $216 for Smirnoff or bacardi. Trips / excursions are well overpriced and anything you do buy does not include tax. Well tax plus tax. 10% first tax then another 12% local tax. So like the title says, good, bad, ripoff, beautiful.
