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."

Wonderful relaxing island

Chigwell, United Kingdom

What can I say re this island and resort - so we had issues getting there due to a massive down poor in male on la ding from Colombo so sea plane transfer was cancelled after a 5 hour wait and see period. Was transferred finally to coco palm sister island by speed boat for one hour which was a wonderful resort. Finally arrived at coco palm by 3pm the following day and wow that seaplane journey was fantastic. Got a boat from another nearby island to coco palm and as soon as we got off saw a sting ray. Wonderful welcome and shown to our room. Was given an upgrade to sunset beach. Room was set back and not actually on the beach but had a large piece of sand in front of it. I would say room was quite basic but so charming. I liked the outside bathroom but understand may not be for everyone. Room keeping was excellent - cleaned twice a day. Staff in the restaurant were wonderful. So friendly and the chef would cook our daughter something special if nothing on offer that she fancied. I cannot fault the food at all or the drinks on the ai option. The choice at breakfast, lunch and evening was excellent. The chefs were proud of their food and had a passion for it and that showed. We did the bbq on the beach one night as an extra and the food again was excellent but felt the price was a bit on the high side. We saw so much sea life. Dolphin was right by us in the sea on two ocassions which was magical. The manger of the resort was also excellent. I had a few issues with how wee treated at the sister island and he went above and beyond to rectify this. He very kindly allowed us to have one night complimentary in an over the water bungalow. These r lovely and more spacious but for us three nights would be enough as we prefer to be nearer the beach or right on the beach. There r lights underneath the bungalows that light up the sea at night and we saw so much in this area in the 24 hours. As we were given late check out they then Moved us to a delux bungalow on the east side of the island. If I went back we would probably prefer to stay on this side for the snorkelling. There r some bungalows right on the beach with fantastic sea views which we liked the look of. As for the turtle sanctuary on the island - another reason why we chose this. They do such valuable work to save injured turtles and then hopefully release them. They also try to teach locals not to eat them and how old fishing nets are a massive hazzard for them. The staff that work at the sanctuary r so passionate about their work. The island was exactly what we wanted definitely as advertised ..... barefoot luxury and we would return and can recommend as long as you r happy not to have a large pool to swim in and to swim in the sea. My advice if going to the Maldives is to pick ur island carefully and make sure the island you pick is the right one for you. We did our homework and got the perfect island for us. Laid back, relaxed, chilled with excellent customer care. Some of the islands offer more of a party vibe which is not for us and others r more dressy in the evening. This island was perfect for what we wanted.
