Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu

A magical island hideaway

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.

Relax

Thank you Siraj and your fantastic team for making our stay so memorable. coco palm ticked all the boxes for us. It really is a little gem of a island. We're so glad that we disregarded the negative reviews because we really had a holiday of a lifetime. The accommodation and food was first class. We found the AI option to be problem free with more than enough choice to satisfy our requirements. Don't bother bringing any shoes apart from the ones you arrive in. We didn't wear any for the entire 9 days we spent there. Although the resort was at capacity we rarely saw more than a handful of people on the beaches and the staff made you feel that you were the most important guest they had met. We were celebrating my 60th birthday and our 35th wedding anniversary and we were spoiled by the generosity of management from celebratory cakes and a bottle of bubbly in the villa to beautifully decorated bed and dining table. From speaking to other guests this was something of a regular thing as all us us seemed to have been spoiled. I could go on forever. I know that you can't please everyone but please go with your instinct like we did and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Special thanks to Naswan for getting us to the island. Too many others to list without offending someone if I leave them out. Barry and Linda

Enjoy the little island

We had a great time at this island. The people are very friendly, we had some nice guys. For example Shihan is a very friendly guy at water sports and we booked a snorkeling tour. He drove us to some nice spots and we saw soooo many dolphins and four mantas. He took our water camera and took some videos of the manta that was very nice. Zen is also a very friendly guy he has so much fun at work and we were so happy to have him at the restaurant. We stayed in two of the deluxe villas and they are very private, this was very good. Greetings
