A lovely gem of an island

Review by AdrianSki2fly Colyford, United Kingdom

Our visit to Coco Palm was our 5th visit to the Maldives over the past 36 years, and we have seen a lot of changes in that time, not necessarily for the better. Coco Palm DhuniKohlu has thankfully kept a traditional feel, with good quality villas that are very comfortable to stay in.

The island is lovely, beautiful beaches, with a very relaxed with an informal atmosphere, it really has a dessert island feel, arrive kick off your shoes and never put them back on, that's it, just what we love...

The island is a great size taken about a 40-50 minute lazy stroll to walk around on the beach, we did this at least once a day taking dips in the sea along the way, stopping off at the bar for a refreshing drink. We loved relaxing at the beach bar in the early evening to watch the sunset, just fabulous.

The Beach Villas are all of a good size the only differences we could ascertain is that the Luxury ones are slightly larger with a bath plunge pool, there are a few with a front plunge pool by the beach. The standard Beach Villas are pretty generous in size and ours was very comfortable.

One thing to note is that the island has some beach erosion as others have mentioned, sadly this is the case with many of the islands now. However this is being very well dealt with by strategically putting in large sand bag groins that become buried by the sand and stop further erosion. Due to this the Luxury Beach Villa we initially were given had limited beach at high tide, we asked to be moved to one with more beach and the next morning when one became available we were moved, the staff asked us to check we were happy with it first. All the staff are friendly, very helpful and accommodating.

The food at Coco Palm is the best we have had in the Maldives and one of the best in 36 years of long haul holidays. The all inclusive package is excellent, it is a buffet lunch and dinner, but the quality of the food exceeds a normal buffet. Nearly all the hot food is cooked fresh as you request it, and there is good variety every day. The quality of the cold food and salads is excellent with at least one sushi type fish dish available. What we really liked is that only smaller quantities are put out and these are regularly refreshed so the standard and quality remains high though out the service. We could not really fault the food at all. The waiting staff and chefs were very attentive and excellent.

We will be returning hopefully on 2023

Excellent resort 👌

We have just returned from a week at Coco and I have to say this resort was amazing. Upon arrival until we left all the staff were very friendly and helpful but it didn't feel like it was manufactured, they are genuinely friendly and happy people. We spoke with one of the managers on the last day and he explained their ethos is if their staff are happy then their guests will be happy too and that certainly resonates across the resort...

The food is amazing with many themed nights and gorgeous currys. We loved the intimacy of the island as it's not a huge resort so it didn't feel commercialised. The resort is also working hard to be eco friendly and sustainable. They produce their own water and have no plastic on the island. Whilst we were there they celebrated world environmental s Day and we got to plant one of the 100 trees they planted on that day. We managed a couple of excursions one being snorkeling for turtles. All excursions were very well managed and we were accompanied by the Turtle Sancturys marine biologist who was very informative. The turtle sanctuary is a must if you visit this resort, they are doing some great work to protect and help these gracious creatures. In conclusion, we had a wonderful week In paradise and have no hesitation in recommending this resort.

1st holiday in three years ( Booked in October 2019, then covid struck)

Review by X8677QYjohnh Bolton, United Kingdom

These are my personal views to help people draw there own conclusions on the good and not so good points of Coco palm, Dhuni Kolhu. This is my third trip to the Maldives, 1st Royal island, 2nd Kuredu and now Coco Island, I fire from the hip saying as it is (not to offend people) but give the truth as I see it. Holiday booked before covid struck the world and put off two years running. 12 nights, beach villa, room 41, all inclusive. Greeting to island, very nice with reception very nice, could do with the roof fans on more The Island: Absolutely beautiful 10/10, the greenery, layout and different foliage was a joy to walk through daily and well maintained. The staff: Excellent 10/10, I could not fault one person, all polite, all smiling, if a problem arose it was sorted...

Special praise should go to all, but a few made the holiday become what it was, Sushanta, Sakkara, Jyoti = F&B, Ashmita & Shara from the kitchen, with Jegan from the front office. 👏👏👏 The Spa, Outstanding ( I don’t use words like this often) 10/10 best one I have been too, I don’t really like massages, I do it for the wife, excellent facilities especially the jacuzzi afterwards (ask for jacuzzi after massage or you will miss out) Beach villa: room 41 I could not have asked for better, slightly secluded, practically on the beach, placement and amenities of the room were great for me 9/10, lost a mark due to mosquito net around and over bed had quite a few holes in it? Cleanliness of villa 7/10, clean towels daily, cleaned room daily, anything can aesthetically be made to look good but start digging and mmmmmmmmm, the floor needs a damn good steam clean, and as for the lamp shades on the wall and the standard light I might as well have been in captain Jack Sparrows cabin. ( Change them guys) Food, now I like my food and will not put up with poor quality or poor service anywhere when I am spending my hard earned pennies. Lunch 10/10 lovely, visited 4/12 days, evening meal 10/10 just excellent I looked forward to this every night, it hit my taste buds perfectly, Conch bar snacks mid afternoon for all inclusive 3/10 (needs revisiting guys) = poor, Breakfast mmmmmmmmmm I saved this till last, I just can’t get past 6/10 (maybe it’s me) I felt eggs were poor quality, layout could be a lot better, fruit juice poor quality only three per sitting in containers from the 1970s, as for the cheese container, please guys bin it and get something far better from the era of 2022, (continental meats might not go amiss, butter in the croissants might help) Conch bar/ beach bar, both nice, good service, just poor cocktails due to rubbish spirits being used for all inclusive, you could always pay 12 dollars per drink with premium spirits and premium additives, needless to say I didn’t. Beach bar at 1900 hours was great for your sunsets. Conch bar needs it white lamp shades in the ceiling changing, they are filthy. (I should not be picking up on items like this) The weather was awesome all holiday even though we are supposed to be in the rainy season, only one afternoon did it rain for about an hour, other rain was at night when you were in bed, nature was being very convenient there. The sea, mmmmmmmmmm when I book a holiday like the Maldives it is for three basic things all of which have equal rating, weather, relaxation & snorkelling, 2 out of three met, first time in Maldives I have been disappointed with snorkelling, maybe time of year with tides etc, but the sea was not clear, a lot of silt, coral bleached and dead in vast swathes of the sea, the sea looked perfect with different shades of turquoise blues, but it wasn’t until you snorkelled did you see a different picture, yes there are fish, I saw turtles but the clarity of the water was poor with dirt on the top also, I have snorkelled in the Caribbean, Egypt, previous Maldives, the most disappointed I have been. Turtle sanctuary 10/10 for what they are doing, many turtles with only 3 flippers due to entanglements in ghost nets, I wish I was there in July to see the hatching of buried turtle nests, that should be lovely.

Items to consider: no rooms on the island have T.Vs, they do have WIFi. No swimming pool on the island, the sea is all around it. All inclusive fridge in room only has soft drinks, no beer.

On booking the holiday two and a half years ago I’m sure coco palm was 4 star plus, now you will see it is 4 star, my review is 5 stars for my holiday! The facilities are just 4 star, there has been a lack of investment into all facilities on the island = quite visible (maybe covid is partially to blame) you can see investment restarting, but the island has so much to offer and with the right vision could even get to 5 star in about 2 years, but there has to be a focus to do this, you have Mother Nature, you have fantastic staff, you must put more money into all areas if you want to move the island forward, you have under utilised facilities on the island that can be bought to life.

Thank all the staff please for a nice holiday as without them you would not have got 5 trip advisor stars.

If the investment company for this island would like to hear my ideas please feel free to contact me on a consultancy basis.

I always sign off with would I go back, maybe in 5 years for maximum 9 nights as 12 was too long and then it must have a swimming pool.

Regards John

First Time Maldives

Review by fschenk2022 Rust, Germany

It was my first time traveling to the Maldives but certainly not my last time at Coco Palm. From the moment of our arrival until the day of our departure it was service of the highest level. We made a lot of new friends with the staff and we’re looking forward to see everybody again soon.

TripAdvisor Review

Relax completely

We had the most chilled week possible. Everything and everyone on the island made us smile. Our beach villa was comfortable, cool and clean...

I thought there might be mosquitoes, but the report mists regularly so there is no problem. Would love to come back. Thank you.
