Coco Bodu Hithi is a luxurious, contemporary holiday destination, situated in North Male Atoll. This 5-star resort boasts luscious vegetation, coconut trees and picture-perfect beaches. It also offers one of the Islands’ best locations to spot huge pods of dolphins and diverse marine life, including Manta Rays, black-tip reef Sharks and Turtles and is, therefore, a popular choice with keen nature enthusiasts. This is also a particularly good option for Honeymooners due to the excellent special offers specifically for honeymoon guests. We love the Island Villas here - each one comes with its own private pool and lots of outdoor lounging space.
A gorgeous island with a contemporary, luxury vibe set in the heart of the Maldives. Luxurious accommodation includes a private pool with every room, a choice of five restaurants and two bars and good snorkelling on the house reef. Excellent value for such a high quality resort and a particularly good choice for Honeymooners.
Coco is situated on the private island of Bodu Hithi in North Male Atoll, a 40 minutes speedboat transfer from Male International Airport. Speedboats can operate at any time of day or night and therefore provides more flexibility than seaplanes which can only fly during daylight hours.
A total of 100 stunning Villas. Choose from 44 stylish Island Villas and 56 Water Villas divided into three categories.
