The Coco Collection: Luxury Retreats In The Maldives

Eliza Scarborough   |   16-06-2017

Created in 2007, Coco Collection includes Coco Privé, Coco Resorts: Retreats, and Coco Palm, all retreats of luxury in the Maldives. Every element of Coco Collection meets the highest standards, from the choice of cuisine to the unique experiences offered, from the traditionally inspired architecture, to the respect shown for Maldivian culture. Because the resorts, hotels and retreats are adapted to suit the environment, no two locations are the same with each destination offering a naturally unique experience.

Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu

Tranquil and serene, a beautifully natural luxury hideaway.

One of the Maldives’ most natural resorts, this is an island that looks after its environment, with a beautiful wide beach to the front of the island. Dotted among palm trees or on stilts over the lagoon, there are 98 delightful thatched villas, inspired by traditional Maldivian architecture, providing complete tranquillity and spectacular views.

There are plenty of dining choices, with either Cowrie Restaurant, a large buffet-style dining room, Cornus Restaurant, hidden amongst the vegetation, for à la carte dining, or Cornus Grill where you can enjoy freshly grilled seafood in an open-air setting.

Coco Bodu Hithi

Luxurious and contemporary, with superb private pool villas and an idyllic overwater spa.

Based in the North Malé Atoll, this resort offers a sensory kaleidoscope made up of pristine beaches, swaying palms trees and coral reef gardens. With its white sands and crystal-clear waters, Coco Bodu Hithi is visually stunning, but the facilities are glorious too. Sand paths around the island lead to a cool infinity pool, extensive thatched overwater spa and a variety of chic restaurants. Air is the elegant all-day dining restaurant with views of the infinity pool, while the romantic overwater Aqua serves up seafood specialties with Asian flavours, and Tsuki is an authentic sushi bar.

Villas are superbly spacious and all come with their own private pool. There’s just one room type on the island itself, the excellent Island Villas, which have a private courtyard with pool and a huge circular bathtub in the middle of the room. The rest of the villas here are overwater. Water Villas and Escape Water Villas, with a separate living room, are off one long jetty, while Coco Residences have their own separate oval jetty at the other end of the island.
