Fine but would not return
We had a nice time and there are positives about this resort but ultimately we would not return. Spa was very good, the room was fine but you must check out which one you are going to get because a lot of the beach villas don't actually have any beach!! the sea comes right up to the garden area which is a real shame. The food was probably the most disappointing thing. Very average buffet every day. Service was also good but you would expect that in the Maldives and when paying these prices. Reef was relatively average (certainly compared to the Baa Atoll where we went 2 years ago) Transfers (by boat) all worked out well so no issue with the efficiency side of things. So, in summary, good but not great when you consider the Maldives should be a 'once in a lifetime' kind of thing.
Couldn't have imagined a better honeymoon!
We stayed in a Escape Water Villa (over-water bungalow). Lack of better words, all I can say is WOW! Where do I begin with this amazing experience... **Accommodation**- What a beautiful over water villa we had (room 621). Very spacious with our own living room, spacious master bedroom, HUGE bathroom with shower and separate area with romantic tub. Also a spacious private outdoor shower. Our Villa also included our own private infinity pool, pergola with two comfortable retractable chairs, and another 2 lounge chairs for sunbathing and 2 bean bags. Take a few steps down from our deck and you can jump into the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. We basically had our very own reef to snorkel which was massive. The hotel supplied us each with complimentary fins and snorkel headset to hold throughout our stay. All areas of the the villa (living room, bedroom, bathroom) had glass barn doors to access our private outdoor space. Many things were included in the accommodation such as daily coffee, bottled water, mini bar (separate cost) that can be refreshed daily upon your request, umbrellas, flat screen Samsung tv (living room which I never used), plenty of electrical outlets, WiFi was FANTASTIC! We were preparing to have minimal to no WiFi access. The connection was so great it felt like I was at home. WiFi access along the whole island. A/C was perfect and as strong as I chose it to be. **Restaurants**- There are several dining options on property such as Starbar restaurant which was closest to our villa. We had breakfast there every morning. Other areas we dined were Tsuki (Japanese), Air (buffet), Aqua (seafood), Latitude (little bit of everything, great for lunch). There might be more restaurants but these were the only ones we made it to. We spent one night with a private pergola dinner (5 courses) on the sand watching the sunset. What an amazing experience that was, well worth it! **Staff**- They truly made our experience so unforgettable. We have been fortunate to travel around the world. They really take hospitality to another level. Our personal concierge Nizam was nothing short of OUTSTANDING. He was easily accessible and very pleasant to have a conversation with. There was never once when we tried to call him and didn't answer the phone. Believe me I called him a few times per day for a bucket of ice. With the sun we were getting, ice buckets were melting quickly outside LOL. His punctuality was perfect with all of our experiences (private beach cinema, beach side pergola dinner, Turtle point snorkeling, private sandbank picnic). Should any guest have the option of requesting a specific personal concierge, without hesitation and full confidence I strongly suggest to request Nizam!!! Adam (housekeeping) was our personal attendant and was great! Always greeted us with a smile and made sure we had everything we needed in our villa.... Bruno (Starbar restaurant server) was also very pleasant and welcoming each morning and throughout the day. He was our daily server for breakfast. Very funny guy, his nickname is Bruno because he must be a doppelganger of Bruno Mars!... Mustafah (front desk) was also EXTREMELY helpful. Due to the pandemic of the Coronavirus our honeymoon was cut short as our next stop after the Maldives was going to be Bali. However we were forced to cancel that flight and to rebook our flight home. Due to travel patterns we needed to extend our stay by one night. Mustafah showed great compassion and provided us a generous rate for a 1 night extension. He also felt bad our honeymoon was being cut short and provided us a complimentary dinner on our extended night. We are grateful for Mustafah's generosity. Another helpful tip when booking Coco Bodu Hithi. Upon landing in Male, the property is easy to coordinate a speedboat ride to the property from the airport. It's a nice 40 minute speedboat ride. Once you have picked up you luggage from baggage claim and get to the Coco Bodu Hithi kiosk. They take all your luggage from that point and load it onto the speedboat. They were waiting on 1 more couple to arrive. We waited in the food court for maybe 10 minutes. The Coco Bodu employee came to get us at the food court once the speedboat was ready to depart. Looking for an amazing resort in the Maldives for an over the top experience could seem overwhelming. Should this review provide you all the details you seek, than you can stop that search and select Coco Bodu Hithi as your Maldives island experience!!! Thank you Coco Bodu Hithi as we will never forget our honeymoon experience and hope to revisit one day :) Sincerely, Delwin & Anneliese Liranzo ( Miami, FL), room 621
Me encanta!Absolutely amazing! I Traveled in December 2019 to celebrate my bday with my husband. We decided to go with the island villa and it was brilliant. The entire resort and island infact is the most beautiful place i have ever been too. The place is breathtaking not just because of the place but also the people. Feldus - One of the manager was so good to us and was the best host. In his busy schedule , he took time and effort to educate us about the resort and their eco friendly practices which was really good! Their hospitality is something else entirely. They have n Inhouse Marine biologist. The ever smiling and extremely capable Aida. The snorkel experience was out of this world all thanks to her who paid extra care and attention to my husband who is not very comfortable with water. They were so friendly with us and stayed with us till we left the island! Thanks Aida for the coconut leave crown you made
Beautiful view and excellent hospitality
Ocean view is beautiful and excellent everywhere. Sunset view at room is impressive. Room is spacious,comfortable and cleanly. All staffs are friendly. Especially room cleaner and restaurant staff are very hospitable.
Love, love, loved our stay here! Service and attention to deal was excellent from start...welcome...to finish...speedboat and accompany to airport checkin. Special mention to Rishwan, Housekeeping for our Villa and Misru, our waiter at breakfast. Our private villa was superb. Food and service at Stars restaurant and Aqua restaurant was excellent. Only slight criticism would be the spa was very expensive; but we did one of their offers and took advantage of the complimentary Jacuzzi etc and it was lovely. The website doesn't do the resort justice. Excellent value for money compared to other Maldives resorts for the standard of the Villas, excellent service and choice of dining options. Very highly recommended!
