The Review

From the moment you board the gleaming speedboat that whisks you from Malé’s aircraft carrier–like airport, past the turquoise rings that mark shallow coral reefs and shoals and pods of dolphins leaping in the distance, to the lush, boomerang-shaped island of Bodu Hithi, it’s clear that you’ve arrived. Holiday mode — with cool, scented towels and chilled bottles of water to ameliorate the humid tropical air — starts now.

Coco Bodu Hithi is a relatively new development. Built in 2006 as a high-end haven of luxury and service, there are six excellent restaurants, a water sports center and dive school, and a gorgeous spa — not to mention pristine stretches of white sand, a coral reef teeming with marine life just off the beach, and a glass-walled infinity pool.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3021/prop-44722-1341955878-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Water Villas feature a private terrace and pool, plus a split-level sundeck.”}The resort’s thatch-roofed accommodations include spacious Island Villas, which have sea-facing decks and free-standing bathtubs with unobstructed views of the Indian Ocean; Water Villas, which have private plunge pools and direct sea access; and Escape Water Villas. The latter, the most recent addition to this already luxe property, comprise a sort of resort-within-a-resort set on its own oval-shaped pier.

Escape guests have access to a whole host of VIP perks, including a 24-hour butler, free buggy service around the island and airy bathrooms with Molton Brown toiletries. A sunset cruise and daily high tea are other benefits. And then there’s the private restaurant and bar, Stars, which serves modern Maldivian cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails.

The resort’s good looks, top-notch amenities and helpful staff are complemented by its proximity to a stunning house reef (around 30 feet away). Because, after all, the real star of the show is nature. Baby blacktip reef sharks cruise the shallows, hermit and ghost crabs roam the beach, and at night the ocean sparkles in myriad silvery shades, a mesmerizing display that makes it hard indeed to leave this amazing resort, tucked away in a discreet corner of the North Malé Atoll.

heaven on earth

I held my breath. My heart was beating wildly with excitement! Finally I saw the sea turtle…

I was snorkeling in the warm, shallow turquoise waters around the Island Bodhu Hiti. (Paradise on earth) and the magnificent world of underwater life was gently revealing itself in front of my eyes.

Endless fish, Manta rays, sting rays, sharks, corals glowing and sparkling in the equatorial sun.

You don’t have to be an expert! Come and just float with flippers.

We danced together for 20 minutes and then the sea turtle dived deeper and deeper and disappeared.

I couldn’t see it anymore…

Paradise on earth is the amazing island Bodhu hiti.

Soft, white sand and the friendliest jungle you can imagine. We walked barefoot during our vacation. We enjoyed the wonderful cocktails on the beach watching the unbelievable beautiful sunsets.

Each evening dinner was a new adventure. Exploring Exotic international cuisine from all the distant unique points of the globe, and the staff! The best caring staff!

Thank you!!! We love you and we will come back soon!!!
