    Our opinion

    "A serene and intimate resort, great for couples"

    Hotel description

    A tranquil and intimate resort, Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is located on a beautiful island with glorious beaches, washed by crystal-clear turquoise waters and fringed with lush vegetation. Delightful thatched villas are dotted amongst the palm trees or located over the lagoon, with spectacular views of the sea and nearby desert islands. For extra romance we recommend upgrading to a Deluxe Villa or a Lagoon Villa with a four poster bed, sunken bath and private terrace with fresh water plunge pool. There are two restaurants and two bars, including one built on stilts over the lagoon. Cowrie serves international cuisine with live cooking stations and a buffet. Cornus is the speciality dining venue, offering Thai cuisine and an open-air grill serving fresh fish and seafood. The Balinese-style Coco Spa provides a range of treatments and exotic healing therapies in the seclusion of a private pavilion. A multi purpose recreation complex offers a variety of entertainment and activities including indoor games, table tennis, badminton and volleyball. Water sports at the resort include water-skiing, sailing and snorkelling on the island's house reef. There are plenty of excursions which you can pre-book such as a romantic overnight stay on a private Robinson Crusoe-style island or a Private Cinema complete with classic movie and champagne.
