Coco Palm is exceptional. We spent a few nights in both a beach bungalow and an overwater bungalow. The nice thing about the property is that it offers a great combination of:
- beautiful beaches
- exceptional on-sight snorkeling
- excellent food
- overwater bungalows
- a relatively short flight from Male
There are two primary dining options. We preferred the more intimate Cornus restaurant where everything is served a la carte. Cowrie only offers buffets. We also didn't like it that at Cowrie we were assigned a seat on our first night and then nearly forced to sit in the same spot on subsequent evenings.
If you stay here, book a room on the west side of the island (same side as the overwater bungalows). During our visit, the tide nearly washed away the beachfront on the north and east sides.
The overwater bungalows are highly recommended. The reef is teeming with life and you can do excellent snorkeling just off the deck. It is also fun to watch the rays swim in to the lights in the evening.
