#1 Maldives Honeymoon Destination, Coco Bodu Hithi 2018
This was THE destination of my dreams. I spent tireless amounts of hours researching where to stay for our honeymoon, reading reviews, blogs and analysing every detail in Tripadvisor and it all came down to this beautiful resort - Coco Bodu Hithi. One of the best Maldives honeymoon destinations, in the beautiful Indian Ocean.
This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget staying at one of the most luxurious hotels I've ever experienced. Ever! This was a true Island escape, you know, the one in your imagination, wearing white linen clothes that float with the wind across your body, the beautiful silky white sand between your toes, the warm breeze on your skin and sun-kissed glow. YES! That place is here.
Coco Bodu Hithi Resort is part of the Coco Collection, based in the North Male Atoll and about a 40-minute speedboat ride from the mainland, Male. Coco Bodu Hithi has been awarded many prestigious awards including "Luxury Honeymoon Hotel of Maldives" by World Luxury Hotel Awards and it also made the cut in the "Top 10 Maldives Resorts" of 2016/2017.
My breath was literally taken when I first set eye's on the beaches of this beautiful resort. Arriving in grand style by private speed boat, we were greeted by exceptionally attentive staff who made us feel so welcomed and ever so special, service was not spared by any means with staff readily available and anticipating needs.
Now for our over water villa ~ The "Coco Residence"..... absolutely Beyond!! My Husband (Veli) and I absolutely LOVE snorkeling so we simply could not divert from these beautiful Villa's. You literally dive off your deck into the water and can swim out to the "drop off" where the fish are a plenty, bright and colourful. We were even lucky enough to see Dolphins and (Reef) Sharks! We spend most of our time at our Villa - the room service and cocktails were perfect to settle into the sunsets after a long day in the water.
For those who enjoy some adventure, there is a water sports club too, Veli and I went on a snorkeling trip to see the Manta Rays, however they were in no mood to show face, BUT we did see dolphins. :) We also went fishing and we caught so many fish, the food and beverage team were able to BBQ some fish for us which we had for lunch on our deck served with salad and fries....... look at those fish..... and super cute Toms boat shoes :P
