The Coco Palm Bodhu Hithi is a luxury 5* resort located just a speedboat ride from Male that feels a million miles away. Have the opportunity to explore the underwater world on a snorkeling tour, or enjoy your day with a re-energizing yoga class before soaking up the sun on the beautiful white beaches.
Though the Coco Palm Bodhu Hithi halal resort is truly a great halal holiday, we do pick out certain rooms and villas in which we think will meet the best standards any Muslim traveller would be looking for on a luxury halal getaway. Our recommended room type is the Island Villa, which offers the ultimate in privacy and seclusion. Set in its own private, leafy garden a few steps away from the white beach, each spacious villa has its own private plunge pool and outdoor shower in the rear of the villa ensuring complete privacy.
The villa also includes a large luxury Jacuzzi, sunken living area and full entertainment system for those nights you want to hide away inside. Coupled with friendly Maldivian hospitality, beautiful beaches and endless views of the horizon, the Coco Palm Bodhu Hithi is an ideal honeymoon destination. While you’re here, why not spend an afternoon in the spa enjoying the complimentary Jacuzzi, cold plunge, sauna or steam room, all of which overlook the endless blue seas.
Halal food is served for all Serendipity clients. Any non halal items at the resort are prepared separately in designated kitchen areas.
