Coco Collection announces array of Valentine’s activities
This Valentine’s Day, guests at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu and Coco Bodu Hithi have the opportunity to indulge in an array of intimate dining experiences, spa rituals and surprises. From long stemmed red roses to chocolate surprises, celebrate the day in a Uniquely Coco way.
Valentine’s Day at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is the laid back kind of romance you need. Begin the day with a bubbly sunrise breakfast by the soft sandy beach under a palm tree. Savour classic favourites such as smoked salmon and freshly baked pastries as you raise a glass to welcome this special day. Afterwards, visit Coco Spa where the therapists have come up with some V-day specials. From coconut scrubs to milk baths, sparkling wine flutes and homemade chocolate truffles to nibble on, each ritual is designed as a holistic experience for two.
Dinner is a treat at the privacy of your own villa. Take date night to the next level with your very own chef as you enjoy the smoky flavours of seafood and grilled meats. After a moonlit dinner, retreat to your villa where it’s story time! Tale has it that Dhon Hiyala and Ali Fulhu is a famous Maldivian romance legend; the story of two lovers who were destined to be together and crossed oceans to find each other. Read the beautifully illustrated story, placed in your villa at turndown every night as a series of chapters.
At Coco Bodu Hithi, the chic ambiance of the island is the backdrop for Valentine’s Day, any day of the week. Treat your loved one to a special Romeo and Juliet dinner with beach dugout seating, five course menu, candlelight, champagne, and the company of waves lapping the shoreline. Are you in the mood to take it up a notch? Book a moonlight dinner cruise around the island, just the two of you; star gazing on the deck, grilled seafood on the side, with strawberry and rose petal parfaits to end the evening.
Both resorts have another special treat lined up for guests throughout the Valentine’s week; message in a bottle. Look out for glass bottles placed in certain spots on the island where they come with a special experience. From breezy sunset cruises to searching for turtles with the marine biologist, each bottle is a treat for two.
“With an abundance of experiences for couples, Valentine’s Day at Coco Collection is all about a continuous celebration of love. So celebrate romance the island way, and surprise loved ones with truly exceptional moments,” an announcement by Coco Collection read.
