Award-winning overwater restaurant Aqua at Coco Bodu Hithi to host renowned chef Skye Gyngell. Skye will be hosting two divine dinners on February 17 and February 19, as well conducting a special masterclass for guests on February 18.
Originally from Australia, Skye Gyngell is now one of Britain’s most respected and acclaimed chefs, most recently having been named Female Chef of the Year by Square Meal. Skye is chef patron at the hugely popular restaurant, Spring at Somerset House, and also culinary director at the beautiful Heckfield Place in Hampshire.
After initially training in Sydney and then Paris, Skye moved to London to work at The French House as well as with a number of high-profile private clients before taking on the role of head chef at Petersham Nurseries. It was at Petersham that Skye became renowned for her distinctively seasonal, elegant cooking, earning the establishment a Michelin star in 2011. Skye was the Independent on Sunday’s food writer for five years, and had worked at Vogue as food editor prior to that. She has also published four books: A Year in My Kitchen (2006), My Favourite Ingredients (2008), How I Cook (2010) and Spring (2015), all to great acclaim.
Coco Bodu Hithi offers an array of culinary options, from Maldives fine dining to beach barbecues, there’s something different for guests to discover every night. Air is the home of its diverse breakfast buffets and themed dinners. Aqua is the fine-dining restaurant with a seafood specialty. Tsuki offers the true taste of Japanese cuisine. Stars fuses flavors of the East with those of the Mediterranean. Latitude is a cocktail lover’s dream and the Wine Loft an oenophile’s heaven. And if you simply can’t leave the sanctuary of your villa, you can select from an In-villa menu with a wide range of food and drinks from its Maldives Restaurants, including dishes perfect for little ones.
About resort: Part of Coco Collection, luxurious and contemporary, with superb private pool villas and an idyllic overwater spa, the island paradise of Coco Bodu Hithi is located in North Male Atoll and is a 40-minute speedboat ride away from Malé International Airport. Even in low season, Coco Bodu Hithi has a very high occupancy rate. Opened in 2005, with its fabulous atmosphere this modern, romantic 5-star resort undoubtedly makes an impression on couples and so popular because it is reasonably priced and is elegantly modern yet distinctly Maldivian. There are 100 villas (44 on the sand, 66 over the water), and each comes with its own small pool and outdoor shower, not to mention the design of the indoor bath, and the Nespresso coffee maker. There are six chic restaurants, two open air cocktail bars, extensive thatched overwater spa and a fitness center (with ocean views!). An uncrowded infinity swimming pool and a large selection of activities, including scuba diving and snorkeling in the lagoon. .

Despite all these facilities, guests - especially at night - tend to seek privacy in a private getaway, possibly with a bottle from Wine Loft. Read Full Review
Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is a quiet place in the Maldives where you will find luxury, beauty and privacy at reasonable prices. The resort very well takes care of its environment and creates guests all for a 5-star beach experience in tropical paradise. Dhuni Kolhu is ahead of other hotels in its category by quality, design and amenities. This is a top class, but a simple, laid-back package of key Maldives elements - diving, snorkeling, beach, island and accommodation. Half a mile from tip to tip, a private island of medium size is populated with 98 villas. Snorkeling and scuba diving is awesome amd the guests can freely walk between two restaurants, SPA and sports grounds, using shady paths entwining the lush jungle. The removal of the island takes 30 minutes by seaplane from Male airport. Snorkeling and scuba diving is awesome and the resort offers a number of fun tours, but there is no pool on the island.
