31 August, 2019
Coco Bodu Hithi will welcome back highly renowned MasterChef Judge Monica Galetti this October, where she will be hosting two delightful six-course dinners on 22nd and 25th October and a masterclass on 23rd October for guests.
Samoan-born, New Zealand-raised Monica Galetti moved to the UK in the late ‘90s to work alongside Michel Roux Jr at his two Michelin-star restaurants Le Gavroche. Today, she heads up Mere restaurant in London, serving up a fusion of South Pacific and French cuisine, and is also a judge on BBC Two’s MasterChef: The Professionals. Monica is also the author of two bestselling books: Monica’s Kitchen and The Skills.
Monica’s dinners and masterclass will be nothing short of a culinary journey, as she will be tapping into the island’s fresh seafood resources accentuated with the influence of her South Pacific heritage to create a unique menu embellishing the resort’s award-winning restaurant Aqua’s reputation for great seafood. Monica’s signature dish will also remain on the restaurant’s menu on a seasonal basis, ensuring that the future guests also get a taste of the specially designed menu.

Coco Bodu Hithi
Best Experience: Couples, Beach, Diving
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. The resort is 45 minutes by speedboat from Malé airport; those who prefer to be closer must check Taj Exotica, just 15 minutes by boat. Read Full Review...
