Coco Bodu Hithi offers hospitality that is stylish and sophisticated but most importantly sustainable. From the lush green palms to the vivid coral reef, preserving and protecting the unique beauty of this natural island paradise is our focus and at the forefront of everything we do.
To support the environment and the local community, we run an eco beach resort by recycling, conservation and use of organic local produce whenever possible. We also encourage our guests to get involved with our efforts, to learn about the amazing island wildlife and discover the wide variety of sea-life that feeds around the coral.
Our resident marine biologist, Chiara Fumagalli, is onsite to make sure that nature is protected and is always happy to share her knowledge of the island during your stay. Guests and staff are encouraged to join her on-going guest education programme which includes guided snorkelling tours, diving and fishing trips, a weekly evening Marine Biology Show and regular information sessions.
The coral reef is beautiful but extremely fragile and constant work is undertaken to maintain the natural balance. Guests and team members regularly get involved with our Coral Nursery Projects where we stimulate and monitor coral re-growth using naturally broken coral.
At Coco Bodu Hithi, we observe careful guidelines to ensure sustainable practices during fishing excursions where guests can help chart and measure protected species including the size and number of fish captured as well as releasing fish that have not yet reached maturity. This valuable data is then forwarded to the Maldives' Marine Research Centre.
Together, we are committed to protecting the biodiversity of the Maldivian seas. All of our trips, excursions and experiences are respectful of the environment, so you can enjoy everything we offer whilst staying in complete harmony with nature.
