A taste of paradise in Kurumba Maldives

I don’t know where to start. I have a lot to say about this amazing resort.  We went to Kurumba to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and I must say I have booked the right hotel.

Arrival:

While we arrived in Ibrahim Nasir International airport, the Kurumba agents were waiting for us and were really helpful. They checked our names and our luggage and directed us to the speedboat. The speedboat took 10 minutes to reach the island and while on our trip to the island, they had offered us cold towels and cold water to refresh ourselves.  When we reached the island, we were escorted to the lobby and while waiting we were offered cold coconut ice cream sobert.

Check into our room:

We have chosen a deluxe beach front bungalow and when we reached our bungalow, they had offered us a bottle of wine and a nice welcoming note. The room is just a few seconds away from the ocean where we can take a swim. The room was spacious, stylish and had all facilities we need including mini bar, Free Wi-Fi, complimentary fine selection of tea, etc…  The tub and the outdoor shower was surrounded by a small garden.

 

Island beach and activities

The island has an amazing sandy white beach with a turquoise colored clear water. We also enjoyed the view, the reefs, the sand and the weather as well. We spend our day at the beach swimming, snorkeling, tanning and relaxing and also the hotel lets us take the snorkeling gears, canoeing boats, pedaling boats for free. Mr Bandara, the bartender makes really good cocktails. We even got to free wine where the hotel hosts a free wine tasting event. The stools are placed in the middle of the lagoon and you can enjoy these wines while enjoying the sunset. It was incredible. The hotel also provides cold ice cream and fresh cold fruits every day. We have never enjoyed a holiday much as this one.

 

Restaurant and food

Kurumba Maldives have 12 different restaurants which specializes in different cuisines such as international, Japanese, Asian, contemporary, etc… We enjoyed every bit of these dinners. Mr. Adam was our host during our free complimentary honeymoon dinner. He is a true asset to the resort and we enjoyed his company.

 

Entertainment and excursion

Kurumba offers complimentary games like ping/pong games, baby foot, billiard, etc… which we enjoyed tremendously. We even loved the dolphin sunset cruise, sandbank picnic and etc… It wasn’t expensive at all and they even included complimentary wine.

They had a really nice spa, the staffs were really professional and the massage treatment was amazing. I would suggest the indoor massage equipped with better sound isolation as to avoid the plane noises while enjoying the massage.

Alas, after a week in this beautiful paradise, our honeymoon adventure came to an end. The time and the money was definitely worth it.
