The Amazing Honeymoon at Kurumba Maldives
My husband and I visited Kurumba Maldives for our honeymoon recently. We are Indian but we live in Perth, Australia. We arrive back a few days ago on the 11th April 2016. We only stayed for a week but it was one of the most amazing experience of our lives.
Vinay of Kurumba Maldives was wonderful in making us feel comfortable the second we arrived and ensured that our accommodation and experience was pleasant. We didn’t have to wait very long to be given our room even though we arrived well before check-in and while we were waiting, we were taken on a tour of the island.
We chose a private villa, it was right on the beach front and also had a small outdoor plunge pool where could lie down and enjoy the beautiful sunset hues. The room was extremely spacious and was in great condition. Our room was more than what we needed and it was a really nice retreat to come to after being out in the sun all day. Our outdoor alfresco area had a lovely area to also lounge on and on the beach we had our own 2 sunbeds and hut area which was amazing.
The ocean was amazing and had a beautiful turquoise color and not rough at all. Not being strong swimmers both my husband and I appreciated the surrounding sea walls in the ocean, especially when we were snorkeling. There are some amazing corals and fishes to be seen in the waters.
Out of the restaurants, have to say the Ocean Grill was the most amazing food, although it did come with a slight price tag, their seafood dishes were to die for. We had our first champagne breakfast there and it was delicious, fresh juices, champagne and first-class service. The other mornings we ate breakfast at Vihamana restaurant as this was a buffet it was more our style. Both were included in our package so we could have chosen either every morning.
The Kurumba cafe also has very tasty food, and is open all day and night which was perfect for us when we get hungry at any time of the day, they also serve to the poolside which is another plus and delivery room service.
The beach bar is amazing! The decking sits on top of the ocean and you can see the fishes swimming around beneath you while you relax. They serve drinks all day long and I think by the time we left I tried every cocktail in the book. My favorite was the Irish Mint… mmmmmm!!! They do any drink you could possibly think off. We mostly drank when we were by the main pool area and when we went for the happy hour drinks between 6-7 pm. The beach bar often had some sort of entertainment. One night the Maldivians did their traditional song and dance and played the drums, it was so fun!! Another night a DJ came down and played some music, lots got up to dance as well that night, it was an amazing experience. The sand bar was on the other side of the island to where our villa was but it didn’t bother us.
We event on a dolphin sunset cruise of Kurumba Maldives where we saw amazing colors of the sun and the dolphins jumping in great joy. After that we on snorkeling but as we’re not strong swimmers, our tour helped us to be comfortable in the water and helped us take pictures of the event. We were able to take plenty of them for us to look at them in the future.
The service at Kurumba Maldives was amazing, at the bar, the restaurants, and the room service. We particularly remember Akbal and Hillary at the beach bar, there are many others I can’t remember their names, all remembered us each time they saw us they would wave and say hello and pop their heads round for a chat. All the staff were so friendly and approachable and go out of their way to ensure your stay is first class.
Kurumba Maldives is an amazing resort and I highly recommend this resort to anyone wishing to spend their honeymoon.
