It’s been called “an emerald jewel in the turquoise Maldivian waters,” and with a first glance at the Kuramathi Island Resort, you’ll no doubt agree. Surrounded by coral reefs, the Maldives are famous as havens for snorkeling and diving, enabling you to see myriad varieties of marine life — life that is treasured, respected, and conserved by the island inhabitants. But the sea, wondrous as it is, is only one part of the beauty of this resort. Stay in rooms on the beach or villas on stilts in the water, literally steps away from a dip; enjoy a private Jacuzzi suite or sunbathe on a two-level deck; or pull out all the stops in a secluded one-bedroom suite complete with your own lap pool: the choice is yours at Kuramathi Resort.
A plethora of activities await on the island: see native animals and plants, learn about edible and medicinal flora, have a laugh at the antics of hermit crabs, or gaze upward into the topmost branches of a banyan tree and watch for cranes. Love sports? The resort offers both an infinity pool and a freshwater pool, a gym, and tennis courts. Get some much-needed pampering at Kuramathi Spa, with care programs based on traditional rituals from Europe, India, Thailand, and Indonesia. Hungry? Three main restaurants offer international buffets, and seven à la carte restaurants serve cuisine from all over the globe. In addition, six bars are available to serve your choice of beverage — and mood. Anything else you need? Just ask. The Kuramathi Island Resort experience is designed for you to — as the staff say — “be spoiled.”
