The next island to be explored by us was Kuramathi. We stayed in a beautiful beachvilla with a Jacuzzi which gave the whole experience some extra spice.
Set in Rasdhoo Atoll, on one of 5 islands located in this tiny archipelago, Kuramathi island offers a naturally Maldivian holiday experience, with unique twists to suit everyone. Located 56 kilometres west from Male’ International Airport, the island is over 1.8km long. Guest villas are scattered around lush gardens, facing secluded areas of long beaches or poised over water. Many areas of the island remain untouched, inviting guests to leisurely stroll along deserted beaches or through virgin vegetation.
What we liked most about Kuramathi:
- The greeness almost Jungle feeling and the Botanic walk.
- The sting-ray feeding.
- The eco center with some interesting facts about the sealife.
- The sandbank.
- Getting to know a real Maldivian local who told us a lot of backround info about the Maldives.
- The evening light.
Being nicely welcomed at Kuramathi Lobby. Starting the day with some fresh pasta and a glass of white.Afternoon SPA Treatment. Impressed by the heavy vegetation. – It was by far the greenest island on our trip. We enjoyed the green-house lecture by Roshan Chhetri from India. They grow their own vegetables and plants. With freshly pedicured feet – off to the pool. Getting a tan. They even have their own little nature museum. Spectacular sting-ray feeding on the beach. Having a nice fresh grilled fish with Nastassja. Saying goodbye and heading to the next island. Enjoy three more Maldives parts every second Friday. More to come: Velassaru, Cocoa Island and the last about Malé (Maldives’ capital).
