The breathtaking Kurumba Maldives Resort
The name of this resort is inspired by the local word for “coconut”, one of the most commonly seen plants in the region. Second, it’s the location – on the North Malé Atoll, a 10 minutes speedboat journey from Malé International Airport and the capital of Malé.
And then, there’s the resort itself – the minute you arrive, the staff welcomes you with refreshments and the breathtaking surroundings start to overwhelm you – the clear azure waters of the Indian Ocean, the soft, pristine white sands on the beach, the superb vegetation on the island, featuring lush gardens with hibiscus, bougainvillea and frangipani, while thick coconut groves hide the resort’s homes.
Comprising a total of 180 luxury accommodation facilities, including villas and bungalows, Kurumba sports boasts with 8 different types of lodgings, all of them embodying top notch amenities and a modern feel. Starting with the Deluxe and Superior rooms, we couldn’t help notice the colonial design, stylish, with teak-finished interiors, sunbathed ocean-side terraces and open air showers.
The signature Deluxe Beach Bungalows are hidden deep within the vegetation in horseshoe arrangements, boasting with king-sized four-poster beds, coquette gardens with lavish deck verandas and outside showers, huge freestanding bathtubs glass-walled showers and exquisite bathrooms with dual basins, all in close proximity to the gorgeous white beach.
In addition, a plethora of dining options awaits guests. A total of nine restaurants are ready to bring smiles to tourists’ faces, serving some of the finest dishes in the world.
