Your three main meals are taken in the splendid Haruge restaurant with wonderful sea views and huge wooden rafters on show. As well as the buffet, there’s the grill that cooks up plenty of fish, chicken and other delights.
The additional restaurants are Thai, Seafood and Indian all available to you. Because the island is large, the restaurants are set among a combination of formal garden and tropical forest. This adds to the experience. Charley and I give the Thai a big thumbs up, excellent each time we’ve been on our Maldives Holiday!
Next to the water's edge and tucked behind tall trees is the Fung Bar. A central atrium of seats under hanging rafters. The bar is built as if it were a dhoni boat caught on the sand at high tide. There are plenty of cocktails and bands entertain a couple of times a week.
Kuramathi Island Maldives Activities
The Dive centre for Kuramathi is excellent. Well staffed and providing classes for everyone. There’s house reef diving with access from the beach and drop off points for free dives by boat both day and night. The reefs around Rasdhoo are known for their spectacular marine life. Last time I looked a complete beginner could train up and have their first dive for $80.
There’s a football pitch… well, sand pitch really, it’s popular and a great way of mixing with the staff on the island.
You can join the gym up at the Cottage and Spa for a nominal sum. This will give you access to a pretty good fitness room and tennis courts. Charley and I tend to go for a run followed by a 30 minute workout. Just so we could squeeze in a second helping at breakfast, you understand!
The Spa has a range of massage and health & beauty treatments. You can book these at reception or over the phone.
Plenty of water sports including catamaran sailing, water skiing, canoeing, banana rides and similar water based silliness with inflatable rubber.
Kuramathi Village Maldives excursions include the sunset cruise and a shopping trip to Rasdhoo Island. This is worth visiting to have a nose around, not only to see how the Maldivians spend their time, but to browse the plethora of gift shops selling just about everything... take your purses and haggle!
There's also deep sea fishing for the brave and adventurous - get a few of you together disappear for the afternoon and come back with dinner for the entire island!
Kuramathi Island Maldives Specialities
Kuramthi Village offers a unique excursion for the lovebirds amongst you. The Coral Romance experience takes you to another island to enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach and an effervescent Champagne breakfast in bed inside your Water Villa. If that isn’t blissful enough, you also get a couples' spa treatment.
The snorkelling is really good on Kuramathi island Maldives. Listen to the advice from the staff when you arrive about the currents and pop along to the marine centre too. There's a world out there under the water and it’s all yours. Hire your snorkel, mask and fins (or flippers in old money) on your first day so you get your size right. They’re part of your all inclusive holiday package, so obviously popular.
Hmm… Anything else catch your eye?
A bit of a bugbear for some, no sunbeds on Kuramathi Island Maldives. So if you don’t want to lie on the sand we recommend asking your housekeeper how to pick up an inflatable bed or two; failing that buy one from the gift shop. The better ones come in at about $30 and you can always leave it for someone else when you go.

Giving a tip to your room keeper in advance is recommended. It shows your generosity and it means you’ll have flower petal designs on your bed during your stay. This applies to any of the Maldives island resorts. The rooms are great at the village, and if you'd like to know
