The Blue Lagoon coffee shop and bar do exactly as they say on the sign and if that’s not enough for you check out…
The Laguna Grill by the beach. It has a great barbeque.

Kuramathi Resort Maldives Activities
The diving school, based down at the Village end of the island, offers you open PADI certified water diving courses and some of the
best diving to be found in the Maldives.
The staff have a broad knowledge base, excellent training skills and multilingual to boot. From novice to professional you’ll be able to discover the drop off points, coral caves, sharks and rays that make the Kuramathi Resort Maldives in our experience, a premier dive destination.
There’s a great swimming pool at the midpoint of the island as well as a children’s pool. A range of water sports for all including, windsurfing (and on the north side of the island you can have a good run from the beach and back). The catamaran sailing around the island is fun, waterskiing for the speed addicts, canoes and kayaks for the upper body workout!
For the land based sportsmen and sportswomen you’ve tennis, a fully equipped gym and volleyball. The less actively inclined may wish to exert themselves at billiards or table tennis, failing that, let others do the work for you and go on a day trip! The ubiquitous sunset cruise, island hopping and shopping are there to enjoy.
The Spa offers a range of massages and treatments in relaxed surroundings, lots of fountains, cool tiles and beautiful plants. There’s the spacious treatment room on stilts over the water with long white muslin curtains moving in the breeze… hmmm beautiful…
Kuramathi Resort Maldives Specialities
The Blue Lagoon Resort offers trips to Kandholhu; an island of so few bungalows you are almost alone. It is pretty classy stuff set among the sand and palms with all mod cons and excellent food. Often honeymooners choose this as a two-day trip to cosset themselves before returning to the city lights of Kuramathi!
The snorkelling on Kandholhu is a real treat and the reef is monitored and protected so no standing on the coral… ever, ok? You can book this trip either before you go or once you’re on Kuramathi blue lagoon Maldives.
Hmm… Anything Else Catch Your Eye?
It's easy to spot the tides on Kuramathi so be careful when you go snorkelling out over the reef, as at low tide you can find yourself with not much sea between you and the coral as you swim back. It’s not as hard as you think. Charley and I snorkelled everyday and we simply waited for the tide.

If you get a bungalow nearest the reception you can watch the sting ray feeding from your balcony well, why stand when you can sit!
A sand bar extends from the Blue Lagoon at low tide out into the ocean for about a kilometre. It’s long meandering path of sand seemingly holding the ocean back as you stroll along... and if you'd like to know which rooms are closest to this
