VIP Trip: Maldives
Being based in the UAE means that we’re just a stone’s throw away from some of the best holiday destinations in the world. One such gem is hidden in the Maldives. Kurumba is, in our opinion, one of the finest holiday getaways for anyone looking for that slice of paradise. With a wide range of accommodation, from pool villas to beach bungalows – all linked to the many dining venues and entertainment areas with a meandering pathway within lush tropical gardens – Kurumba Maldives offers guests the complete resort experience. The island is just 10 minutes from the main airport via speedboat, so you won’t lose any valuable relaxation time.
For those of you who think the Maldives is only for sunbathing, you’re wrong! Kurumba has a number of activities available for guests, including scuba diving, wind surfing, kayaking, catamaran sailing, parasailing and snorkelling.
Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a first-timer, water skiing is ideal in the Maldives, thanks to the perfectly still waters. Instructors are on hand to teach anyone who needs to learn the basics, and special kids’ tuition is also available.
Kurumba Maldives offers a variety of meal plans, and the breezy alfresco dining at Maldivian restaurant Thila is a must for both the views and the food.
With 11 outlets in which to eat and drink, plus in-villa dining, you’ll never get bored of indulging at Kurumba. From Far Eastern and Arabic, to Italian and Indian, there are cuisines for all tastes. Hamakaze, (above) provides a lively and sumptuous experience in its overwater restaurant.
One of the coolest features is showering outdoors, but in the privacy of your villa. Sticking with the alfresco theme, why not try a massage on the beach? Visit the Veli Spa for more options.
