Kuramathi island

Maldives , the smallest Asian country covering an area like Andorra,a low-country of 2,3 m height,consists of a group of 26 atolls featuring 1190 islets.There are more than 80 islands which one only resort.Kuramathi island is the UNIQUE  Maldivian island with 3 resorts.

On Kuramathi are the Lagoon resort,the Cottage and Spa with both Waterbungalows ,Beachbungalows and the Village with Beachbugalows only.

Don't worry guys,for your moving on this huge island of 1,6 km long and 300 m wide,you get minibuses and electric cars covering the main road!As there are no macadam road and paths,you have to walk barefoot on a sand like flour but you save the surprising cost of flipflop!

We had 5 nights in Kuramathi Cottage and Spa Beachbungalows and 5 in the Waterbungalows.We went to this resort,in the island's middle because it offers the best island's snorkelling and the WB face the House reef(those of the Lagoon don't).

On top of that,it has ,in my opinion and taste,the best canteens:we had 4 dinners in the Thai restaurant and the chef has accomodated the courses according to our taste,very low spicy!We had few buffet dinners in the main restaurant and all our lunchs at the Seaview Coffee shop.The best choice in my opinion is the B and B which also could be the less expensive.

The bungalows are spacious,very clean,but a little outdated and unfortunately there is no TV in this resort!!!

We didn't use the seawater pool,paradise of few young children and people being afraid of our friend the "pets" like stingrays and

gentle sharks.

Sadly,close to Equator,we got during 10 days any raindrop:we have to go back!

Hmmm. I will have to find deals for this place. We stayed on a TINY island with no other food options than the buffet.
