OMG….. if you want paradise this is totally the place to be!
Wow. Where do I even begin. From the minute we arrived in Male airport we were in heaven. Even the waiting room at the seaplane part of the airport was relaxing, comfortable and luxurious. But the sea plane journey was amazing and a great start to the holiday. Seeing the many beautiful islands dotted within the Indian ocean was a sight worth seeing. Then landing just off the coast of our island was such an experience. The last leg of our journey was a very short boat ride to the reception of Kuramathi island – our home for the next 12 nights.
On arrival the shoes came off and the sunglasses went on. It was paradise. After our check we had a 2 hour wait until our room was ready so we chose to have a wonder so a wonder along the beach was the first port of call.
Once the room was ready we got in and were not disappointed. We had chosen the most basic room, the garden villa. But it was brilliant. Right on the beach with a 4 poster king sized bed and an outside shower 😀😀
The food was incredible. We chose the upgraded A la carte option giving us the ability to dine in all the beautiful restaurant’s on the island, including an amazing this, a seafood restaurant over the water, an island bbq and many others. With a large choice of cocktails, wine and ice cream sundaes we wernt going to be watching our weight.
And yes there is not much to do on an island only a mile long but the swimming was incredible. Along with snorkling with many sharks and beautiful fish we were lucky enough to swim with both a Turtle and 2 manta rays.
We celebrated Brad turning 36 whilst we were there which was certainly the most exotic place he will ever spend a birthday. It was just so lovely spending quality time together after such a difficult start to the year and make beautiful memories together which will last a lifetime.
And through the power of Facebook we also managed to bag ourselves an amazing upgrade for the last 2 nights. To the most incredible water villa ever! Watch my video to see where we got to stay…..!
Well I won’t say any more but watch my video to see our week.
Thank you to Kuramathi Island for looking after us so well, to my late mum who we lost over a year ago but her money left to me helped me fulfil this dream holiday and to Brad for making my time away so special. Xxxx
