During my seven month stay in Maldives, aside from Male, the capital, I visited several other islands one of which is Kurumba Maldives, the first private island resort hotel and one of the best in the country and truly one of the world's best travel destination. Like Bandos Island Resort, Kurumba Maldives is carefully planned and well set-up without compromising the natural flow of man-made structures with surrounding environment.
Aside from offering white sand beach and romantic sceneries good for honeymooners, the surrounding waters of Kurumba Maldives is rich with fauna making it a diver's favored destination point. Kurumba is actually the pioneer of the hotel island resort industry in Maldives.
Our whole band went to Kurumba Maldives and had lunch there. I remember, they also had in captivity a "stone shark" which was motionless the whole 15 minutes I observed it...hmmm.. must be stoned...hence the name..hehe... We had a wonderful lunch after which we just relaxed on the sun decks while we waited for our ride.
