Sun kissed beaches, the far reaching Indian Ocean, the richness of marine life are a few of the things you can expect to see in this part of the world. Couple that with world class spas, sumptuous seafood barbeques and taxi rides by air and you have painted a picture of the Maldives. This paradise destination is all about kicking back and making the most of the indulgences before you. And there is no better way to indulge than by booking a stay at one of the spectacular Maldives luxury resorts.
The island cluster is home to hundreds of secluded sand banks that rise ever so slightly above the surface of the ocean. To visit one of these deliciously private locales all you have to do is inform the concierge at Kurumba Maldives. A sand bank picnic is a wonderful way to spend a few hours and the most beautiful setting one can imagine in which to enjoy a meal. A speedboat will arrive to pick you up from the jetty and whisk you away on your adventure. Enjoy bouncing over the waves to your destination. A mini motorboat is needed to take you right up to the sand bank. There is only one rule and that is to leave all footwear behind!
Though you can ask to have an umbrella set up, the sun can be quite strong during the day. If you prefer cooler weather, plan your excursion to allow breakfast at sunrise or cocktails followed by dinner at sunset. Your guides will set up a table and deck chairs shaded by an umbrella or even a tent for extra comfort if needed. You can also admire the corals that are visible through the clear water, swim or snorkel around the sand bank.
